Review: My Dear Donga – Telugu Movie Now Available on Aha

“My Dear Donga,” available on Aha, is a light-hearted Telugu film exploring modern relationship challenges. Starring Abhinav Gomatam and Shalini Kondepudi, the story follows Sujatha, a dating app copywriter, who encounters a thief, Suresh, leading to unexpected changes in her life. While the film offers entertaining moments and strong performances, it falls short in delivering emotional depth and consistent humor.

Aha’s new movie “My Dear Donga” stars Abhinav Gomatam and Shalini Kondepudi. Here’s a look at what it’s about.

Sujatha (Shalini Kondepudi) works for a dating app. Her relationship with Varun (Nikhil Gajula) isn’t going well. She feels ignored by everyone, even her friend Bujji (Divya Sripada). Things change when a thief named Suresh (Abhinav Gomatam) comes into her life.

Good Points:
Shalini Kondepudi does a great job acting and writing. The funny scenes at the start, especially with the thief, are enjoyable. Abhinav Gomatam and Nikhil Gajula also act well, and Divya Sripada does a good job too.

Bad Points:
The movie tries to show the problems young people face but doesn’t go deep enough. Some important moments feel forced and not believable. The funny parts in the second half aren’t as good, and some scenes don’t work well, like the one at the police station. The movie talks to the audience too much and shows brands too often, which can be annoying.

Technical Stuff:
The music by Ajay Arasada fits well. SS Manoj’s camera work is good, and Sai Murali’s editing keeps the movie moving. B.S. Sarwagna Kumar’s direction is okay, but the movie could have been better emotionally.

Final Thoughts:
“My Dear Donga” tries to talk about modern relationships with humor. The actors do well, and some parts are funny. But not all jokes land, and the movie lacks emotional depth. If you keep your expectations in check, you might enjoy “My Dear Donga.”
