Aditya(Nani) is an easy going youth who falls in love with Kiran(Anu Emanuel). He tries hard to woo her and finally manages to convince Kiran. When things seem to be going fine, a small problem leads the couple to break up with each other.
An upset Aditya lands in Hyderabad and moves on with his life. As time passes by, he starts liking Suma(Priya Shri) and reveals his tragic love story to her. Impressed by this Suma also falls flat for Aditya.
The twist in the tale arises when Aditya comes to know that Kiran is none other than Suma’s own cousin. What will Aditya do now ? How will he handle both his past and present ? Whom will he end up with finally? That forms the rest of the story.
It is no surprise that Nani is undoubtedly the heart and soul of the film. Majnu banks heavily on him and it is a cake walk for Nani who once again steals the show. He is superb as the lover boy and entertains throughout. Humour, grief, possessiveness, Nani shows all the emotions beautifully and holds the film completely. Right from the first frame, audience will own him and get connected through his role.
Anu Emanuel makes a decent debut and is very good in the first half. All her love scenes with Nani have been shown quite freshly. Vennela Kishore is hilarious in his role and lightens up the proceedings during the initial part of the second half.
The comedy that is generated through Nani’s one-liners and comedy punches are written well. The climax of the film has been handled well and showcased in an interesting way which ends the film in a very happy space.
Majnu has a very interesting twist but the way it has been showcased during the interval lacks clarity. Nani’s transformation to get back his old love, scenes like these should have been showcase even more convincingly.
Yet another debutante, Priya Sri is not convincing in her role. No fault of her, the director should have etched her role in a slightly better way. There is absolutely no novelty factor in the film as the proceedings after a point, become quite predictable.
Majnu movie rating: 3.5/5
