(Katrina Kaif) is the heiress of Raja of Mirjapur. Her
deceased father wrote in his will that she would inherit
the property worth 750 crores after she becomes major
at the age of 21. The entire property is under the care-taking
of Bhavani Prasad (Kota Srinivasa Rao), who wants to
inherit the entire property by killing her. As he hatches
the plans to eliminate Malliswari, she is sent to Vizag
to a relative's place as a normal girl so that she can
live with anonymity.
(Venkatesh) works as bank accountant in Andhra Bank
at Vizag. He is a bachelor who has been desperately
seeking for marriage alliance for the past seven years.
He would be looking at every unmarried girl with dreams
in his eyes. Just call him 'Pellikaani Prasad' and he
would get instantly irritated. He accidentally meets
Malliswari and falls deeply in love with her.
is traced by the goons in Vizag and they start running
after her. Prasad escorts her and drops her safely in
Hyderabad. To know what happened next, you must watch
Malliswari on a big screen.
It's a typical role for Venkatesh and he donned it with
uttermost ease and finesse. His comedy timing is impeccable.
He put on a little bit of weight and it added to the
characterization of bachelor (mudiripoyina bendakaya).
The director should get lot of credit for the characterization
of hero role who is desperate to get married. The desperation
is so high that when he meets villain for the first
time, he utters the following dialogue while leaving
Peru Vara Prasad
Vizag Andhra Bank lo Vudyogam Chestaanu.
Naa Jeetam nelaki 9 velu
Neeku emanna sanbhandaalu teliste cheppu
Nakasale Caste Feeling kooda ledu"
Kaif: Katrina Kaif is apt for the role of princess.
She is extremely elegant in princess attire. Sunitha
dubbed her voice and it suited her. But she is average
in other scenes where she is expected to be a girl-next-door
Gajala did an item song
and she is good. Pop singer Smita
did a negative role in this film. It's a little unglamorous
role and she did very well. Kota
is good, as usual, as the villain. After Venkatesh,
Brahmanandam has got top
priority in generating comedy followed by Sunil,
Rajitha and Hema.
etc did well.
When I saw an interview of Venkatesh in a local TV channel,
he described 'Roman Holiday' as one of his favorite
English films. And now I understand why he Okayed this
story. The storyline of the film has the shades of Hollywood
classic 'Roman Holiday'.
- direction: The best part of the film is the excellent
characterization by Vijaya Bhaskar. The screenplay is
neat. And direction is impeccable. Though he stuffed
ample comedy in the film, he made sure that there is
an undercurrent emotion. All the action sequences in
the film are natural. There is not even a single forced
fight. The director opted for a no-nonsense climax and
justified it. Vijaya Bhaskar never seems to be getting
tired of delivering super hits - Swayamvaram, Nuvve
Kavali, Nuvvu Naaku Nachchav, Manmadhudu and now Malliswari.
That's too in a row!!
Trivikram gets the top credit for sensible dialogues
that injects sweet poison into the film and then make
you watch the film again and again. The problem with
Trivikram is that he gives one-liners so quickly that
you forget the earlier dialogue while listening to latest
one-liner. Trivikram who is known for writing super
comedy dialogues has come up with a hilarious-yet-very-punchy
mass dialogue for Venkatesh. Here is the dialogue he
utters when he confronts Kota for the first time -
Vayasu 50 daatindi
Nuvvu chakkera tinte sugar
uppu tinte BP
kaaram tinte Ulcers
Sarigga Bhojanam chestene chachipotaavu
Neekendukuraa ee aasti meda aasa?'
Kota utters a dialogue in the beginning of the film
'Every fortune in the history is made with a crime'
that justifies crime angle.
the dialogues written in Venkatesh - Brahmanandam combination
are hilarious. Especially the ones while Brahmanandam
takes Venky to the dining hall.
is a heart-touching sentimental dialogue like
chesi jeetam adagochu
appichi interest expect cheyyochu
kaani help chesi thanks kosam eduruchooda koodadu'
There is another mass-oriented dialogue that assures
safety and love to heroine
chachina Tarvathe Nuvvu Chastaavu'
dialogues in the scene where he promises that he gives
the world's best comforts with his 9k salary is very
cute. The dialogues for beach episodes are very good.
Songs by Koti are OK. Background music is good. The
first song of film with Gajala is hilarious. Picturization
of Malliswari's title song is impressive. The blending
of songs in to the film and picturization of other songs
should have been better.
departments: Photography by Sameer Reddy is first
rate. Editing by Srikar Prasad is crisp. Stunt sequences
by Stun Siva are impressive. Lyrics by Sirivennela are
simple and effective. Artwork is impressive and locations
chosen are worth a look!
This film is made on a high budget of 10.5 crores with
lavish production values. This film would bring smiles
for D Suresh Babu as the last 5 films (Harivillu, Viajayam,
Hai, Gemini and NNNN) of Suresh Productions did not
do well at box office. He should be commended for selecting
the right team and then providing the right ambience
for the highly talented technicians.
First half is very interesting with series of hilarious
scenes. The emotion catches up in the scene where a
pressmeet is held in second half to announce Malliswari
as the heiress to the 750 crore property. The same emotion
is carried till the climax of the film. The climax is
very impressive. The strength of the film are dialogues
by Trivikram, direction of Vijaya Bhaskar and histrionics
by Venkatesh who managed the entire show single-handedly.
The only thing that does not live up to the high expectations
are the songs in the film. The narration of the film
is slow, just like any other Vijaya Bhaskar's films.
This film is best recommended for the family viewing.
You should watch it at least once.
aspect: Malliswari is opened with terrific crowds
all over the state. This film is declared as a good
hit all over. The range of the hit would depend on how
this film is received by hardcore masses in lower B
and C centers.
piece: I have booked the next available Malliswari's
show at Prasads immediately after watching the morning
show. The sweet-poisonous comedy in any Trivikram-Vijaya
Bhaskar film makes you get addicted and nobody is an
exception to this..
