Storyline

The movie begins with Jai bharath varma (Prabhas) practicing guitar when a girl runs to him and asks him to save her from a gang of goons chasing her. Then Jay, without fighting, resolves the conflict. The girl introduces herself as Manasa (Richa Gangopadhyay). They slowly become friends. But one day she asks Jai to leave her and go as she cannot stand the separation from him if their relationship develops any further. He then goes back to India and changes the mind of Manasa's brother and when they give a vacation he goes with him to his village. There, where everyone are conservative in nature, he changes their nature and makes them more lovable. Written by rahulsrivatsava

Good, But still Disappointing
11 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The reason I say this movie was disappointing is because with such a talented cast and good premise, it still turned out to be a routine Telugu movie with nothing new. I watched this movie wanting to like it, and to an extent I did. Prabhas continues to rise as a Tollywood star and he was great as the lead. Anushka was a good heroine even though she only had about 30 minutes of screen time. Rest of the cast was also good, notably Sathyaraj and Sampath Raj. Songs were OK, some good and some bad. Comedy with Brahmanandam was good, and the overall atmosphere of the movie kept me watching. The main plot, two families at war, is a lot like Romeo and Juliet without the romance, and it is a very thrilling story. I will say this: Mirchi surprised me. I did not like most of the first half , especially the first 20 minutes. But when the twist is revealed at the interval, I really got pulled in to see what would happen.

However, there are some problems as well. We get these dumb action scenes throughout the movie with guys with giant machetes flying off the hero. I'm sick and tired off watching these fight scenes, which are meant just to glorify the hero. Bollywood has moved on from this style of action. So why can't Tollywood??? There are a few inconsistencies with the plot as well. When Prabhas says he came back to end the fighting between the 2 families, why the *%$# is he still killing people??? And again we get the classic 5 minute climax in which the conflict is solved by a long speech by the hero while beating up people.

I can say that there is some enjoyment to be had in Mirchi but it's not a great movie. I expected more from this movie. Acting, story, and tone were good, and what else can you ask of a movie? From A+ to F, Mirchi gets a C+.
