0

Akkineni Akhil is striving hard to score a big commercial success. After three unsuccessful attempts, he is now looking for novel scripts that will explore his full potential as an actor. He is currently working with director Bommarillu Bhaskar for a love cum family entertainer which is on sets at present. The principal shooting of this untitled film is now progressing at a brisk pace.

Meanwhile, he has given nod to yet another flop director Prasanth Varma who recently bagged a huge debacle with Kalki. The AWE director has reportedly penned a gripping crime thriller with an interesting backdrop. Akhil is impressed with the script and narration and agreed to team up with him after wrapping up his current project. Nivedha Thomas is in talks to play the leading lady in this thriller which is likely to go on floors next year.

Akhil’s career is in doldrums with no proper hit so far. He is aiming to make a good comeback with these two films.

Jr NTR rejects and Akhil asked for more time?

0

We have revealed a couple of days earlier that Mahesh Babu has rejected even the firth version of the script developed by Parasuram. After delivering a super hit like Geetha Govindam, many felt that this director will be breaking into the big club easily, but that is not happening anytime soon.

A fresh update is that when Parasuram narrated the same story to Jr NTR, the talented actor who is busy with #RRR has also rejected it. We hear that NTR didn’t like the script because of its near-coincidence with many known stories that dealt with corruption in the society. Unfazed by the rejection, the Geetha Govindam director has narrated the same subject to Akhil, a source revealed.

As Akhil is actually busy planning his dad’s birthday celebration that is going to take place in Spain, for which he has already taken the flight, he hasn’t given any clarity to Parasuram over the project. After returning from Spain, he will be sitting with Parasuram one more time before making a decision.

Given his flashback, Parasuram’s films contain routine stories with enhanced comedy. But the present generation audiences are not liking such movies, though Geetha Govindam might have run due to Vijay Devarakonda’s star power. Time for Parasuram to recheck his stories.

Akkineni Akhil, who made his debut in 2015, did only three films in four years. After the debacle of Akhil, he took two years gap for his second film Hello and his third film Majnu released in 2019.

He definitely needs a star director to deliver a big hit that could provide the much need impetus to his career. He is yet to take a call on his next project. Though there are several speculations making rounds in industry circles, it is learnt that Akhil is looking for a chance to work with top director.

Will Akhil’s promotions help Mr Majnu?

0

Akhil Akkineni tasted his third debacle in a row with Mr Majnu. Though the film opened on a decent note, the word of mouth had a huge impact and the collections dropped down on Saturday and Sunday. The foot fall during weekdays have been pathetic and the film is expected to lose half of the investment in its final run. Akhil and Mr Majnu team are busy touring across the theatres of AP currently.

With no releases this Friday and with no noted films release except Yatra next week, the unit of Mr Majnu hopes that the audience may knock the theatres to watch Mr Majnu during this dry season so that the film can recover some of the losses. Akhil during his speeches revealed that Mr Majnu is his best work till date. We have to wait to see if this success tour can make an impact at the box-office for Mr Majnu.

Venky Atluri directed the film and Nidhhi Agerwal played the heroine. BVSN Prasad produced this romantic saga and SS Thaman is the music director.

US box office : Mr. Majnu registers low premiers collections

0

Akkineni Akhil’s romantic entertainer Mr. Majnu released to mixed reports this Friday. While the openings in Telugu states are decent, the overseas start is quite underwhelming as per trade analysts.

In USA, Mr. Majnu managed to collect a meagre $ 81K from its Thursday premiers which is disappointingly less than Akhil’s first two films ( Hello : $ 214K , Akhil $ 90K). Despite good pre release buzz, Mr. Majnu surprisingly started off on a moderate note. The film needs to pick well over the weekend to earn a respectable gross in the first week.

Akhil’s performance as lover boy has been receiving good reviews, but the predictable storyline and flat narration turned out to be the undoing aspects for the film. Niddhi Aggerwal is the film’s leading lady. BVSN Prasad is the producer.

Mr Majnu – Akhil as Casanova Excels , But..

Mr Majnu Review

Telugu360 Rating 2.75/5

Story:

Nikky ( Nidhhi Agerwal) , an NRI Girl in UK, has high expectations about the man she is going to marry.  She comes across Vikky ( Akhil ) ,another NRI who is doing Master’s in London. Initially Nikky dislikes Vikky as he is a bigtime flirt and a Casanova. When both travel to India for their cousins’ marriage, she realizes his true side, proposes to him a two month love relationship.  Vikky always discourages her saying he’s not suitable match for her, rejects after the 60 day period.  Hurt by his words, Nikky returns to UK. After a while, Vikky wants back her in his life and travels to UK to meet her. Rest of the story is about his attempts to convince her, how she reacts to his deeds.

Analysis:

Mr. Majnu takes off in London showcasing Akhil’s flirting talent, with scenes elevating him as a man for whom every girl would drool for. After a peppy introduction song, and few youth appealing scenes the introduction of the hero heroines completes. Story now moves to India and a whole galore of characters from three families are introduced at this point.  Vikky is the S/O an industrialist Mr. Krishna Prasad (Jaya Prakash) and KP’s younger brother is Shiva Prasad (Rao Ramesh ) , Nagababu plays the role of heroine Nikky’s father. Director quickly establishes the characters and their characterization but due to too many characters in three families combined, it will be a bit confusing initially for audience to get hold of who is who. Movie runs on feel good family films template for a while. Vikky  Nikky thread is fresh and chemistry between them worked out.  However, couple of forcible sentiment scenes with lengthy dialogues make audience feel uneasy. Other than that minor complaint, first half is good with right emotions and decent chemistry between the lead pair, cool songs.

Once the story falls back to UK, novelty that the director bought to the table in the first half goes for toss. Now it is hero’s turn to convince heroine to like him and the whole process is very formulaic – no surprise element in the second half. By introducing Hyper Aadi as ‘piracy pullarao’, who sells piracy telugu films CDs in London, director tries to infuse some comedy but succeeds partially. In first half it was Priya Darshi who tries some lighter moments. With soul being missing, the 2nd half runs flat and predictably.  Climax of the film is just okay.

On Technical side, S.  Thaman’s background score is good. George Williams’s cinematography is very good, the entire product looked glossy with high production values by SVCC ( Sri Venkateswara Cine Chitra)

Performances:

Akhil shows his strengths in ease in body language, dancing skills and his styling is very cool. He acted well in regular scenes, but in couple of emotional scenes he couldn’t get the shot right. For a 3 film old youngster, it is absolutely Okay. Heroine Nidhhi Agerwal is cool as urbane girl , adequate for this film. Huge number of seasoned character artistes are roped in as hero heroine’s family members,and  as friends.

Positives:

  • Hero Akhil’s effort
  • First half‘s feel good moments
  • High production values
  • Three Good songs

Negatives:

  • Forced emotions at times
  • Conversational (about Love) second half
  • More comedy would have helped

Verdict :

Mr Majnu is an average fare on a whole. Akhil Akkineni has been succeeded in a role which is apt for his age. Director Venky is able to engage family audience with emotional scenes in first half, passes in setting up the right conflict point towards the Interval, but falls short in conflict resolution in 2nd half.  Overall, this film has mix of family and youthful elements, you may give it a try.
