Anni Manchi Sakunamule Movie Review
Anni Manchi Sakunamule Movie Review
Telugu360 Rating 2.5/5
Set in hill station Victoria Puram, Prasad (Rajendra Prasad) and Divakar (Rao Ramesh) families are in a decades old court battle over forefathers’ coffee estates. Divakar’s brother Sudhakar is played by Naresh. Rishi (Santosh Sobhan) and Arya (Malvika Nair) are born to Prasad, Sudhakar families respectively. Due to hospital staff mistake, the newborn babies interchange and grow up with different parents. Arya grows up as an independent lady with business acumen, Rishi is a street-smart guy, and they are friends with each other. Rishi tries his way to bring back the lost estate to his father.
‘ Anni Manchi Sakunamule ‘ takes off in an interesting manner but by the interval time it becomes a tedious watch with its slow paced narration and too many characters. The best elements are reserved for the second half. The coffee estates backdrop to the story, hill-station locations and authentic conversations written for upscale families etc. points make this film stand out among the routine dramas. Director Nandini reddy is known for sensible scenes delivered few such in this film as well but the court case feud between the two families isn’t enough to run the film. On other note, Rishi Arya friendship cum love track could have been better. The excessive screen time given to senior actors would have been transferred to the young pair ‘s love moments as such.
Santosh and Malvika, Rao Ramesh, Gauthami, Rajendra Prasad, and Naresh are the strength of the film.. Characters played by Vasuki, Ashwin, Vennela Kishore and Urvashi are brief. Micky J Meyer’s music supports the film, Cinematography by Sunny Kurapati and Richard prasad is very good. Swapna Cinemas production values are outstanding.
Santosh and Malvika Performance
Superb production values
Character artists casting
Very slow-paced narration
Weak conflict points.
A class film with few feel-good moments, few lighter moments, homely conversations, melodious songs, solid production values and good performances. All these positives are pretty much undone with ultra slow-paced narration, lack of story, and wasted first half. This film might appeal to a very limited section of the audience. Overall, a potential poignant tale is missed.

Santosh Sobhan’s Anni Manchi Sakunamule directed by Nandini Reddy is releasing on May 18th. The trailer released the other day promises a breezy entertainer which will be a treat for the complete family this summer. Hero Santosh interacted with media about the film.
Santosh is very excited about the film. “It was Priyanka Dutt who gave me my first advance cheque in 2018. After a gap of 5 years after the film Paperboy, I thought the right story came at the right time. That’s how this movie started. It is a film like Fam-Com (family comedy). Nandini Reddy will make you laugh and cry in the original way. The original strength of this movie is drama, emotions and scenes that will be very new,” he said.
He also says his good times will begin with this movie. “I think I did not get a chance to be a part of such a story or a combination of so many actors in my career. This is the biggest story of my career and a must watch movie on the silver screen. I felt that feeling while making the film. When I heard the title of this movie, I thought it was a very honest movie. Recently I watched this movie without the background score. It felt so easy and comfortable after coming out. That’s a good omen (Sakunam) for me,” he said.
Santosh Sobhan and Malvika Nair paired up for the upcoming flick Anni Manchi Sakunamule directed by Nandini Reddy under the banner of Swapna Cinema. The makers unveiled the theatrical trailer. Young Tiger NTR launched it.
The trailer introduces all the prominent characters and the conflicting point. A guy who is very optimistic in life though he is a big failure falls in love with a girl. There are no good terms between the two families. How they get approval from their family members for the wedding forms the crux of the story.
The trailer brings smiles at smiles and makes us emotional at other times, thanks to Nandini Reddy for her meaningful writing and impressive story-telling. Santosh Sobhan and Malvika Nair played their characters in a way that we remember them with their character names, after the release.
Sunny Kurapati’s blocks and Mickey J Meyer’s background score are other big assets. This is going to be the ideal choice for the family audience in the summer. The film is set to hit the screens on May 18th.
While Anni Manchi Sakunamale film glimpses and songs are impressive, the movie team punctuality is testing journalists’ patience.

Malavika Nair and Nandini Reddy repeated the same stream of statements and expressed their pleasure in working with Sowcar Janaki. Journalists asked the director to talk about something different rather than repeating the same and wasting their time.
Nandini Reddy has no option left rather than to come up with an explanation for their delay. She explained the journalists that they reached the location a while ago and they rushed to the press interaction after having lunch. She requested them to do some homework like reading and watching some sort of content related to the movie so that they could ask relevant questions and save time.
