A small-budget film titled Sharathulu Varthistahi was released today. It stars Chaitanya Rao, who gained fame from 30 Weds 21, as the protagonist. Let’s find out the film fares.


Chiranjeevi played by Chaitanya Rao works in a government office and struggles to make ends meet for his family. He has the responsibility of taking care of his mother and two siblings and has been in a long-term relationship with Vijayshanthi, played by Bhoomi Shetty, who has been his support system since childhood. However, his life takes a turn when he becomes the victim of financial fraud. The film Sharathulu Varthisthai depicts how Chiranjeevi deals with this challenge.

Technical Analysis:

The music of Arun Chiluveru is good and the cinematography by Praveen Vanamali and Shekar Pochampally is neat, the editing needs improvement with some trimming. The intention of Director Kumara Swamy to raise awareness about financial fraud is commendable, but the narration of the film is not engaging enough. Although the film has a strong message, it is weakened by many dull scenes.

Plus Points:

  • Chaitanya Rao delivers a convincing performance as a middle-class individual, effectively embodying the role of Chiranjeevi
  • Chaitanya Rao’s dialogue delivery resonates with middle-class families, adding relatability to the character.
  • Bhoomi Shetty’s portrayal of a significant role is natural and commendable.
  • The inclusion of a strong female lead adds depth to the narrative, contributing positively to the film.
  • Certain scenes featuring the lead actors are executed neatly, particularly in the first half, providing engaging moments for the audience.
  • Director Kumara Swamy does a splended job of portraying the issues concerning multi-level marketing scams that target middle-class families

Minus Points:

  • The overall pacing of the film is sluggish, with many scenes feeling dull.
  • Emotional moments are overdone, diminishing their impact, and the social commentary lacks conviction.
  • The film tends to overemphasize its social message, resulting in an excessive amount of preaching.
  • The second half of the film is notably boring and tests the audience’s patience. Predictability and unnecessary prolongation contribute to its lack of engagement.
  • Additionally, the incorporation of the election angle feels forced and disrupts the narrative flow.


Overall, Sharathulu Varthisthai is a movie that aims at a middle-class audience but unfortunately, the execution of the movie is dull. The plot revolves around multi-level marketing scams, which can relate to many people, but the script fails to engage the viewers. However, Chaitanya Rao and Bhoomi Shee=tty have done a good job in their respective roles, and the first half of the movie has some decent moments. But the second half of the movie is tiring and has tedious scenes, making Sharathulu Varthisthai a disappointing watch.
