Savitri (Nanditha Raj) is crazy about getting married right from her childhood days. With this being her sole aim, she convinces her family to find a good groom for her. Her family decides to get Savitri married to Rishi (Nara Rohit), although both of them are not aware of this decision. While on her way to Shiridi, Savitri meets Rishi, who instantly falls in love with her even though she is not interested. Due to some circumstances, both of them miss the train. During their journey back to catch the train, Rishi tells his family that he is not interested in marrying the girl they fixed as he is in love with someone else now. How does Rishi makes an disinterested Savitri fall in love with him? and How does he convince Savitri's family for her hand ? The answers to these questions form the rest of the story.
Nara Rohit has done fantastic job and became successful to impress the audiences by his wonderful performance. He is looking very handsome. Actress Nandith Raj is looking very pretty and performed well. Srimukhi and Maadhunandan as eloped couple justified with their role. Posani Krishna Murali as Krishna delivered his wonderful performance. Rama Prabhas in the role of granny has done good job. The comedy of Satyam Rajesh and Shakalaka Shankar are ok and they became fail to give much laugh to the audiences. The performance of Ajay, Ravi Babu, Dhanya Balakrishna, Fish Venkat, Vennela Kishore are up to marks and they tried to deliver their best.
Though the film is made with a small budget, the production values are exceptional. The background music which is scored by Sravan is good and Chitramainadhi and Pilla O Pilla songs are very impressive. RJ Kajal's voice suits Nanditha's character nicely and elevates her role well. Camera work is nothing great to talk about. Dialogues on the other hand, especially during the climax, have been written exceptionally well.
Coming to director Pavan Sadineni, he has already proved that he has ample amount of talent with his debut film. The movie has routine story. The first half of the movie is entertaining but the entertainment level goes down as the movie moves towards the end. The second half of the movie is dragged and unnecessary comedy irritated the audiences. The movie can be better after chopping few dragged scenes.
On the whole, Savitri is a film which is high on family emotions. Although, the film feels dragged at most places and story is ages old, the lead cast and overall theme manages to provide just about ok entertainment and can be given a shot if you have absolutely no options to explore this weekend.
