a beautiful family entertainer

8/10

SVSC , a multi starrer in the telugu film industry after two decades. a film with huge expectations does not disappoint at the box office. all smiles in the film with such wonderful scenes between the members in the family makes it a joy to watch on the big screen. especially the on screen chemistry of mahesh babu and venkatesh takes you into a complete new world , where you think they are real life brothers but not reel life brothers. it shows that relationships in a family are so important and the characters of mahesh and venkatesh show a true story to the audience. the differences shown between the two families is the very same which is going on in real life in our living society. a film worth watching more than once A TREND SETTER to the telugu film industry

The Movie was simply super and awesome, best family entertainer after long time and after 25 years the multistarer movie came in tollywood and vnky and mahesh both acted very well. this movie will be the blockbustter in tollywood.

finally in my view, Hi frineds, finally watched the SVSC Movie, in one word simply super venky and mahi both of them performed well. 1st half is full of entertainment and second half is excellent screenplay and sentiment was super and so many people are enjoyed the sentimental scenes and claps for those sentimental scenes. i enjoyed a lot. i hope you people also enjoy. all the best to SVSC team.

Just a View.

In this era of droids, satellites and bots, here's a movie which shows Relationships and Human Values, the long forgotten emotions by humans, in a simple yet beautiful way. Revolving around a family living in Relangi, this movie showcases life of joint families in India. The title of the movie justifies the concept. Seethamma(India) Vaakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (One Family).

Peddhodu(Venkatesh) and Chinnodu(Mahesh) are brothers hailing from Relangi. Prakashraj plays their father with unique character who feels life is short, don't bother yourself by nonsense and have the courage to smile at everyone you see and make their life happy as well. Jayasudha plays a concerned mothers character. Rohini Hathangdi excelled as the grandma. Her scenes with Mahesh and Mahesh calling her Bondam brought smile on my face. Anjali, plays Sita, who loses her parents in her childhood and is left at Prakashraj's house by Rao Ramesh, seeta's uncle, who feels everyone should have Planning and vision to excel in life and by excel he means earn a lot of money. Geetha,Rao Rameshs daughter, played by Samantha, falls for Chinnodu(Mahesh).

The story is simple. Every Human Being is good. Visit everyone/every event with a smile and your life will be colorful. Srikanth took a novel thought and excelled in presenting it to cater every genre liking audience. There is no scarcity of comedy and neither would you feel dragged by the emotional scenes. Mahesh's Godavari accent clicked big time in this movie. Mahesh and Venkatesh's scenes are very well canned. Especially the flower pot scene where Venkatesh rings up to Mahesh and asks "Poola Kundi..". Venkatesh-Anjali scenes were very freshly picturized with Venkatesh calling Anjali "eyy". Mahesh-Samantha love angle was cute with Samantha's "nenu hurt" dialogue becoming a rage. All the 3 Railway station scenes between Venkatesh and Mahesh babu were smoothly handled. Music by Mickey J Meyer should be mentioned specially. The Title track would stand out in tollywood history as one of the best and novel tracks of all time. BackGroundMusic by Manisharma was superb and enthralling. Especially BackGroundMusic at the sequence where MaheshBabu chases Ravibabu is superb and also BGM for Badhrachalam episode was handled very well. Climax dialogues between PrakashRaj, Venkatesh and Mahesh are the pillars of the movie. The ease with which these 3 actors conveyed the message to us, the ease with which Srikanth handled the script and the ease with Dill raj handled such high scope project helped Seethamma Vaakitlo Siramalle Chettu to stand out as one of the best movie which portrays Indian Culture in a very sensitive and sensible way before everyone. Kudos to Seethamma Vaakitlo Team.

My Rating: A+ A Must Watch for everyone who believe in human values and have emotional values when it comes to Family and Siblings.

Film was really excellent,before the movie release already director ,producer etc.. has already said that don't have more expectations on the film even though its a multi starrer movie. so i hope it should be seen as a family entertainer.i hope some sister sentiment should be added,any how if the film is watched with a clear expectation as already stated by Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu group in audio launch.venkatesh and mahesh babu given their best in the film.songs was really excellent and still some more comedy should be added. we can see clean and clear feelings and sentiments in this movie. finally whole Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu project is successful.

View from a teenager

6/10

~SVSC~ You expect so much and enter the cinema hall, after watching this is what i felt about the characters:

Mahesh: you are always awesome, but the movie didn't have the thing to make you special

Venky: dull acting, but suited the village style

Anjali: i guess u lost weight running too much in the movie, good debut into large films(expected to be!)

Samatha: as usual, good performance, voice sucks, but better than before.

Prakash raj: brilliant job, but i guess your jaws are paining after a lot of smiling ! no one could replace your role.

Samatha's father: you were so good that i hated u in real, i felt like slapping u!

Overall a pinch of sentiment(so-called sentiment, not really), humor, relationship and whole table spoon of NOTHINGNESS. yes there is NO story in the film, except the message that you can win over the world with a smile on your face. And was there a problem with the projector guy, so MANY repeated scenes.

Not a great movie, that's why people don't make multi-starter movies. Srikanth Adaala, you failed to do what other directors succeed doing a century ago.But again this a breakthrough from those action filled loud movies.

Rating: 6/10, at least for the characters!

Poor attempt in dealing with multi-starrer/family movies

3/10
Author: abhijith-eie from Phoenix, AZ

SVSC with huge hopes and expectations did disappoint many people and on the other hand with the talk of family entertainer, it seems that it entertained many people. According to my personal opinion and the opinion of the people whom I watched it with, it wasn't a super hit or a feel good movie. The film lacked a lot of things and some how still people are watching the film. I hoped it'd be a mix of Venkatesh's "Kalisundam Raa" and Mahesh Babu's "Murari". Frankly this movie didn't meet any of the expectations at all. If Mahesh wasn't there in the movie, half of the people in the theater would have left by the interval. Mahesh's dialogues made people sit for a while in their seats. Claiming brothers sentiment, this movie lacked a proper reason for ego issues between the brothers. Neither the people in the theater nor I understood why the brothers were struggling to get on with their lives. It seemed a bit weird when emotional(called to be emotional) scenes mahesh and venkatesh came up. Every 15 minutes there'd be a meeting between the brothers which doesn't have a reason and doesn't conclude anything. Overall I didn't find any brother sentiment in the movie. Lack of comedy is a big negative to the movie. In my opinion, no brothers in real life would have such emotional episodes in their life. Normally we'd find such scenes between lovers. Some how people are liking it. I do not know the reason why. I believe its simply the fan following bringing people to theaters. Climax is also very weak. It looked like a lengthy short film (like a TV serial watched for 3 hours). The whole concept of multi-starrer films has been wasted by the director. People in our theater were praying when the movie would end so that they can get out the theater asap. People were like "OMG" whenever venky and mahesh sentiment scenes came up.

Positives: Cinematography, Music, Mahesh's Dialgoues

Negatives: Weak story, Weak Screenplay, Lack of comedy, Unnecessary episodes b/w mahesh and venky Weak climax and many other

Bottom line: "Sankranthi" movie was good than this one.
