Upon examining her, he finds out she too is affected by the same disease. Dhansika goes through a lot with everything happening around her - be it trying to find her missing husband and managing the treatment of her daughter. The remaining plot revolves around whether she manages to find her husband, if her daughter is ridden off the illness and what could be the reason for her daughter getting affected by that rare disease.
Dhansika needs to be appreciated for the choice of such a bold role. However, she could have emoted better considering there is a lack of depth in many scenes where she is trying to locate her husband and is muddled over the disease her daughter has been affected with. She does excel in a few scenes though. Varnika and Varsha, who play her daughters have performed extremely well and have done justice to their roles. Namo Narayana appears in a completely new look and delivers a satisfactory performance despite appearing in only few scenes. Although Shankar Sri Hari is a newcomer to cinema, he has handled his role as a seasoned actor.
Director Bani's attempt at telling a story is a misstep considering we are unable to understand what exactly he intends to tell with Enga Amma Rani. He has tried to tell two stories in a single film and leaves us hanging with an unbalanced plot. Viewers are left confused as to where the story is. In addition, the mother sentiment fails to strike a chord with the audiences.
Ilaiyaraaja's songs are average. A particular song in the film that brings to light the mother sentiment is made less enjoyable since it has not been shot in an appropriate manner. The background score too could have been more effective. Santhosh Kumar's cinematography too is quite ordinary.
In short, Enga Amma Rani is a letdown.
