Mr. Majnu Review
Vicky (Akhil) is a Cassanova who manages to charm Girls easily. He is a family man on the other side to him and Nikki (Nidhhi Agerwal) falls for him eventually impressed by his Family Values. Initially, Vicky accepts her love halfheartedly but their relationship does not last long. By the time, Vicky realizes her worth, things shift to the UK and what happens later in their love story forms the rest.
Akhil has been decent and shines with his dances. Good for his third project, there is still a lot of room for improvement. Nidhhi Agerwal gets a meaty role and is adequate. Rao Ramesh, Naga Babu, Priyadarsi, Hyper Aadi are good and other supporting cast are adequate. There is a huge ensemble of cast which is partly okay and some are wasted.
Venky Atluri chose a wafer-thin story and mostly banked on fresh treatment to drive the point home. But then, the story does not have the depth to stay afloat throughout. Poor Script is the main villain for this film. Thaman once again did a good job with both the music and the background score. George Williams Cinematography is colorful and Production Values are grand. Editing has been patchy.
The first half of the film has been good and things slip off in the second half with boring sequences. Director Venky Atluri seems to have gone to the sets with no proper script. This love story about a "chick magnet" finding true love in a simple girl is riddled with cliched sequences. Akhil's wait for the first break of his career gets longer.
