Mugguru is intended to be a formula commercial comedy but ends up as a cruel joke on the audience. It has a morbid story told insipidly with actors finding themselves playing in stupid characters in a collage of tepid incidents.
Three school dropouts Pavan( Navadeep), Maruthi (Rahul) and Anji (Srinivas) want to make it big by kidnapping businessman JP (Ahuthi Prasad) and end up saving him when he gets a heart attack. As a matter of gratitude, he offers the threesome jobs in his company in Malaysia and offers to get them married to his three daughters Shalini (Shraddha Das), Yamini (Sanjana), Mohini (Soumya).
The three friends land in Malaysia and join their jobs. Bade Miya (Ali), a confidant of JP dislikes them and creates problems. However, the three friends succeed in winning the hearts of JP’s three daughters. Then Bala Tripura Sundari (Reema Sen) arrives on the scene giving a scare to the threesome. There is the don (Brahmanandam) and his dragon girls to contend with. The rest of the story deals with kidnap galore that leads to a predictable conclusion.
Navadeep tries hard to make sense out of a senseless situations. Rahul and Srinivas are all at see. Ahuthi Prasad looks neither funny nor comic. Shraddha Das, Sanjana, Soumya and Reema Sen look like disposable glamour props. Dharmavarapu Subramanyam, Ali and Brahmanandam have been cramped to perform. All others are just blink and miss characters.
VN Aditya comes out with a story line that is bland and makes it more dissipated with ill-etched characters and contrived situations. The tag line maha mayagallu is a misnomer. Situational comedy implies a situation that inspires comedy and dialogues that enhance the humour quotient. Both are totally missing. Dialogues are stale. Music is ordinary. Cinematography has nothing much to talk about. The film is technically poor, may be because of low production costs.
It is a great tragedy that the so-called comedy Mugguru has come out of the prestigious banner of Suresh Productions of Guinness record holding and award winning producer D Rama Naidu.
The film is so idiotically made that it is a frontal assault on the intelligence of the audience. Even fools can’t be fooled with such a foolish film.
In the opening scenes of the film are shown the proverbial three monkeys – see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil – which represent the three male lead characters. Perhaps it is better for you not to see Mugguru, and not to hear or speak about it.
