Gudipoodi Srihari Review

Expectations from Arun Prasad, the director of the hit film Tammudu, were high. But he disappoints with Prema Sandadi. Moreover, he lets the obscenity seep in. The story line is too weak to hold the audience in its grip. And it is the routine story of Rayalaseema factionalism, with two groups, led by Raghupati Rayudu (Capt. Raju) and Chengal Rayudu (Mohanraj) being constantly at war. The enmity colors the second generation, with their younger brothers Subba Rayudu (Kota Srinivasa Rao) and Venkatrayudu (Jayaprakash Reddy), continuing the legacy of hatred.

Krishna (Srikanth), son of Subb Rayudu after completing his MBA in the U.S. is returning home in a train. Incidentally Sita (Anjala Zhaveri), Venkatrayudu's daughter, who too completes MBA, but at Visakhapatnam, also travels on the same train. But both of them are hardly award of each other's presence. They remain strangers till almost the last reel of the film. But the families and friends on either side think they are in love, because of the wrong information fed by Samara Simha Reddy (Brahmanandam). He is a modern day Narada. The warring fathers on either side take their children to task, even as they deny the charge. A miffed Krishna actually decides to go for her. Sita also thinks alike. The result: the two meet and fall in love.

The plot is loaded with too many irrelevant characters. Krishna's half a dozen of friends, for example, just blabber throughout the film. Srikanth and Anjala's roles have not been etched properly.

Scenes depicting factionalism look senseless. All the elderly characters spend most the time hurling innuendoes at each other.

Vinod appears after a long time in a role that does not help him. Koti's music fails to save the film or audience.
