On the whole, Mukunda is an ok launch pad for Varun Tej. This handsome mega family hero has good screen presence and is set for a bright future in Tollywood. But other factors like lack of comedy, entertainment and romance limit Varun’s debut to an extent. Finally, if you go in without any expectations and an open mind, you might end up liking this different attempt.
Mukunda is a film that deals with municipality politics and has a strange conflict point of hero upsetting villain for the sake of a friend. Screenplay and lack of direct conflict for hero/villain and passive romance thread dilutes the impact. We have to wait and see how ordinary moviegoer embrace the movie.
