Aa Ammayi Gurinchi Meku Chappali starring Sudheer Babu and Kirthi Shetty as the lead pair under the direction of Indraganti Mohanakrishna is out for public viewing today. Let’s see how it fares.
Story: A successful film director named Naveen( Sudheer Babu) comes across a beautiful girl Alekhya ( Krithi Shetty) who happens to be an eye doctor by profession. Later, Naveen approaches Dr Alekhya with a proposal to act in his next female-centric film. Though Alekhya refuses to act initially, after repeated trials by Naveen she will be say yes to act with one condition. What is Alekhya’s condition? How will Naveen convince Alekhya to act in the movies? What is the key twist in Alekhya’s character, forms the crucial crux.
Performances: Sudheer Babu is okay in his role as a film director. Except for one emotional scene in the second half, there is nothing much to say about his acting.
Undoubtedly, heroine Krithi Shetty is major plus for the film. Her acting in all emotional scenes carry the mood of the film. In close-up shots as well, Krithi did fine job with her facial expressions. Her screen presence adds weightage to the proceedings.
Vennela Kishore evokes good fun in his comic role as the hero’s assistant. His funny dialogues are enjoyable in the first half. Srinivas Avasarala, Rahul Ramakrishna are okay in their limited roles.
Technicalities: The cinematography by PG Vinda is good as he tried to present the entire film on a colourful note. The editing work by Marthand K Venkatesh is alright.
Music by Vivek Sagar is a backbone for the film. While all the songs are situational and passable on screen, the background score elevates the emotional content in the second half nicely.
Production design is nice. The production values for this tight budget movie are okay.
Analysis: AAGMC is the second film of director Indraganti Mohanakrishna based on cinema lives after the 2018 film, Sammohanam.
Mohanakrishna’s core theme that runs on a cinema director and an eye doctor is enough to make a soulful light-hearted drama but the director wasted too much time in the first half with a slow-paced narrative. If he would have worked more on the scene order in the first half, the result would have been unanimous.
To summerize, AAGMC is a cinematic drama that explores story between a film director and a female doctor. Though the first half runs on a flat note, the interval block followed by second half proceedings make the film a passable watch.
Verdict: Second half creates an impact!
