Movie: Meda Meedha Abbayi
Direction: G Prajith
Behind the Screens
Allari Naresh had delivered Eleven Back to Back disaster films and his market is getting eroded with every film. The Comedy Star had pinned high hopes on his Today Release, Meda Meedha Abbayi to get back to winning ways. Let us see how the movie fares with the audience.
Srinu (Allari Naresh) is a Movie Fanatic and a failure student which comes to Hyderabad to become a Film Director. He is in love with his neighbour Sindhu (Nikhila Vimal) and keeps buffing to his friends about their fake love story. When Srinu goes to Hyderabad, Sindhu is also missing. Everyone thinks that they have eloped together. What happens next in their lives form the rest of the story?
Allari Naresh tried to keep his calm and stick to the character. He delivered a decent performance as an easy going guy. Nikhila Vimal looks okay and performed alright. Jabardasth fame Hyper Aadi enthralled with some amazing comedy and one-liners. Srinivas Avasarala is seen in a crucial role and he is good. Satyam Rajesh and others as Hero’s Friends are okay.
Meda Meedha Abbayi is the Official Remake of Malayalam Blockbuster, Oru Vadakkan Selfie. But then, after watching the film, one cannot wonder how the movie worked so much in Malayalam. The storyline of the movie lacks proper depth and is stuffed with too many cinematic liberties. The screenplay is even disappointing. The first half of Meda Meedha Abbayi has some decent moments here and there. The scenes between Allari Naresh and Hyper Aadi have worked well. The twist that comes before the interval is interesting. Things go further bad in the second half with too much of drag. Meda Meedha Abbayi is a Poor Remake of a Blockbuster even with the Original Crew.
Director G. Prajith has come up with a weak storyline and even weaker narration. Music composed by Shaan Rahman is okay. Editing by Nandamuri Hari is very disappointing and a good 30 minutes portion can be chopped off easily. The camera work by Kunjuni S Kumar is disappointing and the Production Values are Average.
