Shambho Siva Shambho is glory tale of friendship that leads to a gory tale of vengeance.
The story begins in Rajahmundry. Karunakar (Raviteja), Chandu (Siva Balaji) and Malli (Allari Naresh) are a close knit group of friends and would anything for friendship sake. All the three have their individual goals in life.
Karunakar has affectionate parents (Ahuthi Prasad and Sudha) and he is preparing to get a government job to marry Munemma (Priyamani) daughter of his uncle (Tanikella Bharani) who wants his son-in-law to be a government servant. Malli is the son of a handloom weaver (Kota Srinivasa Rao) who is planning to go abroad for better prospects. Chandu son of Michael Raju (Chandra Mohan) is trying to establish a computer institute. He is in love with Pavitra (Abhinaya) sister of Karunakar.
One day, the three friends save Santosh, son of politician Bhavani (Roja), from an attempted suicide. They come to know that he is in love with the daughter of a Kurnool factionist Narasimha Reddy (Mukesh Rishi). The parents of both Santosh and his lover are against the alliance.
The trio kidnaps her and gets her married to Santosh. As a consequence of factionist violence, Chandu loses his leg, Malli turns deaf and Karunakar loses the opportunity to appear for the examinations for the government post. Moreover, the police have registered a criminal case against them.
Santosh and his wife spend a few days at a farm house and then file a suit for divorce. The enraged trio of Karunakar, Chandu and Malli go after them. Do they want revenge because they sacrificed their goals in life and their lovers? Or do they have something else in Mind? The answers to these questions lead us to the climax.
Ravi Teja is his usual self. Allari Naresh acquits himself well. Shiva Balaji is convincing. Priyamani essays her role well. Abhinaya has good prospects. Surya Tej justifies his character. Tanikella Bharani, Ahuthi Prasad, Chandra Mohan and Mukesh Rishi are their usual selves. Kinnera, Sudha, and Roja have performed to their potential.
Shambho Siva Shambho is the Telugu remake of Tamil film Nadodigal and the director of both Samuthirakani failed to bring in sufficient Telugu nativity to the narration. The film is too long. Too much time is taken to establish the characters. Dialogues are alien and make the characters who mouth them more distant from the audience. Music by Sundar C Babu doesn’t add to the film’s positive side. The comic relief looks redundant. Cinematography by PG Muththaiah is very classy. The film would have been better without the mainstream treatment, without songs, without comedy and made to the point like a serious film.
Can watch for Allari Naresh & Ravi Teja, Complete Family Entertainer, Shambho Siva Shambho is overall a watchable flick.
