- Dhanshika's performance - She carries the whole movie on her shoulders with her brilliant performance.
- Varnika and Varsha gives their best. Both of them look good and expresses well.
- Few heart warming scenes.
- Namo Narayana's comedy evoke some laughter.
- Ilaiyaraaja's bgm and songs doesn't inspire us.
- Horror scenes doesn't galvanize the storyline - bad sound design.
- Cinematography - doesn't please us visually.
- Screenplay is terrible.
- Slow and lengthy- tests the patience.
Dhanshika plays the lead in this female centric movie and she could be said as the pillar of the movie and carries the whole movie with her strong performance and expressions.
The two kids in this flick Varnika and Varsha performs well. Varnika shares the screen with Dhanshika for a longer time and she does her role perfectly.
Namo Narayana's comedy clicks at few places and evokes laughter.The Team
Technically this movie is good. The screenplay is terrible and for a women centric movie like this the team should have had a strong writing but as a whole it was amateur.
Cinematography by A. Kumaran and S.R. Santhosh Kumar was good but they haven't experienced with new angles and doesn't impress us much.
A.L. Ramesh's Editing helps the movie in having a smooth ride but with the slow screenplay it looks longer and tests the patience at a point.
Art direction is good and is impressive.
Ilaiyaraaja's music doesn't impress us much and the horror scenes don't work out due to bad sound design.
Bottom line - Enga Amma Rani could have been better if the director had concentrated more on the screenplay.
Certified Fresh - YES!
Stars - 2.5/5
