Two youngsters Madha and Manasi are eloping from home. They meet an elderly man (Rangayana Raghu), who is curious about their love story and wants to help them. When all seems to be going right for the duo, the film has multiple twists.
Director Sathish Pradhan, of Abhinetri fame, has tried to make a sentimental love story with his next outing - Madha Mathu Manasi. Does he succeed? The film has many hackneyed tropes of commercial love stories, banking on the oft-repeated formula of the song-fight-scene routine on loop.
The film begins on a rather glossy note, with a special number introducing the lead pair. Shortly, it turns into a run-of-the-mill mass attempt, with ample fights and songs that make for a big chunk of the screen time that is a little over two hours.
The core essence of the story, which is a twist at the interval, is a subject that seems at least two decades too late. The film, which deals with a sensitive topic in the second half, borders on being regressive in both dialogues and treatment. But, commercial cinema hasn't been the biggest flag-bearer of gender sensitivity and political correctness, so let's leave that aside.
Prajwal Devaraj has a suave look in this film and has performed well, be it in fights, dances or funny sequences. Sruthi Hariharan sizzles in a sexy avatar in the songs, which is a change from her personality that we've seen onscreen.
This film does test one's patience, especially in the first half. But, for those who love their routine dose of commercial fare, this could prove to be entertaining.
