S. Narayana. Director: Trivikram Expectations are bound to coil up for the works of Trivikram. Such is his reputation. Certainly, it blows a kiss of curse in the case of 'S/O Satyamurthy'.

Trailer review: 'S/o Satyamurthy' looks like a typical Trivikram film The first odd thing about the audio release of Trivikram's 'S/o Satyamurthy' is that not a word was spoken about M. S. Narayana.

The tagline - Viluvale aasthi - wasn't reflected at the...
