Anni Manchi Sakunamule Review and Rating: 2.5/5 – Cast: Santosh Sobhan – Malvika Nair – Director: Nandini Reddy – Producer: Priyanka Dutt
Santosh Sobhan is one of the youngest Tollywood heroes. He is doing movies back-to-back, irrespective of flops and hits. Santosh’s latest movie, Anni Manchi Sakunamule, released today with high expectations and is directed by Nandini Ready. Let’s go and check out Anni Manchi Sakunamule’s movie review and public talk.
Story: Arya (Santosh Sobhan) and Rishi (Malvika Nair) are mistakenly switched at birth by the doctors between warring families who have been fighting over their forefathers’ shared properties. The conflict between the family grows as Arya and Rishi grow older. The rest of the movie is around how this dispute is addressed and whether or not the families are aware of the exchange of Rishi and Arya at birth.
Positives: Lead pair performance – Emotional scenes – comedy scenes and sentiment
Negatives: Slow Narration – some boring scenes – Music
Verdict: A sincere attempt with a few good moments and solid writing in places This slice-of-life drama has great casting, production values, a background score, and DOP work.
The two halves have a few good emotional and comic moments but falter with the overall execution. The lengthy runtime and slow-paced narration add up to a negative.
Rajendra Prasad, Vasuki, Malavika Nair, and Santosh Soban are terrific in their roles. Mickey J. Meyer’s songs and score are decent.
Overall, A Family Entertainer that had its moments but falters with the overall execution. Anni Manchi Sakunamule is a decent film that could have been better and will appeal to only a limited section of the audience.
