Vijay Deverakonda is back! But the Arjun Reddy actor has donned the hat of a producer with his maiden venture Meeku Matrame Chepta. Directed by Shammeer Sultan, the film features Tharun Bhascker Dhaassyam and Vani Bhojan in the lead roles.  The rom-com is written and directed by Shammeer Sultan and produced by Vardhan Devarakonda and Vijay Devarakonda under the banner King of the Hill Entertainment. So how has the film fared? Let us check it out..


Rakesh (Tarun Bhascker) is a happy go lucky guy who works as an anchor on a television channel. One day he meets a doctor (Vani Bhojan) accidentally and falls in love with her. Eventually, she also starts liking him back. Families of both accept their relationship and fix their marriage. But everything falls apart when an embarrassing video of Rakesh starts trending on the internet. What kind of problems Rakesh faced? How did he protect himself from embarrassment? What happens if his fiance takes a look at the video? What happened in the end, forms the crux of the story.



Tharun Bhascker Dhaassyam breathes life into his character. Though this is his debut movie, Tharun Bhaskar has given his best in his performance and proved that he could entertain the audience not only with his directional skills but also with his performance. Abhinav Gomatam delivered an honest performance. The way he has portrayed his character is really worth appreciating. Naveen George Thomas performed really well. Anasuya Bharadwaj’s energetic performance added more strength for the movie. Vani Bhojan is too good in her role. Avantika Mishra’s screen presence is really impressive. Pavani Gangireddy justified her character really well. The rest of the actors also made their presence felt.


The way director Shameer Sultan has taken an interesting concept, laced a beautiful story around it, and filled with entertainment is really good, and he has succeeded in handling some sensitive issues and generated comedy. His pace of narration is also excellent and will make the audience stick to the chairs. Production values by Vijay Devarakonda under the King Of The Hill Entertainment are lavish. It is evident that Vijay Devarakonda has invested decent amounts without compromising in terms of quality. Music by Sivakumar is outstanding. Keeping the song aside, his background score is really amazing and lifted each and every scene of the film. Cinematography by Mathan Gunadeva is beautiful to watch. Editing by Sreejith Sarang is neat.
