Kalyan Ram Kathi movie that has caught the attention of Telugu audience with the title controversy was released today. Katti movie has raised few expectations because of the interesting trailers and mass appealing poster designs. Kalyan Ram Kathi has given some positive vibes to the fans as all Nandamuri heroes films clicked well at the box office this year. They are expecting positive reviews for Kathi movie to sign off 2010 in style.
So, did Kalyan Ram manage to head in the same path? Did he pull off a hit with this Kathi. Let’s uncover the details in Kalyan Ram Katti movie review…
Ramakrishna (Kalyan Ram) is a football player who loves his family very much. He likes his younger sister Haritha (Saranya Mohan) to an extent that he does anything for her. Haritha has a knack off pulling the wrong button always. She never makes right choices and gets into trouble and Ramakrishna comes to her rescue at every instance. She also makes wrong choice in choosing her life partner (Shyam). He is a factionist Muthyam’s (Kota Srinivasa Rao) son and marries Haritha to take revenge upon her. Haritha slaps him when he tries to woo her and in turn he marries her to teach her a lesson. Ramakrishna comes to know about this and goes with his sister to her in-laws place to set the things right for her. What happens next sums up the story.
This is a usual brother and sister saga in a different setup. Story writer Vamsi tried to interweave age old sister sentiment formula and faction concept. Hence, there is ample chance for action as well as sentiment. However, the director failed to bring this on to the screen in a convincing way. Kathi movie starts off with a bang and cuts into the flashback of the protagonist.
Kathi heads in predictable lines with a tinge of entertainment mixed with little dose of family drama. It is Okay until the first half hour. As the story heads towards the main plot director went out of gas and started to make things look clumsy and unappealing. Saranya Mohan who seeks her brother’s help for anything elopes with her boyfriend all of a sudden and it isn’t given a reasonable answer. None of the family members except Kalyan Ram feel the pain or responsibility when Saranya goes missing. Instead they advice Kalyan Ram to move on with his own life and ask him to forget about his missing sister. Utterly unconvincing!!
When Kalyan Ram knows about the problems of his sister he takes the easy path by joining the gang of goons. He doesn’t revolt immediately and tries to find a solution in a simpler way. And by doing so the justice isn’t done to either the title or hero characterization. He simply walks around by playing pranks at Brahmanandam and Dharmavarapu when his sister is facing hell like problems in that house.
Director opted to fill in entertainment by heading in the way that is shown by films like Dhee and Ready. But it didn’t suit this film as the plot is pretty serious one. The reasons shown for Shyam falling in love with Saranya Mohan are silly. The film directly goes to climax out of nowhere. When the director thought of ending this film in such a way he should’ve done that much earlier without testing the patience of audience.
Kalyan Ram did well within his limitations. As always he excelled in action scenes and fell short of expectations in comedy scenes. He should take care on his expressions in comedy scenes as he looks like an amateurish actor while attempting comedy.
Sana Khan’s role is limited and she did an Okay job. Saranya Mohan is good in the sister role. Shyam has to maintain single expression throughout the film and he carried it with ease. Ajay’s role is introduced with a bang and was just limited to couple of scenes. He is wasted in this film. Kota Srinivasa Rao is brilliant as ever. Telangana Shakuntala is standard. Dharmavarapu is good. Brahmanandam tried to evoke few laughs. Venu Madhav did nothing noteworthy. Ahuti Prasad’s role is silly and looked spineless. Rest of the cast did according to the requirements of the script.
M. Ratnam’s dialogs are good at times. He wrote some powerful and meaningful dialogs in this film. Manisharma’s songs are below average. Only Rama Jaya Rama song is good on ears. Background score is nice though. Sarvesh Murari’s cinematography is good particularly in action episodes. Ram Lakshman once again banked on rope work to make the fights look grand and stylish. Editor Gowtam Raju has done a fine job. Production values are good. Kalyan Ram once again proved his mettle as a producer without compromising on the quality of the film.
Director Mallikarjuna once again failed to deliver after his poor Abhimanyu with the same hero. He didn’t learn anything from his mistakes and repeated them again in this film. He concentrated mainly on elevating heroism and action episodes. His direction in second half is a big letdown.
- Few action episodes might satisfy the mass audience.
- Kalyanram fooling Kota as “Naa Daivam” is hilarious.
- Beaten to the death storyline
Kathi might appeal to the audience who like to watch as many as half a dozen fights. If you are looking for some freshness and sense you can happily avoid this flick. Kathi will work as a great case study to learn how to make a bad film. Stay far way from this Katti by just reading the Movie Review. If you try to take a chance you would be stabbed by this Kathi.
