Director Srinivas Avasarala’s much-awaited third film, Phalana Abbayi Phalana Ammayi has been released today. The movie features Naga Shaurya and Malavika Nair in the lead roles and is a romantic entertainer. The film is the third collaboration between Shaurya and Avasarala, and there have been several expectations on the film as a result. Let us see how it has turned out to be.

Story:

Phalana Abbayi Phalana Ammayi is about Sanjay and Anupama, two individuals who fall in love with each other and go through a long journey of love, fights, and lots more. There are several stages of their love story, which are unfolded to us. What happens in these stages and what happens, in the end, forms the whole story.

On-Screen Performances:

Naga Shaurya is in his comfort zone with Phalana Abbayi Phalana Ammayi. He is good in whatever he does and gives a good performance. However, in certain scenes, it feels as though he leaves the audience wanting more from him, while he excels in some other scenes. On the whole, Naga Shaurya is a hit and a miss when it comes to his performance in the film. Coming to the way he transformed himself for the various age groups that he was seen in, the actor’s efforts are very much commendable, and he has done an extraordinary job.

Malavika Nair has probably given the best performance of her career in the film. She has lived the character and emoted through every single emotion and scene perfectly, understanding the character she’s playing completely. Her performance is truly an asset to the film.

The chemistry between the lead pair is good and commendable, and will make you invested in some scenes very well.

There aren’t many other supporting actors that truly stand out in the film, as it is mostly focused on Shaurya and Malavika’s characters. However, the director, Srinivas Avasarala, is seen in the second half of the film, and he does his job decently. The rest of the supporting cast is also good enough.

Off Screen Talents:

Director Srinivas Avasarala has come up with a story that gives us an insight into the basic life of two individuals and the romantic hassles that they face. That’s not a particularly new concept, but the way the director has decided to showcase this story – in a slice-of-life manner – is what is interesting. Some scenes are particularly good, coupled with Srinivas’s trademarks dialogues. However, in certain parts in the first and second half as well, there’s a lot of lag in the proceedings, which might result in a boring feeling to the audience. Some scenes and transitions also do not have a lot of emotional depth to them, which might feel very emotionally disconnected. Apart from that, the movie is okay. The climax portion of the film also feels very rushed and like it hasn’t been given a proper justification.

The background music by Kalyani Malik is good enough, and the songs are pleasant to hear. They all complement the film in a decent manner but do not particularly stand out.

The cinematography is good, and perfectly fits the setting of the movie. The editing is good but could have been a lot better, especially in places where there is a lot of lag.

Plus Points:

  • Malavika performance
  • A few key scenes between the pair

Minus Points:

  • Lack of emotional depth
  • Lag in certain scenes
  • Rushed climax

Verdict: Phalana Abbayi Phalana Ammayi is a movie that might appeal to those who love romantic entertainers that take their own time to be set up. Otherwise, it might feel like a slow movie that you get bored in.
