NRI Dr. Ram Mohan (Nagarjuna) along with his wife Seeta (Lavanya Tripathi) returns to his native vilage Sivapuram near Rajamundry, West Godavari district. His mom Satamma aka Satya (Ramya Krishna) is shocked to know that Ram Mohan and Satya decided part ways filing divorce.
Satya who is angry curses her husband Bangaraju (Nagarjuna) who passed away longtime back for the current problems. Satya to her surprise see the soul of Bangaraju and what happened next should be enjoyed on silver screen.
Nagarjuna : He did two different roles in this film and both the roles are amazing, His village nativity Panchakattu get up is top notch, Akkineni fans are loving it. The other character is very simple and convincing. It will be feast for Akkineni fans to see Nagarjuna in dual roles.
Ramya Krishna : Her character is one of the major highlights for this film. She competed with Nagarjuna in many scenes and steals the show, Nagarjuna and Ramya krishna's chemistry is top notch.
Lavanya Tripati : Her character is very limited in the film. She got nothing to do with main stream story but made her presence.
Anushka Shetty did cameo in the film, Anasuya, Hamsa Nandini and Deeksha Panth will feast your Eyes with their Oomph looks. Posani Krishna Murali plays a small role but important one, Sampath Raj plays bad boy character. Nazzar will surprise you at the end. Brahmanandam did different role and it is hilarious. Others just come and go.
Anup Rubens music is melodious and he mixed folk tunes to beautify village environment. All the songs are well choreographed and shot attractively. PS.Vinod's cinematography is beautiful and elevated the film in the rural backdrop. Pavin Pudi's editing is quite good but he could have made second half even crispy. Production values are fine.
Soggade Chinni Nayana is out and out family entertainer. Whole family can watch this film together. Though first half is all about romance, Debutante director Kalyan Krishna handled the script very carefully, there are no double meaning dialogues. Second half is bit slow with predictable screenplay. Nagarjuna's Bangaruraju character is major highlight for this film. Overall, Soggade Chinni Nayana is worth watching film.
Verdict : Out & Out Family Entertainer
Rating : 3.5/5..
