Anni Manchi Sakunamule movie review – Undercooked attempt
Cast: Santosh Sobhan, Malvika Nair
Director: B. V. Nandini Reddy
Producer: Priyanka Dutt
Music: Mickey J. Meyer
Santosh Sobhan and Malvika Nair have teamed up for the movie Anni Manchi Sakunamule. Nandini Reddy who is known for churning out feel-good entertainers has directed this flick. The film got released today. Let us check out the review.
Prasad (Rajendra Prasad) and Sudhakar (Naresh) have issues between them and it spreads to the respective families as well. They have an inheritance property issue. However, their kids Arya and Rishi don’t have any problems between themselves. The movie’s plot is all about how the families unite and what kind of role Arya and Rishi play in this regard.
We can see a huge improvement in Santosh Sobhan’s performance. He has that natural instinct in him which we can see in this movie. He is good overall. Malvika Nair is a good actor and we have seen her performing naturally in her movies. Anni Manchi Sakunamule is another movie in this category. Both the lead pair compliments themselves very well.
Rajendra Prasad, Rao Ramesh, Naresh, Gautami, and others will be seen in crucial roles in the movie. Vennela Kishore and Vasuki are just okay.
Mickey J Meyer who is once known for his melodies has composed music for this movie. However, he hasn’t created any impact. Even his background score hasn’t helped the film in any way. It is sad to see a talented technician giving an output like this. Sunny Kurrapati and Richard Prasad’s visuals are good. The production values are very good. The editing could have been a lot better though.
Coming to Nandini Reddy, the AMS concept is fine and it is her strong genre. However, this time the pacing is so slow that becomes unbearable at times. There are some bright moments in the film though.
Anni Manchi Sakunamule could have been a decent outcome if the pace of the film is addressed. Apart from a couple of emotional scenes and a light-hearted moments, AMS is slow and boring.
