Swathimuthyam, the delightful family entertainer written and directed by a newcomer Lakshman K Krishna, was the darkhorse among all the festive releases this Dasara and emerged the favourite of the critics when it hit theatres. The film, marking the acting debut of Ganesh Bellamkonda, featured Varsha Bollamma as the female lead. Mahati Swara Sagar scored the music for the project produced by S Naga Vamsi under Sithara Entertainments in collaboration with Fortune Four Cinemas.
After releasing in theatres on October 5, the film is all set to have its OTT premiere. Telugu OTT platform aha has acquired the streaming rights of the entertainer and will premiere the film on October 28, three weeks post its theatrical run. Announcing the same, aha wrote, "Overall ga #SwathimuthyamOnAHA, pakka entertainer 😉 Premieres Oct 28." Goparaju Ramana, Naresh, Rao Ramesh, Surekha Vani, Pragathi Suresh, Vennela Kishore, Sri Divya and others too played key roles in the film.
The story revolves around Balamurali Krishna, a humble government employee on the cusp of marriage. When Bala nearly gives up hope on the matches coming his way, cupid strikes him as he meets Bhagya Lakshmi. The latter takes time to trust him and just when it looks like any other ‘they live happily ever after’ tale, there’s mayhem. Will Bala get out of the mess and marry Bhagya Lakshmi?
With cinematography by Suryaa, the film was edited by Navin Nooli. Avinash Kolla handled art direction for the romance presented by PDV Prasad. Swathimuthyam was particularly praised for its clean writing and the performances of its supporting cast, Rao Ramesh and Goparaju Ramana in particular. Despite the positive feedback, the film didn't perform as expected at the box office.
