Prabhas New Telugu Film Mirchi Movie Review:
Telugu actor Prabhas’ much-hyped movie Mirchi, which happens to be the next biggest outing after Rebel, has hit the marque today. Debuntant Koratala Siva, who has earlier penned story and dialogues for several hit films, is turning director with this film, which has soared up the viewers’ curiosity to sky high. It surely lives up to their expectations with its sound production elements and good performances by lead actors.
Jai (Prabhas) is an architect based in Milan, where he falls in love with Manasa (Richa) at first sight. He returns to his village in Palnadu area to reform his violent family background. With the help of bank manager Veera Pratap (Brahmanandam), Jai makes good advancement in winning the appreciation of everyone in Manasa’s family. Here unfolds an interesting twist in the story. Jai shares strong connection with a man named Deva (Sathya Raj), who is an arch enemy of Manasa’s family. Meanwhile, Manasa also realises that Jai is romantically linked with another woman named Vennela (Anushka). What happens next will form the crux of the story, which should be watched on screen.
Prabhas is perfect in the role of Jai. Prabhas’s career planning lies in balancing stuff while selecting script. His character in this movie has two shades to it. One is family guy and other one is action hero. Prabhas is exceptionally good in all departments. Be it comedy, romance, action sequences, sentiment and dances. Another big advantage of Prabhas as a commercial hero is that he has a huge base of hardcore fans, but not many people who opine negatively of him. It’s a good sign for a hero of such stature to grow bigger and bigger.
Anushka is adorable in the role of a naughty village belle. The dubbing done to her is also good. She has got the best songs in the movie (Idedo Bagunde and Darlinge). I feel that Anushka’s characterization in Mirchi the best among her recent Telugu films. Richa Gangopadhyay is nice as another heroine. Richa is the only female lead in first half and Anushka enters in the second half. Nadiya is beautiful and she looks more like a sister to Prabhas than mother. Satyaraj played the role of Prabhas’s father and he is apt. Subbaraju is in his elements as a reformed baddie. Brahmanandam is used in the first half to generate some entertainment. Sampat Raj is good as one of the villains. Aditya Menon is becoming a regular face for Telugu faction films. Satyam Rajesh has done a comedy role as bava of Anushka.
Technical and Other Departments:
Mirchi is a romantic action entertainer, which is rich in commercial aspects. Music by Devi Sri Prasad is a big plus to the film. The placing of songs would have been better. Mirchi title song is trimmed by half. There is not enough gap between two good songs (Idedo Bagunde & Darlinge) in the second half. Songs in second half are good. Background music deserves a special mention. I like the way he used humming raagas as background in starting of sentimental/greatness-revealing scenes (observed it first time when Satyanarayana salutes Bala Krishna in Samarasimha Reddy – Mani Sharma BGM). Dialogues by Koratala Shiva are good. There are meaningful dialogues (comparing Magatanam with a man having big-heart), mass dialogues (Nuvvu maa vooru ravalante sketch vesi raavaali, nenu nee vooriki ravalante hanger ki vunna shirt veskunte chalu) and comedy dialogues (pelli choopulu scene where groom’s reaction when heroine says that she did MS in abroad). Art direction by AS Prakash is pretty good (the selection of Sampath Raj’s house especially). Cinematography by Madhie helped the movie. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao is fine. Producers Vamsi and Pramod have done a lavish production to produce a visually rich movie.
Koratala Siva has chosen a good emotional story, which is the paramount of the movie Mirchi. It has fast-paced narration and the director has got a good grip over the tempo. The first half of the film has two stunning fights and three songs (two romantic and a title track) and a few comedy sequences, and it has all other masala elements to make you glued to the screens. The fight and twist at interval bang set the tone for the story. The second half is very important. After the interval bang, the movie Mirchi goes into flashback mode and it turns very emotional. The second half has three sentimental, romantic and trendy songs and an amazing fight. The movie reaches the climax with a sad twist, which is heart-wrenching, and should be watched on screen.
Overall, Prabhas is the showman in the movie Mirchi and he carries whole responsibility on his shoulder. In addition, the film has rich production values. It is a must watch movie for Prabhas fans. Girls will go mad over the Darling star.
