Ambajipeta Marriage Band, starring Suhas and newcomer Shivani Nagaram, has hit the big screens today amid moderate anticipation. Dive into our review to find out if the film meets the expectations or not.



The film’s story is set in 2007 in a village named Ambajipeta. Mallikarjun (Suhas), a barber and drummer, and Padmavathi (Saranya Pradeep), a government school teacher, are twins hailing from a lower caste. Some villagers suspect something is amiss between Venkat (Nithin Prasanna), the village’s influential figure, and Padmavathi. However, the situations take a tense turn when the upper caste Venkat insults Padma over a personal matter, leading to a rift between Mallikarjun and Venkat. The unfolding events among Venkat, Malli, and Padma weave a captivating story that demands attention on the big screen.


Plus Points:

A movie succeeds in entertaining viewers when it boasts a neat story, a decent screenplay, and strong performances – precisely what Ambajipeta Marriage Band achieves.

Suhas takes on another interesting role, shining with compassion as he immerses himself in the character, making audiences glued to the narrative.

Saranya Pradeep, portraying Suhas’s sister, tackles an impressive and powerful character with pride. She delivers a compelling performance thanks to her well-written character, enhancing the overall storyline. A couple of scenes featuring Saranya are sure to elicit enthusiastic reactions, perhaps even some whistles.

Despite being a debutant in a feature film, Shivani Nagaram handles her role admirably, justifying her presence on screen. Her scenes with Suhas generate cute and lovely vibes.

Supporting artistes like ‘Pushpa’ Jagadeesh and Nithin Prasanna contribute their best to the film, and the music serves as a fine addition.


Minus Points:

Director Dushyanth Katikaneni, also the film’s writer, opts for a story that lacks major twists, akin to an industry hit movie. However, despite the simplicity, his screenplay works its magic.

While the love story is acceptable, it could have been treated more effectively in the second half. Establishing a more interesting emotional connection between Suhas and Saranya Pradeep would have enhanced the resonance during emotional scenes.

Although the story is somewhat hard-hitting, a slightly better and racy screenplay in the second half might have made the film more compelling.


Technical Aspects:

Debutant Dushyanth Katikaneni scores well as a writer and director. However, concentrating more on the storyline and incorporating a few more hard-hitting dialogues could have improved the film’s end result.

Music director Sekhar Chandra, cinematographer Wajid Baig, and editor Kodati Pawan Kalyan execute their roles flawlessly, enriching the film’s quality. Special appreciation goes to the production team for investing a decent amount in the project.



On the whole, Ambajipeta Marriage Band is an impressive drama that deals with a social issue, and showcases fine performances by Suhas, Saranya Pradeep, and Nithin Prasanna. The film’s downsides include a known, straightforward story and a slightly slow narration in the second half. You can give this movie a watch this weekend. Rating: 3/5
