Son of Satyamurthy Telugu Movie Review
Viraj Anand's (Allu Arjun's) father, Prakash Raj is a rich kind man who loses everything to help people around him. He finally leaves the World leaving behind 300 Crore and lot of debts to the family. Standing for the values, Allu Arjun clears all those debts and lead a simple life along with his family. He is the sole bread earner of the entire family by working as a wedding Planner. His life takes sudden twists with the entry of Love and it brings in a lot of problems as well which have to be watched on big screen.
Coming to Allu Arjun, Full marks for the comedy timing he picked up from Julayi but he has to go a long way in emotional scenes. And coming to the other things, the styling looks awkward. Perhaps he is trying too much to justify the Stylish Star title. The different dialogue delivery he tried did not work like that of Daevuda slang in Race Gurram.
Samantha has just got one more role in which she is a heroine for the sake of it. There is no scope for anything beyond that. The movie has big names like Rajendra Prasad, Prakash Raj, Rao Ramesh, Brahmanandham, MS Narayana, Upendra, Sneha etc but all of them will not stay in your memory even up to leaving the theater. Such poorly written characters they have got.
Trivikram Srinivas always walk away with the major credit for his successful films, likewise he should now carry the blame as well. He failed make best use of resources as a director. Except for Bunny, he failed to manage 100% for any of the others. The script and screenplay is weak as well as Trivikram struggled to justify the message 'Viluvale Asthi'. Even his pen is losing its sharpens over the years and it is clearly felt in the movie once again.
Devi Sri Prasad will walk away with average credits for both the album and BGM work. Cinematography is colorful and Editing is very weak. Production Values are superb.
Couple of songs
Comedy here and there
Message in the climax
Dragging second half
Improper usage of the big casting
Finally, S/O Satyamurthy is an unexpected film in the combination of Trivikram and Allu Arjun. The Entertainment part which we expect takes a back seat. Definitely a one time watch but it fails to satisfy both the fans of Trivikram or Allu Arjun. Only the no competition and summer holidays should save it.
