Meeku Maathrame Chepta
Forged: Tharun Bhascker Dhaassyam, Abhinav Gomatam, Naveen
Director: Shammeer Sultan
A wild journey throughout a quickly undulating cyber house… Wait, that feels like science fiction, which this delightfully raveled comedy, concerning the smartphone appearing method too sensible, isn’t.
So what is that this?! It is exhausting to outline Meeku Maathrame Chepta, Telugu celebrity Vijay Deverkonda’s first manufacturing. Two years in the past Vijay cracked the glass ceiling in Arjun Reddy (a movie lifted from its morass of misogyny by its lead actor’s iconoclastic efficiency). Now, Deverakonda shatters the ceiling as he steps into manufacturing with a movie that’s without delay unusual, droll, depraved and delightfully irreverent.
Author–director Shameer Sultan follows no guidelines of typical filmmaking. His wild rollercoaster of a screenplay appears to have been written underneath the affect of hallucinogenic medicine. It wacks you exhausting in your bum with its sheer temerity bordering on a near-suicidal propensity to flip the lid way back to attainable.
On seeing the trailer I had no clue what Meeku Maathrame Chepta was about. After seeing the movie I discover it exhausting to present away the plot, not as a result of there are twists proper until the top (so don’t transfer out of your seats till the end-song), however as a result of this can be a plot that has no persistence with formalism. It simply tumbles out in a weedy haze grabbing us by our, errr, jowls. Or no matter it could possibly seize.
Image this. Simply hours away from his marriage ceremony to his suspicious unforgiving Catholic girlfriend, Rakesh (filmmaker Tharun Bhascker Dhaassyam, making a formidable appearing debut) discovers himself going viral in a video the place he’s proven celebrating his ‘honeymoon’ with a woman. All proper, I’ll say it. He’s seen sleeping, actually, with a girl who isn’t his fiancé. Along with his finest buddy Kamu (Abhinav Gomatam) by his aspect, Rakesh units of on a panic pilgrimage throughout the digital platform.
Pandemonium ensues, and the way! Director Shameer Sultan is expert at controlling the chaos. He harnesses the anarchy of the digital period the place the iPhone runs our lives. The narrative is leonine and cunning, at all times staying super-sleek because it manages to remain steps forward of us proper until the top.
The performances do their trick. Tharun Bhascker Dhaassyam and Abhinav Gomatam are so credible as buddies in a frantic disaster they’re akin to Jai and Veeru plunged in a technological period that they perceive as scantily as Gabbar’s devious thoughts. The feminine characters may have been extra sympathetically sketched. All the ladies on this boyz-will-be-boyz satire are both plotting in opposition to the boys or screaming at them, admittedly for wrongs they’ve dedicated although not admitted.
There’s a sneakingly sinuous really feel of a Man Rithie crime thriller on this Telugu gamechanger of a movie. Besides that Ritchie’s characters are extra laconic. These cyber victims in Meeku Maathrame Chepta are pushed to despair by forces they can not management. In case you are a diehard fan of the standard Telugu super-hero who obeys his mother and father, adores his sweetheart and brutalises the baddies, then this movie will jolt you.
Heroes are now not what they was once. Generally they’re simply human. With hilarious penalties.
