Cast and Performance

Superstar Krishna is back to movies after some years with this Sri Sri. He is good as Sri Sri and has given nice performance. He looks too good on screen. Vijay Nirmala is also good but she has given some expressions like in old movies which are over for the present trend of subtle expressions. Murli Sharma as J K Bharadwaj is good as protagonist. Posani Krishna Murali as fake doctor Bikshapathi is nice. He rocks in his own way on screen. Sai Kumar as Surya Rao alias Suranna, a revolutionary is superb and delivers good performance. Naresh as Ajay, a police officer who investigates murder cases of Rahul and his friends is fine.

Story of Sri Sri is so simple and routine. Dialogues are okay. Screenplay is mediocre and doesn’t have the potential to engage audience till the end.

Technical Departments

Music by E S Murthy is bad. Songs are a big drawback and does not help the flow of the movie at all. His background music is so loud and good in some scenes. Cinematography by Satheesh Muthyala is good and can be said as a positive work among all average works. Editing by Ram is okay. He cannot help as the screenplay is not so racy. Production values are good.



  • Superstar Krishna Screen presence
  • Few of his trademark dialogues for fans
  • Cinematography by Sateesh Muthyala


  • Screenplay
  • Music
  • Routine and predictable story


With the voice over of the Superstar Mahesh Babu, this Sri Sri begins. A song which does not fit in the playlist of our generation begins with the introduction of Superstar Krishna, which makes us know the story of movie through its visuals. Vijay Nirmala’s expressions in this song seem to be gone beyond the level of belief. First fifteen minutes takes to introduce the premise and characters of movie. Slowly after some emotional scenes in the eyes of makers and tiring scenes for audience, Superstar decides to take on revenge being compelled by Vijay Nirmala. This movie has nothing to remember after the movie and its screenplay which literally test the patience of audience. Director Muppalaneni Siva has failed to use the stamina and opportunity of his comeback with the lame script and making. To sumup, Sri Sri is neithet entertaining nor thrilling comeback for Superstar Krishna.
