Mental Madhilo Movie Review :

After delivering a successful movie like Pellichoopulu, the popular producer Raj Kandukuri is coming up with another different movie Mental Madhilo starring Sree Vishnu and Nivetha Pethuraj. Vivek Atreya is the young director making his directional debut with this drama. Let’s see the storyline.


 Story: Aravind Krishna (Sri Vishnu) is a shy, innocent  and confused guy by birth. Whenever there are two options in front of him, he falls into a dilemma.  His parents decided to get him married and in this process he  meets a girl  Swetcha (Nivetha Pethuraj), who is uber confident urban girl and he gets close to her. One day, Aravind Krishna is forced to leave for Mumbai and there he meets yet another girl Renu (Amrutha Srinivasan), whose character is similar to him and also gets attracted to her. Aravind falls into confusion again to choose between Swetcha and Renu.  Which girl Aravind choose? To get this answer, one should watch the movie on silver screen.


Plus Points:

  • Performances
  • Entertainment
  • BGM

Minus Points:

  • Slow Narration

Performances:  Sri Vishnu  delivers his best as  a lover boy role in this film. He shows intense performances in the movie. He’s pitch perfect in his role throughout the film and the best thing about him is that he doesn’t even have to try too hard to make you empathise with him. Mental Madhilo  introduces a terrific actress in Nivetha Pethuraj to Telugu movie, and it’s easily one of the best performances of the year. Like Ritu Varma in Pelli Choopulu, Nivetha Pethuraj too becomes the voice of reason in Mental Madhilo and she anchors the whole film with her verve. The chemistry between Nivetha and Sree Vishnu are highlighted. Amrutha Srinivasan as Renuka delivers a solid performance. Shivaji Raja is perfect as a middle-class father and he also entertained everyone big time. The rest of the cast perform accordingly.


Technical:  The film has a predictable and simple storyline. The dialogues are meaningful and are apt for the situations. The production values are rich. Prashanth R Vihari's songs and background score are highlighted.  He fills up the film with his soulful music.  Cinematographer does a fabulous job in setting the right mood for romantic entertainer. Mental Madhilo is  not a visual film. Its beauty lies in its conversations, intricate details about people and their personalities. Since the entire  movie is based on effect and its consequences, it gets predictable as it unfolds, and Vivek Athreya, who wrote and  helmed the movie, doesn’t do much to change the rhythm or its tone, especially in the second half. The editing is good. 


 Analysis: The story of the film is simple but impressive and one of the major highlights.   Mental Madhilo has sufficient ingredients to make it work at box office. The film is quite a predictable right from the start.  Plus points are the performances of Sree  Vishnu and Nivetha Pethuraj . A big thumbs up for Mental Madhilo. Love trumps confusion, in the end, after all. On a whole, Mental Medhilo has elements and intent that attract family crowds.
