Coming with a novel concept of collective farming, Sharwanand’s ‘Sreekaram’ has triggered curiosity among the audience. Besides, the trailer and songs, the grand pre-release events graced by Megastar Chiranjeevi and Minister KT Rama Rao spiked the interest in the film. And also, moviegoers always expect something special from Sharwa through his films. And all this has eventually made the cine lovers to look forward to Sreekaram.
Karthik (Sharwananad) who hails from a village near Tirupathi works as a project lead in an IT company at Hyderabad. He starts sending the money to clear the debts made by his father (Rao Ramesh). Observing the plight of the farmers who end up as labourers in cities, he decides to show a way by taking up farming himself. So, he even rejects the offer to lead the branch in America to do agriculture. This won’t go well with his father who knows the hardships involved in farming. How Karthik showed the way for profitable farming is the rest of the story.
The movie is made on a lavish scale and it is visible in every frame. Young director Kishore B came up with a wonderful subject and he successfully showcased the emotions through his characters. Watching the beautiful rural surroundings in Yuvraj’s cinematography is blissful to the eyes. Mickey J Meyer’s music and Burra Sai Madhav’s dialogues need special mention.
Sharwanand excelled in the role as a software professional as well as a farmer. Especially, his composed performance in emotional scenes is commendable. Rao Ramesh as Sharwa’s father nailed his character to the core. Priyanka Arul Mohan is ok as a girl who falls for Sharwa. Naresh as an uncle and Sai Kumar as a greedy antagonist played their part.
