Shamanthakamani Movie Review

Release Date: Friday 14th July 2017


Sudheer Babu, Nara Rohith, Sundeep Kishan, Aadhi Saikumar, Suman, Rajendra Prasad, Indraja, Raghu Karumanchi and others


A rich businessman Jagannadhs (Suman) son takes his fathers favourite possession, a vintage Rolls Royce Car called Shamanthakamani to his birthday party.

The son Krishna (Sudheer Babu) heads to a popular pub in Hyderabad to party. Next day, he goes to the police station to report that his car has been stolen.

Inspector Ranjith Kumar (Nara Rohith) begins the enquiry and rounds up suspects Shiva (Sundeep Kishan), Karthik (Aadhi) and Uma Maheshwara Rao (Rajendra Prasad).

Rest of the movie is about finding the guy who stole the car.


Director Sriram Aditya made his debut with Bhale Manchi Roju which was praised for racy screenplay. The story had many twists and turns, yet he pulled off the movie quite effectively. His first movie was all about a girl getting kidnapped and the hero and the rest of the cast caught in that tangle.

In his second venture, the director has selected  car theft as the focal point and brought in various characters into the drama. If you replace kidnap with car stealing, the rest of the drama feels pretty similar. But unlike the first movie, this one has uneven narration while the first half is boringly dull, second half is engaging.

If we compare this with his first movie, Shamanthakamani falls flat, but as a stand alone movie it makes for time pass watch due to some meaty scenes in post interval sequences.

The car is stolen and the suspects are out there. Who stole it? And Why? This simple line is fleshed out with flashback episodes each suspect telling his version of what he did at the party.

The comedy is generated with constable Raghus character when they narrate their stories. But the director has taken entire first half to establish the five characters and then puts an intermission bang. However, the real matter only happens in later portion but the director keeps interest till the end. The twist in the tale is also good towards the end.

Comedian Raghu steals the show literally. Though Rajendra Prasad goes overboard in many instances, his track with Indraja is good. The emotional angle to Sudheer Babus story is also nice.

On the downside, there is not much story to tell. But we also get the feeling that the director has not used enough comedy as the script provides lots of scope for it. Another deterrent is the tacky first half.

All in all, this thriller comedy works due to its fun elements in the second half and the performances of the lead actors. In short, a time pass movie that does not have nothing much to rave about or criticize.
