Kalapuram Movie Review: Satyam Rajesh, one of Tollywood’s most well-known actors, has portrayed a variety of characters in the past. But in his next movie Kalapuram, he will make his acting debut as the lead character. The movie gained popularity after Pawan Kalyan presented the teaser, and it was eventually released today, August 26, 2022. Without further ado, let’s dive into the review to see if the movie is worth seeing.
Unable to locate a producer, a man who wants to make movies meets one who agrees to finance his project on the condition that it be filmed in the little hamlet of Kalapuram. After that, the plot takes an unexpected turn as the filmmaker becomes involved in a gambling case. The remainder of the narrative focuses on identifying the perpetrator.

While there are many well-known comic stars in Kalapuram, the plot of the movie is rather interesting because it mostly relates with individuals who struggle to make movies. However, other from that, the movie includes many other components that don’t particularly interest you.
Well, the movie begins intriguingly by showing the filmmaker’s struggles to find a producer, but later it shifts to a regular commercial zone as we see non-sinc comedy, unnecessary characters, all these nothing helps to the proceedings, the second half of the film engages you for a while when Satyam Rajesh starts making a film in Kalapuram village, but it also doesn’t engage for long, and the climax is predictable.
Jabaradast Apparao justifies his character, Chitram Seenu is adequate, and the rest of the actors performed admirably in accordance with the demands of the plot. Satyam Rajesh shines in his role and demonstrates his mettle with his performance.
Karuna Kumar develops an intriguing story, but he absolutely fails to bring it to life on a large screen; the screenplay should have been stronger; and he fails to capture the movie’s central feeling.
Technically speaking, Kalapuram is alright since Prasad G.K.’s visuals are mostly good, Manisharma’s background soundtrack saved the movie, and the rest of the technical departments did a nice job.
Finally, Kalapuram is a one-time viewing movie that you can try if you run out of other things to watch.
