Mosagallu Movie Review: An Intriguing Premise Failing Due to Weak Narrative
Review: When it comes to film fodder, India has no shortage of scams. Mosagallu it has a solid plot and has a less explored topic on TFI. And while the movie’s premise sounds exciting on paper, the movie struggles to reach its potential.
Arjun (Manchu Vishnu) wants to get rich at any cost, as he has experienced enough poverty for life. His twin Anu (Kajal Aggarwal) is married, but faces domestic violence every day at home. The twins find an escape with the help of Vijay (Navdeep) at the call center he runs. Kumar (Suniel Shetty) is a sincere police officer who seeks to catch them before they ruin more lives. Arjun’s friend Sid (Naveen Chandra) also enjoys the lavish lifestyle once they hit a scam, but reality soon knocks on the door.
Mosagallu it has a strong and interesting premise that is let down by a weak narrative. In a movie that relies on the audience to stay interested in the characters, even when they commit a crime, the way they settle down is half-hearted. The film sells itself as a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat, but fails to arouse public curiosity. Numerous clues in the film are vague and the delay in the narrative is a test of patience.
Manchu Vishnu and Kajal Aggarwal put on a decent performance and do their characters justice, as do Navdeep and Naveen Chandra. Suniel Shetty is dependable as ever, but his character doesn’t have enough screen time or depth to show off his acting skills. The music and BGM of the Sam CS movie is fine, without giving the movie too much seriousness. Mosagallu it’s a nice attempt by Vishnu Manchu and the rest of the team to bring to light a less explored genre in Tollywood. However, for an audience that has access to global content and has seen such movies before, a gripping narrative is what they will miss out on.
