Mr Majnu Movie Review

Release date : January 25, 2018
Starring : Akhil Akkineni, Nidhhi Agerwal, Naga Babu, Rao Ramesh
Director : Venky Atluri
Producer : B. V. S. N. Prasad
Music Director : S. Thaman

Mr. Majnu is one film which is very important for the career of Akhil as his last two films were received with mixed response. He has pinned a lot of hopes on Mr. Majnu which has hit the screens today. Let’s see whether the film gives Akhil his much needed hit.

Story :

Vicky(Akhil) is a playboy who does not believe in serious relationships. This is the time Nikki(Nidhi Aggarwal) falls for Vicky and proposes to him. Left with no choice, Vicky accepts her proposal and this is the time the problems in the love story blossom and the couple fall apart. Rest of the story is as to how Vicky takes things in his hands and wins his love back.


Akhil is stylish, suave and very much believable as the guy who can win any girl. Besides his handsome looks and fit physique, Akhil has come up with a very good performance as Vicky. He has the talent and attitude to compete against the best. Nidhi Agarwal is good looking but the character demands a better performer. Priyadarshi and Adhi offers humor as the hero's sidekicks in the first half and second half respectively. All the senior actors like Nagababu, Sitara and Rao Ramesh have done a neat job. Subbaraju is good as the tough looking guy with a soft heart.

Plus Points:

Akhil's look and performance
First half

Minus Points:

Cliched portions in second half

Technical Aspects :

Even though Thaman’s music score was just about okay to listen, on screen all his songs look lovely. His background score was also quite efficient. Production values by BVSN Prasad were top notch as the London visuals were captured superbly by the camera team. Dialogues are neat and so was the production design. Editing is disappointing as close to 10 minutes could have been edited out.

Coming to the director Venky Atluri, he has done just an okay job with the film. His story idea is simple but he could not generate the needed screenplay in the film. He starts the proceedings quite interestingly but does not generates the needed romance in between the lead pair. There are some good scenes and few comedy episodes which keep coming in between but the lack of depth in the love story makes the proceedings a bit dull.

Verdict :

On the whole, Mr. Majnu is a contemporary love story which has a decent set up. But the lack of emotional connect in the love story takes things down in the second half. The lead pair does extremely well and hold the proceedings along with some decent comedy which clicks here and there. Novelty wise, there is nothing new in this film and we suggest you keep your expectations in check and go in with the flow of the film which ends as a below average fare this weekend.
