Synopsis: More than 100 years of Indian cinema, and we are still to teach our filmmakers that there's a huge difference between stalking a woman and wooing her with consent.

Movie Review: "Boy sees girl. Falls in love. Decides to get married. There's opposition from his father who thinks she isn't the right choice for him. Guy decides to prove daddy wrong. And he does." These few lines narrate the story of several films Tollywood has produced over the years. The most memorable one would be Bommarillu and the latest film with a similar story outline would be Srirastu Subhamastu.

On top of that, it's more than 100 years of Indian cinema, and we are still to teach our filmmakers that there's a huge difference between stalking a woman and wooing her with consent. And that, readers, is the biggest turn off in this film which features yet another episode where the hero is trying to win over the woman's love by harassing her, literally (an elaborate episode where he convinces her to let him, a stranger, stay in her house). And we are supposed to look at it as a great act just because the guy justifies everything he is doing by saying a dialogue which is similar to what the heroine's dad says. Wow. What an emotion. Dear men, please understand this. When a woman is begging you not to pursue her, she means it. Aadavari matalaku arthalu veru... but not always, and surely not in this case.

The film, thankfully, begins in Kashmir which is the only respite for the audience as not much is really happening for a long time. When things actually start picking up pace, you'd have become tired of waiting. The story has some good moments, but not enough to sustain our interest for long.

Director Parasuram brings together some of the best talent we have: Prakash Raj, Rao Ramesh and Tanikella Bharani all in their element, Sumalatha in a rare appearance which impresses. And what does he do with them? Gives them what seem like meaty roles but end up having no depth in terms of the characterizations at all. If not for them, there's not much this film has to offer.

There's a scene towards the end which brings out an interesting side of Sirish. He emotes wonderfully making you want a shed a tear or two. Lavanya supports him well throughout the film with her act. But both of them would be benefited by better etched roles.

Music by Thaman is something we've definitely heard before. Ali is successful in providing a few laughs. Srirastu Subhamastu might be good in parts but as a package it fails to create an impact.
