1. Spain Episodes
1. Pathetic Story
2. Sluggish Narration
4. Entire Second Half
Srinu Vaitla usually follows a formula in making a film. However, he broke the formula to make Mister. That doesn’t mean that, he made a unique or exceptional film. He opted to a story that has numerous threads and links which will kill your brain. The first half that too Spain episodes where Varun Tej is seen adoring Hebah Patel and getting his family support are neatly presented. Then, movie takes new turn (wrong turn indeed), with Hebah revealing about her love with Prince and then fresh troubles in love because of some reasons. Srinu Vaitla narrated complete different story in second half, where many characters are introduced. Biggest surprise is successors of Sri Krishna Devaraya are introduced. From here on actual confusion starts- who is chasing whom, who is loving whom? Meanwhile, Varun accidentally lands in his grandfather’s house whom he actually hates for a reason, better you should not know. More than story or drama, the second half is for the most part is filled with chasing sequences. Ufff…. movie ends with Varun Tej taking a ‘great’ decision regarding whom to marry…
Varun Tej has improved as an actor. His comedy timing was good. The young hero looked handsome and seems like he worked hard for dances and fights. However, Varun will become almost dumb in second half with numerous characters are introduced and many sub-plots are forcefully incorporated. Lavnaya Tripathi was gorgeous in traditional outfits. She makes entry only during per-interval, but has pulled off the princess role quite efficiently. Hebah Patel was decent. She makes good impact in first half. Prudhviraj, Raghubabu and Srinivas Reddy were funny. Other artists were okay.
Gopi Mohan penned the first half entertainingly, at least for Spain episodes. However, he tried to ‘come out of his safe zone’ by penning ‘different second half’, rather than regular formula of bringing hero and his batch to heroine’s house and hero finding a bakra to resolve all issues to marry heroine. The second half can’t be described in words. Unnecessarily, ‘Sri Krishna Devaraya’ family episode is included only to further torture audiences. Overall, it’s complete failure of writing department. Srinu Vaitla should have at least asked changes in second half. It would have been better, if they had opted to regular formula story-telling. Cinematographer KV Guhan has captured exotic locations of Spain exquisitely. Mickey J Meyer composed songs were pretty ordinary and background score too is unimpressive. Editor should have chopped at least half an hour of the film, so that our opinion would be a bit different. Producers needlessly spent heavy budget. However, the episodes other than the Spain schedule appeared flat, perhaps due to less budget spent for them.
Except for Spain episodes, the film hardly has any episodes to cherish. Better avoid watching this film, or else you will feel bad later…
