Santhosh (Naga Shaurya) is attached to his Ammamma (Sumitra). But he got to distance from her due to family feud between his father Suman and brother in law Ravi Babu(Rao Ramesh). One fine day, Santosh gets a chance to visit Ammamma as decides to distribute the property. Santosh and Ammamma play tricks to sort out differences in the family.
Amammagarillu is a ages old family drama. Seetharamayya Gari Manavarallu to Shatamanam Bhavati, Telugu audience are used to watch such films coming every now and then. Screenplay is dull and lethargic hardly any lively moments, neither did the film have great emotional drama. First half moves at snail pace with forced comedy. Romantic chemistry between lead pair is terrible. Second half goes for a toss with pathetic sentimental scenes that burden audience, they would certainly weep having to bear with it.
Naga Shourya steals the show. His charming looks and subtle performance is the only grace of the film. Shakalaka Shankar brings in some laughs. Shamili is decent as a tomboying girl. Posani also tickles a bit. Rao Ramesh and Suman are apt for their roles.
The film’s outdated storyline and lackluster screenplay is big let down. Direction is amateurish. Some dialogues and comedy works in bits and pieces. Music is average, no song will be carried. Cinematography too is average. Over all, Ammammagarillu is a 1990s fashioned film that may not appeal to any section of audience in this generation.
Bottom-line: Ammammagarillu bores to the core.
