Soukhyam -Story

Seenu(Gopichand) is a happy go lucky guy who falls in love with Shailu(Regina). He keeps wooing her and right by the time Shailu agrees to his proposal, her family members kidnap her and fix her marriage with a corrupt politician's son.

Twist in the tale arises when Seenu's dad asks him to stay away from all this mess and move ahead with his life. Seenu promises his dad to do so but some how manages to rescue Sailu from this tricky situation. How does he manage to do all this is the entire story all about.

Soukhyam- Star Performance
Gopichand is alright within his limitations. There is nothing new or challenging for him. Everything seems like he has been there done that many a time. Regina who is usually a decent actress appears clueless in this film and she cannot be blamed for it. Veterans Brahmanandam, Raghu Babu to the flavor of the season Prudhvi and Saptagiri everyone is there but none of them could make you laugh. All the writers could throw at them were spoofs of recent hit films. Villains appear like caricatures that never seem like a threat to the hero. Nothing can be written about the actors who have played the family of hero.
Soukhyam- Technical Team

Surprisingly, Anup Rubens's music is below average and so was the background score. As said earlier, production values are good and all the songs have been shot well. Dialogues are ok and so was the art direction. Editing was so bad that at least twenty minutes of the film could have been easily chopped off.

Coming to the director Ravi Kumar Chowdary, he looses the plot after the first fifteen minutes. Not once during the film does he manage to evoke any interest and his entire approach towards the film is half hearted. He uses the beaten to death formula and throws scenes at you which are bland and make absolutely no sense. Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan's screenplay is a disaster yet again as the proceedings go without any direction whatsoever.

Soukhyam -Analysis
Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan must have already realized that their formula isn't working anymore. However it is too late by the time they had realized it. Soukhyam is already nearing completion by the time Bruce Lee hit the screens. High time to stop making the same kichidi and look for a new recipe. Telugu film lovers were already irritated by watching same old junk in every other movie.

Soukhyam is a clear example of taking things for granted. Writers believed that audience will watch anything if they add some spoof scenes and so called comedy moments. Yes, there was a time when audiences were more than happy to pay for watching the same stupidity over and over again. Well there is a limit for everything and the formula that was invented by Kona-Gopi was well past the expiry date.

There is not a single moment to cherish about this film. All that you can do is to wait for the film to end or either give up mid way and walk out of the door. This will go down as one of the worst movies of the year. Even the comedy scenes will bore you to death and make you weep for paying to watch this mishap
