‘Miss India’ Review
Keerthy’s Miss India continues the flop streak of direct OTT releases. In short, the movie lacks everything an inspirational movie should offer. With a weak storyline and some boring performances, you will be glad for not watching it in a theatre.
Manasa, an ambitious young women will go against all odds, without her family support to achieve her dream of establishing a business empire single handedly. This surely looks inspirational when read but when you actually see it on screen, the movie is way much clumsy, badly written and far away from reality.
Firstly, Selecting ‘Tea’ as a tool to create a business empire will not connect to people in a country where you can get best chai in road side stalls. Secondly, the entrepreneural journey of Manasa was a very immature plot which highlights the lack of experience of Director. The real struggles and emotions in an entrepreneurial journey are not at all highlighted.
The movie feels like a TV serial for most of the time and the performances of Lead cast was not upto the mark. Jagapathi babu is good as always but didn’t had much to offer due to the weak storyline.
