Telugu movie Mental Madhilo (Mental Madilo) starring Sree Vishnu and Nivetha Pethuraj has received positive reviews and ratings from the audience.
Mental Madhilo is a romantic drama, written and directed by Vivek Athreya. Raj Kandukuri of Pelli Choopulu fame has produced the movie under his banner Dharmapatha Creations. The movie has been awarded a U/A certificate by the censor board and it has runtime of 2.02 hours.
Story: It is all about Aravind Krishna (Sree Vishnu), who is a shy, innocent and confused guy. His parents decide to marry him off to Swetcha (Nivetha Pethuraj), who is uber confident urban girl. Both get along and the girl tries to help him overcome his shortcomings. But at this juncture, he leaves for Mumbai on work and he ends up getting attracted to Renuka (Amrutha Srinivasan), whose character is similar to him. What happens next forms the crux of the story.
Analysis: Mental Madhilo is a simple romance drama, but it breaks free from stereotypes. It is an intricate character study of three different lives and the director has made sure that it is an entertaining watch. The first half of the film is quite engaging, but the second half is bit dragging and slow, say the viewers.
Performances: Sree Vishnu, Nivetha Pethuraj and Amrutha Srinivasan have delivered good performances, which are the highlights of Mental Madhilo. The hero's chemistry with the heroines is another attraction of the movie. Shivaji Raja and other supporting artistes have done justice to their roles, say the filmgoers.
Technical: Mental Madhilo has rich production values. Prashanth R Vihari's songs and background score, beautiful cinematography are the attractions on the technical front, say the audiences.
