Satish Vegesna who gave a touching block buster ‘Sathamanam Bhavati’ has come again with yet another out and out family entertainer. ‘Srinivasa Kalyanam’ is a movie which reiterates the values in an institution called marriage and the wedding ceremony. It introduces the significance of traditional marriages to the youth of this generation and while showing the family values undercurrent. The director seems to have succeeded in his vision as well. Nithiin and Raashi made a lovely pair and rendered wonderful acting skills. The magnanimous star cast which included prominent artists in the not so prominent roles makes this movie look rich. The movie is all about, how a young pair from contrasting family back grounds come across each other, falls in love and finally gets married with the consent of their elders.
