Padamati Sandhyaragam
20 December 2004 | by topadmaSee all my reviews

A young and garrulous Sandhya(Vijayasanthi) arrives on the American soil from a small South-Indian town along with her parents.

As fate would have had it, she falls in love with her neighbor Tom (Thomas Jane).

A perpetually nagging father( Gummaluri Satyam) of Sandhya stands hindrance to the wedlock as he believes it would be against principles and norms that the daughter of the family gets married outside the community.

Sandhya and Tom are left with a choice to elope.

A fairly good entertainer crafted by the Maestro Jandhyala.
