Mega heroine Niharika Konidela and 'Ee Maya Peremito' fame Rahul Vijay starrer ‘Suryakantham’ which hit the screens on Friday has delivered an interesting romantic-comedy film with a distinctive love triangle. Pranith Bramandapally who previously helmed Niharika's web series 'Nanna Koochi' and 'Muddapappu Avakai' helmed this project. Bankrolled by USA distributors Nirvana Cinemas, the movie is receiving decent reviews form the critics.
Suryakantham Story and Analysis:
The movie plot revolves around Abhi (Rahul Vijay) who is prepared to marry Pooja (Perlene Bhesania), a girl whom his parents arranged and then enters Suryakantham, Abhi’s ex-girlfriend which brings in a lot of confusion into his life. Whom would Abhi marry? Forms the story of the film.
Niharika played the title character shown as a woman who switches her mind frequently bringing troubles to the near ones. She is shown as a commitment phobic and one who runs away from the situation instead of facing it. And Rahul Vijay portrays the character of a man who struggles to find some way to resolve the situation peacefully. This made the film an interesting one with Niharika’s performance standing out.
Though the movie carried a kind of melodrama as the film progresses, director Pranith managed to maintain the flow. The first half of the film concentrated on introducing the character and the sweet love track between Abhi and Pooja and then the movie emerges out to be an entertainer with the entry of title character Suryakantham. The interval bang also promises for more to come and despite the convenient plot points director Pranith employs. The second half turned out to be a disappointment and as the by the time the climax rolls around, you really seem to not care where this is going and who Abhi ends up with.
Niharika might be the only reason that will draw the audience to the theatres. Few critics opined that she emerged out into a better performer.
On the whole, Suryakantham is a film that has a potential story and actors but has somehow missed the recipe to live it up. It would have been a better one as a short film.
