Harsha Chemudu, popularly known as Viva Harsha, has made his debut as a lead actor in the movie Sundaram Master, which was released in theaters today. Read the review to find out how it is.


In the remote village of Miryalametta, Sundar Rao (Harsha Chemudu) arrives as an English teacher with a mysterious mission beyond teaching English. How the English-speaking villagers treat him? Will he succeed in his mission? What happens eventually? These are the mysteries one would have to watch the movie to discover.

Plus Points:

Harsha Chemudu shines in his debut lead role, delivering a performance filled with witty banter and expressive acting, reminiscent of his previous work.

The humorous interactions between Harsha and the villagers are executed well, showcasing the innocence of their characters, particularly in the second half.

Balakrishna Neelakantapu and the rest of the cast deliver commendable performances, effectively engaging the audience.

Minus Points:

While the story’s simplicity is understandable, the director could have maintained a more fast-paced and gripping narration, especially in the second half, to sustain audience interest.

The first half of the film captivates with its comedic charm, but the snail-paced second half struggles to sustain the same level of humour. Unfortunately, the emotional scenes in the latter part suffer from deficiencies in execution.

In addition, the characters of Divya Sripada and Harsha Vardhan lack substantial impact on the overall narrative.

Additionally, certain scenes, such as the climax where Harsha Chemudu convinces Harsha Vardhan, feel unnatural and could have been better executed.

Technical Aspects:

Writer and director Kalyan Santhosh’s efforts to entertain the audience are evident, but a more substantial story and screenplay could have enhanced the film’s overall appeal.

While the music by Sricharan Pakala and cinematography by Deepak Yeragera meet satisfactory standards, the editing by Karthik Vunnava is seamless. The art department’s praiseworthy work deserves acknowledgment, and the production values are decent.


On the whole, Sundaram Master remains an okay comedy drama experience, buoyed by Harsha Chemudu’s decent performance and comedy scenes. However, the film’s thin plot, slow and weak screenplay, and lack of strong emotional depth in the second half present significant obstacles. Considering alternative entertainment options may be advisable this weekend. Rating: 2.5/5
