REVIEW: Akkineni Naga Chaitanya is impressive in terms of his looks as well as the performance. He delivered his best as per the requirements of his character. The heroine Anu Emmanuel looked glamorous in the movie and she delivered a dominating performance in the movie. The senior actress Ramya Krishnan delivered an amazing performance in the movie and her screen presence is amazing.

The comedy actor Vennela Kishore excelled as the savior of the film. His comedy timing is amazing and entertaining. The other actors Pruthvi, Naresh & Murli Sharma and others did their parts convincingly well.

The story of Shailaja Reddy Alludu is simple and predictable. The director Maruthi Dasari has written each characterization well and made sure that the entertainment episodes have come out well. The music by Gopi Sundar is engaging with nice beats and youthful songs. The two songs Anu Baby and Egiregire are good. Cinematography by Nizar Shafi is good. Art direction is decent. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao is alright. Production values by Sithara Entertainments banner deserve an applause.

Final verdict of the film is ‘Sailaja Reddy Alludu’ is a strictly average family drama which has decent moments here and there. Lack of good entertainment and necessary emotions are basic drawbacks which take down the proceedings a bit.
