Ek Mini Katha Telugu Movie Review:
Santosh (Santosh Shobhan) grows up as a happy kid, but soon life changes when he develops an insecurity about his size. His insecurity only grows with his age as people around him fail to understand his problem. Santosh erases the idea of intimacy and love, doubting his ability to satisfy any woman. When he meets Amrutha (Kavya Thapar) and falls in love, he tries his best to distance from her. Fate has other plans as Santosh and Amrutha get married in a series of comical situations. Santosh’s insecurity about his size amplifies every second as he struggles to confide in Amrutha. He tries impossible missions to increase his size. His trials and tribulations to achieve his goal with nosy relatives poking in, and the peculiar situations he finds himself in forms the rest of the story.
Santosh Shobhan shines as an actor in Ek Mini Katha. He has come a long way since Golconda Highschool (2011.) He portrays a layered character who is sandwiched between his emotions and insecurities with such ease. His voice cracks during the hilariously uncomfortable situations and expressive eyes during the love scenes show his abundant potential. Sudharshan as Darshan, the unhelpfully helpful friend of Santosh who drags him into unintended pickles, shines with his comic timing and dialogue delivery. Kavya Thapar looks innocent in her role as the loving Amrutha. Shraddha Das charms in the short cameo. Brahmaji as the insensitive father of Santosh did his role well. The supporting cast did an adequate job in playing their roles.
Keeping the comedy, acting and the music aside, the effort it takes to craft a commercial comedy entertainer about a sensitive and tabooed topic such as a man’s size is not an easy thing. The director Karthik Rapolu gives an earnest attempt at this. However, the main highlight of this movie is the issues it highlights through dramatic and comical scenes. It shows the importance of supporting your child, teaching them sex education and how a little honesty goes a long way. The writer Merlapaka Gandhi and the director Karthik Rapolu managed to highlight the urban issue of moral policing not only in a comical manner but cleverly use it as a plot device.
The concept this movie centers around is definitely unfamiliar and has never been attempted in Telugu cinema before. Ek Mini Katha succeeds in not only centering the movie around an uncomfortable topic but also makes it entertaining and message oriented. If an unconventional concept with a conventional execution is your cup of tea, Ek Mini Katha is definitely the movie for you. Head over to the OTT platform Amazon Prime Video to enjoy Ek Mini Katha.
