The star cast of the film does contain some actors who are certainly capable of raising a few laughs. Vennela Kishore has been making waves in comic roles off late. Thanikella Bharani is a past master in tickling ribs. The film was well promoted in the last few days and hit the screens today. This is touted to be a complete romantic comedy.
Gangadhar Rao (Thanikella Bharani) is the strict father of two adult children – a son (Srinivas Avasarala) and daughter (Eesha). Both his children fall in love much against his wishes. His daughter is in love with Ananth (Adivi Sesh) while his son falls for his enemy’s daughter Maaya (Aditi). Piqued at his children’s disobedience Gangadhar locks up his daughter in the house and arranges marriage with Sreechilipi (Vennela Kishore). He deals with his son by evicting him from home. The rest of the story is all about how the brother and sister duo come together to outwit their father and marry the people of their choice.
The comedy that the main characters bring into the film is simply superb. Though the film starts a little slow – spending a long time in introducing the characters – it soon makes up for this. The director keeps the proceedings lively throughout with a excellent case of mistaken identity. There is an element of slapstick comedy which may not to be to the taste of today’s audiences but the proceedings are certainly kept lively. Though at times some of the comedy borders on the ridiculous, the climax was quite interesting.
Performance of the Stars:
Every single actor in the film has produced very good acting. Vennela Kishore has been going from strength to strength in rib tickling comedy roles. He has excelled himself in this film. Adavi Sesh and Avasarala Srinivas and Thanikella Bharani give us some rip roaring times. The ladies in the star cast – Aditi and Eesha also do a good job of their roles.
Dialogues by Mohana Krishna are a major highlight of the film as they keep the audiences laughing right through to the end. Mani Sharma’s music – for the songs and the background score – is good. Since there were not many outdoor locations the cinematographer had to shoot within the constraints of the set and managed to produce a good output. No complaints with the production values. The director has managed to extract the best of his team – both acting and technical. Without using too many characters he conveys the chosen story using a lot of comedy. He ought to be complemented on his choice of star cast.
The Final Word:
“Ami Thumi” is a good family entertainer that keeps you laughing right through.
