To make a film interesting it has to be enriched with all the required elements. Comedy is an important element in films. Comedy impresses audience to a great extent. But that doesn’t mean a film will click if it’s completely filled with comedy. We get the same feeling after watching Sukumarudu. Aadi came up with Sukumarudu to score a hat trick.
Sukumarudu’s basic line is same as Greekuveerudu. Aadi is a carefree guy and doesn’t give much importance to relationships. He lives in America and is money minded. He doesn’t even care his father. Suddenly he comes to India as he is in need of money to invest in his business. He lays his eyes on grandmother Vardhanamma’s (Sharada) property. He wants that property to be transferred on his name so that he can sell it and go away. But his uncle (Rao Ramesh) comes in between. At this juncture another heiress appears. What turns the story takes after that, forms the rest of the story.

Keeping aside story for some time if we observe the performances, Aadi performed with ease. He has made efforts to show all his talent in this movie. Right from reciting junior NTR and senior NTR dialogues to mythological dramas he has shown everything. Nisha Agarwal sparkles on the screen at times. Sharada appeared on silver screen after a long time. She has added grace to the film. Krishna’s role is endearing. It would be better, if Krishna appears in roles like this at least once in a year. Right from senior comedian Srilakshmi to Dhanraj, there are number of comedy and supporting actors.

Technically film is rich. Cinematography is nice. Anup’s tunes are impressive but re-recording is loud. Dialogues are fine.

Director wanted to present Sukumarudu as a comedy entertainer. In the process, instead of creating comedy he has just filled up screen with huge number of characters and confused audience. Also there is no proper continuity or flow in comedy. Characters come and go, scenes run incoherently. Right from village scenes to satires to folk dramas to Tamil gaudy comedy, director has dished out everything. Even hero character shows negative shades. As a whole, Sukumarudu movie completely loses plot and creates confusion in audience. If director Ashok has thought that he can convince Telugu audience with this type of entertainment, it definitely proves his poor understanding of Telugu sensibilities. Rating : 2/5
