Music Shop Murthy Movie Review

Music Shop Murthy is a heartwarming story about a man in his fifties who, after running a music shop for years, finds the courage to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a DJ.  The film explores his journey as he confronts the obstacles placed before him by his family, friends, and societal expectations, ultimately inspiring audiences with a message of resilience and the power of pursuing one's passions, regardless of age.


Murthy (Ajay Ghosh), fondly known as "Music Shop Murthy," finds his life turned upside down when the rise of technology threatens his beloved music shop.  As his business dwindles and financial woes mount, he faces a storm of discontent from his wife Jaya (Aamani) and elder daughter, while his younger daughter stands by his side.  Determined to overcome his struggles, Murthy decides to pursue his long-held dream of becoming a DJ.  His path crosses with Anjana (Chandini Chowdhary), a vibrant and spirited young woman, sparking a chain of unexpected events.

The film explores the complexities of Murthy's journey as he attempts to realize his aspirations.  The dynamic between him and Anjana, as well as the reactions of his family members and Anjana's strict father, Ranga Rao (Bhanu Chander), add layers of drama and intrigue to the narrative.  Music Shop Murthy promises a heartwarming tale of resilience, second chances, and the pursuit of passion, with a unique blend of humor and emotional depth.


Music Shop Murthy is a delightful film anchored by Ajay Ghosh's stellar performance.  He embodies the character with an effortless charm, seamlessly transitioning between humor and emotion, captivating audiences with his genuine and relatable portrayal.  His natural performance, coupled with realistic expressions, ensures a strong connection with viewers.

Aamani delivers a powerful performance as Ajay Ghosh's wife, bringing back memories of her earlier stellar work with her impactful mannerisms and dialogue delivery.  Chandini Chowdhary injects a lively energy into the film, bringing a bubbly and captivating presence to her role.

Bhanu Chander is commendable as the strict and uncompromising father, adding a layer of complexity to the family dynamic.

Director Siva Paladugu presents a unique and inspiring story, emphasizing the pursuit of dreams regardless of age and societal pressures. The narrative moves at a brisk pace, maintaining focus on the core themes without unnecessary deviations. The film adeptly portrays Ajay Ghosh's family struggles and his journey toward realizing his DJ dreams with the arrival of Chandini Chowdhary.  The first half is engaging and entertaining, with a well-placed emotional interval twist.

The second half maintains a similar pace, with a slight dip in momentum that is quickly recovered by powerful emotional scenes in the pre-climax and climax.  While these scenes are impactful, they do feel slightly overdone, leaving a sense that they could have been more concise.

The story itself is compelling and engaging, with a screenplay that is racy and interesting, particularly in the first half.  Siva Paladugu's direction is solid, but a few script tweaks could have elevated the film to greater heights.

Pawan's music is lively and peppy, but the songs lack a lasting impact.  However, his background score is exceptional, providing a powerful emotional backdrop to the film's key moments. Nageshwar Reddy's editing is commendable, with a few minor instances of unnecessary drags in the pre-climax.  Sreenivas Bejugam's cinematography captures the village atmosphere with natural beauty and the DJ world with vibrant colors.  The dialogues are impactful and thought-provoking, carrying a clear message.  Production values are strong, contributing to the film's overall appeal.

Music Shop Murthy is a heartwarming film that resonates with its universal themes and engaging performances.  While a few tweaks could have enhanced its impact, the film's strong core, combined with impactful performances, makes it a worthwhile watch.


Ajay Ghosh delivers a captivating performance in the lead role of Music Shop Murthy, leaving a lasting impression on audiences.  Despite a few minor flaws, director Siva Paladugu's skillful handling of the story, coupled with a solid screenplay and direction, has earned widespread acclaim.  The film's subtle message resonated deeply with viewers, connecting with them on a personal level and leaving a lasting impact.

Rating: 2.5 / 5.0
