Kalavaramaye Madilo is the saga of a singer whose aim is to become a great vocalist.
Shreya (Swathi) wants to become a great vocalist and dreams of singing under the direction of AR
Rahman. She lives with her mother (Delhi Rajeswari) who supports her always. While wirking in an office she starts singing with a music troop in a five star hotel. Sreenu (Kamal Kamaraju) an NRI is a regular customer of the hotel where Shreya is a singer.
Rao (Vikram Gokhale) and his friend Sastry (Tanikella Bharani) happen to listen to the songs of Shreya and Rao who is a music guru points out certain basic flaws in her singing. Though hurt by the criticism, Shreya wants to become a great vocalist and becomes the shishya of Rao and learns the fundamentals of music. Sreenu also helps her in her endeavour.
The rest of the story deals with how Shreya accomplishes her dream of becoming a great singer.
Swathi looks like a blithe spirit and is very convincing in her role of an aspiring singer trying to become one of the best vocalists. Kamal Kamaraju as the foreign returned man is very dignified and elegant. Vikram Gokhale is a lesson in method acting. Tanikella Bharani gives an energetic and electrifying performance. Delhi Rajeshwari and Pragati are quite adequate in their roles.
We have seen films like Shankarabharanam and Sagara Sangamam that deal with characters who are singers and who live in their own world of music. Kalavaramaye Madilo which is also the story of a singer has some moments that resemble some situations in the above films. The narration and presentation of the film is OK but the screenplay dips and drags in the latter half. Technically all the departments are of good quality.
Kalavaramaye Madilo is an out and out Swathi’s film and can be watched for her carefree expressions and for listening to some good music.
