Sadhyam Review

There are several reasons why someone would to watch Sadhyam, and they all begin 18 inches above Priyamani's knees. Okay, some people might argue that we're being unfair to the film, so we'll add to the sentence above - there are several other reasons why one might want to watch Sadhyam, and they all start 6 inches below her neck, moving upward.

Now let us move on to the story. It opens with a paranoid Suhani (Priyamani) freaking out at every little sound anyone makes around her and every little glance anyone directs towards her. Basically, she thinks everyone is out to get her. Just like we are feeling. Still, she bravely goes through life. Just like we are going through Sadhyam.

One night she rescues a rich man (Tanikella Bharani) in an accident. He thanks her profusely, but all she can think about is how liberated she would be if she started shooting everyone who ever bothered her in the past. The man, in gratitude, loads the gun with one bullet and tells her to shoot the one person she thinks is worth killing. You're wondering why he gave her just one bullet, but you quickly remember that she doesn't need bullets to kill people - the movie's doing their job already, and 70% faster, too.

In a flashback, we are shown Suhani's college days. The guys at her college kept shooting pictures of the cleavages of their girl classmates, including that of Suhani, but she and her best friend (Keerti Chawla) give them an earful if not an MMS-ful. This part of the script is related to nothing in particular, but if you've come to this film to be particular about things, then you deserve to sit through it.

Anyway, this best friend (Keerti Chawla) kept snatching everything away from her, and cheated her out of a job at a hotel, as well as of her dignity. So our present Suhani goes to kill her, but discovers to her horror that she's now mentally unstable. Apparently while cheating Suhani out of that job, she had slept with the hotel chairman. This made her father kill himself, which made the girl lose her mind. Well, if you want to lose your mind at this point you can go ahead, but remember that it's not something worth killing people over.

We then move to a more recent flashback in which Sandeep (Jagapathi Babu), a completely random guy, enters the scene and tries to land her. We later come to know that he was behind all the nice things that kept happening to Suhani, like her getting a job, and like him wearing all those clothes that were 2 inches too loose for her.

At this point, several questions are going on in your head - namely, "Is this a thrilling love story?", "Is this a love story?", "Is this a story?" and "What?" None of the answers can be found ever, but if you get out of the theatre, you'll at least get some fresh air.

This film was made just so Priyamani could get paid for her pre-summer undress session. Several things don't make sense in the movie - right from the fact that in the beginning she's a timid woman and she wears a cleavage-baring T-shirt, a leather jacket, tight jeans and boots. The incomprehensibility increases exponentially until you console yourself that this is just a movie and that it's okay. The story has no direction and keeps jumping randomly from one idea to another, with too many loopholes to keep count of.

Priyamani is a fantastic actress and she delivers in the acting department, but this is simply a film meant to nose-dive at the box office. Jagapathi Babu appears after almost the entire first half is done with, and has a limited role anyway. He might want to stay away from dingy productions and act his age if he wants his films to have positive recall value. Apart from Kota Srinivasa Rao and Tanikella Bharani, the rest of the cast is hardly something to write home about.

The visuals are all blurred and the songs are hideous if you end up hearing them. A couple of songs are for the Priyamani fans, though, and the rest are for the fans of the theatre restrooms.

On the whole, a no-no.

Lol Boosom review .. I mean ossom review !! But miss garimella i think u being under the festive spirit of milad un nabi or the bhang spirit of holi or just under the influence of spirits has something to do with the high rating of 3 for this movie .
After 2 months of staring at those big posters of sadhyam where priyamani is showing doing those o so talented stretches wearing those 4th class PT shorts of hers i finally saw this movie 1st day 1st show . Those 21/2 hrs were responsible for makin my face go :-D to 8-C , My brain cell count go from 2 bllion to 1 lakh , and my testesterone levels go from 330ng/dl to 33000 ng/dl .
Priyamani dresses up like lara croft , dances like mumaith khan and stammers like shah rukh khan . Jagapati babu looks like jagapati babu , romances like jagapati babu and dresses up like well lets not talk about that . Keerthi chawla dresses , talks , eats , walks ,sleeps , dances and prances around like shakeela in wonderland.

The problem with this movie is that its like sunil shetty -- Boring , confusing , unintelligent not worth taking notice of .
At the end of the movie when i found out that there was going to be a sadhyam 2 , all i could say was --quoting gurugaru shri brahmanandam - "KILL ME SAR !!"

Pros: Priyamanis costumes
Cons: Jagapati babus costumes and some 3716387 other flaws
