Movie Review: Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh Babu are the biggest stars in the industry and everyone wants to work with them is a given. But a lot of Telugu filmmakers seem to be fulfilling that dream of working with them by using them in their films instead - no kidding! Almost every film made in recent times definitely has a reference to wither one of them, or both of them. There's either a dialogue they said or a spoof from their films as seen in Gopichand's latest debacle, Soukhyam, which has a spoof on Srimanthudu and a reference to Pawan Kalyan.

To cut a long story short, Soukhaym, is a film which is directionless at its best and illogical at its worst. Nearly 15 minutes into the film, you've seen what the hero's character is like (he's the good guy of course), you've witnessed an introduction song, an action sequence has taken place, a comedy scene hasn't managed a lot of laughs and a villain has pledged vengeance.

It's okay to have a commercial formulaic film because when it is treated right and given a fresh spin, even with all the "been there, seen that" situations, the film will still seem a treat. But Soukhyam has neither has novelty nor does it innovate in anyway.

Director Ravi Kumar takes us into the world of Seenu (Gopichand) and Sailaja (Regina Cassandra) who fall in love during a train journey. It's ridiculous how they have actually met just two or three times and haven't even had a proper conversation about anything other than love. And well, they are set to face the world and settle down. Yes, that's how the world of movies is no doubt. But when a film like this comes with cut and dried monotony, nothing can possibly seem nice.

You have an over hyped — you should watch it to know it (but please don't) — entry of the villain PR (Devan), then there's a constant discussion of destiny which is lost as the story moves forward and a deadly villain becomes meek just with one slap from the hero. All these are just a peek into how amateurish the film is.

After Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham, this serving is a big disappointment from the director. All possible cliches are thrown in and the final nail in the coffin is the entry of Brahmanandam towards the end - another star reference here with NTR's Temper act of Daya. If the film was bad till this point, it just nose dives to pathetic from here.

Anup Rubens' music adds no value whatsoever to this fare which has commendable performances by the cast - especially Shaukar Janaki. But what good are performances when the story is half baked and the ingredients are no good?

Interestingly, as we watched the film in the cinema hall, people were continuously roaring with laughter towards the end and we can guarantee you it wasn't because the movie was funny. There's a weirdly silly dialogue in this film - Cat laga kitiki nunchi ochaventi? Manly ga main door nunchi ravachu kada? Ah! Need we say more?
