Abbayitho Ammayi Review, What’s Behind: Young and cute looking Naga Shaurya is in dire need of a strong hit after the colossal failure ‘Jaadoogadu.’ He teamed up with director Ramesh Varma introducing new girl Palak Lalwani as heroine and Musical Maestro Ilayaraja composed music. Let us see, how romantic is the film in ‘Abbayitho Ammayi’ review?
Abbayitho Ammayi Story: The plot clearly deals with present generation youth mindsets and how important social networking sites have become in their daily lives. Abhi (Naga Shaurya), the go lucky young guy leading a fun filled life is Facebook addict. With false identity of Pawan Kalyan, he flirt girls and Samanta comes as his right online partner sharing similar ideas. In real life, Abhi falls in love with Prardhana (Palal Lalwani) and both of them reciprocate in no time. Call it fatal age related sexual attraction, they get intimate one night which is ultimately exposed before both the families leading to separation. Upset with personal life incidents, Abhi and Prardhana decide to move on in life but remain sincere to their online partners. How are the virtual life Samanta and Pawan Kalyan connected to real life Abhi and Prardhana takes the remaining portion with loads of melodrama added…
Abbayitho Ammayi Artists and Technicians: The intelligent knack of picking central story element linked to crazy youth following on Facebook is an instant connect with target audience. However, Ramesh Varma is relaxed just with core and paid no proper attention in meshing the drama, fun, pain, realization and all those elements needed for a film to be rounded on the same point. His outdated treatment proved to be detrimental missing in minimal logics. A boy and girl talking on phone for days failing to identify the voice culture is totally a wrong conceptualization. Such innumerable blunders are thrown at our face ruthlessly. Overstretched screenplay meanders at dead slow pace in both the halves. Direction wise too, Ramesh Varma never looked convincing in what he really wanna convey. Such was the level of very bad writing standards and dialogues too never kept the narration afloat. Thanks to hands on production budget supplied as Sam K Naidu effortlessly showed every frame in a splendid manner. Apparently, the excellent camera work lost its significance with weak editing from SR Sekkhar. Sorry to say, Ilayaraja’s songs also appeared misplaced only to provide more agony for viewers. Production values of Vandana Alekhya and team are top notch which is the basic reason why audiences glue to their seats.
On to performances, Naga Shaurya yet again showed the immaculate ease in identifying the contemporary youth through his role. He is tremendous both in romantic first half and emotionally charged second half drama. All in all, Shaurya tried to remain on top with a lackluster script with uneven characters. Palak Lalwani is cool looks wise and gave a dominating portrayal in a matured way. Hard to say, this is her debut flick. To the supporting cast, Mohan made a comeback in adding depth to a shallow storyline. Rao Ramesh is lame with improper change in characteristic shade. Thulasi, Pragathi were fine. Rest may not need a big mention.
Abbayitho Ammayi Rating Analysis: This movie can be a perfect case study on how a well worked out story point can go absolutely disarray with foolish screenplay and doddering direction. Right from the take-off, Ramesh Varma was never into his regular basics. All the Facebook scenes need upright trimming to let audience relax from boring narration. Youthful movies should have inherently added comic value but Ramesh Varma never understood this simple requirement. By the time first half comes to a closure, interval block is sure to block many of our brains.
Into the second half, a changed hero getting back to heroine with several time-tested tricks saving her father and then getting close to family are a severe headache. God knows, how a heroine’s father becomes so buffoon before hero’s charm. Even the pre climax and climax rushed on with two years later freedom taken by director further dilutes the dead flavor.
Abbayitho Ammayi never stood sincere to its point and characters. Instead, it imparts boredom and routine outdated treatment to play the havoc with audience senses. This can be a safe escape from Box Office and audience can skip it without any doubts. Cinejosh rates the film with 2.25 stars just for pleasing visuals and nothing more.
