Lakshmy Ramakrishnan, who has two sons and one daughter, works as a helper in a government hospital for her earnings. Her daughter elopes from the house to marry her lover. When her elder son does not do any work and remains as an alcoholic, the younger son drives an auto and earns his wages.
In this situation, Lakshmy builds a house with a loan amount. Unable to pay back the debt, she decides to quit her job, settle her debt from the retirement money and share the balance amount to her children who are affectionate towards her. But when the entire amount gets over in repaying the debt, the frustrated younger son takes the possession of the house and sends his brother and mother out of the place.
Ammani, a 82 year old lady, who makes her living by selling waste plastics, gives asylum to Lakshmy. What happens after that and whether the family gets re united has been narrated in the rest of the movie.
The whole story revolves around the director/artist Lakshmy Ramakrishnan. Having lived up to her role, she garners the appreciation of the audience in the sentiment scenes with her acting skills and proves her ability to play any type of character. Improved her mettle as a director as well, she brings before our eyes, the perfect life style of the slum dwellers and how money plays an important role in the day-to-day life of the younger generation. More over, the director gets a special applause for the film's gentle and emotional screenplay without any romance or vulgar dance sequences. The dialogues are supportive to the screenplay.
Subbulakshmi, who comes as Ammani patti and Nithin Sathya who comes as the second son of Lakshmy Ramakrishnan are able to grab the attention of the audience by their smart performances. Robo Shankar makes his presence as Yemadharma Raja in a dance sequence.
Imran's cinematography is excellent. Songs are to the average in K's composition but his BGMs are so melodious and enjoyable.
On the whole, Ammani is for all.
