Director Bobby aka KS Ravindra's Telugu movie Venky Mama, starring Venkatesh, Naga Chaitanya, Raashi Khanna and Payal Rajput, has received positive reviews and ratings from the audience around the world.
Venky Mama is an action comedy film and KS Ravindra has written the script and dialogues with K Janardhan Maharshi and Kona Venkat. D Suresh Babu, TG Vishwa Prasad and Vivek Kuchibhotla have jointly produced it under the banners Suresh Productions and People's Media Factory. The movie has received a U/A certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.29 hours.
Venky Mama movie story: Set in 1993, the film is about a renowned astrologer (Nasaar), whose daughter marries her lover against the astrological predictions and dies in an accident. His son Venky (Venkatesh) takes care of his nephew Karthik (Naga Chaitanya) without getting married. Karthik starts looking for a girl for his mama. But he goes on to join the army after he fails to get his love Harika (Raashi Khanna). What happens next forms the crux of the movie.
Analysis: Venky Mama deals with a routine family drama. The first half, which is all the way Venkatesh's show, has nothing new to offer story-wise and regular entertainment stuff keeps you engaged. Naga Chaitanya takes the centre stage in the second half, which is no better than the first half. Kashmir scenes appear to be jarring, say the audience.
Performances: Venkatesh and Naga Chaitanya have delivered good performances and their bonding is a treat to watch on screen. Raashi Khanna and Payal Rajput's glamour and chemistry with heroes are good. Prakash Raj, Nassar, Parag Tyagi, Sampath Raj, Rao Ramesh, Posani Krishna Murali, Brahmaji, Vidyullekha Raman and Hyper Aadi have done justice to their roles, says the audience.
Technical: Venky Mama has decent production values and beautiful picturisation and exotic locales make this film a visual treat. Thaman's songs and background score, dialogue, action and colourful costumes are the attractions on the technical front, add the viewers.

#VenkyMama is just a passable entertainer. Entertaining first half but 2nd half has flaws and Army scenes are a big minus. #Venkatesh was good enough and #Chaitanya tried well. More focus on plot would have helped. Just Average.

#VenkyMamaA film about bonding between an inseparable uncle and nephew is told in a regular commercial pattern. As long as the film focuses on Venky and Chaitu's fun banter, it makes a decent watch. But the dated story and final portions don't work.

Telugu Premiere @TeluguPremiere
#VenkyMama: Good First Half, followed by a Decent Second Half. Director could have done a lot better with the execution in second half. Overall, it's #Venkatesh show all the way and that would be enough to pull in family audiences. #HBDVictoryVenkatesh #NagaChaitanya

#VenkyMama 1 time watchable. Forced comedy and military backdrop scenes major flaws.
#VenkyMama first half is well made , perfect Mass Masala. ✓The intro of venkatesh ✓Giving dhamki to Local MLA ✓Chai gave right support to elevate scenes for "Venkatesh Mass". ✓Hope chai takes this forward in 2nd half, as there could be military scenes from here. Done with 2nd half. #VenkyMama has right proportions of comedy, emotion, music and fights. దీన్నే "commercial hit" అంటారు ఇంగ్లిష్ లో.

First half done Out d Out #Venky show #VenkyMama rocks
#VenkyMama is a strictly average film. The 2nd half of the film lags. Performance of Chay and Venky is good. Director failed to utilise a rare opportunity. One time watchable. #VenkateshDaggubati #VenkyMamaReview

#VenkyMama A heart touching emotional journey with top notch performances from the lead actors. My guess is around ₹45 Cr WW Share. #HBDVictoryVenkatesh #HBDVenkyMama
