Hardly did Telugu film watchers ever missed Allu Arjun’s entertainer in any given year since his first film “Gangotri”, made in 2003. Despite repeated plots, the actor still commands more fans than any other Telugu film hero owing mostly to his style and confidence, besides his family roots in the film field.
The title of the film, aptly given, introduces the hero Allu Arjun who is son of Satyamurthy, (Prakash Raj) a generous and rich man faces twists in life when his father loses all his property.
Forced to look for an alternative lifestyle in city to earn and repay the huge debt, he leaves the family behind and settles in city as a wedding planner and struggles to earn enough money to finally clear his father’s debt. Simple but not boring either.
To be released in 800 multiplex screens on Friday, “S/o. Satyamurthy” should take care of this weekend’s entertainment quotient for the Telugu movie fans in all metros and the two Telugu-speaking states of AP and Telangana.
Beyond AP and Telangana, even Bangalore is likely to see huge rush as the film is being released in 36 theatres while in Chennai, more than 20 theatres are likely to show the film, besides few in Kerala, where the actor has many fans.
