Storyline

The simple yet, inspiring tale of Srimanthudu is about the scion of a wealthy business family, who is disinterested in merely making money. His thoughts and later circumstances move him to adopt a nondescript village and develop it against various odds. A wealthy entrepreneur (Jagapathi Babu) is a worried lot owing to his son's (Mahesh Babu) indifferent and aloof attitude. He wishes his son to acquire and continue the monumental business empire that he built over his lifetime. But, the latter does not agree to it, stating that he wishes to acquire respect first. His thoughts lie elsewhere. He meets a girl (Shruthi Haasan) and they soon fall in love owing to the similarity in their thoughts. However, when she gets to know his identity, she simply ignores him. When confronted, she chides him that he is too rich and does not even know the place of his birth. She is later revealed to be the daughter of a benevolent village head (Dr Rajendra Prasad). Incidentally that is the same village. ... Written by Mass_Sonu

Duty and Good conduct are dynamic no hard and fast rule
28 August 2015 | by gowrigoliSee all my reviews

I am happy to see such a movie. I always tell friends and family, there are choices even in doing our duty. Greatest example of all time is Ramayana. When time comes to honor the promise of King Dasharadha, What Rama did is not exactly followed by all brothers and their spouses. Laxmana followed Rama, But his wife did not follow Sita. Same way Bharata and Shatrughna did not do what Laxmana did. However all of them are right based on their own way of what is right.

I am very happy to see such scenes in this movie. Villager brother wanted to leave the village Hero stops and gives a reasoning as to why he should not leave the 'Family'. However when it comes to hero, he leaves the family. He explains his reasons why he wants to leave the family. For those who try to compare they feel hero did wrong. We need a maturity understand why both actions are right.
