Satyabhama - Worth watch for family audiences
Director Srihari Nanu chose a delicate love subject with amnesia (short time memory loss) in its backdrop for his debut film. The subject is good enough, but being a debutant he struggled a lot to narrate the story as it has nothing much to explain for a two-hour period. In fact, the subject demands perfect screenplay, which is not a cakewalk for any novice director to mould on the celluloid.
Krishna Kumar @ Krishna (Sivaji) is basically a sand sculptor. Once he goes to Goa to take part in a tourist carnival. Krishna meets Satyabhama (Bhoomika) and loses his heart. When Krishna tries to meet the same girl the next day, she feigns ignorance.
Krishna learns from the manager of the restaurant (Allari Suhasini) that Satyabhama was a brilliant girl till she met with an accident where she suffered amnesia. She used to forget everything once she goes to sleep. Despite knowing all this, Krishna continues to impress her everyday and decides to marry her. Under typical circumstances Satyabhamas parents explain what happened on the accident day.
Krishna prepares a CD and explains what all happened later and about the present day and also about their love. After watching the CD repeatedly everyday, she recollects the past and present. In order to keep her updated, she starts writing diary and that helped her a lot.
When Krishnas parents were about to accept the alliance, they come to know about her illness and disagree with Krishna. Learning that Krishna had kept his future plans in abeyance for her sake, she decides to sacrifice her love for him. But, Krishna comes to know that Satyabhama is none other than one of his childhood friends. This helps to strengthen the love bond between Satyabhama and Krishna and the film ends on a happy note with their marriage.
It is Bhoomika all the way who stole the show with her impressive performance. She did justice to her character by playing the title role. Her histrionics as a chivalrous girl, her expressions in a pensive mood and love scenes were simply superb.
Sivaji also did a good job as a hero. All the lead artistes like Chandramohan, Melkote, Brahmanandam, Allari Suhasini and others did well.
Comedy by Chitram Sreenu and Babloo is okay.
Music by Chakri is impressive and the songs were also choreographed well.
Joshi was able capture the beauty of Goa and other foreign locations in his camera.
Super Star Krishna made a guest appearance as a psychiatrist, who explains the disease to the hero.
Production values of Lucky media are impressive.
However, in the absence of a specific story and the film mostly depended on the screen, some scenes were seen prolonged. On a whole the film is worth watching for family audiences.
