With films like “Ashta Chemma”, “Golconda High School” and “Gentleman”, director Mohana Krishna Indraganti created a niche for himself. His films are much-looked forward to by film lovers.
Unlike his regular serious style, he has attempted comedy in “Ami Thumi”. Has he succeeded at this attempt? Let’s find out.
Deepika (Eesha)’s father arranges an alliance for her with Sri Chilipi (Vennela Kishore) much against her wishes. She is locked in her room, as she is adamant of marrying her boyfriend Ananth (Adivi Sesh). Her maid gives her an idea. So, they change their places.
The maid now moves into the room and Deepika runs away from home in the attire of maid. Sri Chilipi comes from Vizag to see Deepika and then comedy from mistaken identity begins.
The movie primarily depends on the actors than the story. The director has created such situations that would only work if the actors elevate them. More importantly, this film is one-man show.
Vennela Kishore is a comedian in the film but he actually has got more footage and importance than the lead actors Avasarala and Adivi Sesh.
Vennela Kishore kills it with his terrific performance. He has saved this movie many times.
Among other actors, Adivi Sesh and Avasarala are okay. Eesha is good but newcomer Aditi is irritating. The actress who has played the role of maid is also good.
This kind of movies doesn’t boast technical glitz. The film has only two songs – “Ayyo Baaboyi” and “Takadhamithana”. Both are just okay numbers.
Cinematography by P G Vinda is adequate enough for the theme. Production values are neat.
