The trailers of Srirastu Subhamastu have impressed everyone all over. This film which has released all over today is quite crucial for Allu Sirish’s career. Let’s see whether this young mega hero impresses us and gets his much needed hit or not.
Sirish(Allu Sirish) belongs to a well to do family which is headed by Prakash Raj. Things in his family get disturbed when Srirish’s brother loves and marries a middle class girl against his father’s will.
In this crunch situation, Sirish falls in love with a yet another middle class girl called Anu(Lavanya) and reveals about this to his father. An upset Prakash Raj, gives him a piece of his advice and asks him to back off from the relationship.
An adamant Sirish, challenges his father that he will win his love by not using his family name. In this process, he woos Anu and right when the time things start getting positive, Anu’s father(Rao Ramesh) arranges her marriage with some one else.
Rest of the story is as to how Sirish manages to convince both Anu’s parents and his and finally comes out victorious.
One of the biggest asset of the film is the feel good nature of the story. Even though the film has a routine premise and predictable story line, the way the proceedings have been narrated makes things entertaining. The film is filled with romance, family emotions and comedy in right doses and gives the audience decent entertainment. Interval bang is very good.
Probably, this is the best performance and look for Allu Sirish till date. He has cleverly played to his strengths and goes with the mood of the film which is quite good. Sirish’s performance in crunch scenes is decent and his hard work shows off on screen. First half of the film has romantic moments and the second half is filled with memorable family elements.
Once again, Lavanya Tripathi gets a meaty role and impresses big time. Her homely look and emotional character works pretty well and is one of the highlights. Rao Ramesh is amazing as the doting father and his dialogues and chemistry with Lavanya is endearing. After a long gap, Ali gets a hilarious role and all his scenes with Subba Raju are just hilarious.
As said earlier, plot of the film is ages old and has nothing much interesting to offer. Prakash Raj’s character is diluted in the end as the senior actor has noting much to do in the film except for the climax.
Even though the climax is good, it feels like it has been ended in a hurry. A senior actress like Sumalatha should have been given some more importance in the film.
Production values by Geetha Arts are top notch and they have not shied away from making this film look rich. Thaman’s music is quite pleasing and goes with the mood of the film. Editing is top notch as the makers have cleverly packaged the film in a neat manner. Dialogues written are very good and so was the art direction.
Coming to the director Parasuram, he has done a superb job with the film. After having a predictable story line, the way he narrated the film with ample entertainment and good dose of emotions shows his talent. He also scores brownie points for extracting a good performance from Sirish and showcasing him in a very decent manner.
Srirastu Subhamstu will surely be the much needed hit that Allu Sirish is looking for in his career. If he chooses interesting scripts like these, he will go a long way in Tollywood. Good performances, entertaining comedy and moving family emotions through out the film are basic assets. If you go in with an open mind and ignore the predictability of the script, this film will not disappoint you at all. A simple and breezy watch.
