His dialogue supply can be good and he has a vivid future within the coming days. Harsha performed by Roiel Shree is likely one of the attention-grabbing characters within the series and the director designed his character properly.

Apart from VJ Sunny, Subbaraju as a ruthless police officer carried out very properly and this is likely one of the finest characters he performed in latest occasions. After his entry, the story turned out extra attention-grabbing. His behaviour, darkish humour, and witty punches are nice. The remainder of the characters are okay of their given roles.

Minus Points:

When you need to narrate a heist story, you want to write it engagingly. Injecting a bunch of twists and turns doesn’t make a heist thriller intriguing. It ought to be narrated in an ideal approach that makes audiences glue their eyes to the display. The first 4 episodes run at a sluggish tempo and make one really feel boredom. The latter components are neat however a gripping screenplay may have made ATM a fascinating heist thriller.

The story is good nevertheless it has just a few flaws as properly. The story has just a few pointless characters like Divi and Divyavani. The scenes involving them are completely pointless to the story. Besides, a few of the scenes are illogical.

Gajendra performed by Prudhvi Raj was proven as a robust political chief to start with however the scriptwriter weakened his character by the tip of the season. The makers ought to have roped in a greater artist to play Gajendra because the character has good potential to make the story extra intriguing. The approach the director designed Prudhvi’s character is unimpressive.

If the makers are supposed to proceed a season, it must be ended correctly. One who watched the series will query. “How does Hegde know that there is another man behind the robbery?” The scenes the place Hedge presumes how the theft occurred are illogical and we have to presume that the director made it in order he needs to boost curiosity in regards to the subsequent season.

Technical Aspects:

Director Chandra Mohan tried his finest to make the series a tremendous one. He ought to have concentrated extra on the screenplay as this sort of heist story wants a fascinating and racy screenplay to excite audiences extra.

The camerawork by Monic Kumar G is commendable. The drone pictures and smoke impact pictures are captured very properly. The neat color tone makes the series look wealthy in visuals. Production values are additionally good. Editing by Aswin S may have been higher and lots of scenes have to be chopped off. Prashanth R Vihari’s rating is ok. The VFX staff ought to have carried out a greater job.


On the entire, ATM series, written by Harish Shankar, is an okayish heist thriller that works in components. Though VJ Sunny and Subbaraju carried out properly, the series fails to have interaction audiences due to its sluggish narration within the first few episodes. If you’re okay with some pointless scenes and lag, you possibly can stream the series this weekend. Rating: 2.5/5
