January 13, 2017


Rating: 3.25/5


Raju Garu (Prakash Raj), leads a happy life with his wife (Jayasudha) and grandson Raju (Sharwanand). But he worries about his sons and daughter, who live abroad and rarely visits them.

On the occasion of Sankranthi, he calls his entire family to visit the village. But Raju Garu’s wife realizes her husband’s intention behind calling the family and gets upset. Upon their arrival, few disturbances take place within the family. What is Raju Garu’s intention and what went wrong in the family? Watch Shathamanam Bhavati to know the answers.


As the title itself is smelling, Shathamanam Bhavati is a clean entertainer with good doses of family drama. Every character is so natural that one can own it. The way family values are showcased during this time will go down well with the every section of the audience. 

But there is no proper story line and even not many twists and adding to it, the crux is predictable. The forced comedy is another big disappointment in the film. The pace of the film gets bogged down slightly during the second half and things start getting a tad boring with routine scenes. But, the climax is impressive.


Sharwanand is lovable and impressive with his subtle and neat performance. Even Anupama Parameswaran gives a striking performance. The lead couple’s chemistry looks adorable.

Not to the surprise of many, the hit pair of Prakash Raj and Jayasudha has come up with yet another promising performance. The emotions of the senior actors are one of the major additions of Shathamanam Bhavati.

Mickey J Meyer’s music is good and the camera work needs a special appreciation, as every visual looks colorful. Dil Raju’s production values are on the top notch as expected. Editing is just ok and the dialogues are decent. 

Director Vegesna Satish has picked up a simple story line, but managed to handle it with good narration. He succeeded in showcasing the family emotions and bonding perfectly.   


Shatamanam Bhavati is a clean family entertainer. If the predictable story line is ignored, it can spread family aura throughout.
