Megham

IndiaGlitz [Tuesday, June 15, 2004 • Telugu] Comments

It is a sad comedown for director Sunil Kumar Reddy, with a reputation for offbeat films like `Nisabdam' and `Hero'. Setting out to make a commercial winner, he has only succeeded in delivering a lackluster product.

Like every `masala' movie, `Megham' is dominated by dances, a comedy track, stunts, and other redundancies, all at the cost of the plot. The story about an orphan, who discards his adopted parents to protect his friend's family, may not tax comprehension unduly; but the umpteen flashbacks confuse the viewers to the utmost.

Raghu, brother Ravi Teja, and new girl Tanuroy fail to redeem the film with their ordinary performances. So do the drearily pedestrian compositions of debutant Radhakrishna, Reddy's mind-blowing action scenes are the only saving grace in this otherwise routine film revolving around Rayalaseema's factional feuds.

It all begins with Raghu arriving in the city and enrolling himself in a college. The soft-spoken guy wins friends, including a few girls, but he falls in love with Tanuroy. He finds a house opposite Tanuroy. When some louts misbehave with Tanu, he mows them down but, ironically, only to earn her wrath. Then he gets bashed up and she starts loving him. Meanwhile, dreaded factionist Rajan P Dev is in search of Kavitha and her niece Tanuroy. Raghu saves them from Rajan's thugs. And Kavita is shocked to see Raghu who has killed her son! It is revealed in one of those flashbacks that young Tanuroy and Kavitha brought orphan Raghu to their home, though he was thrown out later..The story winds on until the lovers are united after a gory climax. The end comes a relief for the viewers who have been patient enough to stay on.
