Punchline: Good Comedy, Weak Story
Rakesh (Tharun) is about to get married in 2 days and a steamy video of Rakesh with another woman goes online. Vani Bhojan (Steffy), Tharun’s fiancee is very disciplined in these matters and Tharun fears of a break up if she gets to know about this video. Tharun and his friend (Abhinav Gomatam) goes on a pursuit to take the video down and find the culprit who uploaded the video. Rest of the story is about will Tharun find the culprit? Who is the culprit? Will Tharun and Vani get married?
Vijay Deverakonda, who ventured into production with Meeku Matrame Cheptha did his best to promote the film. But, for some reason the buzz didn’t pick up as much in the trade. Shameer Sultan succeeded in making people laugh however, he failed in narrating the story overall in an engaging way. Story revolves on a single thread and it tests your patience at many places. Only saving grace for the movie is the comedy episodes between Tharun and Abhinav. The heroines seems to be just for namesake and rest all characters are new and you couldn’t connect to any of them. Production values were very poor too. Overall, Meeku Matrame Cheptha may only appeal to very limited audience who don’t mind watching it for the comedy.
