Shailaja Reddy Alludu theatrical trailer
Sailaja Reddy Alludu

Director Maruthi Dasari's Telugu movie Shailaja Reddy Alludu (also spelt as Sailaja) starring Naga Chaitanya, Anu Emmanuel and Ramya Krishnan, has received mixed review and rating from the audience.

Shailaja Reddy Alludu is a romantic action comedy film. Director Maruthi Dasari has written the story, screenplay and dialogues for the movie, which has been produced by S Radha Krishna, Naga Vamsi S and PDV Prasad under the banner Sithara Entertainments. The flick has received a U/A certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.28 hours.

Shailaja Reddy Alludu story: The movie revolves around the love story of poor boy Chaitanya aka Chaitu (Naga Chaitanya), who falls in love rich girl Anu Reddy (Anu Emmanuel), who reciprocates his love after declining it initially. But her mother Sailaja Reddy (Ramya Krishnan) becomes an obstacle for them. How Chaitu wins his love forms the crux of the story.

Analysis: Shailaja Reddy Alludu brings back Telugu dramas from the '90s and early 2000s that dealt with a confrontation between mother-in-law and son-in-law. But Maruthi Dasari's magic touch to this routine story makes it a good family entertainer. The comedy episodes are the highlights of the movie, say the viewers.

Performances: Naga Chaitanya has delivered good performance, which is the highlight of Shailaja Reddy Alludu. Ramya Krishnan's acting is the next big attraction. Anu Emmanuel has done a good job and her chemistry with the hero is one of the highlights. Vennela Kishore, Naresh, Murali Sharma and Prudhvi Raj have also done justice to their roles and they are assets of the film, says the audience.

Technical: Shailaja Reddy Alludu has good production values and picturisation, songs, background score, dialogues and action choreography are the attractions on the technical front, add the viewers.

#ShailajaReddyAlludu It is about a guy caught in triangle tangle consisting of three egoist persons – his father, girlfriend and her mother. Vennela Kishore's comedy and Ramya Krishna's screen presence adds value to an other wise regular masala drama.

Azhar‏ @maxwell_azhar

#ShailajaReddyAlludu pure family entertainer Hittu cinema That climax scene between @ItsAnuEmmanuel and ramyakrishnan garu was so well done and so emotional. There are really no words to describe how heart touching it was. Oh! @ItsAnuEmmanuel You did a sensational job there! #ShailajaReddyAlludu

#ShailajaReddyAlludu -A joyable family entertainer for this festive weekend with @DirectorMaruthi 's mark of comedy and decent performances from the stylish @chay_akkineni , beautiful @ItsAnuEmmanuel @murlisharma72 sir, and our lady superstar @meramyakrishnan

Sampath‏ @_SampathKP

It's an old concept, but when written well it can still be good entertainment. The characterizations are half baked and under written. The comedy works here and there but that is more due to Vennela Kishore performance rather Maruthi's writing. #ShailajaReddyAlludu The best bit in #ShailajaReddyAlludu comes in the very end when credit roll. Its bit where Ramya Krishna dances. It is very gracious and syncs well with Gopi Sundar music but it is very short because when Anu Emanuel join Ramya Krishna all the grace and beauty is gone.

Haricharan Pudipeddi @pudiharicharan

#ShailajaReddyAlludu is a familiar family entertainer that works predominantly due to the performances of @chay_akkineni and @meramyakrishnan. @vennelakishore's comedy also gives the film a much needed boost.

#ShailajaReddyAlludu has nothing new to offer and also predictable but it's not boring, making it a decent watch. Naga Chaitanya and Ramya Krishna performance comedy OK. Cinematography One time for timepass.

Karthik‏ @HeIsKARTHIK

#ShailajaReddyAlludu - (2/5) Clinched and Predictable Though the 1st half runs leisurely with few good episodes, 2nd half runs POINTLESSLY with Suplots n repeated Fight-Song sequences. BORING comedy. In all, despite of Strong Lead-Cast Presence the movie FAILS to Entertain..!

No real competition- good combo - positive vibes- ramyakrishnan factor - mass Bomma - good music , finally seems everything is falling into place for @chay_akkineni , will eliver the elusive blockbuster that's evading him for these many years #Shailajareddyalludu

Sai Kiran

Story is looking like age old routine story.. but maruthi's magic will change the mood and movie experience.. his comdey episodes are one of the best in recent times.. have to expect the same.. naga chaitanya should get luck from samantha and should have a blockbuster movie..all the movie team
