The movie runs slowly in detail without any hungama. Singeetam has the ability to create good entertainment. But he has not concentrated on that and just told the story in all it’s originality. There are no double meaning dialogues, special songs and other commercial attractions in this movie. It’s just a sincere and simple film depicting a heart touching story.
Rating: 2.0/5
Definitely this is not the best of works from Singeetham. However, it is not a bad movie either. The movie deals with a novel concept like surrogacy and invitro fertilization. Through it, Singeetham managed to portray the value of human emotions and sentiment. But the slow pace of the movie and the lack of entertainment will not appeal to the people who view cinema only as entertainment.
Rating: 2.0/5
Credit must be given to Singeetam Srinivas Rao who extracted good performance from small boy (Estaben) who doesn't even know english. Singeetam communicated with his dad who is well versed in French and English. Though he planned to highlight the concept of surrogacy, it turned out to be old wine in new bottle. Many films came in Tollywood earlier.
Rating: 2.0/5
The main let down however had been the casting of the blond kid around whom the story revolves. I know it can be pretty hard to find a blond kid who is a good enough actor to convince us that he was born and brought up in an Indian village, but his super awkward performance coupled with bad dubbing pulls you right out of the argument.
Rating: 1.75/5
Singeetam goes to old generation of directors. Regardless of growing age he's been making movies with equally growing passion. He stays to old-style of film making narrating every scene at length. Singeetam has been doing exactly the same even just in Welcome Obama movie. 'Welcome Obama' is not up to the mark. It is completely slow paced movie. It is just one time watch movie.
Rating: 1.5/5
Legends rarely succeed when they come out of retirement for a second innings. They just end up tarnishing their legacy. Michael Schumacher is a good example for that. Someone like Mr. Singeetham Srinivasa Rao should have never attempted a project like this. ‘Welcome Obama’ is a sad and sorry film, with nothing in it for viewers.
Rating: 1.0/5
Not all novel ideas have a desirable impact on the viewer, as Welcome Obama proves beyond doubt. Welcome Obama is flat, drab and flimsy melodrama almost seems like a survival test that shows no signs of ending. It's really pitiful, since the Singeetham Srinnivas film doesn’t have any promising ideas that sound interesting in isolation. Their jointure on screen however is ten percent as effective as you would expect them to be.
Rating: 1.0/5
Watch the movie only if you are a hardcore fan of Singeetham Srinivasa Rao. Other wise it’s better to avoid this movie for the sake of your health and money.
Rating: 1.0/5
Singeetham Srinivasa Rao should have never attempted a project like this. Audience would have felt that ‘Welcome Obama’ is outdated even if it were released a decade ago. It is a case of ‘good story wasted by a bad direction and weak screenplay’. Watch it at your own risk.

The director has chosen brand new theme, which has not been brought to the screens so far in Tollywood. Set in the backdrop of the banks of Godavari river, the film revolves around the concept of surrogacy. Singeetham have weaved a beautiful story, but he has forgotten the masala elements like comedy. There is a comedy track, but that also fails to evoke laughter. The movie runs on a slow pace, which bores the audience.

This story comes without the commercial trappings of an escapist mainstream film. The setting is rustic (shot in film as opposed to digital); in a village in Andhra Pradesh, a young mother Yashoda (Urmila Kanetkar) agrees to be a surrogate mother to a wealthy American, Lucy (Rachel).
