Before the release of Sammohanam, actor Naresh said that it is his best film in his second innings. However, not many took him seriously. After the release of the film, the actor proved that he didn't lie.
After its release, he is getting unanimous accolades. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that his comic timing is winning greater praise than Sudheer Babu's acting!
Naresh's second innings has been on an upswing for 3 years now. He has played full-fledged roles effectively in Trivikram Srinivas's A Aa, Rangasthalam, Brahmotsavam, Sathamanam Bhavati, MCA, and Tholi Prema in recent times.
Unlike Rao Ramesh, Naresh's forte is (almost) exclusively comedy. But as Rangasthalam shows, he can be competent even in serious roles. After Sammohanam, special roles may be crafted by writers/directors keeping him in mind.
