Movie: Welcome Obama
Director : Singeetham Srinivasa Rao
Producer : S.Bharati Krishna
Music Director : Singeetham Srinivasa Rao
Starring : Sanjeev, Urmila, Rachel
Release date : 20 September 2013
Welcome Obama is the story of a surrogate child, Krishna. He is born for an American couple in the womb of an Indian mother, Yashoda (Urmila). Lucy, the American mother wants a perfect boy but discard him even before he is born as Yashoda fall down creating a delivery complexity. Later she delivers a beautiful and active boy and every one calls him Obama due to his white skin. Years later, Lucy gets to know about the boy and comes to India to take him. Yashoda develops a strong bond with him and refuses to send him back. But Lucy manages to acquire him legally. What happens next is the rest of the story.
Though it is her debut, Urmila delivered an extraordinary performance as a loving and caring mother. Her minute facial expressions are absolutely perfect. Rachel is okay as a foreign lady who doesn’t care relationships. Sanjeev is decent enough in an important role. The kid who did the role of Krishna is cute. We can’t expect a foreign kid to deliver better than what he did in a Telugu film.
The movie seem to be a old wine in a new bottle idea. The film reminds us old movies with concepts like ‘Penchina Thalli, Kanna Thalli’. But the concept of surrogacy is new to Telugu audience. It is interesting to see a old man thinking ahead. Coming in to the technicalities, the story moves with very slow pace. You almost feel like you are watching a documentary. There is a little comedy track in the movie which is also not effective.
Singeetham Sreenivasa Rao has touched almost all the genres of Cinema. He has super hits, blockbusters and prominent awards in his kitty. But ‘Welcome Obama’ is not expected from a director like him.
Though basic plot of the story is fresh, the treatment is obsolete. He extracted great performances from the actors but his script has no soul. There are infinite scenes in the film with no logic. Anantha Sreeram and Bhuvana Chandra comedy episode makes you feel that Singeetham Sreenivasa Rao is still in 1990s. His comedy has become tragedy to the audience. He also composed music for this film.
All the songs are good, situational and picturized well. Length is one of the major problem due to the poor editing. 20-25 minutes of the film could have been chopped off. Dialogues, penned by actress Rohini, are weak.
Feel towards the end of the movie
Absence of entertainment.
The comedy track between the writers seem to be of stone age old.
Final Word: Singeetham Srinivasa Rao should have never attempted a project like this. Audience would have felt that ‘Welcome Obama’ is outdated even if it were released a decade ago. It is a case of ‘good story wasted by a bad direction and weak screenplay’. Watch it at your own risk.
