India Glitz Ratings: 3

If Naga Shourya is the film's best performer, others complement him well, especially Pallak and Murali. Rao Ramesh passes muster. A coming-of-age love story with an interesting plot and a fairly good narration. Watch it for the lead pair and the theme.

Chitramala Ratings: 2.50

Movie begins with an animated sequence of a boy and girl in a Wall E like looks with a lended voice of Raj Tarun for the male character. These two characters narrate story. First half of this movie is average. Tedious screenplay and some rotten comedy makes it awful at some places. It ends with the both leads getting into problems. Director seems to be confused at various places. The impact which makers expected while writing script is not translated correctly on screen. Second half starts with hero solving heroine's problems. It makes us question where the story is heading towards. This movie lacks the necessary depth, believable sequences and chemistry between both the leads. To sum up, Abbayitho Ammayi is an emotional ride lack of depth.

Tollwood Ratings: 2.50

Abbayitho Ammayi is a perfect package for youth but it became fail to entertain the mass audiences. The movie is simple and entertaining. Director became successful to deliver a clean and good entertainer movie with good message for family viewers. The first half of the movie is more entertaining in compare of second half. The dialogues between the parents of Naga Shourya and Palak are entertaining. The first half is fully loaded with romantic scenes whereas entertainment level goes down as the movie progresses and the second half tuned out sentimental and emotional. The movie has good message on love and friendship. The director tried to present the current mind set of youth, their expressions and feelings.
