Sudheer Babu Sammohanam

Vijay (Sudheer Babu) is an aspiring child books illustrator who has a great talent but independent ideas. He doesn’t have a good opinion on movies and persons involved with movies but his father (Naresh) is a ardent movie buff and is trying to get a chance in movies as an actor and accepts to give his house as film location for 20 days to shoot if they give him a role. During the shoot, Vijay accidentally becomes Telugu language coach to non-Telugu heroine Sameera Rathod (Aditi Rao Hydari) and they both get to know each other well with the passage of time. One day, Vijay confesses his love for Sameera and she rejects his love. How they both get into relationship forms rest of the story.

Cast and performance

Sudheer Babu has played his role convincingly. He showed the vulnerabilities of Vijay with his facial expressions. Aditi Rao Hydari as non-Telugu heroine Sameera is surely a charmer in the movie. She is fantastic in her role and her dubbing and the cuteness in her voice and face works well. Naresh as father of Vijay, an aspiring actor has done a terrific job. He made audience go rofl with his body language and funny expressions he give. Nandu is good. Rahul Ramakrishna, Abhi, Pavitra, Harsitha are good in their roles. Thanikella Bharani has done a good job and all the rest of actors are apt for their roles.

Slow pace


Sammohanam is a love story between a guy who hates movies and people involved with them and a heroine who is also a superstar. Writer and director Mohana Krishna Indraganti has again done a terrific work in terms of writing as well as executing it with perfect casting and team. He proves his knack of making movies with a difference yet again and his vision is well supported by superb actors who made their characters relatable to audience. Actor Naresh is someone who need to be mentioned especially when talking about the actors of this movie and his comedy timing and body language gives the best humorous moments to audience this year and coming to Aditi Rao Hydari, her cuteness is what we notice after the movie. Sammohanam is a perfect entertainer for families this Eid which has humorous moments, emotions and above all great writing and acting.
