Srinivasulu/Seenu (Gopichand) is a fun loving guy who falls for a girl, Sailu (Regina) at first sight. He starts wooing her and when she agreed for his proposal, her family kidnaps her and tries to get her married to a rich guy. Seenu's father asks him to stay out of this mess. He agrees but goes on with the business of saving her. Rest of the story is how Seenu manages to win Sailu's hand.
Gopichand looks good and he is very much improved as an actor especially in emotional roles. Regina looks good and she performed okay in the role. The chemistry between them is also decent but was let down due to a bad romantic track. All the villains appeared as misfit. More than villains, they looked like clowns. Brahmi and Krishna Bhagwan were wasted. Sivaji Raja, Raghu Babu and 30 years Pruthvi manage to evoke some laughs in the film but their comedy track is largely boring. Savukar Janaki is good in a tiny role.
AS Ravi Kumar Chowdary who made a comeback with Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham, had a disastrous outing with this film. Soukhyam is a good example of a very bad product which failed in script and script. Probably Kona Venkat and Gopimohan are the culprits who dished out a real bad story and screenplay. The movie is predictable right from the start to the end. Dialogues penned by Sreedhar Seepana are also not up to the mark. The spoofs of 30 Years Prudhvi and Brahmi's entry at the end, have all failed. Further a very bad climax is a pain further. The family emotions, bond between the parents and necessary elevations scenes, what not every thing failed to work.
Anup Rubens disappointed big time. He came up with a poor music album and back ground score is further bad. Prasad Murella's camera work is average. Art work is average while Editing is really bad. A good 20 minutes or more can be easily removed from the film. The songs are shot well thanks to the good production values.
Finally, Soukhyam is a film which Gopichand will regret doing for a long long time. It is not advisable even if you have all the time in the world to watch the film!
