Director Nandini Reddy teamed up with Santosh Sobhan for her latest film, Anni Manchi Sakunamule, which has been carrying decent expectations on it. The film has been released today, and let’s see how it has turned out to be
Arya and Rishi are exchanged by mistake at birth, by the doctors, between to warring families that have been in dispute over the shared properties of their forefathers. As Arya and Rishi grow up, the dispute between the families increases. The rest of the story is about how this dispute gets resolved, and if the families get to know of the exchange of Rishi and Arya at birth.
Santosh Sobhan’s character is a happy go lucky guy, something that the actor has been doing for most of his career. However, he brings a new dimension to that in this film, and his performance has also improved vastly when compared to his previous films.
Malavika Nair is good in her role as well and complements Santosh Sobhan well enough.
The main pillars of AMS is the supporting cast, which consists of seasoned actors like Rajendra Prasad, Rao Ramesh, Naresh, Gautami, and several others, who excel at what they do, and every time they come on screen, it is splendid to watch them.
Director Nandini Reddy is known for her feel-good movies, and she attempts to give such an experience through AMS as well. However, she lacks in execution, as the screenplay and the pacing are very slow and snail-paced, which gets one exasperated. With the exception of a few emotional scenes and comedy scenes, the rest of the film feels very boring and makes the viewer lose interest.
The background music and the songs by Mickey J Meyer are also very subpar, which doesn’t help the film. Had there been at least one or two memorable songs from the film, that would have greatly helped the film.
The cinematography and production values of the film are top-notch, and it reflects in every scene. The editing could have been a lot better.
- Cast and performance
- Emotional scenes
- Few good comedy scenes
- Slow narration
- Boring at times
- Sub par music
Verdict: AMS is a snail-paced urbane family drama with a couple of emotional scenes and few good comedy scenes, thats about it..overall movie is pretty average and will appeal to only limited section of the audience. Others may watch it on OTT
