Meka Suri 2 - Raw Narration

Review by IndiaGlitz [ Friday, November 27, 2020 ]

'Meka Suri 2' is currently streaming on ZEE5. The Telugu-language crime thriller stars newcomers. Here is our review of the latest release.

Story:

In the first part, Suri (Abhinay) was a ruthless butcher of goats in Singarayakonda village. His wife Rani (Sumaya) was raped by the village's feudal lord Appalnaidu (Sharat Kumar). In avenging his wife's rape and murder, Suri got attracted to the Naxal movement. A cop tried to hunt him down and it was believed that he killed Suri in a staged encounter.

In the second part, an ACP (Pramod) goes on a mission to bring Suri, who is now a vigilante rendering instant justice to victims of sexual violence, to justice. But can he?

Analysis:

The sequel, directed by Trinadha Velisala, retains the flavour and mood of the first part. It has those elaborate chases, action scenes (minus the typical dishum-dishum stuff), etc. Suri's introduction scene itself is laced with a gory mood. The reckless and devilish vibes of Suri's character in the first part have been continued into the sequel.

An accidental murder, a grotesque character who revels in biting the neck of a dead person and such moments give 'Meka Suri 2' a raw and ominous feel. The scenes involving Maoists are devoid of typical tropes even though there are those stock elements such as a combing operation here, a Laal Salam moment there.

The web film is about the tried-and-tested trope of a clash between a vigilante who has no faith in the criminal justice system and a cop who feels law is supreme. The narration lacks a sucker punch despite the climax being somewhat 'hatke'. There should have been more of Suri playing mind games with the police department.

If the dialogues are largely old-fashioned (with characters drawing analogies involving lions, tigers and rats), some of the characters are well-rounded. A Naxalite saying that there is no place for personal grudges in Maoism is a case in point. A character saying that he would have behaved and thought exactly like Suri had he been in the latter's place is another.

The web film should have avoided elaborate yet non-substantive stretches for good. Every now and then, there are portions that are about long shots, montages and no dialogues.

Abhinay is at ease with himself as the unconventional Suri. All the other actors have done a decent job. Prajwal Krish's background music, Pardhu Saina's cinematography and other technical departments execute output within the constraints.

Verdict:

'Meka Suri 2' is about a clash between a vigilante and a cop. How brutalization can change lives and how a cop rages against jungle justice is the crux. At 120 minutes, it is a tag lengthy. It has its appealing moments that come out in bits and pieces. Watch it with low expectations.
