Kalyana Vaibhogame Movie Review

3.25 / 5.0

Nandini Reddy, who gave the superhit 2011 film Ala Modalaindi, and the 2013 flop Jabardasth, has helmed direction after a long gap. Let’s see whether her latest venture Kalyana Vaibhogame turns out as successful as her first venture.

Plot

Naga Shourya is a smart gaming expert who doesn’t prefer the monotonous married life. Malavika Nair, a doctor, is also of the same thought. But as fate would have it their parents decide to get them hitched. Visibly disturbed by this Shourya and Malavika hatch up a plan to escape from the wedding routine. What do they decide? Do they develop an affinity for each other in the process? Watch the movie to unravel these questions.

Star Performances

Naga Shourya looks good and pulls off his role with aplomb. Maalavika Nair has spoken her lines by herself, and she slips into her character easily. Raasi, who is seen on the big screen after a long gap, does a convincing job as the mother of Malavika. Paavala Shyamala, Aashish Vidyarthi, and Raj Madiraju ably support.

Analysis

Nandini Reddy seem to have learned a lesson from the flop of Jabardasth and has come out with a moderately good piece with Kalyana Vaibhogame.

Nandini Reddy has shown the contemporary family values in a convincing manner. Also, she has tried to drive home that the families also are impacted by the marriages of the members. 

What’s there?

  • The family sentiments are one of the highlights of the movie. 
  • The chemistry between Naga Shourya and Malavika Nair is appealing.
  • The second half of the movie is sprinkled with emotions that will strike the right chord with you. 
  • Lakshmi Bhoopal’s dialogues are commendable. 
  • The contemporary couple can relate themselves to certain scenes. 
  • The music of Kalyan Koduri is good.
  • Sometimes more than the story the moments of the film works. And Kalyana Vaibhogame too has its share of sweet instances.

What’s not there?

  • The movie seems to be dragging given that the premise is very simple. 
  • The movie has drawn inspiration from several Telugu movies including Nandini’s very own Ada Modalaindi. 

Verdict

The movie can be watched with your family….
