Mass Raja Ravi Teja has become Mass Maharaj with this film and yet again, he comes up with a tangy entertainer. Let us see how this ‘Mirapaky’ faired.
 
Story:
Rishi (Ravi Teja) is a cop and though he is good at his duty, he loves the company of girls and wants to enjoy romance and other fun things. He also has a team (Brahmaji, Muralikrishna and others). He gets his chance when he is assigned on a special mission to a college as a lecturer. Here, Rishi meets the traditional Brahmin girl Vinamra (Richa) and it is love at first sight for him.

In no time, Vinamra also falls for him. The story takes a turn with the arrival of Vaishali (Deeksha) in the college, daughter of the big don Kittu Bhai (Prakashraj) and she also falls in love with Rishi. Now begins the mission of Rishi, what is that mission?

Whom does he like, Vinamra or Vaishali? All this forms the rest of the story. 
 
Performances:
Ravi Teja is the life and soul for this movie. His energy levels are extraordinary and he charges up the scene with his body language. He shoulders the film throughout and scores the brownie points.

Richa looks sweet and given her role, she fits perfectly as a gullible yet adorable girl. Her expressions and dance movements during songs are cute. 

Deeksha is live dynamite. There is a significant sex appeal she possesses and her oomph factor outweighs her performance. Her baby face mixed with her voluptuous charms is a feast for the audience. 

Prakashraj was brief, Ajay was neat, Kota was at his best once again. Ravu Ramesh and Sunil would have given better roles to perform. Supreeth was standard. Ali, Brahmaji, Jogi Naidu, Praveen provide few smiles. Chandramohan was elegant. The others did their bit as required and added value.
 
Highlights: 

  • Ravi Teja’s performance and energy levels
  • Cinematography
  • Production values
  • Screenplay
  • Music and Background
  • The scene where an analogy of Puri Jagannadh, V V Vinayak, Rajamouli films come and Kota says “meeru dhandha vadilesi cinemalu baaga mariginru..”
  • Songs and music

Drawbacks:

  • Climax could have been better
  • Few scenes lack depth

Analysis:
Overall, the director Harish Shankar has improved from his earlier venture and he has balanced the entertainment and commercial values decently. He is showing potential as a commercial director for Tollywood in the future.

As far as this film is concerned Harish Shankar seems to have taken some inspiration from the narrative style and treatment of Puri Jagannath. Hence a bit of ‘Pokiri’ flavor is seen in this film.

The pace at which the film runs doesn’t leave many idle moments and it is more like a touch and go situation without any hiccups. The technical values, the music and the entertainment quotient were in the right proportion. If the story can be given that extra dose of punch and twists, then it will be a right recipe for the box office. However, this has a strong chance to be a commercial success.

First half runs with many hilarious moments packed with some action while the second half goes on action and love sentiment with a few lighter moments.  But the closing of the movie is very abrupt and quick.

Bottom-line: Formula entertainer, can be watched once
