The pre-talk before the release of Maduve Mane was that the movie would be next Mungaru Male and it would give relief to Ganesh's sagging career. However, the movie starts off promisingly but ends unconvincingly. The poor script written by director himself has played the spoilsport thereby giving yet another blow to the Golden Star.
Suraj (Ganesh) meets a bride named Suma (Shraddha Arya) in a train and falls instantly for her. From the word go, he impresses her family with his tricks but keeps on irritating her with his love proposal. It goes without saying that he easily makes to her wedding along with them. But he does not get the desired results, as she is adamant about her choice, who is an encounter specialist. The story gets a twist by the end of first half, as Suma's beau sends her with him. In the second part, there lies quite a few twists and an unexpected one in the penultimate scene.
The first half of the movie is entertaining. Sharan, Tabala Naani along with Ganesh make it an interesting affair with their witty liners. Indeed, the scenes between Ganesh and Shraddha Arya are good in the first half even though it is not new in the Golden Star's movies. However, the second half becomes a nightmare, as the audience would wonder where the story was heading. The boring narration and illogical scenes test the viewers' patience. Though, some twists come as a surprising element, the connectivity factor disappoints the fans.
Maduve Mane completly relies on Ganesh's ability. The role is tailor-made for him and he has done complete justice to his character. Shraddha Arya is lookalike of Pooja Gandhi and she is okay. Sharan and Tabala Nani have given their usual best to their roles. Rest other characters are good in their limited roles.
Technically, Shekar Chandra's cinematography is good but the biggest drawback of the film is Manikanth Kadri's music. It fails completely to evoke any feeling from the audience. Director Sunilkumar Singh, who has also penned the dialogues, should be patted in only that department. Though he successfully manages to entertain the audience in the first half, he has miserably lost control on the script in the second. Had he taken some more time to write the screenplay, Maduve Mane might have been a different product.
