Aditi Rao Hydari
Second half little bit slow
Performance: Sudheer Babu looks good. There are so many emotional scenes and he carried them all with excellent conviction. Aditi Rao Hydari fits for Sameera role. Only few directors write such good female characters in Telugu film and Aditi Rao gets one such role with Sammohanam. The chemistry between lead pair is highlighted. Senior actor Naresh in the role of father has delivered his best performance. Hariteja is natural with her performance. Pavitra lokesh in the role of modern mother is good. Rahul Ramakrishna, Tanikella Bharani, Nandu, Kishore Babu, and others performed accordingly in Sammohanam.
Technical: The storyline of Sammohanam is interesting. Vivek Sagar has come out of his comfort zone to give beautiful and fresh music for Sammohanam. Background music is excellent. Cinematography by P.G. Vinda is elegant. His visuals are eye pleasing and create the right impact. Art direction is very good. Dialogues are natural and have depth in them. Editing is good. Production values are good.
Analysis: Sammohanam is all about a romantic tale of a guy and an actress who is facing problems in film Industry. The movie deals that how an actress faces pressure in her life. Plus points of Sammohanam are Sudheer Babu, Aditi Rao Hydari and their chemistry. On the flip-side, the slow narration in second half test the patience of audiences. On a whole, Sammohanam has all elements that make a commercial potboiler work at box office!
