Director Maruthi aimed a small-budget flick Manchi Rojulochaie this Diwali with Santosh Shobhan and Mehreen Kaur playing the lead roles. The film unit is extremely happy and confident about the film’s success. Maruthi’s best friend SKN produced the film. The film was released today. Check out the film’s review here.
Gopalam (Ajay Ghosh) is someone who is always feared in life. He is scared of too many things. When he comes to know that his daughter Padma (Mehreen) fell in love with Santu (Santhosh Sobhan), he starts worrying that Santu will cheat Padma. After coming across a death of a dear one, Gopalam begins that he would also die soon. Gopalam does not want Padma to marry Santu and creates trouble in his daughter’s love life. Despite all the hurdles, how did Santu convince Gopalam to marry Padma forms the story of Manchi Rojulochaie?
Santhosh Shoban looks like the guy next door in this film. He looks simple and natural. Mehreen Kaur looked beautiful in the film and her styling is on point. The chemistry between the lead pair is the major plus point of the film. However, the hero of the film is Ajay Ghosh who drives the story forward. Maruthi penned a very interesting characterization for him and was successful in achieving the same. Ajay Ghosh displayed a great performance in the movie. Vennela Kishore, Naveen, Viva Harsha, and others are good in their roles. The film’s cast played their parts well and made their presence felt.
The choreography of the film is very good in the film. The two songs are captured nicely. More than the songs, the background score is good. Visually, the film is appealing. The dialogues are fun. The makers pulled out a stunner in a shoe-string budget. The editing is decent. The production values are good. Technically, the film is not very sound but there are not many flaws too.
Director Maruthi is known for coming up with hilarious comedy entertainers, laced with a strong message that is told in a subtle and sensible manner. He has attempted the same for this film too. Maruthi wanted to convey that fear always kills a person and those who keep fear away will be happy in life. The story is good as a single point but the way he designed the screenplay does not do enough justice for th story.
In the film, the director brings too many characters on the screen and all of them fail big time to impress the viewers. The runtime could have been less so that the point would have been made stronger. Because of the drags in the second half, the film appears to be never-ending.

The corona angle in the second half is good but it could have been worked on to generate much fun. The characterizations are decent and leave an impact. The positives of the film are the performances, comedy, tracks, and storyline. Nevertheless, the film is watchable for comedy.
Manchi Rojulochaie is worth a watch!
