: A silver screen adaptation of the popular sitcom Amrutham, the film does manage to surprise you.
: When was the last time a popular Telugu TV show was made into a movie? We're not sure but Amrutham Chandamamlo is definitely one of the very few films that fall into that category. A silver screen adaptation of the popular sitcom Amrutham, the film does manage to surprise you.
The filmmaker takes the elements from the serial and turned it into a space comedy while still retaining the simple humor that the serial was famous for. Also, it's not very often that we get a Telugu film that is targeted at the kids, yet the filmmaker does a remarkable job of not turning it into an overtly childish as such films generally end up being a little too juvenile.
Lead actors Srinivas Avasarala and Harish comfortably slip into the characters of the goofy best buddies, Amrutham and Anji popularised by Harshvardhan and Gundu Hanumantha Rao. Both Harish and Srinivas are spot on with their comic timing and compliment each other. The filmmaker has infused the plot with some skill fully constructed episodes in outer space, while still managing to retain the innocence in the humor. The lead actors are always end up finding themselves is believable stupid situations right through the movie. It all comes together pretty well aided by a pleasant background score.
The visual effects although not exactly seamless, create a reasonably believable visual ambience in keeping with light hearted theme of the movie. After a reasonably engaging first half, things begin to a little too gimmicky in the second half as the filmmaker goes overboard with some unnecessary comic indulgences which back fire.
