Maruthi’s Manchi Rojulochaie starring Santosh Sobhan, Mehreen Kaur Pirzada hit the screens on November 4th. Here is the film’s review.
Gundu Gopalam (Ajay Ghosh) colleagues are jealous that he is happy with his obedient daughter Paddu (Mehreen Pirzada) working as a software engineer in Bengaluru. They instill fear in the mind of Gopalam who has that fear psychosis, that due to his daughter, his reputation will be tarnished. At the same time, they use the love story between Paddu and her colleague Santu (Santosh Sobhan) to their advantage. Things become worse to bad though Santu try to instill confidence in Gopalam despite misunderstandings. Where this leads to form the rest of the story.
Santosh Sobhan played the role of a youngster who wants everything from his lover and tries to help her father get out of trouble. He showed good expressions and emotions and played the boy next door role well. Mehreen Pirzada is ok in her role. Her slim physique at times is good but she looked pale at times. Ajay Ghosh performed well as the worried father. Others like Saptagiri, Praveen evoked few laughs.
Director Maruthi who is known to entertain highlighting the weakness of a character, this time tried to do the same with fear psychosis. To some extent he emerged successful. However he took many cinematic lberties and also the repetitive scenes tested the patience of the viewers. Screenplay and direction is ok to some extent and the film is high on emotions and low on entertainment. Anup Rubens music is ok and the background score is good. The cinematography is good. Editing could have been far better. Production values are good.
