Aadaallu Meeku Johaarlu Telugu Movie Review: AMJ starring Sharwanand and Rashmika Mandanna as the lead pair under the direction of Kishore Tirumala has hit the silver screens today. Let’s see how it fares.
Grown-up in a family atmosphere, Chiru(Sharwanand) meets Aadhya( Rashmika Mandanna) coincidentally and falls in love with her. But as a rude shock to him, Aadhya shocks him by saying that her life is completely under the control of her mother Vakula( Kushboo). How will Chiru manage to impress Aadhya’s mother Vakula to get her daughter’s love, forms the main USB of the film.
Sharwanand is okay with his screen presence and gave a convincing performance as a guy in desperation to get married. While his acting brings depth to the proceedings to an extent, his appearance and body language is the same as how we have been seeing him for the past few years.
Rashmika Mandanna gets a strong role as a lawyer but her role is not established in a proper manner. But her chemistry with Sharwa is also not presented in a decent way.
Senior artists like Radika, Kushboo, Urvashi, Jhansi, Satya are apt as family ladies. Other artists who played supporting roles are just okay with their acting.
Kishore Tirumala directs Aadavaallu Meeku Joharlu. His idea of exploring family emotions in a joint family by interlinking the proceedings with the love story between the lead pair is not a bad idea but his cliched presentation disappoints miserably.
The lack of proper character establishment scenes and outdated melodrama episodes are the main blender for the film. Adding to it, the way Kushboo’s character is designed suffers from poor scene order and abrupt presentation. If the team would have worked on the screenplay version at the scripting stage itself the result would have been much better.
Music by Devi Sri Prasad is a major disappointment for the film as his songs or background score do not register. His outdated template sounding and instruments disconnect with the audience’s mood.
The cinematography by Sujith Sarang is nice as he showcased the entire film with a colourful texture. Editing work by A Sreekar Prasad is not up to the mark.
Production values for this star-studded film are good and so is the case with the setup.
All in all, Aadavaallu Meeku Joharlu is a regular template family drama that lacks proper presentation and strong characterizations. If you are okay with a serial kind of family episodes, then AMJ is your pick or else ignore this overdramatic film.
