Harsha (Mahesh Babu) is the son of a millionaire Ravikanth (Jagapathi Babu). Harsha is a kind of man, who wants to speak less and earns respect by his own. One day Harsha meets Charuseela (Shruti Haasan), who has a desire to develop her village with the latest technology.
Gradually, he falls in love with Charu and he also joins post graduate course in Rural Development. But, Charuseela rejects Harsha’s love as she comes to know his past.
In order to fulfill the dream of Charu, Harsha leaves to Devarakota and adopts that village. But, he faces problems from local rowdy Sasi (played by Sampath) and Union Minister Venkata Ratnam (mukeshi Rishi). Will he able to face that problems? What was Harsha’ past? Why did Charuseela reject his love? To find out answers for these questions, you need to watch Srimanthudu on big screen.
Mahesh Babu looks cute, young and handsome in this movie. His punch dialogues and expressions are the highlights of this movie. Shruti Haasan has done her part well.
Her chemistry with Mahesh Babu is good. Jagapati Babu, Rajendra Prasad, Sukanya, Sivaji Raja, Aamani, Angana Roy, Sanam Shetty, Tejaswi Madivada, Sampath Raj, Mukesh Rishi, Rahul Ravindran and Poorna have done justice to their roles. Ali and Vennala Kishore succeeded in providing relief through their hilarious comedy.
Mahesh Babu’s performance is awesome. Koratala Siva’s direction and screenplay is top-notch. The choreography is good and the costumes, exotic locales are also good. Dialogues written by Siva are another big asset of this movie. Devi Sri Prasad’s music is superb.
There are several predictable scenes and the pace of the narration is very slow. Especially, the second half, which is dead slow.
Srimanthudu has rich production values. Devi Sri Prasad’s background score is the main highlight of this movie. R Madhi’s cinematography is another highlight of this movie. Art direction is commendable. Especially, the sets in the song ‘Dhimmathirigae’ are amazing.
A perfect family entertainer[/vc_wp_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
