It is important to stress here that Kalyana Vaibhogame has an interesting premise – mirroring the constant pressures that two different generations face and the resultant conflicts that could eventually disrupt normal lives. All this, is done with the help of a girl and a boy, and their not very perfect families. The film doesn’t even give you something new to take home and you are left with the predictable scenes like the families finding out about the truth, the duo eventually falling for each other and in the end, they apparently will live happily ever after.
Kalyana Vaibhogame is a feel good film with some beautiful musical renditions and commendable camera work. But that’s not enough because it doesn’t give you anything new and constantly leaves you in the feeling of deja vu of several love stories you’ve seen over the years. If Nandini Reddy’s Ala Modalaindi was the pinnacle, this one is just halfway up.
