Inspired by the Sesirekha Parinayam episode in the classic film 'Maya Bazar' (1957 release), creative director Krishna Vamsi envisaged the latest film 'Sasirekha Parinayam'. The movie has Tarun and Genelia sharing screen space for the first time as the lead cast. Sunkara Madhu Murali has produced the film on Karthikeya Creations banner. The film has got released on January, 1st. We present a brief review on 'Sasirekha Parinayam' that defines the pros and cons in its narrative style.


Bujjamma alias Sasirekha (Genelia) is the only daughter of Tatabbai (Ahuthi Prasad), a Jamindar in Amalapuram. Sasirekha stays with her paternal uncle Sivaji Raja and aunt Surekha Vani in Kakinada, to pursue her studies in B.Sc. Computer Science.

On a fateful day, her stern father orders her to come back to their home town urgently. After her arrival, she realizes that her marriage has been fixed with an NRI and the engagement is done. Adding to her surprise, she comes to know that her marriage is on the next day. In a frantic pace to sort it out, Bujjamma expresses her discontent over the sudden marriage arrangements and tells her mother that she wants to meet the groom. But, her father wants to get her married off at any cost.

At this juncture, the groom Abhimanyu's (Tarun) father Gopala Krishna demands them to pay the balance dowry else he warns them of halting the marriage. Displeased with the money mindedness of groom's father, Bujjamma flees away from home with her jewels.

On the way, she comes across Abhimanyu (Tarun), the supposed to be groom while leaving the town. Abhimanyu learns from his brother that the bride had run away. He tags behind Bujjamma and intros himself as Anand.

Bujjamma wants to go to her friends place in Hyderabad secretly. Learning that her uncle (mama) Subbaraju and Abbulu (Raghubabu) are searching for her, she plans to run away with Anand to reach Hyderabad. During the eloping journey, she falls in love with Anand. Did Abhimanyu, who was moving with Bujji in the disguise of Anand, reveal to her that he was the groom? Did they both reach Hyderabad safe? What happened at the end? Watch 'Sasirekha Parinayam' to get your questions answered.

Performance of Artists

Tarun who was restricted to handsome lover boy characters, has enacted a matured role for the first time. His acting skills are plausible in the climax scenes which deserve applause. We could see a fresh new actor in Tarun with this flick.

Genelia's performance should be mentioned at this point. She bagged critical applause for her role of Hasini in 'Bommarillu', and now her style is on par with excellence. She has demonstrated a wide rage of expressions which could have been made possible by none other than her. Although she's a learner in Telugu, her synchronization with her acting in the scenes with lengthy dialogues has come out well. Genelia has once more restated with what she is best at - the bubbly jubilant girl.

Paruchuri Gopala Krishna as Tarun's father played a character that is distinct from his earlier mass roles. 'Ahuthi' Prasad who gave a good act in 'Chandamama', did well in this film. MS Narayana's even though short cameo has not failed to tickle the audience with his role of a Tax Payer.

Subbaraju, Sivaji Raja, Tulasi, Surekha Vani, Giri, performed well with in the scope of their roles.

Technicians Work

The most widely known fact is Krishna Vamsi's films will sure have a colorful rich look in every frame. 'Sasirekha Parinayam' is no different and the director's touch is embedded all the way. Bhaskar Samala debuted as a cinematographer with this movie. The initial sequences of the film that shows the marriage activities and then a few scenes filmed near Nagarjun Sagar are beautiful and captivating. Art work by DY Satyanarayana is natural and fits aptly.

Dialogues rendered by Nagaraju who debuted as a writer with 'Gamyam', are fine. One of heroine's dialogue 'Adavallu sadharanamga premincharura, preminchadam modalupedithe jeevithantham marachiporu'. Adi mundu thelusukondra - is notable.

Music composed by Mani Sharma and the background score are not stupendous but not bad either. The song 'Ninne Ninne korukuni kusuminche.' has a good tune. 'Edo' is one more theme score that is soothing to listen to. Lyrics by Seetharama Sastry and Ananth Sriram have meaningful words.

Director's Portrayal

Krishna Vamsi is among the list of most anticipated directors and his movies are always under high speculation. Despite its good narration, the plot has been told and re-told a number of times in cinema. Yet, his fresh presentation makes it more appealing and a good watch. The movie lacks in director's touch at certain places. So, be prepared to see it as a movie and this is not one of Krishna Vamsi's best yet.


'Sasirekha Parinayam' has flavors of an old story in a new movie yet it doesn't fail to entertain. Talks were on about the movie being inspired from the Hindi 'Jab We Met' but excluding the runway and 'Edo' theme, it doesn't have any similarity to it. But, a lagging issue is the movie is far behind Krishna Vamsi's style. In a nutshell, keep aside your thoughts of 'Jab We Met' and don't expect a Krishna Vamsi movie. You will enjoy 'Sasirekha Parinayam' which is a wholesome family entertainer.
