140 Minutes Of Torture
What Is the Film About?
Raju (Kalyaan Dhev) works as a singer in Mass Bar, a small bar. A techie Meenakshi (Rachita Ram) is after him desperately trying to woo him while he resists and Insults her. She even gets ready to sleep with him to convince him to love her. Why is she so desperate? What is in it that has impressed her so much? Forms the rest.
Kalyaan Dhev has got a bad review for his performance in his first film, Vijetha and he did not improve a bit for his second as well. We get to see him with a single Expression throughout the film irrespective of what is happening.
There is zero effort from his side failing to emote even for simplest of scenes.
The dubbing also looks so out of place with out proper lip sync. The only appreciable part is his decent dance movements.
Super Machi – firstly let’s begin with the title. There is no justification for naming the film as such except for the fact that it sounds good and goes after a famous song. Coming to the story, it is a bundle of several illogical, silly, and comical errors that hit the audience like a thunderbolt.
In the first half, we see an IT girl earning more than 1 Lac per month trying to woo a singer at a cheap bar. For anyone, that should be a biggest lottery but our hero says No and insults her.
The girl gets ready to sleep with him but what we see is some unbelievable sermons from the hero and later his family (Sorry for the Spoiler). There is a twist in the interval which makes you feel a bit better hoping something good in the second half.
But then, what follows later is a gigantic farce. Without any Suspense, the twist will be never revealed. It exists just for the sake of existing. We see the same love story happening in reverse in the flashback mode. And there is a father track to connect both the love tracks. The father track is a joke on the intellect of the audience. Once that Tamasha is completed, a pointless fight is thrown out of nowhere and the trauma ends for the audience.
Finally, the best part of Super Machi is the relief we feel that it is over and the worst part is the fact that it existed and someone spent so much of time and money on it.
Rachitha Ram, a star heroine in Kannada film industry is the only saving grace of the film. She got a dumb character but still came up with a decent performance. She looked good in the first half but with so many closeup shots in the second, she looked a bit. Also, the traditional wear of the second half did not look well on her.
Naresh and Pragathi played Hero’s parents. They are like too loud as usual. Rajendra Prasad looked silly in a character that is partly routine and partly dumb. Tanikella Bharani and Ajay are seen in most clueless and forgettable characters.
Music and Other Departments?
Puli Vasu, the director of the film has come up with a silly subject and executed it equally bad. The less we talk about it, the better it is. The director is a TV Serial director in the past. With due respect, this is a bad product than some of the worst TV Serials ever.
Thaman has composed music for the film and is the only savior of the film to some extent. But then, all the songs are like classic examples of wrong placement. Some of the dialogues are decently written. The camera work is okay while most locations looked repetitive. Even at 140 minutes, the movie feels excruciatingly long.
