Siddhartha won the Telugu audiences' hearts through Bommarillu. Director Dolly has penned a fantastic love story with a family backdrop. The film Konchem Ishtamga, Konchem Kashtamga with Prakashraj, Tamanna, Ramya Krishna and Siddhartha highlights the family values, besides a crazy love story.
Siddhu (Siddarth) is the son of the industrialist Prakash Varma (Prakashraj) and college lecturer Rajyalaxmi (Ramyakrishna). Though Siddhu's parents had a love marriage, they got separates during Siddhu's childhood. After completing his MBA Siddhu roams around irresponsibly enjoying life. Gita (Tamanna), the only daughter of a village landlord Subrahmanyam (Naazar) comes to the city for college education. After they get to know one another they become friends and then the relation matures into love. Siddhu abandons his flirtatious behaviour as well.
Once Gita goes to her native place with her father and Siddhu upon realizing her importance in his life goes to her village and proposes to her directly. Gita takes him to her father, who opposes the relation due to Siddhu's estranged parents. He wants his daughter to live with a complete family. Siddhu decides to unite his parents and then seek her hand in marriage. All his attempts to unite them prove to be futile as they are not willing to shed their ego. Finally he accepts his defeat before Subrahmanyam and decides to sacrifice his love. However upon reaching home he realizes that his parents have realized their mistakes and have got united. Soon the young couple Siddhu and Gita are also united in love.
PLUS :The performance of all the artistes is the highlight of the film. The director has been able to extract good performance from all the artistes. Once again the Prakashraj - Siddhartha combination has proved to be a big hit. Tamanna has performed well as well. Comedy by Brahmanandam and Venumadhav gives good relief to the audiences. Comedy by Brahmanandam in the role of Gachibowli Diwakar, a die-hard cricket fan, would definitely earn him an award again. The director needs to be complimented for penning a gripping story and for the nice movement of the subject. The introduction of Bollywood music directors trio has helped in extracting novel tunes and all the songs have been tuned well. Camera work, editing and the selection of artistes and technicians are the highlights.
MINUS :Though some scenes after the interval appear to be stretched, none of the scenes appear boring to the audiences. There are few minus points in the film. Venumadhav's comedy appears a little routine. But for the few scenes where the hero tries to unite his parents, which appear cinematic, there are very few minus points in the film. Ramya Krishna's role bears similarities to that of Jayasudha's role in Amma Nanna O Tamila Ammayi.
REMARKS :The episodes involving Prakashraj and Siddhartha are worth watching. The human relationships and family bonds were portrayed with utmost precision. The first half of the film is youthful while the director concentrates on family sentiments in the second half and would attract family audiences. The scenes before the climax would touch the hearts of the audiences.
