Several movies have already been made on backdrop of college in Tollywood, but very few strike the right chord. Sundeep Kishan's latest outing Mahesh, which is the dubbed version of Tamil film Yaaruda Mahesh, is one such movie, which fails to meet the viewers' expectations that it had created prior its release. Despite having all commercial elements, the movie fails to impress the audiences.
Mahesh is an adult comedy with lots of double entendres and some sex gags. Jagan's acting is the main attraction in the film. Gopi Sundar's music, Raana's picturisation, a few comedy scenes and funny one-liners are other highlights of the movie. The weak script, aimless and dragging narration are the big drawbacks of the movie.
Madhan Kumar has chosen tried and tested story of a coming-of-age, which has been brought to screens several times in the Tollywood. Moreover, the director has failed to breath any freshness in the script, which runs aimlessly in the first half and suddenly turns predictable in the second half of the film.
The narration in the first half is quite slow and literally hops with a search of direction. The audience feel like watching a TV serial, and a few adult jokes keep them entertained in this portion. Post interval bang, some illogical comedy scenes of Mahesh make the viewers laugh, but the narration becomes quite predictable. The climax is big let down.
