Siva Manasulo Sruthi (abbreviated as SMS) is a 2012 Indian Telugu-language romantic comedy film which is a remake of the successful 2009 Tamil film Siva Manasula Sakthi directed by M. Rajesh. The film is directed by Tatineni Satya and produced by Vikram Raju under Vega Entertainment. It stars Sudheer Babu and Regina Cassandra (in her Telugu debut).
Siva is a carefree young man who works in a courier company as a delivery boy. During a train journey, he comes across Sruthi, who works as a radio jockey. Siva instantly falls for Sruthi and he starts trying to impress her. Sruthi reluctantly starts reciprocating his love over time. But just as Sruthi is about to express her love, Siva breaks her heart with his careless nature and uncultured ways. A love-hate relationship begins as the story moves back and forth between love failure and success. Jealousy, possessiveness and anger rear their ugly heads. Towards the end, the movie takes an unexpected twist. Siva and Sruthi are forced to take a stand over their future. What they will do forms the story.
