Sriram Adittya, who delivered a hit movie with his debut film "Bhale Manchi Roju" in 2015, is coming up with his second film Samanthakamani that is in similar genre of his first film. The trailer of this movie had created enough interest among the moviegoers. Let’s see whether the movie is as good as its trailer.


Krishna (Sudheer Babu) attends a party at Provotel pub in Hyderabad. After the party he finds out that his five crore Rolls Royce vintage car (Samanthakamani) is stolen from the parking lot. C.I. Ranjith (Nara Rohit) takes up this case and starts investigating all the people who had attended the pub on that night.

Shiva (Sundeep Kishan), Karthik (Aadhi) and Car mechanic Uma Maheswara Rao (Rajendra Prasad) are also in the list of people who were at the pub, when the car was stolen and are therefore suspected for their involvement.

All the suspects narrate their version of the story to C.I. Ranjith. Who had actually stolen the Rolls Royce? Whose version of the story is correct? and What is reason behind the theft? forms the rest of the story.

What’s Good:

Second Half



What’s Bad:

First Half




Audience always love to watch Crime thriller movies but only thing they expect is it should entertain them without making them feel bored. While the director had sure created enough buzz by roping in four heroes in this crime thriller movie, the screenplay does not put you on the edge of seat since most of scenes can be predicted. The first half is dull with boring scenes and ends at where the movie started i.e. car being stolen, but the graph goes up in second half with some good twists.

The story does not have any depth and characters are not given proper space to create any impact on the screen. The director tried to run the story with racy screenplay but instead he just rushed the things that makes you think that there is some gap between what director wants to tell and what you are watching on the screen.

All the four heroes tried their best to perform in their respective roles but Sundeep Kishan excelled in the role of Rajahmundry Street thug character. Rajendra Prasad tried to his best to evoke the laughter in the role of mechanic who falls in love with Indraja (vegetable seller). Sudheer Babu tried to pull the emotional character but sometimes the sentiment scenes went overboard and he sounds like Hrithik Roshan in "Koi Mil Gaya"

Nara Rohit as a cranky police officer, Aadhi as middle class lover boy, Tanikella Bharani as Aadhi's father and Suman as Sudheer's father were just ok. Chandini Chowdary and Indraja had nothing much to showcase in the story except coming and going in couple of scenes. Cinematography by Sameer Reddy is the main highlight of the movie. Overall, the movie could have been much better if proper care was taken in depicting first half.
