Ammani is an Indian Tamil language drama film, which was written and directed by Lakshmy Ramakrishnan and the movie features herself, Subbulakshmi and Nithin Sathya in the leading roles. On behalf of Tag Entertainment, Ven Govindha has produced the movie. K.R. Imran Ahmedh has made the cinematography work and the editing part was done by K.R. Rejith. Actors like Robo Shankar, Sri Balaji, George Mariyan, Rejin Rose and C. Renuka have acted in supporting roles.
It was stated that Lakshmy Ramakrishnan was motivated to make the film after meeting an elderly rag picker during her talk show and has created a fictional story from her interaction with the woman. Meanwhile Veteran actress Subbalakshmi, who has worked with Ramakrishnan in Gautam Vasudev Menon’s “Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa”, was cast in the titular role, while Lakshmy Ramakrishnan has revealed that she would also play a parallel lead role in the movie.
Na. Muthukumar has written the lyrics for all the movie songs. The story is about Salamma and her relationship with an 82 year old Ammani, and Salamma struggles for her livelihood, but her family members are mainly interested on her money and not on her. The story is making her kids understand her real life is shown beautifully and also powerfully.
The movie is made heartwarming and also more meaningful. There is a strong message behind the movie and Lakshmy Ramakrishnan has penned the dialogues and the story is touching. Subbulakshmi has played the role of Ammani and she has played the role more emotionally. K is the music director and his background scores are really amazing and tempt the mood of the movie to a high level. The songs are excellent and moralizing.
Each and every character in the movie is designed phenomenally and the movie shows the lifestyle of lower class of people in the society. The movie must be watched by all to know more about the life of below average poor people and their daily struggles. Hats off to the director Lakshmy Ramakrishnan.
Overall, A must watch movie for all teens who must love their mothers in olden days too!
