Mr 420 has neither a proper story nor does it have an engaging screenplay. It is a movie with illogical sequences. At least, audience expected that the film could hold their attention with comic scenes but with the poorly-written sequences, the movie miserably fails to make the audience to sit till the end.
A village boy Krishna (Ganesh) loses his grandmother and his uncle (Rangayana Raghu) takes him to the city assuring him a luxurious life. After realising that his uncle is a petty thief, he walks out of his house but ends on the street, as all his money and clothes are stolen.
This incident makes him to change his earlier stand and decides to follow the words of his uncle. But as per his girlfriend Rukmini's (Pranitha) order, he changes again but sooner than later he lands in a big trouble. How he tries to handle the situation and comes clean form the remaining part of the story.
There is nothing special about lead stars Ganesh and Pranitha's performance. Rangayana Raghu, at parts, crosses the limit and irks the audience with his acting. It is only Sadhu Kokila, who completely justifies his role. His scenes are entertaining. The audience can only enjoy his scenes and rest others are silly.
The entire blame should be taken by director Pradeep Raj for his lifeless story and boring screenplay. He has also failed to take the best out of his important characters. V Harikrishna's tracks won't be in your ears for long and R Giri's cinematography is okay. However, BA Madhu's dialogues are excellent.
Verdict: Mr 420 is a boring flick.
