mirapakai Rishi (Ravi Teja) is a cop working at a special intelligence cell in Delhi. Kittu Bhai (Prakash Raj) is an international mafia kingpin operating from Bangkok. Rishi goes to Hyderabad and joins a college as a lecturer. He takes the under-cover job of lecturer to trap Kittu Bhai through Shankar Anna (Kota) - his channel in Hyderabad. He falls in love with a traditional Brahmin girl Vinamra (Richa Gangopadhay). The rest of the story is all about his triangular love story with Vaishali (Deeksha Seth) and how he brings Kittu Bhai to book.

Artists Performance

mirapakai Ravi Teja made sure that his brand comedy and entertainment is intact. He is highly energetic in dances (especially the first song and the last song). Richa Gangopadhyay is fine as a traditional Brahmin girl. Deeksha Seth is okay as a haughty girl. Swati gave a special appearance. Prakash Raj’s screen-time in the movie is more like that of a guest artist though he is the main villain. Kota Srinivasa Rao is impressive. One doesn’t understand what Sunil is doing in this movie and he is cliched.

Technical departments

mirapakaiStory - screenplay - direction: Story of the movie is cliched as we have seen loads of movies of cop working under-cover in Telugu since Pokiri. One good thing the director has done is to reveal the cop part of it in the beginning of the film in-stead of showing it as a twist in the end. The director’s ability cannot be judged when one directs the movie of Ravi Teja. Ravi Teja takes over the baton with his entertainment quotient and gives story/screenplay a backseat. This movie is no exception. Direction is okay in parts.

mirapakaiOther departments: Music director Thaman came up with populist tunes in the movie. The songs are good though they are loud at times. Background music is good. Cinematography is average. Dialogues are nice at times. Editing is okay. Fights are neat.

mirapakaiAnalysis: The major story of the movie is revealed in the first 15 minutes and the culmination takes place in the last 15 minutes. The rest of two hours is dedicated to the love angle and entertainment. The screenplay that takes place during this 2-hour period is not properly done. It is a proven fact that Ravi Teja’s movies have scant respect for story and screenplay and majorly depend on the entertainment aspect. The entertainment is interesting in parts. We have to wait and see how Mirapakai is lapped up by the crowds.
