Mirchi
mohit_sinsniwal26 May 2019
Telugu actor Prabhas' much-hyped movie Mirchi, which happens to be the next biggest outing after Rebel, has hit the marque today. Debuntant Koratala Siva, who has earlier penned story and dialogues for several hit films, is turning director with this film, which has soared up the viewers' curiosity to sky high. It surely lives up to their expectations with its sound production elements and good performances by lead actors. Mirchi is a romantic action entertainer, which is rich in commercial aspects. Prabhas' electrifying performance is the main highlight of the movie. Koratala Siva's beautiful story and punch dialogues, Devi Sri Prasad's trendy music, Madhi's beautiful picturisation, amazing choreography of dance and action sequences, Brahmanandam and Raghubabu's comedy, beautiful artwork, costumes and locations are the highlights of the movie. The predictable plot with some outdated and clichéd scenes and weak climax are its drawbacks. Koratala Siva has chosen a good emotional story, which is the paramount of the movie Mirchi. It has fast-paced narration and the director has got good grip over the tempo. The first half of the film has two stunning fights and three songs (two romantic and a title track) and a few comedy sequences, and it has all other masala elements to make you glued to the screens. The fight and twist at interval bang set the tone for the story. The second half is very important. After the interval bang, the movie Mirchi goes into flashback mode and it turns very emotional. The second half has three sentimental, romantic and trendy songs and an amazing fight. The movie reaches the climax with a sad twist, which is heart-wrenching, and should be watched on screen. Jai (Prabhas) is an architect based in Milan, where he falls in love with Manasa (Richa) at first sight. He returns to his village in Palnadu area to reform his violent family background. With the help of bank manager Veera Pratap (Brahmanandam), Jai makes good advancement in winning the appreciation of everyone in Manasa's family. Here unfolds an interesting twist in the story. Jai shares strong connection with a man named Deva (Sathya Raj), who is an arch enemy of Manasa's family. Meanwhile, Manasa also realises that Jai is romantically linked with another woman named Vennela (Anushka). What happens next will form the crux of the story, which should be watched on screen.

Good, But still Disappointing
TheFirstExecutioner11 December 2015
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+.

A decent movie, quite an old storyline with some twists
subbuparam25 July 2014
Warning: Spoilers
I would give a 7.5. It is a good movie for a first time director. It certainly does have some action sequences that go overboard and some ridiculous assumptions, but I would say as a movie lover there is yet to be a perfect movie, so some of the things are acceptable. Most movies that have an illustrious star cast end up being total bummers.

The characters are pretty well utilized except some. In a country where people drool over ridiculous movies like Chennai Express, this movie even though has a little common script has done a good job.

Prabhas has done a pretty decent job. I feel Anushka was wasted in the movie and so has Nadhiya & Sathyaraj who in my opinion, being a Tamilian, are brilliant actors.

I think if the movie needs to be branded a family entertainer, a lot of gore needs to be trashed. Explicit bloody scenes chase away families and retain only the men of a house. Brahmanandam offers a little comedy, but I think he's been under utilized to some extent as well. Overall a decent movie, one time watch. Music needs to improve couple of notches.

sivathexpandable10 May 2014
Well! Mirchi...its an awesome to movie me. I'm a fan of prabhas but and at the same time I judge the movies very carefully. Some people say that this movie has same old story.....I do agree with them but the way they filmed.....the dialogues,acting and apart that there's a new concept which has really changed my way of thinking.

"Love All", Yes we have to love all even though he's our enemy we should him give love and expect nothing from him....Love is the answer for evrey war in this world....Love can do wonders....It can stop the rivalry between individuals.....that's the message passed by the director to us.

just like All is Well in 3 Idiots......Love All in this movie.

no jagda...no tension.

Regular masala film
maheshchoure16 August 2021
What was new in this movie? The hero goes to his enemy's house and changes the opinion of everyone in the house. The movie goes into flashback with an actress who is in love with a hero. A single hero kills 20/30 people at a time.

Mirchi...! It's very hot
kumarchetan-1990116 September 2018
It's a complete mass film ! With prabhas in classy look and stylish!! Coming to the story, narration of the story is next level though it has regular story but narration of story is quite new and in 2 nd half emotions are very high , raising emotions at last very realistic, interval twist is awesome and climax is very touching !! Overall it's a superb mass film and very well executed!!

Is this some kind of a joke?
deepakkamath1624 February 2013
I am seriously worried about the falling standards of film makers and film watchers alike.And when someone says mirchi is an awesome movie,i do hope that it is some kind of a joke.What exactly did my dear morons like in this movie? There is nothing new in this movie.Just some touch me not romance and some rowdyism,the same old stinking crap that you've seen countless times.The first scene of the film itself is enough to convince you that there is nothing new here,just the same old crap-the hero is very kindhearted and strong and can beat up twenty people at once and.....must i go on? Come on man,you have got to be kidding me.Wait,there is a twist in the movie,i won't reveal that but i can guarantee you one thing-you will hardly feel it.I mean why the f*** should i care if someone belongs to some family in some stinking village in andhra? And there is a lot of drama after that and you might just confuse the flashback with the present or vice-versa while all this goes on.And finally,everything gets back to normal and the hero's love prevails and by this time,the film must have lulled you to sleep(despite all the sound).

awesome movie in prabhas career
praveen-obulreddy8910 February 2013
Jai (Prabhas) is an architect from Italy and he believes one doesn't lose anything by loving people. At the most people will fall in love with you in return. He also says we pass through this life but once so we shouldn't make it complicating for us or the others. Manasa (Richa) likes his philosophy and falls in love with him as she always finds his company soothing . She on one occasion tells him to go away from her as she is getting used to this happiness. She is soon returning to her village where killing, hurting and blood shed is the order of the day; But to her surprise she finds him already stationed in her house winning everyone's affection. The dialogue about loving others becomes a backbone for the film, it is around this line the entire story is built. Jai acts as a bridge between two warring faction families and the initial title Varadhi was apt but later on it was changed to Mirchi. Just when the talk of getting Jai married to Manasa arises, Jai reveals the story to Manasa as to why he is not interested in getting married. Who is he and why did he enter her family in the first place? We see a lot of traces from Bindas in the film, if we bring a star hero in Bindas it becomes Mirchi. Though Koratala Siva's treatment is not new it gives a fresh feel.

There are many areas where you get to see Siva's talent and potential to direct a mass film. Especially the introduction of Jai is a good example. The fight scene in which he tells the rowdies how it would be like if he hits them brings an applause in the theatre. Sometimes you ought to believe when you see the cut out he says referring to his imposing personality and height. Siva earns brownie points through dialogues which sounds like a fight, he doesn't use an action scene every where. There is an advantage if a writer becomes a director, Siva could have polished some of the scenes but in majority of the portions he elevated the scenes through dialogues.

Prabhas looks cool in his fights, especially when he wields a sword. He appears very settled in his scenes, he has already proved his worth in Chatrapathi to the masses, Darling endeared him to the family audiences. He has shown through Mirchi that if a mass hero does a film that everyone likes, the range is different. Prabhas is growing as an actor with each film. Anushka gets more marks as a naughty woman and Richa who always disappoints is just about okay. Devi Sri Prasad's music brings out the energy and the mood especially Mirchi Lanti Kurrode rocked. Brahmanandam tickled the audiences in his own inimitable style. He plays the role of Veera Pratap who gets bugged when addressed as Pratapam. There are loopholes in the story as well. The first half doesn't move first and then there is a flash back in the second half. By the time it is done, the film is wrapped up. It is definitely a problem with the screenplay.

Anushka is an uneducated girl but she works in Prabhas' office. The same house is shown in the film and many films, maybe it is a permanent set for faction movies; it doesn't change with time at all. If you can skip these small flaws, Mirchi makes for an interesting watch. It has the fights of the faction and affections of the family all well knit to make it a spicy drama. A sure shot hit this!

Old wine in a new bottle. Just OK to watch
vasili_padmapraveen10 February 2013
Mirchi.... Its really not that Hot. A special make of all mix fruit juice.

1. Sherlock Holmes predictive fight action at the first meeting of heroine 1 2. Brindavanam / bindass : hero trying to flourish the love in rivals house. U can see clear cut copy paste. Heroine taking hero out to show village. Etc etc.Brahma getting to know on where who why all about hero is very routine. Kajal = richa here sacrificing love as she got her family love in return.

Manchu manoj does same thing in bindass. In fact the first 20 minutes can be done in India somewhere in mumbai, Delhi. Italy is very expensive and unwanted. There is no location dependency.

Devi sri music is not up to mark. Just OK. I think is not paid well ;)

With out Brahma first half of the movie is utter waste. No one will be seated in chairs. What Brahma said is correct:-) he used every one (including audience )

Lets give a try to watch dude, what happens at the max.

Not an entertainer, just a time pass. My ratings 2.5/5

Likes: casting is good and every one justified it. Dialouges are fresh though the concept is very routine. Screenplay is very clean

And never missed out of the storyboard.

Routine story
sunnywithall11 February 2013
Warning: Spoilers
Yup, though it was a routine story , but was second of its kind next to Shankam (starring GopiChand ,Trisha). First Half somewhat bore ... lag in story in between Richa and Prabhas Songs in second half were boooring except Yahoon Yaahon song Anushka was sexy too.

Pro's : Prabhas dressing style.. As usual style of Prabhas , moreover formal too..Climax fight is good and is puffed with good dialogues.

Con's: Repeated story.. Boring first-half No life in songs

Story : Prabhas lives in some foreign country where he sees Richa and falls in love with her , later in some situation he gets to know that Richa is very sad and is leading a sorrow life due to her village matters. Prabhas now comes to India and joins in a college where Subbaraju , cousin of richa also studies.He makes a good friend and somehow enters in his house for vacations in his home town Irrinki , near Macherla.He changes Subba Raju's rowdy character to Lover Boy character . He also changes his father Naaginedu 's cruel character to cool character. Later Subbaraju's babai plans an attack on opponent's i.e.Satya Raj family

here comes the twist where Prabhas helps SatyaRaj's family and says that "My Family is Safe " to subbaraju's babai over phone call. But his real identity is unknown.

Now the movie scrolls back o Flash-back

Prabhas is son of Satya Raj , who is head of a village around Macherla Satya Raj's father died in fights between the opposite village, but he remains calm and moreover asks people of his village to be calm and patient so that they will become good one day.

Prabhas mom leaves husband at kid stage of him and sends back Prabhas to him at age of around 25 where he meets Anushka and falls in love . She comes to city and deeply loves Prabhas for a period and later her family chooses a bride-groom for her .Then she tells about her love towards Prabhas to his mother and makes arrangement for marriage.

Subbaraj's babai plans an attack on his family at marriage time but he saves everyone .But his mom's dies due to an injury . Then Prabhas's father, follower of non -violence asks Prabhas to get out of the village .

Now the story again runs to normal time... As time goes on , Prabhas's identity was known to Enemy's family The movie ends in a fight and joining of both the families.
