Niharika Konidela is slowly trying to establish a good name in the industry by doing both movies as well as web series. Her previous movie ‘Oka Manasu’ received a negative response which made Niharika to take up a family entertainer ‘Happy Wedding’ this time. Sumanth Ashwin whose previous movie also turned out to be a debacle is starring in ‘Happy Wedding’. Penned and helmed by Lakshman Karya, two production banners UV Creations and Pocket Cinema collaborated to produce this project. Bal Reddy worked as the cinematographer and handled the camera. Shakthikanth Karthick and SS Thaman composed the tunes. Both Niharika and Suamanth Ashwin are eager to taste success this time. Here is the how far the movie impressed the audience.
Akshara (Niharika Konidela) is a saree designer who is a simple and independent girl who often finds it difficult to choose what is good for her and ends up getting confused. On the other hand, Anand (Sumanth Ashwin) is a happy-go-lucky guy who works as an Ad scriptwriter. The duo falls in love in no time and their parents agrees to get them married. Some small issues between the leads and the sudden entry of Akshara’s ex-boyfriend Vijay complicate the situation and throws Akshara in confusion about whom to pick between Vijay and Anand. How Akshara clears her confusion and get a clarity about her love? How the parents react to her confusion? What happens at the end forms the rest of the story.
Niharika showed a lot of improvement in terms of performance. Her dialogue delivery and expressions got better than her previous flicks. She looked really beautiful in this film. Sumanth Ashwin did his best justifying his role. He also improved a lot in terms of action. The duo individually did their best but failed to cook up the good chemistry between them. It could have been even better if they worked on their chemistry. The supporting actors Pavitra Lokesh, Murali Sharma, Tulasi and Naresh made their presence felt and Annapurna did a good role and creates some good laughs for the audience.
Despite being a debutant, Lakshman Karya did his best and deserves a lot of appreciation from the movie lovers. He handles the story well. He has penned some interesting and powerful dialogues. He designed the characters as easily relatable. Every character in the film has their own importance. He executed the emotional scenes perfectly well but falls behind when it came to the romantic scenes. The production values by UV Creations and Pocket Cinema are excellent. The music by Shakthikanth Karthick is extraordinary. SS Thaman scored some captivating BGM for the film. The cinematography by Bal Reddy is pretty good.
‘Happy Wedding’ is a tale between two poles apart people who falls in love with each other and clear their differences to be together. The first half is good when compared to the lot of emotional drama the second half carried. On a whole, ‘Happy Wedding’ is a worth-watching, well acted and realistic love story but also has a fair amount of flaws.
PB Rating : 3/5
