Movie: Mosagallu
Cast: Vishnu Manchu, Kajal Aggarwal, Suniel Shetty, Navdeep
Director: Jeffrey Gee Chin
Rating: 1.75/5
Produced By: Manchu Vishnu
Release Date: 19th March 2021

Story: Vishnu Manchu (Arjun) and Kajal Aggarwal (Anu) are two siblings who had bad childhood life as they are from a poor family. They both look for a better life and over time Arjun who will be working as an employee in a call center joins hands with his boss Navdeep (Vijay). As Vijay gets impressed with Arjun’s skills, Arjun then comes up with an idea where their motive is to call the U.S residents and force them to pay the tax. Anu who is a skilled accountant will be guiding the team and within no time they earn millions. At a stage, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) officials get to know about the scam and reach out to Hyderabad’s sincere police officer Suniel Shetty (ACP Ajeet Kumar). The rest of the story is about how Ajeet Kumar leads the case and how the sibling Arjun and Anu try no escape from the system.

Performances: While Vishnu gave a good performance in the role of Arjun, Kajal Aggarwal steels the show with her stellar performance in the role of Anu. Naveen Chandra and Navdeep’s performance are just ok. Sunil Shetty’s has exceelled as a sincier cop but his character is not so strong. And there are many more charcters which do not have a much impact.

Analysis: It is a known fact that Manchu Vishnu who has provided the story for this film has failed to mould the story with interesting elements. The entire screenplay is slow with many boring aspects from start to end. Director failed to show the scam scenes interestingly. The quarrels between the lead actors are very silly which can be shown much better. Coming to the technical department, Sheldon Chow’s cinematography is good with visuals. Though there is no particular album from this film, Sam CS background score is an added advantage.

Positives:

+ Lead Actors Performance
+ Main Plot and Few Scenes in First Half
+ Music

Negatives:

 Boring Screenplay
 Direction
 Dragged Second Half
– Lack of High Moments
 Predictable & Illogical scenes

Verdict: On a whole, though the plot is a bit interesting the makers have completely failed to present it. With boring and predictable screenplay it is not a worthy watch. Vishnu’s dream for a Box-office hit will continue.
