Malli Pelli is one film that has created so much controversy thanks to the off-screen behavior of Naresh and Pavitra Lokesh. The film has been released and read our review if the film has any juice in it or not.
Narendra(Naresh) is a top star in Telugu cinema and is worth 1000 crores of property. He is married thrice and is having issues with his third wife Soumya Sethupathi (Vanitha Vijayakumar). As time passes by, he meets Parvathy(Pavitra Lokesh) a Kannada actress, and develops feelings for her. The rest of the story is about how Narendra manages to convince Parvathy to take the bold step of marriage and also fights his third wife in a court of law.
Naresh is amazing in his role. As the film is based on his story, he showcased some gritty emotions and what went through his head when he decided to start a live-in relationship at the age of 60. Pavitra Lokesh also does well in her role and showcases mature emotions. The chemistry between the lead pair is quite good. It was nice to see Sarath Babu one last time on screen. Jayasudha was neat in her role.
Flashback in 2nd half
Malli Pelli is the real-life story of Naresh and Pavitra Lokesh. They were trolled for their lip lock and getting intimate at the age of 60. All this is showcased in different zones and has been dealt with in a decent manner. The bold romance is what takes the cake. The manner in which Naresh develops feeling for the heroine has been neatly executed.
The best part of the film is that there is no vulgarity in the film. None of the romance or the scenes embarrasses you from the inside. The film is a tale of love shown through the eyes of an elderly couple. MS Raju should be credited for showcasing the facts in a neat way. Though he has taken the side of Naresh, he makes it look realistic.
The film has been made on a rich note as the visuals and characters look realistic. The music and camerawork are nice. The editing in the second half could have been better and the flashback episode in the second half is boring. The film is not for all. A section might find it silly but for drama lovers, Malli Pelli has passable moments to give it a shot.
