It takes guts to make a film like Sri Srimati Satyabhama. And S V Krishna Reddy, the renowned director of the Telugu film industry (forget about the producer for the moment), seems to be endowed with the courage to pursue a plot that seems stupid by any standards.

It goes like this: a rich businessman, Ranganath, has a lovely daughter, Vijayashanti, for whose happiness he would do anything, even partake of his riches. And in a fit of emotion he gets all his riches transferred to his brother-in-law Ashok's son, Raghu, on the grounds that Vijayashanti and Raghu would become husband and wife anyway.

His job done, Ranganath dies of heart attack. And the inevitable happens. Ashok throws Vijayashanti and her mother out of the house and packs off Raghu to United States of America.

Fifteen years later, Raghu is back in India and is still proclaiming his love for Vijayashanti. Unable to convince his father, he poisons Vijayashanti and himself. But by a miraculous twist of fate he survives while Vijayashanti dies. Only to surface in New Zealand as Dolly.

Our hero goes to New Zealand to recover from the shock of survival, and promptly falls for Dolly. He convinces her to come to India. She reveals to her uncle that she is the same Satyabhama in disguise. From here to the finish the film is about how Vijayashanti creates nightmarish moments for her tormenter.

Nothing in the film is worth a mention. Vijayashanti is a good actress, but probably it is the problem of the evolution of our audiences and of the script-writers. She's now too big for normal glamour roles aside Telugu heroes, and women-oriented super-heroine roles don't seem to click anymore. You unfortunately can't be a Julia Roberts or a Michelle Pfieffer in ol' Andhra, that kind of scripts are neither there for the offing, nor have a market. This is an outcome of all that. She needs to do roles that portray her as the 'hero' of the movie with the rest of the cast practically rookies, since she can't be a conventional heroine, and the audiences have had enough of that. Even Hema Malini did only one Seetha Aur Geetha.

These folks apparantly spent a couple of crores to give some gloss to the film. On hindsight, it proves to be a waste of precious money. The comedy is stupid, and the performances of other actors leave a lot to be desired. Sri Sreemati Satyabhama is bad. If you don't want to waste your valuable time, keep far away from the theaters.

What's wrong with wanting to act in a heroine oriented movie? Vijayashanti had guts and yes,, so does S.V. It is the audience & industry problem and mistake, if there is no great market for heroine oriented movies yet in Andhra. It is a shame! She is the one who made a producer A.M.Rathnam who went on to make BBs like Khushi, Aarambham making out stars like Pawan Kalyan, Vijay, Ajith and even went on to make his son as hero and then he had no real guts to make movie with the same woman who provided him money as a gift for him being her makeup man! Karthavyam which ruled the entire India is made on her money and she is the actual producer and he might be the executive but given the tag of producer meaning him taking all the returns! With that money, many big budget movies of star heroes were made in telugu and tamil, but not with Vijayashanti, the one whom he brainwashed into getting money just the same way his guru got from being makeup man to producer! She liked the script and agreed to do it and that is bcoz she had the guts to go for variation. She tired of doing cliched movies long back when she was still in form and left those mainstream films willingly. So yes, irrespective of the movie's success with limited budget and release, they had the guts.
