Sukumar (Aadi) is a NRI working for a US company who gives much preference to money and is selfish by nature. To start his own firm, he needs hefty amount and at this point of time, he comes to know that his family who lives in a village has a property worth 150Crores. He immediately flies to the village on a plan to sell the property and invest in the bank to commence his dream project. He meets his grandmother Vandanamma (Sharada) uncle Rao Ramesh and falls in love with Sankari (Nisha Aggarwal). Will Sukumar succeed in his plan or changes his nature forms the rest of the story.
Aadi once again proves that he is a great dancer and he is good at action sequences but he needs to work on emotional scenes and comic timing.
Nisha Agarwal is beautiful especially in the songs, but her pairing with Aadi misses the mark in the film.
Super Star Krishna is brief but delivers a decent performance and actress Sharada is an asset for the movie. The film had many artists like MS Narayana, Raghu Babu, Dhanraj, Jaya Prakash Reddy, Thagubothu Ramesh but the comedy didn’t work much and they are wasted in poor roles.
Cinematography is fine while Anup Rubens musical scores are a decent. The background score is loud at times. Editing is pathetic with no consistency. Dialogues hardly impress. Ashok Kumar’s direction is bad and screenplay looked illogical. Production values are not upto the mark.
Director Ashok has come up with a routine story, it could have been quite different had the director incorporated gripping screenplay, instead it was terrible. Logic has gone for toss big time and the flow is inconsistent with few scenes appearing from nowhere. With too many supporting actors neither of them had interesting roles and poor writing clearly plays the spoilsport. Even the romantic scenes between the leads never worked and misplaced songs irritate even more. The interval twist is a bit interesting and makes the audiences look for some entertainment in store but the same predictable and too many melodrama scenes make the proceedings worse. The run length is almost 3 hours with none of the interesting scenes in the scenes, the viewers go restless. Besides very few scenes, Sukumarudu looked dull.
Routine story and poor executions makes Sukumarudu a painful watch!!!
