Siddhartha - Story
Surya(Sagar) belongs to a family who has problems with yet another factionist family. In order to end the deadly feud between the two families, Surya's mom(Sana) sends him to Bangkok to lead a new life. There, Surya changes his name as Siddhartha and falls in love with Sahasra( Ragini). When things seem to be going absolutely fine, his mother suddenly asks him to come back and marry the daughter(Sakshi Chowdary) of his enemy's family. What will Surya alias Siddhartha do now ? What will happen to Sahasra ? Will he marry according to his mother's wish ? That forms the rest of the story.
Siddhartha - Star Performance
Sagar has given an extraordinary performance. He has the looks, acting talent and screen presence and can go a long way if he chooses his films well. Sagar suits his role well during the first half and makes an impact. The chemistry between the lead pair is very good. Heroine Ragini gets a meaty role and impresses to an extent. Happy Days fame, Ranadhir gets a good role and does his best as the supporting cast. Other Actors like Subbaraju, Ajay, Thagubothu Ramesh justified their roles. Also, senior actor Kota Srinivasa Rao appears in a major role after a long time.
Siddhartha - Technical Team
Special mention should go to the producer Dasari Kiran Kumar for his superb production values. All the money he has spent shows on screen. The decent camera work helps to showcase these superb locations nicely. Music is just about okay but the background score is good. Screenplay goes for a toss during the second half. Coming to the director Dayanand, he has done an okay job with the film. The conflict point, his narration, and writing are very good during the first half. But he too falls for the commercial formulae trap and upsets the proceedings during the second half.
Siddhartha - Analysis
On the whole, Siddhartha is a below average fare which has some very interesting moments during the first half. Sagar's performance and good production values are basic assets. But a lackluster second half and dragged out climax makes this film just an okay watch this weekend.
