Mukhachitram Movie Review In Telugu: After receiving a National Award for his first film, “Colour Photo,” director Sandeep Raj decided to switch to writing for his next project, “Mukhachitram.” The film features notable actors who were the first to generate buzz, and after the release of the trailer, expectations increased twofold. So, carrying those expectations, the film was released today. Without further ado, let’s dive into the review and see whether the film lives up to the hype.
Things appear to be going smoothly for Raj (Vikar Vasista), a doctor who had planned to wed Maya (Ayesha Khan), but for some reason he weds Mahathi (Priya Vadlamani). However, Raj’s life completely takes an unexpected turn when Maya and Mahathi both met with an accident, resulting in Maya’s face becoming deformed and Mahathi going into a coma. Last but not least, how did Raj deal with issues when Maya returned with Mahathi’s face after plastic surgery, which you need to see on screen?
Cast & Crew
The main lead actors were Vikas Vasista, Vishwak Sen, Priya Vadlamani, Chaitanya Rao, and Ayesha Khan. Sandeep Raj wrote the story, the screenplay, and the dialogue; Gangadhar directed the movie; Kaala Bhairava handled the music; Sreenivas Bejugam handled the cinematography, and Pavan Kalyan Kodati handled the editing. The movie was made by Pradeep Yadav and Mohan
|Music Director||Kaala Bhairava|

|Cast||Vikas Vasista, Vishwak Sen, Priya Vadlamani, Chaitanya Rao, and Ayesha khan|
The movie starts off very routinely by introducing the main characters before diving into Maya’s love story for Raj, which was a rather dull track. There was no excitement in the first act, and the movie only becomes interesting in the second act when two accidents involving Mahathi, who is Ra, occur. Unfortunately, that attention-grabbing aspect of Mukhchitram is limited to the trailer.
Although the court drama doesn’t thrill you in the process of proving Raj is innocent, Vishwak Sen captures the audience’s attention with his swag, but the second half also lacks any unexpected elements. The second half begins intriguingly by revealing the twist of Maya’s face being replaced with Mahathi’s face and why Maya is suing Raj and taking revenge.
Speaking of the performances, Priya Vadlamani as Mahathi did a good job by portraying two shades, she performed well, Ayesha Khan as Maya is just okay, and Chaitanya Rao who is known for the 31 Weds 21 series but his performance and his dialogue delivery are lacking. Vikas Vasista, who previously impressed as a rural auto driver in Cinema Bandi, is good as Raj but needs to improve significantly.
Sandeep raj may have written the tale much better, but first director Gangadhar struggled to tell the story due to the film’s linear screenplay. However, Sandeep Raj as a writer and Gangadhar as a director both failed to produce a quality work and keep the audience interested.
Technically, Mukhachitram is only fair, Sreenivas Bejugam’s cinematography is passable, Kaala Bhairava’s songs aren’t up to par, but the rest of the team performed admirably in accordance with the demands of the movie.
Overall, Mukhachitram is a solid collection of bits and pieces, so give it a shot this weekend if you have no other plans. Otherwise, pass it up.
