Generation gap is an inevitable part between the parents and their kids. Parents misconceive the likes of their wards and assume that their decisions are the best made for their children. With their abounding affection, they ignore the children's feelings which was 'Bommarillu' theme earlier and now 'Konchem Ishtam Konchem Kashtam' is one more arrival similar to the same theme.
Starring Siddarth, Tamanna, Prakash Raj and Ramya Krishna in the lead cast, debut director Kishore Kumar alias Dolly has made the film produced by Nallamalapu Srinivas alias Bujji on Lakshmi Narasimha Productions banner. Based on the consequences faced by children due to the parent's ego which forms the crux, the film was released on 5th February.
Siddhu Varma (Siddharth) is the son of Prakash Varma and Rajya Lakshmi (Ramya Krishna) who grows up in a not so affectionate family environment because of his parents' separation which happened 18 years ago. Yet, he is a lively chap with aspirations in life and behaves carefree. He comes across the beautiful village belle Geetha Subrahmanyam (Tamannna) and falls in love with her. He wins her heart with his joyful approach and she accepts in return. Geetha is a traditional girl who believes firmly in relationships and respects her family.
The young lovers approach Geetha's father Subrahmanyam (Nazar) for their marriage. Keen on family values, Subramanyam puts forth a condition for Siddhu if he wishes to marry his daughter.
How Siddhu's efforts to unite his parents become fruitful in the end forms the rest of the plot.
Performance of Artists
Siddhartha is a good actor who has displayed notable performance in the films like 'Nuvvostante Nenodantana', 'Bommarillu' and 'Aata'. His role again in the name Siddhu has been carried efficiently by his emoting skills. His presentation of dialogues like " evaraina premisthe pareeksha pedatharu meerenti siksha vidhincharu..." "Dveshanni maathram vunchukoni premani dooram chesukunnaru..." during the climax appeals largely.
The popular star of 'Happy Days' Tamanna has played the subtle role as Geetha Subrahmanyam. She does her part well and is an asset for the film. Her gestures and body language in certain sequences are attractive.
No special mention is needed for the talented actor Prakash Raj who carries himself with ease and elan in the role of Prakash Varma. Ramya Krishna doesn't lag behind and does justice to her role as a mother with her able performance. Nazar as Subrahmanyam has dignifiedly presented the role within its scope.
Brahmanandam as Gachibowli Diwakar, Venu Madhav as Bangaru Raju shoulders the responsibility of making the viewers laugh and they did it with grace. Sudha, Surekha Vani, Vijay Samrat, Karuna, Hema have done well within the limits of their role.
Musical score composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy is new for Telugu audience with innovative compositions. Lyrics penned by Sirivennela, Chandra Bose, Ramajogaiah Sastry, Chinni Charan aptly sync along with the songs and are sweet to listen to.
Choreography by Raju Sundaram, Kalyan, Soni Nikson and Shekhar has been done neatly. Dialogues by Abburi Ravi are crisp and touché the emotions near the end. Chinna's BGM is average while Harish Shankar has done a good job as an assistant in writing while screenplay done by Deepak Raj, Vikram Siri is taut and neat.
Srikar Prasad should have made a taut screenplay which he missed that delivers a lag in the movie. . Vijay K Chakravarthy cinematography brings in the perfect visualization on screen which enriches the movie. Nallamalapu Srinivas has made a good family entertainer.
Director Kishore Kumar's work is near to flawless albeit him being a first time director. He deserves applause for his timing sense to bring out scenes and for the storyline with his very first film. The complete movie going experience would have been better if the lag in narration been checked out. On the whole, director has made a mark with his first venture.
The title gets justified which states every family has its own share of sweetness and sourness meaning 'Konchem Ishtam Konchem Kashtam'. Parents' separation due to their egoistic nature affects their children's life which many are not aware of. The concept has been rendered on screen in a melodramatic way filled with love, affection and family bond. Verdict: A feel good family entertainer with few flaws which could be overlooked for the better parts.
