Plot[edit]

Valmiki and Ramachandra start their career as clerks in the company of Ananth "ARK" Ramakrishna. Ramachandra, who marries ARK's daughter Yasoda "Yasu", becomes wealthy while Valmiki remains poor. On the day of the birth of both their children, Ramachandra's son appears to be dead. When nurse Sulochana informs Valmiki about this, he pities Ramachandra and Yasu and offers to exchange his baby with the dead one. After switching them, however, the apparently dead child begins to cry. Sulochana tries to switch them back but Valmiki senses an opportunity that his son would have a better life growing up in a rich family. He prevents her from switching, pushing her accidentally off a ledge. Sulochana goes into a coma, while Valmiki gets a leg cramp that makes him limp permanently. The two boys grow-up in different ways. Raj, raised at Ramachandra's house, is timid, innocent, and soft-spoken, while Bantu, who is raised at Valmiki's house, is smart, outspoken, and hard-working. Valmiki, who favours Raj, treats Bantu with disgust due to his true parentage.

After his MBA was denied by Valmiki, Bantu heads to an interview for a job at a travel company headed by Amulya "Ammu", a self-made businesswoman. After a scuffle and misunderstanding with the company's HR manager Shekhar, Bantu gets the job. Eventually, Bantu develops feelings for Ammu. Bantu, Ammu, Shekhar, and Ravindra Reddy go to Paris for a business trip, and shortly after the trip, Bantu and Ammu fall in love with each other. Meanwhile, Raj returns from abroad, discontinuing his MBA.

Ramachandra sends Raj to reject Paidithalli, the son of Appala Naidu, a wealthy, powerful and influential man who offers to buy 50% of their company's shares. Ramachandra watches the deal from the hotel where Ammu and Bantu have a meeting with Sudharshanam, the Investor behind Ammu's firm, who wants to buyback Ammu's travel agency. Ramachandra is disappointed by Raj's hesitance and inability to say no to Paidithalli but is proud of Bantu and Ammu for saying no to Sudharshanam. Following this, Raj is engaged with Ammu on ARK's suggestion, even though Raj is already in love with his cousin Nandini "Nandu".

When Ammu reveals her feelings for Bantu, he convinces her to ask Ramachandra to call-off her marriage with Raj. Naidu attempts to kill Ramachandra for refusing to sell the shares moments before Ammu and Bantu arrive. Bantu saves Ramachandra by taking him to the hospital despite several attempts by Naidu's men to stop them. There he meets Sulochana, who comes out of her coma and reveals Bantu's true parentage. The furious Bantu slaps Valmiki, telling him that he learned the secret about his birth. Bantu then manages to enter Ramachandra's house, named "Vaikuntapuram." ARK is fond of Bantu for saving Ramachandra. Bantu begins to address the issues plaguing the house by patching up Ramachandra's broken relationship with Yasu (which was fragile, as Ramachandra had an affair once with a woman 7 years ago), settling the dispute with Paidathalli, and reforming the corrupt family members, Kashiram and Sitaram.

Later ARK names Bantu as enforcer and giving him right to decide shareholders which helps thwart Paidithalli's advances towards the company. At a party thrown at their house, Yasu witnesses Bantu and Ammu kissing each other. Bantu is ousted out of the house by Valmiki while Ammu's engagement with Raj is cancelled. Naidu uses the situation to his advantage by kidnapping and threatening to kill Nandu unless Ramachandra gives away the shares to Paidithalli. When Valmiki begs Bantu to save Nandu, he refuses but goes anyway. He thrashes the goons, slams Paidathalli, and stabs Naidu in the chest. Later, Raj saves Naidu, thus ending his enmity with Ramachandra.

When Bantu and Valmiki arrive at Vaikuntapuram, ARK slaps Valmiki and reveals that he overheard the conversation between Sulochana and Bantu right before her death. Bantu unites with his biological father, Ramachandra but asks him not to reveal the truth to Yasu, fearing she might be disheartened to know that Raj is not her real child. Unaware of this, Yasu remarks that Bantu is equal to Raj as he saved Nandu and the family, thereby giving Bantu 50% of its shares.

Yasu then asks Valmiki to train Raj for five years to be as competent as Bantu and become the CEO. After arriving at Valmiki's house, Raj, however, feels that Valmiki, with a nurse's help, should have switched the babies 25 years ago so he could've ended up at Valmiki's house and Bantu at Ramachandra's, much to the dismay of Valmiki. Meanwhile, Bantu heads to his new office as the CEO with Ammu in a helicopter, making Valmiki jealous.

Reception[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

The film received mostly positive reviews especially for the performance of Allu Arjun, musical score, script and screenplay, while the predictable storyline and the narrative of the film were criticised. Hemanth Kumar of Firstpost gave the film 3.25 stars out of 5 and wrote "Ala Vaikunthapurramloo is both entertaining and engaging to a good extent, however, it takes plenty of time before it finds its groove. One could argue a lot about how the pace of the film could have been and if there was a better way to make a bunch of characters be more relevant to the story, but when Trivikram finishes telling the story, he leaves you with a pleasant feeling."[91] A review posted by Rohit Mohan on Koimoi said the film to be "a perfect family entertainer to watch on this festive season of [Sankranti] with your near and dear ones, not only for Allu Arjun fans but also for every movie lovers." He gave the film three and a half stars out of five.[92]

Neeshita Nyayapati of The Times of India gave the film 3.5 stars out of 5 stating "Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo has a bit of everything and despite the cliché and the predictable storyline. Trivikram manages to make it work and deliver what he promises. Watch this for Allu Arjun, especially if you're a fan, for he shines in this one and of course, the fun of it all."[93] Karthik Keramalu of The Quint stated "Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo has a lot going for it because Bantu (the weirdest name for a Telugu movie hero) spends time with other characters (played by Tabu, Jayaram, Sunil, Sachin Khedekar, Vennela Kishore, Rajendra Prasad, Rahul Ramakrishna, Nivetha Pethuraj etc...) and doesn't wallow in mediocrity for a long time. And P. S., Vinod's cinematography makes each frame in the action episodes appear as avant-garde paintings. And on top of it all, the songs are an absolute treat, which makes it as an entertainer that promises fun"[94]

Bhavana Sharma of International Business Times stated "Living up to the expectations of the audiences and showing Trivikram's mark everywhere, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo rings in the celebrations of the Sankranti festival and proves that the film was worth the wait."[95] Sangeetha Devi Dundoo of The Hindu called the film "an absorbing and entertaining drama presented by Trivikram – Allu Arjun duo".[96] Manoj Kumar R of The Indian Express gave 3 out of 5 and stated "The main pleasures of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo are not unravelling of the secrets that the characters are determined to carry to their graves. It is Trivikram's writing and his intention to tell a story and entertain the audience without any rush."[97] Sankeerthana Verma of Film Companion reviewed "Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo is far from being perfect cinema. There are many flaws and the film takes many artistic liberties to move the story forward, but so does every other masala entertainer. But this one manages to entertain you. This one does. If a good Sankranti film is all about having a laugh and some harmless fun without having to sell your soul, this is definitely the one to go with."[98]

Janani K of India Today, gave 3 out of 5 stars and stating "Ala Vaikuntapuramloo is not a film that experiments. It ends up as a film that knows its flaws but packages it cleverly so that it does not weigh down on the overall experience."[99] Karthik Kumar of Hindustan Times wrote "Ala Vaikuntapuramlo is undoubtedly one of Trivikram’s better films in recent years. While one can argue that he plays it safe by taking the tried-and-tested family template, at least he doesn’t disappoint and that is laudable."[100] Sify gave 3 out of 5 for the film stating "Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo is a well-packaged entertaining movie that has several positive points. It is a feel-good family entertainer. Despite many issues and some cliched sequences, it makes an entertaining watch during this festive period."[101] Behindwoods rated 3 out of 5 and summarised "Allu Arjun and Trivikram Srinivas deliver a feast with Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, a fun commercial entertainer."[102] Indiaglitz gave 3.25 out of 5 and stated "'Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo' is a thorough entertainer that offers loads of fun. Without getting melodramatic, it makes you root for its layered sentimentality."[103]
