Mugguru Review – Mugguru Telugu Movie Review, Rating: Mugguru is the latest film from the production of legendary producer D. Rama Naidu, who is making low budget entertainers these days. Director V.N. Aditya has altered his name as Nagendra V. Aditya as per numerology to get back to his hay days. Here is the review of Mugguru…
Pavan (Navadeep), Maruti (Rahul) and Anji (Srinivas Avasarala) are three friends, who don’t have good educational or financial background. They hope to settle big in life by doing anything. They plan to kidnap JP (Ahuti Prasad), but in turn help him out of danger.
JP gets impressed by them and offers them jobs in his Malaysian company and also promises to get them married to his three daughters (Shradha Das, Sanjana and Sowmya). These three goes to Malaysia and impresses JP’s daughter and when things seems a cake walk for them in comes ‘trouble’ in the form of Bala Tripura Sundari (Reema Sen).
Mugguru is a desperate attempt to make an enjoyable comedy. The director tried his best to make audience laugh right from the start. Unfortunately none of the scenes or tricks carried the ‘punch’ and ‘power’ to make audiences smile. Almost every scene fell flat or annoyed audience, who might laugh at the director’s helplessness.
First half is completely dedicated to establish the plot and few foolish tricks of the three lead men to trap their three girls. Although the interval twist did raise some expectations, the reason given for it right after the interval looked cheap and unfunny. That flashback part was dragged and dragged to eat out enough time to get into the climax.
Climax depends completely on Brahmanandam who makes desperate attempt to make this film look like a comedy, but he too fails due to the very bad writing and unimaginative direction.
Navadeep is good and is the standout performer among the three heroes. Rahul is weak in every department and hardly an actor material. Avasarala Srinivas didn’t have scope to exhibit his skills.
Shradha Das looked hot, Sanjana is mildly hot and Sowmya is anything but hot. All the three didn’t have much screen time except for dancing in a couple of songs and showing off their curves in few titillating scenes.
Reema Sen didn’t look as bad as in this film in the past. Shivaji did an extended guest role which doesn’t make any impact. Brahmanandam did his best to save this film from being a disaster and Ali’s comedy hardly works. Ahuti Prasad and others are just there to fill in few characters.
Music by Koti is as loud as the comedy in this film. Background score is bad. Cinematography and editing reminds you of masala films that were made in the late eighties. V.N. Aditya once again fails as a director. His attempt at comedy proves a fact that he can’t handle comedy.
Final Word: It will be hard to find at least “Mugguru” who will say ‘three’ good things about this film.
Box office verdict: Making on a shoestring budget is the only plus point for this film to survive at the box office.
