Subramanyam For Sale Review, What’s Behind: Young hero Sai Dharam Tej is slowly making a stand of own with Mega brand helping this early innings. Producer Dil Raju hasn’t lost the trust on director Harish Shankar despite a flop ‘Ramayya Vasthavayya’ handed over this second project. With many positives around the movie, let us get into Subramanyam for Sale Review.
Subramanyam for Sale Story: Movie takes off in Kurnool wherein prestigious family headed by Reddappa (Suman) faces humiliation as his daughter Seetha (Regina) escapes to the USA to stall the arranged marriage. Obviously Reddappa has an opposition in Kurnool in the form of satires throwing villain Buchchi (Rao Ramesh). Reason behind Seetha’s breakout to the USA is to marry Ajay (Ranadheer), who obviously is a rogue. Thankfully our hero Subramanyam aka Subbu (Sai Dharam), the best materialistic personality gauging every moment of life in Dollars and cook Chinthakay (Brahmanandam) comes to rescue and Seetha becomes their best partner cum friend.
Facing aversion from family, Seetha has to now travel India at any cost to attend sister (Tejaswi Madivada) marriage. So, she takes help of Subbu to act as husband and they land in Hyderabad. Here comes twist, Subbu has few old unresolved problems with one more goon Govind (Ajay) and his sister Durga (Adah Sharma). How Subbu set rights every problem is rest, dealt in a humorous way.
Subramanyam For Sale Actors and Technicians: Who knows better than Harish Shankar to handgrip a hero’s image? Doing it with in given boundaries without using an iota of novel thought makes SFS a safest venture. In this sense, Harish Shankar did a pretty decent job taking care of Mega family image exploited on budding Sai Dharam. Story sounds age old and juiced without pulp from years. Shadowing this big disadvantage, Harish pulled off everything with a frolicsome entertaining treatment with an overused Satish Vegesna screenplay format. Here and there, Harish showed his unique style of approach serving Mega punches for Fans to munch. Harish’s directional abilities are far better tested in his earlier movies and SFS offered nothing new from him. Admitting all this, Harish’s extra ordinary writing abilities stood as biggest advantage. Ram Prasad’s camera work is humdrum and editing by Gowtham Raju is fair to middling. Action choreography of Ram Laxman had some great shakes. Mickey J Meyer’s BGM sounded anemic while main score for songs is fine. Guvva Gorinka remixed by Raj-Koti canned on Grand Canyon is best catchy moment. Production values of Dil Raju are spotless and stainless.
Till now, Sai Dharam never depended big on Mega family image to carry out a character given. Thanks to the dynamic definition of commerciality, Sai Dharam is shown here as compound admixture of Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan in all major occasions. Following their body language, mannerisms, dance moves, dialogue renderings etc; Sai was less into his originality and more into imbibing Mega brothers’ peculiarity. Good thing is, the trick worked out supremely and there’s continuous overflow goose bumps for Mega Fans right from ‘Thammudu’ ‘Made in Andhra’ song introduction to ‘Gabbar Singh’ interval to ‘Guvva Gorinika’ remix and it flown flamboyantly till end. Regina is rarest of Tollywood talents who can be lively, romantic, emotional, naughty, chirpy… give her any expression and she is sure to leave a mark. Seetha being the central character for whole film, Regina is a perfect choice. Brahmi presence served only to an extent with half baked laughs. Adah Sharma is fine. Dialogues on Rao Ramesh are well applauded. Suman, Naga Babu, Naresh stood as just ok. Ajay did a fine job. Prabhas Srinu, Fish Venkat, Gabbar Singh gang, Thagubothu Ramesh, Saleem Feku were side splitting. Kota’s Software dialogue is sure to register. Among the rest Surekha Vani, Pragathi, Jeeva etc struck to their portions.
Subramanyam for Sale Rating Analysis: For all those formula loving audience who damn don’t care for unfamiliarity in Telugu cinema, here is one more run-of-the-mill product with ample entertainment. If pleasing or enthralling or providing paisa vasool fun drive is the requirement, Harish Shankar and Sai Dharam offered it bountiful. Never going beyond a routine commercial fencing, they recreated an old fashioned backdrop sliced with well established treatment made SFS, an easy winner.
Movie takes off on a shaky note introducing the lead characters. Intriguing moments arrive late into narration even when Brahmi’s ho-hum humor pays big fine. Only when Regina, Sai develop a wonderful chemistry, movie gets a zing. Harish dragged it till the pre-interval action block which gave an up-heave. As the lead pair comes back to Kurnool in second half, the real entertainment begins. Though everything runs on predictable lines, Harish pitches up the film level from ‘Guvva Gorinka’ song and every episode from here on is delightfully dealt with a raised engagement quotient. There are plenty of shades like ‘Donga Mogudu, Brindavanam, Parugu,’ etc perceived in every scene, without pulling anymore feathers… more the inspiration, entertainment and less is the innovation, excitement.
Beyond all the criticism, ‘SFS’ stands a best family entertainer with tender emotions, decent family values, loads of fun, plenty of casting, Mega elements, well penned dialogues make it worth a 3 star rating. Commercially, ‘SFS’ is sure to rock on Box Office front till the arrival of next Mega films. Dil Raju being the marvelous, magnetic marketing brain, he is sure to boost the commercial verdict of SFS from a safe film to hit status.
