  • Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu(Translation : The Jasmine vine in Seethamma's Courtyard)- One of the best Telegu movie i have ever seen..(I have watched only few Telegu movies. so please don't mind). "Simple but beautiful". All the characters have done their job almost perfect. Thanks to the whole crew for such a heart touching film. The movie revolves around 2 brothers and their love to each other and to humanity.Family relationships and values are the main focus in Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu. PrakashRaj as usual performed exceptionally well. Anjali as a Goddess taking care of the family with innocence. Samantha as a cute Angel. Thanks to the Director and Producer for taking up this project. My rating for the movie is 8/10.
  • Warning: Spoilers
    It is very unlikely to point out a single dull moment in this crowd- pleasing, tear-jerking healthy family entertainer that presents a story akin to every household. Despite the presence of stars such as Mahesh Babu and Venkatesh, 'Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu' (SVSC) boasts of being a successful multi-starrer throughout by giving equal weightage to both the actors. The film may or may not inspire one and all, but it will definitely send everybody back home with a smile.

    Revolving around familial relationships, 'SVSC' narrates the story of two brothers - Peddodu and Chinnodu, played by Venkatesh and Mahesh Babu respectively, and their relationship with everybody around them, including their own family. Even though both the brothers are jobless, the younger one, played by Mahesh, is emotionally strong and unlike his uptight elder brother, doesn't spend every living moment worrying about how to face the world. But at home, the brothers are blessed with the most loving family one could ever have.

    A father, played by Prakash Raj, who counts every minute with a smile and a doting mother, Jayasudha, who wishes to see her son settled and happily married. Seetha, played by Anjali, aspires to get married to Peddodu, but her feelings are never valued. Chinnodu falls in love with Geetha, played by Samantha, who despite being distantly related, can't hope for a life together as their families have a long history of rivalry. Will they get to live happily ever after? This forms the rest of the story.

    In the first fifteen to twenty minutes, as the camera pans across different characters in the film, one gets a crystal clear understanding of each one of them. It is extremely difficult to bring together two stars to work together in the industry, but Srikanth not only succeeds in making them act together, but makes them back each other in power packed-performances as brothers. One might feel that Mahesh may have had extended screen presence, but it is Venkatesh, who steals the limelight with his unadulterated performance, sans machismo.

    Harping strongly on familial values, there are moments in the film apt to the context of the film. Be it Prakash Raj's ever gleeful face or Geetha's love for Peddodu or Rao Ramesh's self-priding character or even the sensitive relationship between Mahesh and Venkatesh, it is moments like these that hold the film intact.

    Srikanth, with his sincere and simple screenplay, makes everybody look at the mirror image of their own families on the big screen. As one gets deeply engrossed in the film, he or she will realize all that the film shows is what makes a family, and the different people who make it. There are no extraordinary moments to boast greatly of, but there are plenty of simple yet beautiful moments that are heart-tugging.

    Mahesh and Venkatesh, who share funny yet meaningful conversations most of the time, make every minute of their screen presence meaningful. Mahesh's character is funnier, courtesy films such as 'Dookudu' and 'Businessman', and his moments with Samantha are rib-tickling. Good to see Samantha shed her glamorous side and welcome performance-oriented roles, which she only handles with deftness and ease. Anjali is yet another crowd-puller performer in the film, and she will not go unnoticed.

    Two characters that hold the film together is that of Prakash Raj and Rao Ramesh. They complement each other with roles that are poles apart, but highly important in the film. These actors deserve special mention and adulation.

    Mikey J Meyer's compositions are musical lullaby to the ears, while Mani Sharma's background score is comforting. KV Guhan's cinematography may not be outstanding, but makes the ambiance look beautiful.
  • SVSC , a multi starrer in the telugu film industry after two decades. a film with huge expectations does not disappoint at the box office. all smiles in the film with such wonderful scenes between the members in the family makes it a joy to watch on the big screen. especially the on screen chemistry of mahesh babu and venkatesh takes you into a complete new world , where you think they are real life brothers but not reel life brothers. it shows that relationships in a family are so important and the characters of mahesh and venkatesh show a true story to the audience. the differences shown between the two families is the very same which is going on in real life in our living society. a film worth watching more than once A TREND SETTER to the telugu film industry

    ‎Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu: A wonderful feel good family entertainer movie.... After a very very very long time, a full fledged family movie....The movie is all abt the 2 brothers Venkateshmahesh babu (a) Pedhodu Chinnodu with happy situations around the family and both were rocking in all scenes..

    Venkatesh: the character he played in this film is a different one. He is neither sweet husband nor a sacrificing family member. His character has an attitude problem. He likes to live life in his way, he don't knows to act for others. A guy who loves his brother much..

    Mahesh babu: he did a outstanding performance as younger brother, his character was nicely portrayed, who is playful most of the times...

    Other characters: Anjali dominates as the movie title is her name, and she has great respect in the family n she did brilliantly quite well. Samantha, an Angel always... she acted as lover girl who performed perfectly her part.. Prakash raj, always whatever role came his way, the one person can do that is him... outstanding performance..

    Technically: Songs scored by Micky J Meyer are good. The title song is excellently picturized. Background music by Mani Sharma is very good. The dialogues penned by Ganesh Patro and Sreekanth Addala are natural and meaningful. Cinematography by Guhan is a feast to eyes..

    I felt like "The audiences who watch the film Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu would immerse themselves in the film. Chances are that they would feel like they are watching some real life sequences from in and around their house". As i felt the same...

    My rating is 10/10..
  • SVSC is undoubtedly the most awaited movie of the season if not this year. This is the first true multi-starrer movie in Telugu cinema in last three decades. Mahesh Babu who is in sparkling form teamed up with ace performer Venkatesh in this film about Sibling bonding.

    What is it about?

    Peddodu (Venkatesh) and Chinnodu (Mahesh) are brothers who have diverse personalities. Peddodu doesn't settle down in life by doing some job and Chinnodu will be in job search. Peddodu not settling in any job is the biggest pressure on their family. Chinnodu tries to guide him but in vain. At a stage the relation between the brothers gets strained and how everything gets cleared is the final scene.

    Performances:

    Mahesh Babu is currently in a wonderful form especially with his comedy timing. His one liners in East Godavari accent are a treat. He has delivered yet another wonderful performance as chinnodu. He simply carries off the film on his shoulders and provides good entertainment in parts. If not for Mahesh this film would have been a letdown. Such is the impact of Mahesh on this movie.

    Venkatesh has been dominated by Mahesh in most of the scenes as Venkatesh played a serious role which is completely in contrast to that of Mahesh's. However Venky had his moments here and there where he comes up with trademark sentimental performance. Being a multistarrer one would expect Venkatesh to have a better role.

    Prakash Raj is very good in his role. He is very natural and so is Jayasudha. Anjali's character is over the top at times but she is good and lovely in the role. Samantha is alright. Rao Ramesh and Tanikella Bharani are fine.

    On the Technical Front:

    Songs are soothing and melodious. Background score is pleasant. Cinematography is cool. Editing could have been better. So many characters have been chopped off (RaviBabu, Raja Raveendra) without proper justification. Dialogues are good. Production values are commendable.

    Srinkanth Addala is a good director who has great script sense. His first film Kotha Bangaru Lokam has few very good scenes that prove this point. SVSC is not an exception. Srikanth has once again done a fabulous job in conceiving scenes. The best scene is on Prakash Raj in Badrachalam. However, the director ignored many essential elements to highlight the sibling bonding. His prime focus is only on the brotherhood and he didn't bother about other things which is not an intelligent move on the commercial front.

    Analysis:

    This movie starts off at its own pace and things start to move briskly once Mahesh and Venkatesh comes together on screen. There is no separate comedy in this film and that has been handled by Mahesh. First half is completely dedicated to create feel good factor and the director succeeds in doing so.

    Second half is where the real story has to start. But director only focused on brothers and their emotions. They go apart on few occasions and patches up later. This process repeats for two or three times and the movie ends. You will never realize that the film has gone into the climax part until the movie concludes.

    Narration is too flat and that is the biggest drawback. Mahesh and Venkatesh bonding scenes have come out well. Mahesh Babu's phone chat with Samantha is entertaining. Anjali character and Prakash Raj character could have been dealt better for more emotional impact. Mahesh Babu solely shouldered the movie from sinking with his excellent dialogues and performance.

    This film has few emotions that will appeal to family audience and females. People who have great bonding with their brothers too might get connected. We have to wait and see how masses embrace this movie.

    Verdict: Seetamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu - A clean Family film
  • Not often you come across such masterpieces from the Telugu film industry. SVSC is a wonderful emotional tale of two brothers with contrasting personalities and conflicts arising from them. To make such a movie, which throws light on the character's negative shades, and that too with two stars with larger than life images is a truly courageous effort by the director. Though it lacks the entertainment quotient, it more than makes it up with the emotional bonding and the chemistry between the lead actors. Terrific acting, fresh treatment and an underlying message that appeals to every human being, make this movie an absolute classic. If you love Telugu movies, you do not want to miss this.
  • Warning: Spoilers
    Director srikanth addala came up with family drama starring mahesh and venkatesh as brothers. Had he given enough? Lets see.

    The man is mahesh babu making viewers laugh with his funny one liners. The first half of the movie is a joy ride with mahesh babu's funny one liners,scenes between mahesh and samantha and some emotional scenes between the brothers and in the family scenes but the second half of the movie loses pace and the last 45 minutes are dull. The audience keep guessing whether the brothers are gonna settle or not but they get disappointed at the end. It has an average climax.

    Being a multistarrer movie after a long time in Telugu industry and family movie its an one time watch.
  • Okay, so here's the catch: what you usually expect from a Telugu film is your average dose of masala, glamorous actors, a story that shall keep you gripped at the edge of your seats and you can a few more flashy stuff to this list( all it'd do is populate it with sheer uselessness).

    This one's different though, its bold. How you might ask? It's got a flat story some might say but ladies and gentlemen this is reality and it this is as flat and straight honesty will ever get for you.

    Acting: pure class in the form of Mahesh and Venkatesh who carry themselves not just with looks but with a form of decency which can be achieved by men who are well decent to say the least. The acting ensemble consists of the classic players in the Telugu film industry and each reciprocate their usual roles to perfection

    The story is honest, the screenplay is ecstatic, the dialogues make you want to cry and this time I'm not talking crocodile tears. The background score gives you goosebumps.

    Finally spare a thought for the director, this man has taken an ordinary story some would go on to compare it to the old classic "Gundamma Katha" and well designed it taking into account the ideals of modernization to such brilliance that shall not be achievable in the near future.

    Men will be men....but well gentlemen are a class apart. Go watch this movie with any sort of company and you shall exit the theater with a smile on your face. The team of SVSC take a bow!
  • ~SVSC~ You expect so much and enter the cinema hall, after watching this is what i felt about the characters:

    Mahesh: you are always awesome, but the movie didn't have the thing to make you special

    Venky: dull acting, but suited the village style

    Anjali: i guess u lost weight running too much in the movie, good debut into large films(expected to be!)

    Samatha: as usual, good performance, voice sucks, but better than before.

    Prakash raj: brilliant job, but i guess your jaws are paining after a lot of smiling ! no one could replace your role.

    Samatha's father: you were so good that i hated u in real, i felt like slapping u!

    Overall a pinch of sentiment(so-called sentiment, not really), humor, relationship and whole table spoon of NOTHINGNESS. yes there is NO story in the film, except the message that you can win over the world with a smile on your face. And was there a problem with the projector guy, so MANY repeated scenes.

    Not a great movie, that's why people don't make multi-starter movies. Srikanth Adaala, you failed to do what other directors succeed doing a century ago.But again this a breakthrough from those action filled loud movies.

    Rating: 6/10, at least for the characters!

    Movie is poorly executed. No storyline. Movie tries to depict that money does not matter but poorly fails in this endeavour. Whole 2 hours no twist no story and ends abruptly.
  • ‎Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu !!! The movie totally deserves such a decent title.. :) I hate to call it a super hit or average or anything, its a whole new wonderful experience.. Don't expect heroism,action scenes, hilarious comedy, romance or any routine stuff of telugu cinema. It just depicts one good traditional Indian family and their emotions beautifully. Srikanth Addala, Dil Raju take a bow for doing this. Totally a decent n good film with amazing cast, simple music, beautiful taking. Mahesh and Venkatesh have done a fabulous job. Anjali did a promising job. Samantha, a fresh go with loads of cute things. Mahesh proves again he's adaptable, looking so natural with Godavari slang. Bottom line : Best one in recent times to watch with family. PS: You'll be touched if u have a sibling. Watch it soon, before some people spoil it for you saying words like boring, dull etc.

    Tollywood is criticized for illogical and over the top masala films, but now also they are making bad family dramas like svsc. This movie is a about a father played by prakash raj and his sons played by venkatesh and mahesh babu. There is no idea about prakash raj's occupation so you can assume him as a retired man. Whereas both venky and mahesh are jobless. So the whole family is surviving with prakash raj's pension money. In the beginning venky is having a decent job given by his relative but he leaves because he is advised to smile and behave properly with the staff. Usually in movies unemployed guys are shown in a massy way. But mahesh's character is shown in a classy way. Director is not bothered to show what mahesh and venkatesh wants to do in their life. What is their goal and ambition? Also there is no reason why venkatesh is behaving like a jerk despite having a good family. And in the end, venkatesh gets married without getting any job. Nobody gives us a girl to marry if we don't have any job then howcome he? Director wants to give us a message that family values are important than family wealth but does that mean its okay for the sons in the family being unemployed? The biggest drawback of the film is it has no story at all. Film goes on without any purpose. Only good thing about the film is that its a clean family film without any crass jokes, skin show, item songs, violent or over the top action scenes and hero buildup which you see in regular Telugu films. Otherwise svsc is a bad and boring film.
  • For the start.. Ignore all the negative reviews.

    Well it's very unusual to see a telugu movie without comedy, this has really least comedy scenes.. can almost say no comedy at all. But still the movie was really good, all the sweetness bound in it.. esp after watching soo many useless movies like Rachcha, Rebel, Naayak etc

    Too bad i missed watching it in the theater. It was full of life thou..you can't always expect to be a total entertainer with comedy, action, and everything combined. This dint even have extreme emotional scenes as well. But the movie is definitely very satisfying.

    Anyways.. Enjoy the movie.. It's worth you time!

    Some Say Tollywood has gone into monotonous flow of Mass Masala Flicks but here is the latest offering from Srikanth Addala in Dil Raju Franchise which has broke all such factors with flat story line and excellent screenplay and rich display of Andhra culture.

    even though there were certain amount of multi-starers in the past few years but this one is way a part from all those with Mahesh Babu and Venkatesh coming together leaving their cinematic characters and entering into real life characters is some thing to be applauded.

    It has no commercial elements, no separate track of comedy away from story line but it still impresses the audience with a smile on their face.

    a must watch and expecting more of these kind of movies in years to come from tollywood.
  • after a long time,a movie with complete Telugu nativity.more over two actors were placed in perfect rolls,and all this credit goes to Srikanth addala.movie carries human emotions and relations in a soft way.Venkatesh and Mahesh babu justified the story with their performance.on-screen chemistry was so good between this both heroes.Music is also a plus for the movie.Mickey j.mayor scored good tracks without missing trend and BG-M is provided by Mani sharma.Anjali and Samantha had good and lengthy rolls in movie and also shared their part.Director never missed telugu nativity throughout movie and did a great screenplay.Prakash Raj and Jayasudha were fantastic and suited a lot for this heroes.Guhan as D.O.P and art director did worthy job by making the movie so colorful with their work.More over everyone should appreciate Dil Raju for making such a beautiful movie. Completely movie is full length family entertainer with good message.
  • I wish it was less commercialized, it would have made a great film from a good film.

    It's a good film to begin with, it kept me interested and despite the misgivings in terms of bad song placements, I liked it. I is not a a story that has a point, a proper destiny, a simple man becoming hero being someone who does something for himself and even others, it's no one man army, it's a life of a family. Father is the teacher of values, mother is the giver of food and love, sons or daughters are the heirs of values and good tastes, and that grandma is a good entertainment channel herself. Of all these, there is a girl who lives in the same house, and is extrovert and yet nice and she is none other than Sita (Anjali).

    Of all the performances I like the performance of Anjali. That one scene near the end where she says "Nannu Okka Cinemaki Teesukellakapoyinaa parledu" is just a glimpse of the variation this actress is capable of. I wish, we see more of her, she has potential to become a good actress. The next best was Mahesh Babu, he has given his routine looks, similar diction of dialogues, the one liners are now known. Yet, Mahesh's expression and the enunciation, his voice modulation, make him a good actor, he is growing with each film and it's appreciated. In this film itself, Mahesh delivered comic dialogues with such an ease that there is no need for a comedian. Also, a mention of Rao Ramesh who has emulated the diction of the yesteryear's actor "Rao Gopal Rao" and has done a good job. For Venkatesh, most of the scenes are like Bread and Butter for him and has done it aptly, except that he touches his collar too many times. All others have done well too.

    Now, music was a big let down, the placement of songs hampered the flow of the film itself. Cinematography was good, sound design was not so good as dubbing is low at few places. Editing should have been better, just cut out the songs and in that inconsequential chase of 'Goodu Raja', and few more scenes, and that will make this film more interesting.

    I accepted the film as it is and on a whole, it's a good film nevertheless, also happy that two big actors have agreed to come together for such a script. But what I am unhappy with is the producer, who wanted to make business and that too big business in a script that can be more beautifully taken. Director has done a great job in fleshing out the script and convincing the cast for the film. But coming to his direction, he must now learn a lot and take this success forward.

    A 3/5 for a good family entertainer. Watch it out for Mahesh and Anjali's performances and for the emotions that we like to follow, but indeed are not following so much. It's a bit preachy in climax, but it's OK.
  • Warning: Spoilers
    SVSC may not reach people's hopes but a movie lover will definitely like it.After a long time i have seen a movie which includes equal justification for all the characters which added up that additional touch to the movie.we have seen many family based movies and this movie will definitely will be one of the most remembered movies under that category. Venkatesh(Pedodu) and Mahesh Babu(chinodu) have done a fantastic job. People who really like a separate comedy track may not miss that as Mahesh has done a fantastic job in making people laugh.Meanwhile Venkatesh who maintains a serial role also justified his character.Both the heroines have done their characters very well.Mainly Prakash Raj who played as a father character for the two brothers has done a fantastic job.All other artists have given justification to their roles.We might feel the second half lacks speed and added to it slow narration as well,but the first half is very much energetic.Although you may not feel that slow narration after coming out of the theater as we just compare our self in those brother's characters. Final conclusion is "Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu" is a pure family movie which makes you feel really touched and definitely make you think about your relationships. A must go movie and enjoy with your family.
  • Sweet simple family movie.

    Many relatable elements.

    Mahesh Babu's smile is so infectious, you can't help but smile too. 😘

    And for the first time I saw Prakash Raj play a positive character, in fact an angel. 😄
  • SVSC with huge hopes and expectations did disappoint many people and on the other hand with the talk of family entertainer, it seems that it entertained many people. According to my personal opinion and the opinion of the people whom I watched it with, it wasn't a super hit or a feel good movie. The film lacked a lot of things and some how still people are watching the film. I hoped it'd be a mix of Venkatesh's "Kalisundam Raa" and Mahesh Babu's "Murari". Frankly this movie didn't meet any of the expectations at all. If Mahesh wasn't there in the movie, half of the people in the theater would have left by the interval. Mahesh's dialogues made people sit for a while in their seats. Claiming brothers sentiment, this movie lacked a proper reason for ego issues between the brothers. Neither the people in the theater nor I understood why the brothers were struggling to get on with their lives. It seemed a bit weird when emotional(called to be emotional) scenes mahesh and venkatesh came up. Every 15 minutes there'd be a meeting between the brothers which doesn't have a reason and doesn't conclude anything. Overall I didn't find any brother sentiment in the movie. Lack of comedy is a big negative to the movie. In my opinion, no brothers in real life would have such emotional episodes in their life. Normally we'd find such scenes between lovers. Some how people are liking it. I do not know the reason why. I believe its simply the fan following bringing people to theaters. Climax is also very weak. It looked like a lengthy short film (like a TV serial watched for 3 hours). The whole concept of multi-starrer films has been wasted by the director. People in our theater were praying when the movie would end so that they can get out the theater asap. People were like "OMG" whenever venky and mahesh sentiment scenes came up.

    Positives: Cinematography, Music, Mahesh's Dialgoues

    Negatives: Weak story, Weak Screenplay, Lack of comedy, Unnecessary episodes b/w mahesh and venky Weak climax and many other

    Bottom line: "Sankranthi" movie was good than this one.
  • This movie is too good.i don't really feel compelled to write reviews. but, i made it a point too write a review. Towards the end of the movie, i started thinking, why don't we have more movies like this. Perfect Family entertainer. too good.

    There's something about this movie that pulls you in and don't let you get away. to be honest, i'm not a big fan of family movies, even i loved this movie. This movie is released in 2013 in Telugu, i'm surprised that no one made a remake of this movie in Tamil. You cannot find movies like this in Hindi.

    The complex love that exists between the brothers is adorable, which is rare these days. People chose money over family, which i never understood. this movie is an eye opener.

    Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu is a beautifully woven tale of human emotions. The film is a must watch, just to see Venkatesh and Mahesh Babu bond so well on the big screen if not for anything else. Good performances from the lead cast, clean family drama and some nice emotional moments are big bonuses. Don't go in expecting traditional heroism from Venkatesh and Mahesh Babu. On the whole, SVSC is a entertainer that you need to watch with your family.
  • Director and Writer: The director produces a muddled product. His aim appears to be to portray a relationship between brothers. That, he succeeded, The scenes between Mahesh and Venkatesh,were presented well - these are new to Telugu audiences though such a relationship between brothers is presented multiple times in Hollywood. But the story built around them was weak. The dialogues were average, nothing remarkable or catchy there.

    Actors: Seasoned actors like Jayasudha, Venkatesh, Mahesh, Kota, Prakash Raj, Tanikella, etc. make it watchable. Venkatesh and Mahesh meshed well. One actor that stood out was Rao Ramesh, dominated the entire movie.
  • Warning: Spoilers
    There's nothing special - a familiar story that stresses on importance of family and relationships like Rajshri movies. But without a shade of those movies and using a unique track, SVSC stands apart.

    Seetha, who loses her parents at an young age, is brought up by her maternal uncle. The entire family love and cosset her. She also has two paternal uncles who are rich and arrogant. They dislike their poorer relations. How Seetha's wedding brings both the families together is the crux of the story. This has been narrated in a manner that leave your eyes swimming in tears.

    The biggest strength of the movie is the character sketch. Even actors who appear in a single scene have been given certain character traits. Prakash raj who goes for a walk in the morning, smiles and greets every persons he meets. He helps school kids on cycle along a slope. Venkatesh doesn't want to bow down at the level crossing, he waits for it to lift and give way. In a similar circumstance, Mahesh babu just leaps across the hurdle. With a single shot, the director describes each person's nature.

    Two star actors of Telugu industry, Super actor Venkatesh and Superstar Mahesh Babu have lived like brothers in this movie. The chemistry between the two brothers is inseparable like a cellphone and simcard (?!!) Despite addressing each other as "rey" and "cheppara" like equals, the respect between the brothers is always obvious. Their body language and expressions are perfect.

    In particular, close to interval, when Mahesh Babu tells his brother to change his attitude and Venkatesh responds with " I know what to do.. why don't you go and play your dramas with the rich guys ". Just as Mahesh kicks the flowerpot - you get the full flow of each persons thoughts and perceptions. And the scene in Bhadrachalam where both brothers sit on the steps and express their love is something very beautiful.

    Anjali plays the title and pivotal role of Sita. Though she sounds childish in few scenes, she shows all signs of filling the place of Soundarya. Samantha is sweet as usual. Jeyasudha has given life to her character . Rohini Hattangadi's experience has added strength to the grandmother's character. Prakash Raj's acting fill our hearts and minds and he reminds us of S.V.Ranga Rao . K.V.Guhan's cinematography , Marthand Venkatesh's editing, Mani sharma's rerecording and Mickey J.Meyer's songs add strength to the movie.

    But the person who stands above everyone else, is the director Srikkant Addala. The Haiku shots and poetic scenes stun us. The dialogs in Godavari slang give life to the story. The stunning one-liners captivate us. The climax where Prakash Raj tells his sons with a smile in his eyes , " All men are good. If you are born as a man itself, you are good " - is just a sample .

    We think times have changed and civilization has grown and chase after some undefined goal in life. We ignore our relatives and family. SVSC hits a nail on your head and tells you what you have been missing.

    It is true. For the bond of family to flourish, its not money but love that is essential. That is what is told in this movie and expressed in each frame and scene.

    SVSC may not be regular commercial multi-starrer movie but it consist the right amount of family touch with not including mushiness in it coz it generally not like that,it consist of village middle class family relations and lifestyle of them living apart in different cities with a bit of city touch...it is different metro city lifestyle every one are soo used to and it reminds of many like me to miss what once we have mixing with now what we are Venkatesh and Mahesh played roles of Peddodu and Chinnodu(they never once said names,may they want to connect to masses)really well...both are jobless young men trying to settle down in their lives in their own styles,while peddodu is feared in home,chinnodu is what one calls naughty one...while peddodu is stubborn,chinnodu is peace maker,while peddodu is shown as inexpressive and goes after his mother as straight forward,chinnodu is expressive or try to express to be happy who want to be like his father who is actually happy than just try to be happy,they share certain qualities to balance the home in peace,they both are complex characters with many shades shown in small scenes i never seen in a movie before coz of funda"hero remains hero no matter what",its not a challenge only when you play some mentally related problem suffering character,it is also a challenge to play a real common emotions when its obvious it is not common for a mega heroes like Venkatesh and Mahesh...Kudos to them Seeta character played by Anjali would have a overly rated one if it is played by any one other than Anjali,its just becoz of her the character has right amount of natural feel...generally the character is often happens to be the sister in the family but well as she is one of them not much difference there.. Geeta character played Samantha is with a girl in comfortable lifestyle which makes her fanciful young girl who don't want to know any thing beyond her dream man with her cell phone and talking to him,also she is shown as a slightly back ward(not totally)girl than the fast hyderabadi girls who propose to the guys in a shopping mall.... There are decided marriages inside the family,clashes of families bound by marriage,marriage happens by reference,couples meeting in a marriage...many of the common occurrences one would notice or used to notice.... the pace is surely slow giving TV show feel...especially venkatesh and mahesh scenes..but one can hardly blame it coz of their character being sketched the way they are...but i can say it is different to see a movie which gives some thing to think and feel nostalgic and for many who don't have any related memories to feel nostalgic then may be they would know what life other laptop and mobile... i will give it a 4 and 1/2 out of 5
