Two small yet significant films are releasing this Friday. They are Meeku Mathrame Cheptha and Aaviri. The former marks director Tharun Bhascker’s acting debut whereas the latter is Allari Ravibabu’s new flick.
Among the two, Meeku Makthrame Cheptha has got the bigger release. It has more shows and better timings compared to Aaviri. The only reason it has managed that is due to Vijay Deverakonda. It is the first production from the young star.
With production, it is mostly a win-win situation when the said film is different from the routine. The failure doesn’t affect that star, but if it’s a success, it also adds to the brand value. One just needs to look at Nani’s Awe in that regard.
However, Meeku Mathrame Chepthe is no high-concept film which becomes critic-proof for the fans. It is a new-age comedy with a unique idea for the premise. If the comedy clicks, all is well, but if it doesn’t, there will be negativity around it.
So far, despite the visible, aggressive promotion from the team and producer Vijay Deverakonda, the excitement in the audience is missing. The bookings are inadequate. It is now up to word of mouth to do the trick.
Aaviri needs Raviabu to be back to his prime form. Otherwise, its fate would be sealed on the first day itself. It has more to do with the lackluster fares from the director in the past.Don't MissAction Movie Review - Thrills In Parts, Bland OverallBOTTOM LINE Thrills In Parts, Bland Overall OUR RATING2.25/5 CENSOR 'U/A' Certified, 2 hrs 38...Don't MissIndication of Stained Relations Between Jagan and KCR?The other day, there were reports that things are not going well between both the...Don't MissTenali Ramakrishna BA BL Review -Sloppy Courtroom Drama BOTTOM LINE Sloppy Courtroom Drama OUR RATING2/5 CENSOR 'UA' - 2 hrs 08 mins...Don't MissJr NTR: The Favourite Topic of Outgoing TDP LeadersAs Chandrababu Naidu sat for TDP's First Major Protest this term, the Ruling Party seems...Don't MissVintage Babu Is Back?One after the other, there are continuous leaks from the sets of 'Sarileru Neekevvaru'.
