Mister Movie directed by Srinu Vaitla, starring Varun Tej, Lavanya Tripathi, Hebah Patel, Nikitin Dheer, Prudhviraj. This movie is very important for Srinu Vaitla as well as for Mega hero Varun Tej. As mega heroes vie for top position at box office, Varun Tej from the mega block is trying to create a niche for himself with content-based movies. Otherside Lavanya Tripathi’s million watt dimpled smile is enough to warrant her place in the spotlight. But when you add to that hard work, self-belief and talent, you can be sure that this girl was meant to go places.
What is it about?
Mister is the story of a happy-go-lucky guy Chay (varun Tej) who falls for a girl Meera (Hebah Patel) and is loved by another one. When Meera’s love runs into a problem, Chay goes to solve it and unite the lovers. On his way he meets Chandramukhi (Lavanya), a naive girl who doesn’t know anything about the modern society. Little does he know that he could run into a bigger problem because of her. Meanwhile, Chandramukhi falls in love with Chay and also Meera also starts having feelings for him. The tale of triangular love story embedded with family emotions and a dose of director marked comedy.
Varun Tej looking different from his previous movies. He gained some experience in acting. His performance is one of the positive point for the movie. Hebah Patel Comedy by Srinivas Reddy, Raghu babu and Prudhvi was decent in the first half.
Director Srinu Vaitla created his magic in first half but failed to maintain in second half. Music by Mickey J. Mayer is good. Background score is awesome. Cinematography by K. V. Guhan is an eye feast. Action sequences and Production values are very good.
lengthy pre-interval scene
Mister starts off on an entertaining note and looks cool until the first hour. Things go topsy turvy once the protagonist lands in India. It is evident that the director is not at his best, but he managed to keep the audience entertained by introducing new characters at frequent intervals. Despite a few laughs, Mister clearly missed the humorous stamp of Sreenu Vaitla. The attempt of spoofing Oopiri hasn’t clicked.
Although first half is fairly entertaining and passable, the second half turned out to be a total mess. Lavanya’s family background is unbelievably idiotic and those elaborate scenes to establish the cruelness and stupidity of her family never allows the film to bounce back. And the sacrificing saga of heroines towards the climax makes it all the more tedious.
It is evident that Sreenu Vaitla wanted to give a new experience to viewers with the Devaraya’s backdrop in that village of Karnataka, but that never sounded authentic at any point. In fact it looked silly and made the whole movie seem like a bad joke. A regular damsel in distress and the love triangle laced with comedy might have turned out better than this overcomplicated mess.
Second half of the movie is so bad that it almost makes us forget about the positives in its first half. Sreenu Vaitla stretches it a far too much to add sentiment to the proceedings with the introduction of grandfather character towards the end. Mister is a badly written, poorly executed but lavishly shot film that will put the audience’s patience to test. It would need a miracle to stay in theaters until Baahubali arrives.
