Storyline

Santhu Staight Foward is a perfect example of a commercial film. It follows a safe storyline -- boy meets girl story, and with a little help from friends and a loving family, the two end up together. All a steady march towards a happy ending. Though it is a tried and tested template, this still makes for a one-time watch because Yash keeps the show going. The title character Santhu is a carefree youngster, who believes in being straight forward and his parents are proud of their son's open nature. Enter Ananya (Radhika Pandit) an architecture student and it is love at first sight for Santhu. But his dreams suffer a crushing blow when he gets to know Ananya is engaged to Deva (Shyaam) a builder and her maternal uncle. The rest of the story is whether Santhu plans to propose to Ananya and how he wins her over.

Its Yash all the way!!
2 November 2016 | by vinaygowda-c2See all my reviews

Santhu Straight forward is a commercial movie with right ingredients put together. It is a reflection of how a Big star can occupy the complete screen space and give a complete entertainer. This is due to fact that Yash provides a complete package with dance, action, comedy and charisma which Sandalwood has missed in quite a few years now. Though the movie has a very basic story which we have seen multiple times, the screenplay is just good. The punch dialogues, comedy sense and Yash, Radhika duos make us to watch this movie. All the songs are composed very well and choreographed level with good locations. V Harikrishna is back with his music. Radhika as always give justice to her role without any doubt. Shaam and other supporting actors have performed well. Ravishankar creates that charm once again with his entry at the end of the movie. Verdict: The movie has all the content to spend 159 minutes without boredom and no need to comment on the shortcomings. 9 out of 10 for its entertainment value.
