Sri Divya, who is best known for her roles in movies like Manasara and Bus Stop, is back with a female-centric film titled Mallela Teeramlo Sirimalle Puvvu (MTSP). Directed by debutante Ramaraju, the film offers a message to the society. It has brilliant performances by lead actors and sound production values, but dragging narration mars its beauty. The family audience will like it very much.
Mallela Teeramlo Sirimalle Puvvu is a romance drama that lack commercial elements and has low entertainment quotient. Sri Divya's performance is the main attraction in the film. Ramaraju's interesting story and brilliant dialogues, Bal Reddy's camera work and Pavan Kumar's background score are its other highlights. The slow-paced narration is the biggest drawback of the movie.
Debutante Ramaraju has chosen a philosophical subject to prove his mettle and he has very good grip over the happenings on the screen. But he should have taken care of slow-paced narration. He has even penned brilliant dialogues for the movie, but many of them are very hard to be digested by laymen. Moreover, he has completely forgotten the commercial elements, which would helped him to make it more interesting.
Lakshmi (Sri Divya) is a traditional girl, who marries a guy chosen by her father (Rao Ramesh). But she soon realises that her husband is greedy about money, which causes a turmoil in her. At this juncture, she comes across a guy named Kranthi (Kranthi), who is a lyricist for Telugu films. She develops a liking for him and her friendship with Kranthi soon turns into complicated relationship.
Since she is traditional girl, Lakshmi has some apprehensions about society and traditions. Will she follow her heart? What is her husband's response? Answer to these questions form crux of the story.
Sri Divya's Performance
Sri Divya has a very good scope in the film as it is a female oriented movie. It is a tailor-made role for her and she has delivered a brilliant performance. He is at complete ease in all romantic and sentimental scenes. She looks very beautiful in sarees.
Actor Kranthi has also got good screen presence in the movie Mallela Teeramlo Sirimalle Puvvu and he has done justice to it. Other artistes have also given good performances in their respective roles.
Bal Reddy's camera work is excellent and a visual treat. Pavan Kumar's background score is good and helps the director to elevate the intensity of several emotional scenes. Ramaraju's philosophical dialogues are also good. Overall, Mallela Teeramlo Sirimalle Puvvu is a decent family entertainer, but its snail-paced narration tests your patient.
