The film has been directed by Koratala Shiva. He has also written the story, dialogues and the screenplay of the film. The music of the film has been composed by Devi Sri Prasad. The cinematographer Madhie has lent in some excellent visuals for the movie. On the other side art director A. S Prakash has shown excellent talent by creating some of the most beautiful sequences in the film. The film has been produced by Vamsi-Pramod duo and it has been produced under the banner of UV creations. The film is 155 minutes long.

The story of the film is quite unique. It is about a young Indian guy named Jai, (played by Prabhas) who goes to study in Milan. He is an extremely handsome and suave guy and falls head over heels for Manasa (played by Richa). They meet for the first time during an eve teasing condition when some ruffians were teasing her and Jai comes to her rescue. However, when he decides to confide his feelings for her, the girl tells him that she lives in a remote village of Rantachintala that is located in the suburbs of Andhra Pradesh.

Mirchi is a complete entertainment filled movie. It has within its cover all different types of exciting features. The action scenes and the delivery of dialogues are to impress anyone. Prabhas through his brilliant performance has proved the fact he is apt to play the role of romantic drama hero. The action sequences have been pulled off by him cleanly. The film has portrayed him in two styles. First as a romantic guy who woos his love and the other is a ravenous hero who is ready to plunge on to his enemies. The film is pivoted completely with his performance as he takes up most of the screen time and space. His style has been presented uniquely and the debutant director has left no stones turned while bringing out the scenes on the screen.

Brahmanandam has done quite well in creating certain comic scenes. Anushka too has performed quite and most of the second half remains alive due to her. The chemistry between Prabhas and Anushka has been portrayed brilliantly by the director. Richa has mild performance in the brief time that she has been allotted.

The cinema has been given some beautiful and melodious scores by Devi Prasad; the director has put in certain excellent dialogues that have kept the movie entertaining all throughout. It is evident that the fans of Prabhas are going to be very much impressed by the performance put up by him in the movie.

Verdict: Average

Rating: 3/5

Natholi cheriyoru meenalla is the new venture of director V.K.prakash after Popins , Trivandrum lodge,beautiful etc….starring Fahad fazil,kamalini mukherjee and Reema kallingal.The script of the movie is done by Shankar ramakrishnan who had written the script for several successful movies.Natholi cheriyoru meenalla can be considered as an expirement of V.K.prakash like his other movies but the fact of failure in majority of his movies continues with his new venture also.
Story
Natholi cheriyoru mennalla is a triangular love story mixed with some comic situations.Basically the movie discuss the conflict between a writer and the character he creates.Fahad is playing dual roles preman,representing a person living in urban area and Narendran representing a villager.About Preman he is care taker of an apartment at cochin and every one in that apartment calls him as “Natholi” there he meets the two girls kamalini mukherjee and Reema kallingal residing in the same apartment and the later part of the movie deals with the involvement of this ladies in his life.
Performance
Fahad fazil is playing his character fantastically in this movie.His expressions and dialogue delivery showcased the talent which he has.
The performance of Kamalini mukherjee was also nice .
The role of Reema kallingal seemed to be below average and her performance doesn’t come up to the mark.
Eventhough the other characters doesn’t had much to perform their performance was ok.
Overall Review
The theme of the movie seemed to be interesting but the script by Shankar ramakrishnan failed to meet the expectation of the audience.The first half of the movie seemed to be ok, even though it involved a bit lag but when comparing with the second half the first half seemed to be better.Nothing much to tell about the movie it can be categorized as a below average movie which doesn’t have anything new to convey.The crowd after the show seemed to be totally disappointed.Failure in synchronization of dubbing for Kamalini mukherjee seemed to be another drawback.

Rating :2.25/5
Verdict :Not recommended for watching.A below average movie which doesn’t have anything new to convey.
