Meda Meedha Abbayi Telugu Movie Review

Feature Film | UA | Comedy, Remake
Critics:
Meda Meedha Abbayi is a below average fare and can be said that it is a poor remake of a Blockbuster film. The comedy scenes of Hyper Aadi are the only saving grace in the film. Watch it only if you have nothing else to do.

Srinu (Allari Naresh) is a failure at College and lands up in Hyderabad to become a film director. When in the train, he takes a selfie with Sindhu (Nikhila Vimal) without her notice. But that single selfie lands him in big trouble. Who is Sindhu? What are the problems she brings? How Srinu gets out of them forms the rest of the story.


Allari Naresh is honest to the character and delivered a decent performance as an easy going guy. Nikhila Vimal is good looking and performed to the level of expectations. Satyam Rajesh, Hyper Aadi and others are seen as Hero's Friends. Hyper Aadi's comedy is the highlight of the film. Avasarala Srinivas is seen in a crucial role and is good.


Meda Meedha Abbayi has a very simple storyline but it lacks proper depth and purpose. It is the remake of a blockbuster Malayalam film, Oru Vadakkan Selfie. There are too many cinematic liberties in the film. The core point itself about Hero falling in a lot of troubles due to a selfie sounds silly. In order to maintain the suspense for long, the movie is stretched beyond a point which bores the audience, particularly in the second half.


Prajith, the director of the Original directed this film as well but he failed to do justice for the film. The screenplay is too flat making the film very slow. The camera work by Kunjuni S. Kumar is poor and the music by Shaan Rahman is just okay. Editing by Nandamuri Hari is also disappointing.


Finally, Meda Meedha Abbayi is a below average fare and can be said that it is a poor remake of a Blockbuster film. The comedy scenes of Hyper Aadi are the only saving grace in the film. Watch it only if you have nothing else to do.
