Movie Review: Mr Majnu

Mr Majnu Story: A captivating playboy who has never had a serious courting reveals himself in a spot of trouble when he in any case meets the suitable lady. Will they end up together? Or will his concern of dedication affect their courting?

Mr Majnu Review: There could not were a better name than Mr Majnu for a film that deals with a male protagonist's endurance of a heartbreak. With this Venky Atluri directorial, Akhil Akkineni has officially been given the mantle to take over the casanova roles that his father-actor Nagarjuna has specialized in. It can not get more legit than this, when he is referred to his grandfather and father's iconic films in a lyric that reads 'Devadasu manavado, Manmadhudike varasudo'. However, more than the playboy aspect to Akhil, it's his appearing mettle that impresses in Mr Majnu, the most. The film is evidence to Akhil's coming of age and composure as an actor, presenting his self belief to maintain a really perfect masala trip.

Vikram Krishna a.k.a Vicky, performed via Akhil, is a heartthrob at college, a success with girls, such a lot in order that they fight to be his 'girlfriend'. On his return go back and forth to India after completing his graduation, he meets Nikitha a.k.a Nikki (Nidhhi Agerwal) all over a flight. After preliminary friction, Vicky and Nikki get a better excuse to hangout together realising that each their cousins are due to marry soon. The courting then takes various twists and turns while Nikki is at the receiving finish with Vicky's dedication issues. The plot deals with how the 2 stand during the thick and skinny of their courting and revive their love.

For the first thirty minutes at least, Mr Majnu proceeds on a rocky terrain. Director Venky tries a tad too onerous to project the flirtatious aspect to his lead personality Vicky and the regular references to Akhil's 'glamour', 'middle throb' symbol appear an excessive amount of to maintain. The film comes into its own best all over the family-drama segments, the place you realise the 'gentlemanly' measurement of Vicky. The actual surprise is the understated performance of Akhil Akkineni right here, he is extremely environment friendly in placing an emotional chord.

Though the film ceaselessly offers you a deja vu of the director's first film Tholi Prema when it comes to the narrative structure, Mr Majnu doesn't lose steam for many parts. There's some liveliness within the proceedings with Hyper Aadi's access in the second one hour, his bitter-sweet equation with Subbaraju ensuring laughs aplenty. The commentary via an animated model of a two-year-old toddler makes for some very engaging sequences too. Certain quirks to the characters, like that of Priyadarshi, who suffers every time Akhil tells a lie, upload flavour to the film.

The dialogues remain to-the-point and the sub plots whole the tale well, even though the thread about film piracy will have been integrated better into the tale. Rao Ramesh's role starts off with much promise, best to be ignored faster. Mr Majnu will have even been a crispier film had the filmmaker avoided those overlong motion segments. Nidhhi Agerwal will get numerous screen area to show her scope however doesn't make any have an effect on as an actor.

It's Akhil who steadies this rocky ship, while composer Thaman remains the unsung hero of the film for its terrific music rating. Be it energy, melody or a sense of calm, Thaman's music is an ideal anchor to the film's tale. Mr Majnu will not be as heartwarming as Tholi Prema, however has every part in it to make for an interesting watch at the cinemas.
