Prabhas, who had no notable hits after Chatrapati recovered last year with Darling, as he portrayed in a different role and it gave him enough scope for an image makeover. He played a lover boy role in Mr.Perfect and paired up with Kajal Aggarwal once again. The film is a family entertainer and Dasaradh proved that he could handle such subjects with elan. But the overdose of moral preaching tested the patience of the audience in the second half. Read on for Mr. Perfect review.
Vicky (Prabhas) is a person, who doesn"t want to compromise on anything in his life. He is working in Australia. He returns to India for his sister"s marriage.. Meanwhile, his parents (Nazar abd Tulasi) tell him that they wanted to settle an alliance for him with the daughter of his childhood friend (Muralimohan). However, Vicky refuses to marry her unless she suits his taste. The family meets Priya (Kajal) and Priya too doesn"t want to marry Vicky. After a few tugs-of-war, she loses her heart to Vicky and changes herself to suit Vicky"s taste. When they wanted to fix the alliance, Vicky refuses to marry her saying that she has no individuality, because she changed her opinions for his sake and returns to Australia. Before leaving for India, Vicky fills a form given by a chocolate firm and the company had selected a girl called Maggie (Tapsee), who thinks like him. Soon, they start dating and after a month, they think that they both could marry each other, as their mindset was similar. However, Maggie"s father (Prakash Raj) refuses the alliance saying that Vicky is headstrong. He challenges Vicky to impress his family members, who were gathering there for the marriage. Will he win Prakash Raj"s family? What happens to Kajal Aggarwal?, form the interesting part of the story.
Prabhas has got a different role to play in this film, which has two different shades. He has given a nice performance all through the film. He has maintained good timing in dialogue delivery and looks perfect in decent costumes. However, he should have avoided the rigid body language and would have been more flexible. Kajal looks gorgeous in traditional outfits without being glamorous. Especially, her smile makes the audience spellbound on many an occasions. Tapsee is the best choice for the second heroine. She has dubbed her own voice for the character and this has enhanced her image in the film. She has filled the glamour slot to some extent. Other artistes including Prakash Raj, Sayaji Shinde, Murali Mohan, Viswanath, Viswanath Kasi, Sameer have done justice to their roles. Brahmanandam, Raghubabu, Gauthamraju and Master Bharat have done their best to tackle the funny bones of the audience.
Dialogues by Abburi Ravi were good in parts. Music by Devisri Prasad is okay and almost all the songs are situational. All the lyrics are meaningful. Though a senior editor like Marthand K Venkatesh worked for the film, he failed to cut boring scenes in the second half. Though, the story in the first half is good, director Dasaradh has failed to retain the same tempo in the second half.
As a whole, it is a cliched movie, only family audience would like the film, and the youth could easily avoid it. Though the film is sure to ring the Box Office, it would be accepted by family audience. Watch the film for Prabhas" performance and Kajal"s cute smile.
