mithai got quite a buzz and anticipation after the movie trailer moved viewers. The film stars Rahul Ramakrishna and Priyadarshi in the lead roles. Touted as a dark comedy, this movie released today. let’s see how it is.
venkat sai(rahul ramakrishna) plans to get married, but things take a depressing turn when she loses her job and her house is robbed. He seeks the help of his close friend Jani (Priyadarshi) to track down the culprit after learning that his fiancee’s necklace is missing.
The duo begin to track down the thief, but must overcome numerous challenges in the process. Will they successfully get out and catch the thief? what are the challenges they face? the answers to these questions form the rest of the film’s story.
Sadly, this movie has very little in its way. One of them would be the opening sequences, which show Sai’s lifestyle and her friendship with Jani.
rahul ramakrishna and priyadarshi present very natural performances. they go to great lengths to bring this poorly written dark comedy to life. his dialogue delivery and diction can entertain a part of the audience.
The background score is fine in places. it’s good to hear a song and it showed up well on the screen.
This film lacks a proper storyline, and furthermore, the unconventional script will start to irritate the audience before you even get halfway through. most of the scenes seem repetitive and are further confused with a bland narrative.
One might hope that the movie would make some kind of sense after the interval, but what follows is a tedious story, which goes on and on and on. the subplots in the second half are useless and irritating.
To say the least, there is very little connection between the actual story and what we actually see on screen.
the director, prashant kumar, chose a decent story, but the film needed better treatment to make it look more attractive. due care should have been taken with the script.
the musical director, vivek sagar, came up with a good background score. adds more intensity to a couple of scenes in the first half.
the camera work is clean and the production values are adequate. the art direction department did a pretty decent job too.
Overall, Mithai is a poorly executed dark comedy that has very little standing in its way. the movie starts out fine but loses the thread after 15 minutes or so. It’s a steep drop from there and even natural performances from Rahul Ramakrishna and Priyadarshi couldn’t save the movie, making it a sub-par movie this weekend.
