Srinu lands in Hyderabad and clash with Dada Babuji (Prathap Ravat) , Dada likes Srinu’s courage and gives him an assignment to kidnap  the PR’s daughter. Srinu goes to Kolkata. How he manages to get back his love by mind games..forms story.


The chemistry betwen Gopi Chand and Regina was good and heroine’s glamour touch was extra attraction for the film. Sivaji Raja, Raghu Babu and Pruthvi have managed to bring some entertainment. Pruthvi with spoofs of hit movies srimanthudu and Baahubali were ok. Posani was good .Brahmanandam’s presence cannot safe the script. Sowcar Janaki has done a cameo as granny .
For any film , Exciting Interval Block and Climax are necessity. Pre Interval action episode and introduction of main villain during interval was good But the Climax with routine dance and song formula is a big let down.

Prasad Murella’s cinematography was good , Anub Rubens Music was routine , no freshness. Goutham Raju’s editing was good in first half . Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan have worked for the film but their work was routine . Screenplay is the big minus for the film.

The movie plot seems to be developed based on other Tollywood hit films . Direction is the biggest minus for the film , Director Ravi Kumar Chowdary could not deliver what he has scripted on the screen. The movie has failed to engage audience although it has commercial elements and parody comedy. The director lost grip on the film from the very 1st fifteen minutes , making it a boring plot in the second half. Over all , Soukhyam is a Dull film .
