The movie deals with a mental ache for a mother and her son. A happy-go-lucky youngster who enjoys life who faces eventual death due to a rare illness. The director however, strays from the pivotal issue to describe the lead actor(Venky’s) relation with his surroundings hat comprises of his doctor, nurse, sister and sweetheart. The film spends almost the entire first half on building the plot which can be considered as an unnecessary drag. Salaam Venky Movie Review, as per critics, compensate this slowness in the first half with an equally engaging melodrama throughout the rest of the movie. However, as Venky finally convinces his mother to file a petition for euthanasia, the ball starts rolling. This is where the nobility of the cause gets the audience to connect their heart with the story and its characters. The movie introduces more characters with the journalist (Ahana Kumra) covering the event and the judge (Prakash Raj) as the presiding judge for the case.

In a nutshell, a must watch movie that touches the deepest chords of human emotions.
