On screen performances:
Satya Rajesh impresses with his honest acting in the lead role. His acting as an aspiring director brings depth to the proceedings to an extent.
Chitram Seenu is okay with his performance in an extended cameo role.
Rest of the artists such as Sanchitha Poonacha, Kaashima Rafi, Praveen Yandamuri did their supporting roles decently.
Off screen talents:
Director Karuna Kumar idea of exploring the struggles in the film making is good but Kalapuram often remains us of Ram Gopal Varma’s film, Katha Screenplay Darsakatvam Appalaraju which also has a similar concept.
The editing work by SB Raju Talari is fine. The cinematography work is nice as the rural atmosphere captured well. Music department fails as none of the songs or the background score registers.
Production values for this low budget movie are okay. Production design work is fine.
- Satyam Rajesh’s performance to an extent
In an overview, Kalapuram is a low grade film winded up with no proper presentation and scene order. The cliched and unconvincing execution stall tall as a demerit for the movie.
