Mr. Perfect Movie Review – Mr. Perfect Review – Mr. Perfect Rating, Telugu Movie Review: Prabhas who bagged a decent hit with his previous film Darling is back again with the same genre of film Mr. Perfect. It is a brand Dil Raju film targeted at families and female audience. Let’s get into the details in Mr. Perfect review…
Vicky (Prabhas) is a guy who wants to live his life according to his wishes. When his parents fix his marriage with Priya (Kajal), who Vicky feels is a complete mismatch to him. And he rejects the proposal. He finds another girl Maggie (Taapsee) who is identical with his character. But her father (Prakash Raj) says that he is not a perfect groom for his daughter. He challenges that he can impress none with his character and ideology. Vicky takes up the challenge. But does he succeed in it? Find the answer on silver screen.
Mr. Perfect is a film that is developed on a single point that we have to see that everyone around us is happy rather making ourselves happy. Like every Dil Raju film, this one too preaches about the family values and human bonding. Although the basic idea is good the film failed on the execution part.
There are not many heart touching scenes in the film. Every character compromises at one point or the other. Realizations, discussions, relations, experiences… this forms the screenplay of this movie. Everybody gets into preachy mode all the time and bores you to the core. Situations are forced and therefore the film lacked soul. We hardly find any scene which is at least near to ‘perfect’, leave alone perfect.
Saying so, it is for family audiences who don’t mind watching same old dramatic scenes time and again. If you are game for clichéd formulaic films, then Mr. Perfect is just for you. If you are looking for freshness in theme and characterizations then two hours boredom is guaranteed.
The film falls short on comedy aspect too. Brahmanandam and Raghu Babu try too hard to make you laugh. The protagonist’s arguments about a perfect life are pretty confusing. He actually compromises every time but people around him say that he has not compromised and was correct! Phew!!
Another biggest drawback is the pace of the film. It is snail paced and lacks energy. Scenes during the climax drag with too many conversations. On a whole, Mr. Perfect has too many defects. Only the formulaic presentation and family drama should help it to sustain at the box office.
Prabhas performance is fine. He did his best to pull off a character which is low on energy. Actually, this role didn’t suit his persona. Prabhas is best when he is active and energetic. Uttering pages of dialogs and using less muscle isn’t his forte. Kajal looked good in few scenes and bad in few. Inconsistent makeup is the main drawback. Her performance is good though. May be she is getting typecast these days.
Taapsee is Okay. She dubbed in her own voice. Prakash Raj did this type of role in every alternate film. He looked bored. Murali Mohan and K. Vishwanadh scare you every time they open their mouth. They keep on preaching moral values of life.
Brahmanandam is routine and Raghubabu is loud. There is nothing much to say about the remaining star cast.
None of the songs are good on ears. Devi Sri Prasad’s tunes lacked novelty and energy. Background score is partly good. Editing by Marthand K. Venkatesh is standard. Cinematography by Vijay Chakravarthy is fine. Dialogs written by Abburi Ravi are good in parts. One can notice that he is just rephrasing Trivikram’s dialogs.
Director Dasarath once again failed to recreate his Santosham magic. This film is heavily inspired from many hit films and Dasarath simply relies on formulaic scenes and content to score a hit. This film doesn’t do any good for him as there is not a single scene that has shown director’s brilliance.
- Family drama
- Few entertaining scenes in the first half
- Boring screenplay
- Preachy dialogs
- Dragging second half
Final Word: Mr. Perfect is a clichéd film which is targeted at holiday crowds. It might work on the commercial front but the content is very poor. Go for it if you don’t mind watching same old family drama yet again.
