Mental Madhilo Movie Review:


Mental Madhilo is made into a quintessential rom-com with a fresh and breezy feel. Some sort of novelty is showcased in narration that makes it engrossing. Movie takes off on a slow note, director takes his own convenient time establishing protagonist characterization. The film pitches up with entry of Swetcha as an uber cool chic. With a tangy twist at interval, the film rides to new high. Emotions are subtly maintained without much of melodrama. Fun part continues in second half with mystic role of of second leading lady. Audience would be left in puzzling mode in sync with the hero by the climax and get relieved from the dilemma along with him.


Mental Madhilo doesn’t have great technical or production values. It is more of a content and script driven flick. Film appears to be shot on a mobile camera. However, it gives a natural feel and suits the flavor of the film. Background music is classy and couple of songs haunt. Editing is crisp.


It is tailor made role of Sri Vishnu. He amazes with his subtle nuances and convincing expressions. His typical slang further alleviates his confusion character. Nivetha Pethuraj leaves strong impact with her attitude reflecting her relentless role. The new girl who played second lead is okay, she needs to improve on expression and lip-sync.

Bottom-line: With no confusion watching Mental Madhilo is a right choice!
