Mental Krishna is back!! Yes, we are talking about Posani Krishna Murali and this time he has come up with yet another creative thought of his. Whether it was creative or crap let us see.
 
Story:
A man dressed like Che Guevara keeps walking in the streets and does few weird things in the name of justice. He calls himself common man (Srikanth) and despite his weird antics, the police can’t do much. In no time, the media gets their coverage on him and so does the public with their problems.

The common man becomes the messiah and he goes around slippering the ministers (Kota, Tanikella, Chalapathi Rao). Not stopping at that, he also kidnaps the Chief Minister’s daughter (Sanjjanaa) along with a news correspondent Sunitha (Tashu Kaushik).

The matter goes to the CM and enquiry about common man begins. Who is this common man? Why is he going around like a madman and why is the law not stopping him? All this forms the rest of the story.
 
Performances:
Srikanth has only two expressions – blank and crying. He keeps walking like a robot and when he will get mood no one knows. Given his image, it is time he realises that these are not the roles for him.

Tashu Kaushik was expressive and despite her brief screen time, she makes her presence felt. She has shown potential.

Sanjjanaa was glamorous but she is yet to improve on her acting skills. 

Kota was predictable, Tanikella was not used to his fullest, Brahmanandam was impish, Chalapathi Rao was regular, the actress doing Srikanth’s wife role was pretty. Krishna Bhagawan was okay, Kondavalasa was brief, Balayya was matured. The others didn’t have much to offer.
 
Highlights

  • None!!!

Drawbacks

  • Illogical storyline
  • Disgusting and intolerable emotional scenes
  • Crazy characterisation of protagonist
  • Mindless logic for sending a message

Analysis
It is an open fact that Posani is crazy and with each passing day his insanity is reaching its peak. That is once again seen in his latest flick. Picking half knowledge of law and adding his own theories to it, Posani comes up with some constipating theme much to the torture of the audience.

Some of the classic examples for his madness are - CM’s daughter giving interview to TV news channel in swim costume, Hero walking with the dead body of his wife on streets, Minister and family taking mugs and going to the roads for toilet, Minister forced to drink drainage water from tap and many more. Shameless portrayal of scenes and crass logic are Posani’s specialties. Usually if few members rape one person it is gangrape but what do you call a single person raping the entire set of audience.

There will not be a single audience who will come out of the theatre without feelings of disgust, frustration, embarrassment and torture. While the first half freaks the viewer out of his wits thanks to the portrayal of the protagonist, the second half adds more to the madness by some ‘mind blowing’ sequences. Overall, this is one film which will take tons of guts and nerves of iron to watch and come out in one piece.
 
Bottomline: Shocking than mental asylum, painful than third degree torture
