Kalyana Vaibhogame Movie ReviewApr 21, 2016 11:38 AM IST
After a promising debut with 'Alaa Modalaindi', Nandini Reddy failed to cross the second hurdle. 'Jabardasth' bombed at the box-office and the director took her time to come up with her next. Her third film, 'Kalyana Vaibhogame', released today amidst good expectations. Naga Shaurya and Malavika Nair play the leads in this movie. Let's see if it is a comeback film for the director or not.
Shourya (Naga Shourya), a gaming expert, and Divya (Malavika Nair), a doctor, both have the typical mindset of today's youth. They don't want to marry, since they feel it is a big responsibility. But as it turns out, their parents fix their marriage together. Perturbed by the development, they together devise a plan to avoid the marriage. The rest of the story is all about if they are successful in executing the plan or not and what are the challenges they encounter.
Naga Shaurya is effortless in the role of Shourya and he looks very handsome. He perfectly fits the bill and once again proved that he is an actor to look out for. Malavika Nair has also got a lot of ease in acting and impresses with her performance. Raasi is good in the role of heroine's mother and she will sure get to play many more such roles. Every actor did a good job.
