Telugu Cinema’s Tryst with an agricultural crisis is an ancient phenomenon. There is no scarcity of films that describe heroes as a Messiah to farmers.
However, this distinguishes it is how rooting is and what the hero is doing to overcome this problem. This tells us that agriculture can benefit also and that young man.
It must lead by looking at agriculture, such as other jobs. Emphasis on labor dignity is everywhere in the film and has a solid emotional core that attacks the right chord. However, the storytelling itself did not have zing, and the narrative fell flat. Even though he managed to convey the message.
Sreekaram is Karthik (Sharwand), a young man who works as a software engineer in Hyderabad.
His parents are living in a small village near Tirupati, and his father was quite proud of his achievements. His friend, Chaitra (Priyanka Arul Mohan), loved Him and wanted to marry him.
Apart from all this, Karthik has their plan – he wants to be a farmer. The best part of the story is about what happened when he destroyed the news at home.
There is a beautiful line in the film where Karthik states that most people return to their village. Only on two occasions – festivals and deaths.
For the remaining time, all the houses are locked, except for some people. No one lives in the village because they can do nothing. Agriculture does not benefit anymore, and the debt continues to accumulate year after year.
Sreekaram gives us an apparent reality to check life in the countryside. About how most people go to town and do an odd job to make a living. When Karthik found what his uncle did in the city, it destroyed it.
In another example, the other villagers. It raised that he could not take care of his mother despite working in the city. Just because he was swamped all the time.
Director Kishore told us the truth in the simplest term. Without turning it into a sermon about how life in the village is better than in cities. Fear of dreams and debts destroyed makes people away from the roots.
This film seems inspired by some true stories where people have returned to the farm and found success.
This encourages the home message that everything might occur. If people keep united and use the modern method when growing their soil.
So far, so good. At the same time, Sreekaram felt bland because nothing extraordinary happened in the story. Conflict and drama in this story are subdued chiefly, and the hinges are too much.
On honesty that Sharwan and bring to the screen. Proceedings get a little predictable, and the drama itself feels like Ted talks. Those are successful entrepreneurs will give how it makes a difference.
But there is something very honest about what Sreekaram and its emotional subtext want. Especially from the bond between Karthik and his father’s goal (Rao Ramesh), which is well illustrated.
Sharwanand shines as a kind young man who wants to give back to the village that has formed his personality. The conversation with Rao Ramesh, an emotional anchor in this film, is one of the story’s best segments.
Priyanka Arul Mohan, who plays a romantic interest in Sharwanand. It has a good screen presence and plays its role with a lot of excitement, even if the role is tense.
Sai Kumar got the role of meat as a lender of money. Whose greed and jealousy damaged many lives, and he discussed his role.

In the end, you see good intentions and honesty. Which Sreekaram wants to present the agricultural crisis and the state of the village to the front line. It finds a simple solution for this problem and tells us.
That life opens many doors for us if we have the desire to follow our hearts. It didn’t try to do something extraordinary in terms of storytelling. But then had enough emotional heft to take the subject seriously.
