Naga Shaurya and Malavika Nair helped the film's plot a lot with their uninhibited traits and effortless performances, while Rashi was a surprise in the film. Pragathi, Urvashi and everybody were aptly cast.
The movie was majorly entertainment driven, which makes it a happy watch. For people, who loves to watch rom-coms, with a pinch of emotional content hear and there, Kalyana Vaibhogame is for you.
Though the film wasn't brilliantly written, director seems to be particular about the sensibilities of her script and thus delivered what is usually expected from her.
Music by Kalyani Koduri played an important part of the film like it should, for any rom-com or a family entertainer. Title song was shot very well.
A few traces of diretcor's debut film, Ala Modalaindi were visible. Especially in the way hero and heroine roles were handled.
On the whole, Kalyana Vaibhogame is a simple movie, which talks its point in an entertaining manner. It is conceived in its own space, without overdoing any emotion.
Kalyana Vaibhogame has been heavily inspired by many Telugu movies that discussed marriage as its central point. Especially, you would reminisce Krishna Vamsi's Mogudu and Jagapathi Babu, Priyamani starred Pellaina Kothalo.
Though Kalyana Vaibhogame was dealt differently from them, it does remind you of some of the episodes from the old Telugu films. Perhaps, Nandini Reddy has a great influence of her guru, Krishna Vamsi on her and one can see a typically Vamsi's kind of set up.
Nevertheless, the film was smooth and simple without much dramatization, which makes it a good watch. Moreover the casting of the film is interestingly done. Malavika Nair's own dubbing adds a fresh flavor to her character. Sweet nuances between the couple and the initial cat-fight was well handled. A little slow screenplay plays a spoilt sport since it drags at the end.
We can say Nandini Reddy moderately passes off the litmus test as she is succesful enough in producing a meaningful film with good commercial viability. Give it a watch folks.
