Mirchi Rating : 3/5
Young Rebel Star Prabhas’s Mirchi is out today making its way in a large scale all over. Anushka and Richa Gangopadhyay have made their appearances as his love interests. Koratala Siva made his directorial debut under the production of Uppalapati Pramod and V Vamsi Krishna Reddy of UV Creations banner.
Jai (Prabhas) is a cool guy who is against violence but is interested to spread love. He stays in Milan, Italy where he rescues Manasa (Richa Gangopahyay) from a problem. They get little closer and Jai get to know about her Family background filled with factionism and revenge. Jai returns India and gets closer to Manasa’s family by getting closer with Purna (Subba Raju).
He then tries to change attitude of their family and succeeds partially. Here his past gets introduced filled with emotion in which his father Deva (Satyaraj) has the major importance. Vennela (Anushka) is his cousin and he shares some love story with her.
Story ends revealing about the conflict between Jai and Manasa families and the way he solves the issue with his manners.
Prabhas gave a splendid performance throughout the movie. We have seen earlier playing Romantic characters in Darling, Mr.Perfect and Serious role in Rebel but changing those expectations he has shown all the possible variations starting from a decent guy to a raising rebel. Sampath Kumar’s performance was so helpful for taking the story forward.
Anushka and Richa both were given equal importance and mainly Anushka was gorgeous opposite Prabhas in Idhedho Bagundhey song. Satyaraj and Nadhiya have done good performances as Prabhas’s parents. Bramhanandam, Sathyam Rajesh has done good job in entertaining.
Madhi’s Cinematography is the main asset of the movie. Probably, he may be the first person to show Prabhas in the cute and stylish way ever. DSP’s music was extraordinary and the title track is awesome. Action Sequences will also be loved while the Dhothi Fights has reached the expectations.
The major thing that lacked here is Freshness. The movie will be definitely similar to Shankam and Dhammu. Slow narration in the first half is the major setback of the movie. It took the director so long to get into the story. The much expected Rain fight which was shown in the trailer was excluded from the movie which was little disappointing to the viewer. Climax wasn’t so impressive but was decent to go with.
Prabhas’s body will be seen in many transformations throughout the movie. He appears lean in some scenes and with Macho body in the other scenes. His Dance didn’t reach the expectations.
Koratala Siva has made a fine debut by attempting Mirchi which contained all the ingredients of Telugu Commercial Cinema. His screenplay in first half was little slow but second half was little good. He balanced perfectly to show Prabhas as a decent cool guy and a Macho Man. Dialogues were sensible to carry the pace of the roles and except with the story, Siva has done a fine job.
Mirchi is an out and out Prabhas movie. You will definitely enjoy his involvement and screen presence of every scene. DSP’s Music and Madhi’s Camera Work are also the major plus points. Spiciness of the title may differ with the movie but it is a definite watch for all kinds of audience for Prabhas.
