Suresh Productions, a banner known for making meaningful movies, chose a burning issue as the theme for this cinema. The film conveys that life is a gift of God and everyone should feel blessed to be alive and do their best to lead a meaningful life. The film condemns committing suicides for the flimsiest of reasons; it also highlights the fact there are some who resort to this desperate act as a last resort after being driven to the wall. The story deals with the issue interwoven with comedy.

 Alasyam Amrutham What’s it about: Sometimes cinema titles are very apt for the story. The title, Aalasyam Amrutham is one such. The whole story takes place on Annavaram railway station platform and around its vicinity while passengers await the arrival of Simhadri Express which is two hours late. Hero Ram (Nikhil) gets a job in the US; he goes to Annavaram to pay obeisance to Lord Satyanarayana Swamy. On his way home, he bumps into heroine Vaidehi (Madalasa Sharma) waiting for Simhadri Expres. He sees her consoling an abandoned baby and assumes her to be the mother. Vaidehi wants to end her life after she reaches Vijayawada and writes a letter stating the reason. Two sanyasis come across this letter which finally falls into the hands of the hero. Meanwhile, after learning that Vaidehi is not the mother, Ram makes several efforts to trace the parents of the baby. Whether Ram is successful in his efforts to locate the parents and in persuading Vaidehi to change her mind form the rest of the story.

What is Good: Hero Nikhil fits the role and reveals his histrionics besides dancing and fighting skills within the scope of the story. He acts with ease ably supported by Madalasa. The comic brigade is in full attendance. Ali stands out with his versatile action; he plays a thief. He speaks with his gestures; whether he is dumb or is simply fooling others is revealed in the end. Seasoned performances by others – MS Narayana, AVS, Gundu Hanumantha Rao, Dharmavarapu Subrahmanyam, Jayaprakash Reddy, Raghu Babu, Goutham Raju, Ashok Kumar, Shiva Reddy makes the film interesting. Even factionists are shown in a lighter vein for a change; it is a pleasant relief. Aravind Krishna too did a neat job. The item song is cleverly fit into the story. The actress wants to perform for her fans and does so. Shiva Reddy’s mimicry talent is also put to good use in the song.

What is bad: The first half tries to link several characters and situations into the story but is not totally successful. They are loosely linked and it appears slightly dragging, though it picks up in the second half.

Technical Departments: Director Chandra Mahesh shows promise. Cinematography is good. The beautiful Annavaram locales are shown in song sequences. Koti’s music is good as always. The title song is well tuned as also two other songs – item song and the one Ram sings on the platform. Lyrics of the title song are hummable.

Tail-piece : On the whole, the film is watchable. For those who like family entertainment loaded with comedy, this is it.
