A tiny difference, Sukumar, in the beginning is money minded and shows traits of selfishness. He comes back to the village with the intention of inheriting 150 Crores(!) from his grandmother Vandanamma (Sharada). Obviously when such a big amount is involved, there would be some difficulty, here, the difficulty is in the form of Rao Ramesh, his uncle. So much drama without songs is unthinkable, so, there is Sankari (Nisha). Problem solved, throw in some unwanted songs and a love track.
Will Sukumar succeed in getting the property? What happens with the love story? What happens with the grandmother? - form the three hour movie.
Positive will definitely be Krishna and Sharad's presence and performances. Not much else to boost about in the film. Acting from both the lead actors can be said superficial.
It is easier to pin point many negatives, but considering the effort put in to make a big movie needs appreciation as well. Having said that, the movie could have been made a lot shorter. If the filmmakers had put more interest in coming up with a better script, than making sure, they had all the various elements (a village backdrop, NRI hero, family sentiment, multiple comedians, etc) - this movie would have made more sense.

Sharada - One Of The Few Good Actors
Sharada and Aadi, grandmother and grandson concept is good. Sharada's acting is a huge plus. She portrayed the grandmother sentiment very beautifully.
The chemistry between Aadi and Nisha could have been better. Their songs are beautiful, but the same should have happened during many other crucial situations.
Screenplay, cinematography, direction, editing are not good enough. The director and producers should have worked better on the script of the movie.
The concept of having multiple comedians is cliched. They were successful in bringing out some laughs.
Action sequences are good. How he managed to learn such good fighting when he is only bothered about money is a mystery.
Many comedy scenes have gone a little over-board, but still managed a few laughs.
Sukumarudu - Skip It
Watch if you are die-hard fans of Aadi. Or adventurous enough to test your patience to the point of breaking.
