The muhurtham for the release of Vivaha Bhojanambu is set on August 27 on SonyLIV
Amidst the pandemic, there were several news making rounds about couples getting married in the air and finding other creative ways to get hitched, owing to lockdown restrictions across the country. Taking a comical note of such instances, director Ram Abbaraju has helmed a Telugu film Vivaha Bhojanambu.
The dramedy is based on a couple who decide to marry amidst the pandemic. Mahesh from a middle-class family falls in love with Ramya who hails from a rich joint family. Taking advantage of the pandemic situation, Mahesh convinces both the families to get them married in the presence of close relatives, so that he could save on the money for marriage. But soon, a nationwide lockdown is announced and he gets 'house arrested' with 14 people for 21 days. The drama and comedy that unfolds among the family members form the rest of the story.
The film will have Telugu comedian Satya Akkala play the role of Mahesh and debutant Aarjavee Raaj as Ramya. Speaking about the film, Satya Akkala said in a statement that Vivaha Bhojanambu is a story around the lockdown that we all can relate to. "The film underlines a host of hilarious and awkward instances between families who are stuck together due to the sudden lockdown post the wedding," he said adding that he thoroughly enjoyed playing Mahesh and it was no less than a riot filming the drama.
