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.

While Anni Manchi Sakunamale film glimpses and songs are impressive, the movie team punctuality is testing journalists’ patience. Reputed production house Swapna Cinema is coming up with this romantic entertainer this summer titled Anni Manchi Sakunamale in Nandini Reddy’s direction starring Santosh Sobhan and Malavika Nair.
Recently, the movie team conducted a press meet in Tirupati as part of their film’s promotion and was late to the venue for more than 90 minutes, where the journalists lost their 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.
After delivering back-to-back blockbusters, Swapna Cinema is all set to enthrall us with yet another wholesome family entertainer Anni Manchi Sakunamule which is directed by Nandini Reddy with Santosh Sobhan and Malvika Nair playing the lead roles. The makers made an interesting announcement with a glimpse. Meet Rishi and Arya in Italy on 20th, reads the message. The third single Merise Mabbullo will be out on April 20th.
Coming to the glimpse, the refreshing video shows the love story of Rishi and Arya from their teenage. Rishi and Arya are of contrasting opinions about life and everything. But they love each other. Both shared wonderful chemistry. Mickey J Meyer’s BGM makes the visuals look much more beautiful.
The movie AMC produced by Priyanka Dutt is scheduled for release on May 18th.
Life is no bed of roses. Escapist entertainers don’t tell this truth about life. But ‘Kalyanam Kamaneeyam’, while being entertaining, seems to delve into the realities of middle-class lives. As the trailer says, this is the story of every wife, every husband, and every marriage.
Shiva (Santosh Shoban) mooched off his parents as a bachelor. After he fell in love with Shruti (Priya Bhavani Shankar) and got married, he continues to be jobless. When she insists that he start working, Shiva realizes that he has to take ownership of his life. Despite his flaws and rank irresponsible behaviour, he knows that he is answerable to his wife and his conscience.
If the trailer is anything to go by, debutant director Anil Kumar Aalla has set up the story of ‘Kalyanam Kamaneeyam’ in a relatable fashion.
The film also caters to the Sankranthi audience. The comic relief is added by characters played by Santosh Shoban as well as the likes of Saptagiri. Shravan Bharadwaj’s music and songs will hopefully add to the film’s entertainment value.
This Sankranthi release, co-starring Kedar Shankar, Devi Prasad, Pavitra Lokesh and others, is expected to add another hit to UV Concepts. UV Creations is all set to bring out the film in theatres on January 14.
Santosh Soban and Priya Bhavani Shankar starrer Kalyanam Kamaneeyam is headed for release on the 14th of January and the promotions are in full swing now.
The makers have now unveiled a new song from the album – Oh Manasa and it gives a dive into the love life of the lead pair while they are in the midst of their marriage.
The song depicts how Priya changed Santosh’s life for good and how they got married. Krishna Kant’s lyrics are very good and so is Shravan Bharadwaj’s composition. It has a melodious touch and will strike the viewers right in the first listening.
Shravan composes the song and also croons it. He has done a very impressive job. The visual presentation is also of top quality. The visuals in the lyrical video are aesthetic. The visuals have a rich feel.
This song perfectly sets the stage for the promotional campaign that is to follow and also the film which is set for release on 14 January, marking the occasion of Sankranthi. Anil Kumar Alla is directing the film while UV Concepts are producing it.

Manchi Rojulochaie review
Manchi Rojulochaie review
Telugu360 Rating: 2.25/5
Director Maruthi completed a quick film titled Manchi Rojulochaie after the second wave of coronavirus pandemic. Santosh Shoban and Mehreen played the lead roles in the film which is touted to be a comic entertainer that is inspired by the pandemic. UV Creations pooled out the funds for Manchi Rojulochaie. The film released today and here is the complete review of the film:
Manchi Rojulochaie is the story of Santhu (Santosh Shoban) and Paddu (Mehreen) who are in love. Paddu’s father Gopalam (Ajay Ghosh) has fears to the core in every aspect. His close friends Murthy and Koteswara Rao take this an advantage and creates much more fear pulling his leg. Gopalam is scared about his daughter Paddu falling in love with someone and he stages a hunt for the right guy to get her married. But unfortunately, he fails to find the right match for Paddu. The biggest shock comes for Gopalam in the form of his friend’s demise. The rest of Manchi Rojulochaie is all about his fears and how Santhu changes the mood of Gopalam and impresses him. Watch Manchi Rojulochaie to know about the complete story.
Maruthi’s stories are quite simple and he pens a script taking a small incident or an episode. Comedy is his strength and it has been the USP for most of his successful films. Manchi Rojulochaie is not the story of Santosh Shoban or Mehreen, it is the story of Ajay Ghosh and he takes the major screen presence. The entire film revolves around his role. Maruthi made the character actor’s role as the lead and penned the script. The audience will be left in shock as it did not work out for Manchi Rojulochaie. There are enough flaws in the script and Maruthi made a mistake right from the core plot to the writing and the narration.
The entire film revolves around the roles of Gopalam and his poking friends who are focused on sharing things about his daughter. Most of the episodes are disappointing as the comedy did not work out from these incidents. Single layered scripts are quite difficult to narrate and if the story is weak, things turn out quite ugly. Maruthi was focused and wrote huge dialogues which never worked out. Manchi Rojulochaie is a film that has too many dialogues and fewer emotions. Though he said that he was inspired by coronavirus, the discussion of the pandemic comes during the pre-climax episodes. All those scenes and episodes are a huge misfire.
There is Maruthi mark comedy at times in the film. Appadala Vijayalakshmi’s role is decent and the episode of the phone conversation is good. Maruthi who had hilarious interval episodes in his films failed with Manchi Rojulochaie. The film has impressive comic scenes at times and this is not enough to impress the audience. There are double-meaning dialogues during the first 20 minutes of the film.
Santosh Shoban has a boy next door looks and he did his part well. The audience should call him a lead actor as he has two songs with the heroine but coming to the screen presence and performance, Ajay Ghosh takes the lead. He got a full-length role for the first time in his career. He played well as a father who is in extreme fear. Mehreen lost huge weight and she looks glamorous in the role of Paddu. Vennela Kishore was ok with his role and Viva Harsha wasn’t utilized completely. Praveen and Sudharshan managed to generate enough smiles.
Manchi Rojulochaie has a lean plot as told. Maruthi’s magic did not work out in this film. His idea of directing a small film is appreciable but he picked a wrong idea and made it into a lifeless script. The visuals are good and both the songs are shot well. The cinematography work is good and the music is just ok. Maruthi’s thought of completing Manchi Rojulochaie on a minimal budget with quality output is successful but the film fails badly to impress the audience.
Manchi Rojulochaie is a huge misfire from Maruthi because of the poor narration and the lackluster comedy.
