After hitting the bull"s eye with Bheemili Kabaddi Jattu, director Tatineni Satya caught the attention of Super Star Krishna family and he was chosen to do a film introducing Sudhir Babu, the brother-in-law of Mahesh Babu. He prepared a good love story, which has a hero"s character with mass touch while the heroine has a class girl. Read on for SMS review.
Siva (Sudhir) is a carefree boy and takes the life as it comes. He works in a courier company as a delivery boy. Once he comes across Shruti (Regina) during a train journey and falls flat to her and gives his heart in the first sight. Siva tells Sruthi that he is an Army Officer. However, Shruthi, who is working as a Radio Jockey has so many reservations about her life and marriage and she too fakes that she is an airhostess. Finally she comes into the groove of Siva a little late. As both accept the love of each other, Shruti learns that Siva is not the boy he she really wanted as he acts in an indecent manner. As the war between love and hate starts, the story takes several twists and the director invokes several elements like jealousy, possessiveness, anger and so on. As the climax approaches the story takes a fresh twist. What happened to their love? Did Shruti finally accept Siva"s love? How, Siva wins back Sruthi"s love? Answers to all these questions form the part of the climax.
Though a novice, Sudhir has done a nice job in the film. He excelled in dances and fights. However, he has to look after his diction especially in emotional scenes. The young actor has lots of energy. Regina also has a very bright future and she looks pretty good. Especially, in traditional attires, she looks wonderful. Performance wise too she did a decent job. Chanti evokes good laughs as hero"s friend. Though Vennela Kishore tried his best to put all his energy, the director has failed to use his talent as he scripted his character very poorly. Other artistes are okay.
Cinematography by Chittibabu and editing by Suriya are adequate. Music by Selva Ganesh is good especially his background music is quite decent and elevated some scenes. Though the songs are good to listen, their placement were not right as they disturbed the mood of audiences and stopped the flow of the narration. Production values are rich and Tatineni Satya has a decent job. The movie, before the interval, goes with a good speed. Had the screenplay was a little bit tight in the second half, it would have been a very good watch. Nonetheless, SMS could be watched without any hassles.
A good beginning for Sudhir with SMS. His ease in dance sequences and action scenes would attract the audiences and the film industry people.
