Michael Madana Kamaraju Review
Silver Screen Movies
Srikanth, Prabhu Deva, Sunil, Charmme
Nidhi Prasad

'Nidhi' Prasad had earlier directed several films. Despite good experience behind the camera eye, he is still committing mistakes giving jitters to the audiences. Before going to the sets, he had a fantastic storyline in mind.

However, while developing the story, he got confused and made mistakes in succession. The timing of songs is abrupt and especially the duets between Srikanth and Charmme should have been limited.

Though the title of the film had a similarity of an earlier film in which Kamal Hassan played the hero, it has nothing to do with the story. While Kamal played triple roles in that movie, in this film, the roles of Michael, Madan and Kamaraju were shared by Prabhudeva, Srikanth and Sunil. These were supported by Charmme and Mayuri in the female lead.

The director woven the story as a triangular love story. The hero of the film Madan (Srikanth) is a fashion designer and he conducts a fashion show where several models from different colleges across the country walk on the ramp at Goa. Archana (Charmme) is also a fashion designer and the costumes designed by her were on display by models from Vizag.

Madan and his brother-in-law Kamaraju (Sunil) meet Archana and Mandira (Mayuri @ Asha Saini) at Goa. While Madan takes Archana with him and employs her in his company, Kamaraju tries to marry Mandira. While returning from Goa, Madan tells Archana that he hates love. Though Madan loses his heart to her after some time, he could not reveal it due to ego problem. In order to make him reveal the love, Kamaraju arranges a fake wedding card of Archana with the photograph of Michael (Prabhudeva).

Madan gets depressed and at that time accidentally meets Michael, who was infant a vagabond. Learning all this, Michael decides to cheat Madan and marry Archana to bequeath the property of Archana. The hide and seek game between Michael, Madan, Archana and Kamaraju begins. Whether Madan was able to prove that Michael was a fake? How Kamaraju helped Madan in winning the love of Archana? What is the role of Kota Srinivasa Rao in the whole drama? Answers to all these questions form part of the climax.

It was Sunil, who stole the show with his fantastic performance, while Srikanth was at his usual best. He maintained excellent comedy timing all through the film and also showed fantastic ease in song sequences.

The debut song in the film choreographed on Sunil is good to watch, while the two songs in which Prabhudeva danced were extraordinary. Once again he proved that he is one of the best choreographers in south India by canning a Telugu classical dance with westernised steps. There was a good applause from the audiences to his dance.

The entire film was moulded in a hilarious manner and Kota Srinivasa Rao, Brahmanandam, Venumadhav and Ali added flavour to it. However, the poor narration of the story spoiled the tempo.

The director failed to establish many characters in the film and the audiences had to grope in the dark as to how a character had appeared on the screen and it takes time to correlate that character with the scene. Most part of the second half was disjointed and quite cinematic.

Charmme proved that she is not only a good artiste but also a good classical dancer. She did not show any inhibition to reveal her skin in many of the songs. The choreography of most of the duets was also in a routine commercial formula. But for the solo songs shot on Sunil and Prabhudeva, there is nothing much to talk about the songs.

Music by Chakri is average, and the background score failed to elevate the moods in the film.

The director failed to utilise the talents of most of the artistes by scripting casual comedy scenes all through the film. Camera work is oka
