Nandini Reddy is back with yet another film titled Anni Manchi Sakunamule. The film which has a feast of actors doing key roles has been released today. Read our review to find out if the film has any juice in it or not.
Anni Manchi Sakunamule Review
Anni Manchi Sakunamule is set between two big families headed by Prasad(Rajendra Prasad) and Sudhakar(Naresh). Rishi(Santosh Soban) and Arya(Malavika Nair) are both kids of respective families. They develop love but due to the past difference between the families related to the ancestral coffee estate creates a massive rift. Well, how these kids suffer in all these issues and win their love is the story of the film.
The film is filled with seasoned artists. Rajendra Prasad and Naresh play their roles perfectly. Their presence brings a lot of depth to the proceedings. Santosh Soban gets a key role and he impresses. He looks a bit lost in the crowd in the first half but makes up for it in the second. Malavika Nair gets a unique role of a strong girl and impresses. But her hairstyle and dialogue delivery look weird initially. Rao Ramesh, Urvashi, and Sowkar Janaki, all have been placed in good roles and they emote quite well.
Feel good moments
Anni Manchi Sakunamule is director Nandini Reddy’s latest film which is a family drama. The film is set between two families and has a very old-school storyline. But the special aspect of the film is the narration by Nandini Reddy. She gives the film a new look with great visuals and new-age storytelling which is good for the most part.
One of the biggest disadvantages of the film is the slow pace. The situations take forever to get into the actual mode. The first half has some breezy moments but to enjoy them one needs to wait for long. The interval bang is nice and brings a relatability factor into the setting. What makes this ordinary story a welcome change to see is the solid supporting cast.
Swapna Cinema has made sure that the routine story is forgotten with beautiful visuals. The rich taking and solid visuals make up for all the de-merits. But the film is also not that emotional. There are a few scenes that make you teary-eyed but all these have been seen in so many films already. The music by Mickey J Meyer is solid and the editing is bad. At least, ten minutes should have been chopped off.
Finally, Anni Manchi Sakunamule is a simple family drama that is narrated in a new-age manner. There is nothing new this film showcases and all the scenes are predictable. All those who like family dramas with a good star cast and great music can give this film a shot. But lower your expectations.
