Telugu actor Prabhas' much-hyped movie Mirchi, which happens to be the next biggest outing after Rebel, has hit the marque today. Debuntant Koratala Siva, who has earlier penned story and dialogues for several hit films, is turning director with this film, which has soared up the viewers' curiosity to sky high. It surely lives up to their expectations with its sound production elements and good performances by lead actors.
Mirchi is a romantic action entertainer, which is rich in commercial aspects. Prabhas' electrifying performance is the main highlight of the movie. Koratala Siva's beautiful story and punch dialogues, Devi Sri Prasad's trendy music, Madhi's beautiful picturisation, amazing choreography of dance and action sequences, Brahmanandam and Raghubabu's comedy, beautiful artwork, costumes and locations are the highlights of the movie. The predictable plot with some outdated and cliched scenes and weak climax are its drawbacks.
Koratala Siva has chosen a good emotional story, which is the paramount of the movie Mirchi. It has fast-paced narration and the director has got a good grip over the tempo. The first half of the film has two stunning fights and three songs (two romantic and a title track) and a few comedy sequences, and it has all other masala elements to make you glued to the screens. The fight and twist at interval bang set the tone for the story. The second half is very important.
After the interval bang, the movie Mirchi goes into flashback mode and it turns very emotional. The second half has three sentimental, romantic and trendy songs and an amazing fight. The movie reaches the climax with a sad twist, which is heart-wrenching, and should be watched on screen.
Jai (Prabhas) is an architect based in Milan, where he falls in love with Manasa (Richa) at first sight. He returns to his village in Palnadu area to reform his violent family background. With the help of bank manager Veera Pratap (Brahmanandam), Jai makes good advancement in winning the appreciation of everyone in Manasa's family.
Here unfolds an interesting twist in the story. Jai shares strong connection with a man named Deva (Sathya Raj), who is an arch enemy of Manasa's family. Meanwhile, Manasa also realises that Jai is romantically linked with another woman named Vennela (Anushka). What happens next will form the crux of the story, which should be watched on screen.
