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.

Mr Majnu : Naalo Neeku – An emotional break up

0

The third single Naalo Neeku is out today and it is an emotional break up song rendered with heartfelt vocals by Shreya Goshal and Kaala Bhairava. The sorrowful lyrics reflect the depressed state of separated lovers who feel the pain of missing each other. Srimani did a decent job with his effective lines and Thaman’s tune reminds of the ‘Tholi Prema’ song in Varun Tej’s Tholi Prema. Unlike the first two songs which were instant chartbusters, the third song might take time to grow on audience.

Mr Majnu nears completion, still no clarity on release date

0

Akkineni Akhil’s upcoming romantic drama Mr. Majnu was initially planned for December last week release. But, the makers have deferred their plans as a slew of films are slated for release in December. With Sankranthi season already packed with biggies, Akhil’s producer might look further for a good release date.

There were reports that Mr.Majnu might release for Republic Day. However, there is no official confirmation on this. The second part of NTR’s biopic is releasing on January 24th. So, Akhil and his team are still in a dilemma to lock the release date. February is not an ideal month for releasing big ticket films. Despite the shooting formalities are nearing completion, the makers are not yet fully confident of the release date. So, they haven’t announced it till now.

As Akhil is very desperate to score a much needed hit, he doesn’t want to take chance with the release date. He has asked the producer to take his own time and lock a perfect date that will help the film’s openings. So, we might need to wait some more time to know when Mr. Majnu arrives. Niddhiwal is the female lead and Venky Atluri is the director.
