Mirchi Review

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 the 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.

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 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.

Apart from good story and screenplay, what makes Koratal Siva's work great is his characterisation, which is brilliant. He has managed to give equal importance and scope to all characters and you will remember them by their names even after you walk out of the theatres.

As an Italian-based architect, Rebel Star Prabhas has delivered brilliant performance in Mirchi. There is more maturity in his acting in this movie when compared to his previous flicks. He looks superb in action, comedy, dance and sentimental sequences. It is he who steals the show. He is the showman.

Anushka Shetty has good scope in the movie and her role is crucial for the story. She appears in the flashback story in the second half of the movie Mirchi. She impresses you with her glamour in songs like 'Idhedho Bagundhe...' and 'Darlingey...'
