Having good intentions is one thing. Putting them into proper use and perspective is another.
Director Neelakanta falters on the second in his Sada Mee Sevalo after having chosen a responsible theme to handle. A slow paced unfolding of events and a lack of gripping drama spoils the case for Sada Mee Sevalo.
Tilak (Venu), a mind games expert, has a firm Sada Mee Sevalo, to help the needy. He and his lawyer friend (Sunil) and a former cop (Mallikarjuna Rao) handle cases on behalf of the needy public.
Venu, meanwhile, also falls in love with Suryakantham (Shriya) at first sight. So he goes after her and wins her hands. But post marriage, Surykantham has difficulty in adjusting to life of public service. So there is friction in the marriage.
In the meantime, Tilak's enemies kidnap Suryakantham. The rest of the story is about how she is retrieved and how she understands her hubby's altruistic ways.
The film straight away lacks cinematic thrills. To be fair to Neelakanta, he sticks to a straight path and tells a simple tale. But for an audience used to grandeur and twisted plots, it may be adequate.
Venu, as a hero, has still some way to go. He does not impose his authority in the film. Shriya looks bewitching in a simple role. She oozes beauty and poise. Others in the cast are okay.
Music by Vandemathram Sreenivas leaves not much impact. The technical aspects of the film are so-so.
The direction too can pass muster. But not the slow screen play.
The idea to help the society is fine in concept. But fails as a cinema.
