After her 2018 film, Bhagamathie, Anushka Shetty returned to the silver screen with Miss Shetty Mr Polishetty, alongside the talented Naveen Polishetty. Amid high anticipation, the film has released in theaters today. Dive into our review to discover its verdict.
Anvitha Ravali Shetty (Anushka Shetty) is a London-based master chef. She is determined to become a mother without marriage, leading her to choose stand-up comedian Sidhu Polishetty (Naveen Polishetty) as her partner for pregnancy. Sidhu remains oblivious to her intentions and falls for her, only to be stunned when her true motive is revealed. Does Sidhu agree to her unconventional plan? Does he assist her in realizing her motherhood dream? What drives Anvitha to make this life-altering decision? The film holds all the answers.
- The film explores a straightforward yet challenging concept, which director Mahesh Babu P handles adeptly.
- Anushka Shetty delivers an outstanding performance as Anvitha Ravali Shetty, portraying a bold and pragmatic character which fears the commitment of marriage. She not only looks stunning on screen but also offers a nuanced performance, marking a remarkable comeback.
- Naveen Polishetty once again showcases his prowess in a role tailor-made for him. His witty humor and wholesome comedy captivate the audience from the moment he appears on the screen. He also handles emotional sequences with finesse.
- Although his role is limited, Murali Sharma delivers a commendable performance, particularly in the pre-climax. The supporting actors adequately fulfill their roles.
- In addition to the performances, the film boasts high production quality, with Gopichand’s background score masterfully setting the mood.
- While the plot is simple and well-executed, the director could have accelerated the pace in the second half.
- The first half feels somewhat sluggish, with a few unnecessary scenes that disrupt the narrative’s flow. Injecting more emotional depth into the story could have strengthened the audience’s connection to the characters.
- Characters played by Murali Sharma, Sonia Deepti, and Abhinav Gomatam could have been given more prominence.
- Writer and director Mahesh Babu P impresses with his work, delivering his best output. However, more attention to screenwriting was needed.
- The soundtrack by Radhan includes a trio of melodious songs, while Gopi Sundar’s score significantly enhances the film’s impact. Nirav Shah’s cinematography is impeccable, with every frame exuding richness.
- Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao could have been crisper. The film benefits from high production values, thanks to the production house.
On the whole, Miss Shetty Mr Polishetty is a delightful emotional comedy drama featuring outstanding performances by Anushka Shetty and Naveen Polishetty, a commendable score, and emotional moments. However, the film grapples with sluggish pacing in both halves. Nevertheless, it is a worthwhile cinematic experience this weekend.
