Vennela Kishore’s Show
‘U’ Certified, 2 hrs 05 mins
What is the film about?
Ami Tumi is a simple movie about a comedy of errors involving a marriage of Sri Chilipi (Vennela Kishore) with Deepika (Eesha Rebba).
How is Adivi Sesh’s performance?
Adavi Sesh is not the real lead in the movie. He is more of a supporting actor. He has done his part well, but nothing stands out or is memorable.
Direction By Mohan Krishna?
Films like Ami Tumi are very hard to pull off. It requires a set of brilliant actors at their very best and writing at the sharpest. The director has got decent actors but it is the writing which is good, and it makes the acting manageable.
The story of the film is very simple, and it all happens in one day between a finite set of characters. It is a comedy of errors, and the director is clear with what he wants. The clarity helps in making the movie progress neatly whether or not the writing and acting are working. With Ami Thumi, he has got the best in comedy with Vennela Kishore. He single-handedly lifts the proceedings with his comic timing and antics. The movie is better whenever he is present and looks dull or overacted when the others take over.
The movie is very small in length, so the first half and second half, like things don’t come into much prominence. Still, the second half drags a bit and the climax, while predictable feels like a letdown. Overall if one doesn’t mind the over the top nature of the comedy or movies in that style, they can easily watch the film once, others can just skip the movie. To those who want some variety and don’t mind the over action, there is plenty of fun on offer with a stellar act by Vennela Kishore.
Eesha Rebba and others?
Srinivas Avasarala is good in the supporting role. His Telangana accent brings out a freshness in his performance. The real hero of the movie without any doubt is Vennela Kishore. It is a one-man show by him. His presence takes the film a notch above always. Among the two heroines Eesha and Aditi, the former is better, performance and presence wise.
Music and other departments?
There are only two songs in the movie, and one among them comes at the very end. They are alright. The background is superb as usual by Mani Sharma. The cinematography is decent. Editing is fine. Dialogues are hilarious, and the Telangana accent makes it even funnier.
For the subject that has been chosen, it is executed neatly. Perhaps a better supporting cast who can over-act cinematically would have made things better.
Did I enjoy it?
Will you recommend it?
If one enjoys this sort of comedy, it’s a good one time watch. Otherwise, stay miles away.
