Bottom Line: A light-hearted take on the life of actresses, which ends as a fair attempt, though a slow and preachy one.
The director of feel-good movies, Indraganti Mohana Krishna, post the back to back successes Gentleman and Ami Thumi, has made a return to silver screen, this time with Sammohanam, which marks the Tollywood debut of Bolly beauty Aditi Rao Hydari, and Sudheer Babu, who's in need of a solo hit, with Sammohanam. Here's team AP Herald's exclusive Sammohanam review.

Sudheer Babu is a writer, who hates films. and situations force Sameera Rathod (Aditi Rao Hydari), a north girl who is acting in Telugu, to reside in his place during the shooting of her movie. During the course of the shooting, though they develop feelings for each other despite Sudheer's hate for movies, there is a sudden trouble as Sudheer insults Aditi. However, Sudheer gets to know of her past and decides to help her. Did Aditi join Sudheer is what Sammohanam is all about.
The film completely belongs to Aditi Rao Hydari, who has delivered an interesting performance on debut. Despite being alien to the language, Aditi has emoted beautifully, besides also perfectly dubbing her own lines, with sync. Sudheer Babu despite playing the second fiddle for the most part when he shares screen space with Aditi, scores wherever possible, and has delivered a subtle performance. Naresh and Rahul Ramakrishna evoke laughs and are adequate. The rest of the cast doesn't get much scope as the movie primarily belongs to Aditi and Sudheer.
The movie has a refreshing BGM and song track, full credits to Vivek Sagar, who has impressed with his pleasant numbers like Manasainadedo, O Cheli Thara, and all the other numbers as well. Cinematography by PG Vinda captures the indoor locales of Sudheer's home as well the filmy visuals featuring Aditi with perfection.  Marthand Venkatesh's taut editing makes sure there's never a dull moment in Sammohanam. Sammoaham marks the return of Indraganti Mohanakrishna after the back to back success of Gentleman and Ami Thumi, and the director, known for his knack of choosing different genres, this time goes for a love story of a writer who hates films and an actress. 


The director has opted to present struggles faced by actresses in the film industry with the help of Aditi's Sameera and fairly succeeds. While the first half moves on a leisurely pace with fun and appealing visuals, the second half is very slow and turns preachy as well, with more emphasis on dialogues than actions. However, Aditi's performance, the beautiful songs by Vivek Sagar and Vinda's cinematography help Indaraganti Mohanakrishna's Sammohanam end up as a decent venture that requires little patience.
