SR Kalyanamandapam review: Same old tale with a dull narration

- Advertisement -

Movie: SR Kalyanamandapam
Rating: 2.5/5
Cast: Kiran Abbavaram, Priyanka Jawalkar, Sai Kumar
Director: Sridhar Gade
Produced By: Pramod, Raju 
Release Date: 6th August 2021

Coming after the success of his debut film Raja Varu Rani Garu, Kiran Abbavaram has tried an image makeover in SR Kalyanamandapam by going for a massy role. The film revolves around a father and son’s strained relationship and what develops out of it as the movie progresses. Kalyan (Kiran) also falls in love with a girl Sindhu (Priyanka) and how his life shapes after that forms the crux of the story

Story: The story is set in Rayachoti (Kadapa) where Dharma (Sai Kumar) owns a once successful Kalyanamandapam. Due to some bad decisions, the kalyanamandapam is past its prime. How these bad decisions impact his relationship with his wife (Tulasi) and son (Kiran) and how Kiran pulls the family back to glory by going through obstacles is what SR Kalyanamandapam encapsulates.

Performance: Kiran Abbavaram has aimed quite high with his second movie itself. While he totally fits the happy-go-lucky college boy character, the action sequences featuring him look unconvincing. Priyanka Jawalkar is wasted in her role as Sindhu and there is nothing much for her barring few songs. Sai Kumar and Tanikella Bharani essay the same old roles which now they can even play in sleep. Their presence uplifts the movie well.

Analysis: SR Kalyanamandapam is a run of a mill family drama where a problem (Kalyanamandapam running out of business) causes conflict between the characters and all is well when the problem is resolved by the hero. Sridhar Gade has taken a routine premise and ha presented it in a bland and old fashioned way. The hero’s characterization doesn’t look convincing and could have been written in a better manner. The college romance also falters and it’s up to the supporting cast and some comedy scenes in the first half to save the viewers from zoning off.

First half comedy

Climax sentiment

Minus Points:

Slow narration


Fights look unconvincing on Kiran

Unknown faces in the support cast

Verdict: SR Kalyanamandapam is a routine run-off-the-mill story and delivers exactly what was shown in the trailers and teasers. The screenplay and dialogues written by Kiran Abbavaram himself look half-baked and unconvincing at times. One of the biggest drawbacks of the film is the elevation and fight scenes aimed at Kiran which doesn’t look convincing at all. He still has time to go for the mass image and it would be ideal if he goes for content-driven films for a while. Priyanka Jawalkar and Kiran’s love story is also unconvincing and doesn’t pack the punch. SR Kalyanamandapam could have been a better experience if it was trimmed further and more focus was laid on the father-son dynamics.
