Review : Meeku Mathrame Cheptha

Hero Vijay Deverakonda’s maiden production venture Meeku Mathrame Cheptha has been promoted aggressively all over. Directed by debutant Shammir Sultan, the film has hit the screens today. Let’s analyze it.

Story:

Rakesh (Tharun Bhascker), who is gearing up to marry his long-time girlfriend(Vani Bhojan) all of sudden receives a video bite. As the video is related to Rakesh’s private space, he and his friends delete the content before it gets viral. Just when they are in a relaxed mood after the video is deleted, Rakesh yet again receives the video link from an unknown person. Who has sent the video bite to Rakesh again? Can Rakesh trace the unknown person and save his marriage?. That forms the rest of the story.

Analysis:

Debutant Shammir Sultan has come up with a simple point that deals with the current scenario of social media viral issues. His idea is good and has novelty in it but his presentation is not up to the mark. Though he tried to narrate the film on a fun note, somewhere the film’s pace drops due to a lack of connectivity between the scenes.

If Shammir would have written a better screenplay, things could have worked in an even nice manner.

Coming to artists’ performance, director-turned-actor Tharun Bhascker is good in his role. He portrayed the role which has mixed emotions in a nice manner. Comedian Abhinav Gomatam is hilarious in the given role. His punch dialogues and typical dialogue delivery evokes good laughs.

Anchor Anasuya did her part convincingly and brought a lot of depth to the film. Heroines Vani Bhojan and Avantika Mishra are okay in their given roles and are cute on the screen.

Plus Points:

Abhinav Gomatam’s comedy timing
A few fun scenes between Tharun and his friend’s gang

Minus Points:
Lack of gripping narration
Simple storyline
Music

Verdict:

All in all, Meeku Mathrame Cheptha is a simple fun film that is executed in a decent manner. Tharun and his gang’s acting and a few fun episodes are handled in an impressive manner. But a lack of engaging screenplay and single point narration may not go well with the audience hence making it just an average fare at the box office.

 

Rating: 3/5
