tell a friend


The story is about three childhood friends Vennela (Suneetha Varma), Vineeth (Sai Kiran) and Venu (Srinath). They do everything together. Vennela has feelings for Vineeth and vice versa. But they never express it to each other. When Vineeth is away on a tour, Venu proposes to Vennela. Due to the unavoidable circumstances, Vennela ends up in getting engaged to Venu. The rest of the story is all about how the true love wins!

Artists performance:

Sai Kiran: Sai Kiran is getting matured with films. He is really good in this film in terms of looks and histrionics. His acting is cool, controlled and subdued. He has put on some weight and gained more glamour.

Srinath: As a newcomer Srinath is impressive. He looks rugged and slightly resembles Srikanth in few angles. He should get the nose job done in order to improve his looks.

Suneetha Varma: This Telugu girl - from the lineage of Alluri Seetarama Raju - is impressive. She is homely-looking and good at performance. She has a bright career ahead provided that she gets the right break.

Others: Chitram Seenu and Rajeev Kanakala played the negative roles. Brahmanandam, Dharmavarapu Subramanyam, LB Sriram and MS Narayana donned unimpressive comedy-oriented roles. Sirivennela made a special appearance in this film. His definitions about poetry and love are heart touching and excellent.

Technical Departments:

Story - Screenplay - direction - dialogues: Story of the film is very predictable. Direction of the film is mediocre and screenplay is bad. Allani Sridhar - a novelist - failed as a director and screenplay writer with this film. Dialogues of the film are okay except for vulgar dialogues written for Dharmavarapu. 'Uthsaaham' is another example of how novel writers fail to transform their creative thoughts used for writing novels on to the celluloid.

Other departments: Music by Anurag is good. A couple of melodies are soothing to ears. Background music is also OK. Photography of the film is good. But the editing is pathetic.

This film - titled as 'Uthsaaham' (Encouragement) - is a discouraging fair. The narration is pretty confusing and the scenic order is improper. The director failed to capture the attention of viewers even for a frame. After watching plethora of triangular feel-good love stories in post-Nuvvekavali era, this film offers a nothing new. You may safely avoid watching this film.
