Behind the Scenes:

Mithai is yet another small film which has garnered decent buzz after a good Trailer. The Dark Comedy starring Rahul Ramakrishna and Priyadarshi in the lead roles is releasing today alongside NTR Mahanayakudu. Let us see how Mithai is received by the audience


Venkat Sai (Rahul Ramakrishna) plans to get settled by marrying. In a shocking turn of events, he loses his job and his house gets robbed in which his fiance’s necklace is missing. He has to find the necklace in three days if not his marriage is canceled. He takes the help of his friend, Jani (Priyadarshi) to track it and in the process is encountered with numerous challenges. Rest of the story is how they nab the thief and what are the challenges they meet in the process.
Star Shine:

The film as expectedly revolves around Rahul Ramakrishna and Priyadarshi. They came up with natural performances and tried to liven up the proceedings with no help from the script. Their performance and dialogue delivery are the only relief in the film. Rest of the characters – Kamal Kamaraju, Ajay Ghosh, and Gayatri Gupta have been offered little roles and they are okay.


Director Prashant Kumar picked up a decent story and got two good performers needed to pull it off. But then, he let himself and the movie down by worst possible treatment. The screenplay has been very disappointing and except for a couple of scenes, nothing works. Vivek Sagar’s background score is good and it worked here and there. One song is okay. Cinematography by Ravi Varman is neat. Editing by Gaeey BH is disappointing. The Production Values are okay.


The first half of the film has only good things in the opening sequence wherein Venkat Sai’s lifestyle and his friendship with Jani are appealing. And from there, the director tested the patience of the audience with all sorts of a boring screenplay and poor scenes. If one expected the second half to be better, it is even worse. There are numerous sub-plots which come without any purpose and irritates the audience. The climax has been equally disappointing. Finally, Mithai is a boring and tedious watch.
