Ante Sundaraniki: Nani and Nazriya’s chemistry elevate the romantic comedy, says director Vivek Athreya

Vivek Athreya’s romantic comedy Ante Sundaraniki hit theatres around the country earlier this week. The movie starring Nani and Nazriya Nazim Fahadh has been received well by the fans and the director has now credited Nani and Nazriya for elevating the movie. 

“I absolutely cannot imagine this film without Nani or Nazriya. We were very keen on casting these two as the leads, and they really breathed life into the characters. Ante Sundaraniki has something in it for everyone and must be experienced in theatres,” the director said, as reported by Times of India. 

The director revealed that the response from the audience has been overwhelming and that while he knew that people would get hooked to the movie, it was unexpected to hear people tell him that the movie moved them. 

Vivek also said that it was his decision to tell the story through the eyes of Nani’s Sundar in a non-linear narrative to spice things up and that it seems to have worked a treat after hearing fan reactions. 

“Only a handful of films can play to the strengths of their lead cast and still have a directorial voice to anchor the proceedings firmly. Ante Sundaraniki is one film that gets this balance deliciously right and is a testimony to the gifted storyteller that Vivek Athreya is.” reads a part of the movie’s review on OTTplay. 

While the movie marks the Telugu debut of Nazriya, the movie also features Naresh, Rohini, Nadhiya, Azhagam Perumal, Harsha Vardhan and Rahul Ramakrishna in other important roles. 

Backed by Naveen Yerneni, Ravi Shankar Yalamanchili under the banner of Mythri Movie Makers, the movie is the tale of an inter-religious romance and the troubles it brings. The movie is now available in theatres near you.
