Rate this movie:


Raghava Raju (Prakash Raj) and Janakamma (Jayasudha) are an old couple who live in a little village of East Godavari. Their grandson Raju (Sharwanand) also lives with them. For one Sankranthi festival, Janakamma missed her three children who have settled abroad and could not find time for their village or parents at least once a year. Rest of the story is all about how they teach a lesson to their children and make them realize the importance of old parents.

Sharwanand has got a slight beard in the movie and it looks good on him. He brought a slight change in his dialogue delivery to suit the village role he plays in the film. Anupama looks good in traditional attire and performs lively. Prakash Raj and Jayasudha gets tailor-made roles and they play them to the perfection. Praveen manages to get some good laughs.

Shatamanam Bhavathi is all about family bonding and values. It has an inherent message that kids should be grown on ethics and not on profit orientation. The conflict point between the old couple (divorce) looks odd. Director Satish Vegesna did a decent job with the film but then he should have taken care of the screenplay which gets slowed in the second half. Also, the climax is too preachy and will unsettle the audience.

Mickey J. Meyer's album will give you 'I heard it somewhere feel' but still the songs are likable. Sameer Reddy came up with colorful photography. Satish Vegesna's pen is effective at many places and is heart touching. Ramana Vanka's art direction is good and the editing is fine. Production Values of Dil Raju are grand as always.

Finally, Shatamanam Bhavathi despite some glitches conveys the intended message that 'NRIs should not run after dollars and ignore their roots'. The movie is good enough to attract family crowds this festival season.
