Director G.Ashok?s movie Sukumarudu starring Aadi and Nisha Agarwal is a one-time watch. The film revolves around Sukumar (Aadi) who is portrayed as a greedy NRI from the US. He comes to India only to exploit his old grandmother and a Rs 100 crore property. However, his grandmother Vandanamma (Sarada) is a tough nut to crack. Sukumar tries his best to win her over and, in doing so, happens to meet Shankari (Nisha Agarwal). Sukumar, who does not believe in emotion, finally falls in love with the heroine.
Aadi charms the audience with his dance moves but fails to impress in some emotional scenes. The action sequences have been well-shot. Nisha Agarwal is yet to find her comfort zone. She needs to brush up on her dancing skills too.
The director could have used the comedians in a more useful manner. Jayaprakash Reddy, Rao Ramesh and other senior artistes try their best, and Krishna deserves admiration for his performance. Urvasi Sarada is back with a bang with a power-packed performance in the film.
The cinematography is a weak point. The screenplay is average but the music is great. The movie could have been smoother with better editing. The story is strong but needed better handling by the director.
Overall, it is an average movie with many flaws.
