Here is the “Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu” Movie Review.
Intro: Comedian Prudhvi is the man of the moment. It is not exaggerated to say that there are very few Telugu films, could be counted on fingers, that released in 2016 without having Prudhvi in the cast. With Prudhvi being publicized as the lead and Saloni of “Maryada Ramanna” fame as his love interest, the film garnered good buzz. Naveen Chandra being the main protagonist, the film has good expectations. Let’s see whether the film lived up to them or not.
“Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu” is releasing today.

Story: Prasanth, played by Naveen Chandra and Priya, (Shruthi Sodhi) is daughter of billionaire Murali Sharma, fall for each other. Since Priya is a rich girl, naturally, her father won’t agree for her love. Prasanth challenges him to lose money and incur a loss to learn the value of people.
Taking up that challenge, Murali Sharma invites people to come up with different ideas to make him incur a financial loss. So he is advised to produce a film. Murali ropes in an utter flop of a director and a pseudo producer to make a ‘flop’ film. They zero in on Mahesh Babu (Prudhvi) and Samantha (Saloni) for the film. This forms rest is the movie.
Performances: Prudhvi as Variation Star Mahesh Babu steals the show. Scenes involving him and Saloni are hilarious. Saloni is a good performer. She once again stuck to her natural performance. Be it emotional scenes or fun scenes, Saloni is Samantha
Murali Sharma is a method actor. He would easily get under the skin of any character. And he proved this again with his role as a rich businessman who realizes the value of love.
Posani as producer Tatarao and Raghubabu as Roldgold Ramesh
Too many references/spoofs
Tollywood has witnessed several spoof films. Allari Naresh’s “Sudigadu” and Sampoornesh Babu’s “Hrudaya Kaleyam” are two noted examples that have succeeded and set a benchmark. Prudhvi’s “Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu” follows the same line. Though the film’s plot seems unrealistic and sans logic, it has its moments that tickle your funny bone. Especially, witty one liners that make the film more engaging and entertaining. They’ve gelled well into the script.
However, the film falls flat. Too many references to star heroes and their spoofs may not go well with audiences who expect food for thought. If your’e not a fan of brainy content, “Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu” is your choice.
Leave your brains at home and watch the film. It’s entertaining and ends with a good message too.
