There is nothing like or above Love in the creation of god says a poet. It is an integral part of our life. It is defined in various ways by numerous people. For some wealth is a constraint for love, others it may be poverty or physical beauty. A pure heart is what needed for true love, other things are all trivial - says 'Vinayakudu'.

Prem Movies banner, which earlier presented the feel good film 'Aa Naluguru', has made this movie in the direction of Sai Kiran Adavi, an associate of Shekhar Kammula, and is produced by Saritha Patra. 'Vinayakudu' which is based on sensitive emotions is releasing on 22nd. Here we present a review.


Karthik (Krishnudu) lives in Rajolu. He meets Madhavi (Vahida), a resident of Hyderabad, through an internet chat room. They become friends with out meeting each other in person. Karthik comes to Hyderabad to meet Madhavi. He stays at his sister Aparna's home (Satya Krishnan) who lives with her family in a colony in Hyderabad. One fine day, he goes to meet Madhavi. But in a twist of fate, the crush didn't last long. Madhavi gets shocked by seeing his appearance and makes her move pretending that she is not Madhavhi but a friend of hers.

Later, by his friend Altaf's help (Surya Teja) Karthik gets a job in the creative department of Reliance Mobile Company. There he comes across Kalpana (Sonia) with whom he falls at love in first sight itself. She is a girl with specific ideas on life. She starts liking Karthik, but never reveals her love to him. Did Karthik who loved Kalpana at first sight, expressed his love to her? What were the consequences? How it all ended? Watch this big time entertainer on the big screen.

Artists' performance

Sonia who was appreciated for her role as Shravs in 'Happy Days' exhibited good performance as a solo heroine in this film. She could be applauded for presenting sensitive emotions very well in some sequences.

Krishnudu who was popular with 'Happy Days' has bought the character Karthik to life. As the subject is suitable to his physique, never he seems to be acting in the role. In every scene, he exhibited apt expressions and justifies the role of 'Vinayakudu' cent-per-cent. He has literally lived out the character.

Action of Poonam Kaur as Sandy, Surya Teja as Altaf is good. To be specific, Surya Teja has exhibited much ease in performing his character. Satya Krishnan as Karthik's sister does good. Similarly, Ankith, Adarsh and Murali Krishna have emoted within the limits of their characters. After a long gap, actress Tulasi does a role in this film. Presenter Premkumar Patra, director Sai Kiran Adivi and cameraman PG Vinda appears on screen in short sequences.

Work of the Crew

Although, this is his first film, Sam Prasan has composed good music with notable songs. An experiment done in re-recording for some scenes is quite appealing. A little more effort in re-recording would have been appreciated.

PG Vinda, who did the cinematography for 'Grahanam', 'Nandana Vanam 120km' including the recent release 'Ashta Chamma', did his part perfectly and rendered good photography to the scenes in this movie. He used close-ups in most of the scenes which adds beauty to the demeanors.

Editing by Marthand K Venkatesh need not be praised for he is the best of all. He has done his job to the point of perfection with his scissors. The rest of the members of the technical divisions have delivered good team work.

Directors Portrayal

Sai Kiran Adivi an associate of Shekhar Kammula, made this feel good entertainer as his first venture in direction, and exhibited his nifty taste. In presenting the story and screenplay, he seldom fails in narration and doesn't miss the tempo anywhere. The punch dialogues that are satirical written by Sai have been timed correctly to the mark. Shekhar Kammula's factory has presented another new talented director to the industry in the form of Sai Kiran Adivi.


In this feel good entertainer, the incorporation of Ankitha's character which is more villainy does not appeal the crowd. Quite a nice feel good movie yet its target upon the niche audience is a strong disappointment. The characters lag at certain places to associate themselves with audiences of different strata. If made in a more general tone, the movie might have reached the masses in entirety.


For Pure love, physical beauty is not important, only the purity in love is needed, with this beautiful message as the theme the film 'Vinayakudu' has made. What could have been a feel good entertainer for the entire crowd lags behind for it has been made pointedly for the corporate audiences. It would have been even better if it was made for everyone. But still on a whole, the debutant director Sai Kiran has hit the bull's eye almost with his very first venture.

A big fat love story is quite a big time entertainer!
