Go watch this one this weekend if you cherished the memories you made at ammamma's home during the summers. But if real life holds enough family politics for you, give this one a cold hard miss.

Amammagarillu is a routine family drama with a few good moments here and there. The makers bank heavily on the family audience and try to cook up an emotional family drama that closely resembles Shathamanam Bhavathi. But somewhere down the line, these emotions go off track a bit and run at a sluggish pace during the second half. All those who like family dramas can give this film a shot only if they have nothing else to do.

Spending time in Ammammagari Illu is everyone's liking and the film is loaded with much needed fresh air of comedy, sentiments , warmth and love scenes.
Tollywood Rating: 3
Ammammagarillu is a decent family entertainer movie and has sufficient ingredients to make it work at box office! The director Sundar Surya came with a message oriented movie to impress the audience but number of emotional scenes test the patience of the audience.

#AmmammaGarillu - The storyline is routine and majority of the scenes lacked maturity but somehow the film was not boring. The superbly rendered theme song by SPB Garu is the biggest plus and the fake foreigner and the lead actress are the biggest minuses! Shakalaka Avg watch!
