Three educated but unemployed youngsters Anant (Pawan), Rakesh (Trilok) and Mahesh (Mahendra) decides to get rich through illegal means by printing fake currency. The get fake currency printed by taking loan but the moment they are about to exchange the currency, they get demonetization shock from PM Modi.
From then on they face various problems and how they overcome them and endear themselves to all should be found out on silver screen.
Pawan, Rakesh and Mahendra tried their best to attract viewers. Karunya attracted with her looks. She sizzled in hot song. She did not have much role to play. Kishore Das attracts with his comedy to some extent.
Same is the case with Ambati Sreenu who used Khaidi No 150 and Gautamiputra Satakarni for comedy. Others performed their roles accordingly.
Praveen Immadi's music is OK. Background score is good. Cinematography of Shyam Kalyan is good. Editing could have been better. Sunil Kumar Reddy planned to cash in to the demonetization craze but he failed in his execution.
He should have touched one aspect rather than try covering all after affects of demonetization. He should have added few interesting scenes to increase movie lovers interest. Production values are good.
Kishore Das to some extent
Couple of comedy scenes
Story, Screenplay, Direction
Too many things, too little
Sunil Kumar Reddy who is known to highlight human emotions and real issues in his films and won national award for the same this time decided to highlight the after affects of PM Modi's demonetization last year. The note ban affected the lives of many and he tried to highlight the problems of note ban and at the same time passed on PM Modi to the people, how they can come to terms with the change.
Though his idea of educating people of the pros and cons of demonetization is good, he failed to generate interest with his story, screenplay and direction. The story stars on a interesting note but with demonetization affecting three youngsters but then director tries to relate all the demonetization affects in the lives of the youngsters thus making film like a documentary rather than an entertainer.
Viewers get bored seeing the negative effects of demonetization though in the end song comes promoting demonetization. He failed to narrate the story either as a spoof on demonetization or as a serious one and finally it tested the patience of movie lovers.
ATM Not Working fails to attract!
