What’s it about!
Vicky (Prabhas) is expert in gaming software and lives in Australia with his friends. He hates adjustments in life and thinks that one shouldn’t sacrifice one’s comforts for others but his father (Nassar) tells him to adjust in life to get more contentment in life. His father asks him to get married to Priya (Kajal Agarwal), his friend’s daughter, when he comes down to India for his sister’s marriage. Vicky agrees to see Priya for 10 days closely – sort of dating – and then will let them know his decision. Priya also reluctantly agrees. Their relationship begins on negative note but soon they hit off well and fall in love. When everything is going well, Vicky drop a bomb that he is not in favour of marrying Priya as she has sacrificed all her personal likings for him, leaving Priya in shock. Vicky meets Maggy in Australia and starts dating her. Fate brings Priya to Australia and how Vicky changes his perception towards life and relationships forms the rest of the drama.
Should a guy select a girl who thinks and behaves like him as life partner or should he prefer a girl who cares for him and is ready to adjust to his lifestyle ( Neela Alochinche Ammayi Kaavala, Neekosame Alonchinche Ammayi Kaavala )?
Mr. Perfect deals with this and director Dasaradh has definitely picked up good plot line to weave a good romantic entertainer. As a director, he succeeds in handling the movie entertainingly to the most part though many of the scenes are so predictable. With cool visuals, youthful lead actors and some good music, he makes the film a good entertainer. The film’s major strength lies in it’s the great onscreen chemistry between – Prabhas and Kajal. They look almost like a real life couple.
The film’s screenplay writer Hari has used all the tricks and plot devices that we normally see in these kind of romantic entertainers targeted at family audiences. So Mr.Perfect doesn’t offer any novelty, only thing is that it makes us to sit through without complaining. You can easily guess what is going to happen next, and you can even predict the arrival of Tapsee in the second half and that hero would definitely chose the right girl in the end. Everything is guessable but the catch here is ‘packaging’. Mr.Perfect scores in packaging, thanks to director Dasaradh and producer Dil Raju.
Prabhas looks cool in the role of a confused youth but his dialogue delivery is contrived as a posh guy. But his screen presence with Kajal is charming. As a village belle with strong individuality, Kajal steals the show. In the first half of the movie, the film completely works because of her presence. Tapsee in very small role is cute and she has dubbed her own voice, which is right for her character that is born and brought up in Australia. Of the other cast members, Nassar gets full marks in the role of Prabhas’s father. Prakash Raj has nothing much to do. So are Shayaji Shinde and K Vishwanath . Brahmandam’s comedy doesn’t work.
The film has stunning visuals and carries cool and bright color pattern through out the movie in sync with the theme. Cameramen Vijay Chakravarthy has been following the same pattern in all his films – Bommarillu, Konchem Istam Konchem Kastam , etc. Though the visuals are pleasant, as a cameraman he is not bringing much variety.
Dialogues are pretty good (by Abburi Ravi ). Devi Sri Prasad has rehashed his old tunes but they are effective on the screen and enhanced the mood of the movie. Editing is neat.
Director Dasaradh ’s success lies in its presentation. There are his trademark styles – strong characterization of heroine, some bhavukatha, and thought provoking one-liners here and there. Producer Dil Raju has thrown in huge budget to look the movie look cool.
Mr.Perfect can be watched with your family and friends for its neat narration with right casting (especially the jodi of Prabhas and Kajal), good music, and cool visuals. The movie scores big on packaging than novelty. Director Dasaradh has come up with a winner after long time as it would definitely appeal to youth and family audiences. It resembles to several of other super hit romantic dramas, and uses all the tricks but still it works, for its packaging.
