(Ravi Krishna) hails from a lower middle class family,
raised by his lone mother and he supports his family
going to work at a tender age. A good hearted guy, Venu
has only one severe problem - a disfigurement on his
face. A side of his face gets burned when he was a kid.
People get scared by looking at him and certain people
make fun of him. Due to this, Venu develops severe inferiority
complex. He consults a surgeon and inquires about how
much it would cost for a plastic surgery. He starts
saving money. In that process, he becomes short-tempered
and loses his cool character. The rest of the film is
all about how he realizes that it's the inner beauty
that matters, but not the looks.
Ravi Krishna: Ravi Krishna suited the character
very well. His dialogue delivery improved a lot compared
to his debut film 7GBC. However the disfigurement on
his face does not appear as ugly/frightening as the
characters in the film believe it to be. There is lots
of maturity in his performance towards the climax of
the film. Ravi Krishna seems to be sticking to sympathy-driven
Revathy is pretty natural in the role of mother. Gopika
is lovely as the unassuming girl-next-door showering
mute love on Ravi Krishna. Sanjitha is adequate in the
small yet vital role. Prakash Raj is good as the mentor.
The comedy by Venu Madhav is ineffective. Uttej did
a meaningful role. Thalaivasal Vijay appears in a guest
role as the painter.
- screenplay - direction: The basic storyline is
very different from the stories of regular films. This
story tells the importance of inner beauty. Screenplay
of the film is pretty slow. Direction is good in parts
and is pretty old fashioned catering to the segment
of women. Too much emphasize laid on sentimental scenes.
The way he shown how a sane man would become pretty
wild due to frustration is brilliant.
Though there are six songs in the album, only four songs
appear on screen as duets. Vennele Kurisenule is pretty
melodious and wins your hearts. 'Chirugali' song is
good and it appears as back background music for vital
Dialogues are plus points in this film. Most of the
dialogues are pretty natural and logical. They appear
like they are derived from the day-to-day life experiences
of emotional struggle. Here are a couple of dialogues
that are appropriately used -
1. Addam okkasare
pagulutundi. Naa manasu prati roju pagulutundi. (interval
2. Pakkana vunnantha sepu valla viluva manaki teleedu.
Cinematography is adequate. Most of the film is shot
in a colony set. Editing is OK. Fights are not required
in this film.
First half of the film is OK. The climax of the film
is heart touching. Plus points of the film are good
storyline and dialogues. The negative points of the
film are slow narration and lack of all-round approach
in screenplay. From a critic's point of view, Muddula
Koduku makes an average flick. The commercial success
of the film would depend on how ladies embrace it.
