Director Nuthan Umesh's debut venture Krishnan Marriage Story has been promoted as a sequel to the hit movie Krishnan Love Story, but it is not a sequel. Altogether it has a different story and Umesh has nicely mixed the joint family story with humour, fun and sentiments. His effort could have been even more impressive if he had done little bit of home work on the script.
Krishnan Marriage Story is romantic-comedy film with all necessary commercial ingredients. Ajay Rao's acting and Nidhi Subbaiah's glamourous performance are the major highlight of the movie. Sridhar Sambhram's fantastic music, Shekhar Chandra's superb camera work, Manju Mandavya's dialogues, good choreography, beautiful locations and costumes are the other attractions of the film.
The movie neatly presents and promotes the family values in increasingly cynical society. The first half of the film has some of the strong and refreshing scenes and it is quite entertaining. But the story becomes predictable and formulaic in the second half, which is a cocktail of many sequences taken from many successful films. The climax has been shot well.
Krishna is an ad film producer, who stays in a joint family. He is everybody's favourite in the family. Once he visits his grandmother's place, where he meets beautiful girl Khushi, who is a software engineer and has returned to her village for rest. He falls in love with her and eventually ties the knot with her. But the story takes different twist when Krishna's family learns that Khushi will not live long. What happens next would be very interesting to watch onscreen.
Ajay Rao has given wonderful performance as Krishna and he has shown his prowess in dance, fight and sentimental sequences. Nidhi has a tailor-made role and she looks very glamorous and stunning. She has delivered excellent acting in the climax part. Jai Jagadish, Vinaya Prasad, Nagendra Shah, Balaraj and Sangeeta have also done justice to their respective roles.
In the technical front, Sridhar Sambhram's music is the main attraction. He has composed fantastic tunes for the songs of Krishnan Marriage Story. And his background score is also commendable. The choreography in the songs 'Parijatha...' and 'Nidde Bandhilla...' is equally good quality. Shekhar Chandru's camera work is excellent and he has captured some of the best scenes. Manju Mandavya's dialogues, beautiful locations and costumes are the other plus points of the movie.
Overall, Nuthan Umesh has done a wonderful job in the movie Krishnan Marriage Story, which is a good family entertainer.
