Press Release

National, 19th August, 2021

SonyLIV adds a new flavor of entertainment to its slate, with its

first Telugu film ‘Vivaha Bhojanambu’. We witnessed many couples

beating all odds with lockdown weddings in the past year. Bringing one

such relatable story from the lockdown diaries, SonyLIV sets a lighter

mood with this dramedy of a couple who decide to marry amidst the

pandemic. But the real chaos sets in when a Lockdown of 21 days is

announced. Inspired by true events, a Ram Abbaraju directorial, Vivaha

Bhojanambu is set to launch on 27th August on SonyLIV.

The film revolves around a love-story between Mahesh, a shrewd miser

from a middle-class household and Ramya who hails from a rich joint

family. Taking advantage of the pandemic situation, Mahesh convinces

the families to get them married in the presence of close relatives.

Little did he know that a nationwide lockdown would thwart his

attempts for a cost-effective marriage. What happens when a

close-fisted son-in-law is locked inside a house of 14 people for 21

days? Expect a punch of laughter riots and hilarious situations in

this perfectly knit lockdown story laced with oodles of comedy.

The film features the prevalent Telugu comedian Satya Akkala as Mahesh

and debutant Aarjavee Raaj as Ramya in the lead roles. Vivaha

Bhojanambu is produced by Sundeep Kishan who will also be seen playing

a cameo role along with K. S. Sinish Production House: Soldiers

Factory, Venkatadri Talkies, Anandi Arts. The music has been lent by

Anivee. Additionally, film has an excellent cast of Sudarshan,

Srikanth Iyengar, Subbaraya Sharma, TNR, Viva Harsha in prominent

roles. Apart from Telugu the movie will also be available in

Malayalam, Tamil and Kannada.

. Pushing the envelope of our south content further, we are delighted

to launch our 1st Telugu film - Vivaha Bhojanambu for our audience

across regions. Given the unprecedented times, the film rides high on

comedy and brings out a fresh, relatable story around the lockdown

situation we all have been in. We are confident this film will bring

out an enjoyable experience for our audience.”

Ram Abbaraju, Director

The lockdown had taken a toll on everyone and bringing a story like

Vivaha Bhojanambu is definitely the need of the hour. The film

captures the essence of what we've gone through in the unprecedented

pandemic, but with a dash of comedy. We hope the audience enjoys every

bit of the film and relates to incidents that occur when a wedding

takes place just before everything goes upside down. I am looking

forward to its release on SonyLIV.

Satya Akkala, Actor

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. I have thoroughly enjoyed playing Mahesh

and it was no less than a riot filming this one. I can’t wait for the

audience reactions to the film on SonyLIV.”
