"The film is full of honesty and there is no hypocrisy anywhere. Its presentation, characterization, songs and everything is more or less nearer to my way of filmmaking. I am planning the US release through Touring Talkies distributors. Highlight of the film is non-stop comedy, a different comedy. It is all done with new comers. It has good music too. It is really wonderful."

"We are going to release Ashta Chamma on September 5th in 35 centers all over Andhra Pradesh. I am happy that Sekhar Kammula has come forward to take up overseas distribution through his friends in the US. I feel happy in working together with Ashta Chamma team. The film is based on a new strategy."
What "Director Mohana Krishna Indraganti" said:
"I am moved at the compliment of Sekhar Kammula. The best compliment a director like me would ever get is when his colleague would not only appreciate the film, but becomes a part of its promotion."
What Jeevi of "idlebrain.com" wrote:
On a whole, Ashta Chemma makes a good viewing for multiplexes and A center crowds.This story is based on a play written by Oscar Wilde. Most of the film revolves around name confusion. A film like this needs an interesting screenplay to sustain the attention of he viewers. Mohan Krishna Indraganti succeeds in giving us a film that sustains the interest levels throughout by injecting the necessary twists at the right time. Direction of the film is good. The narrative style using which he introduced characters is brilliant.
