Movie Review: Makkhi (2012)

Users Rating: [ratings] ★★★☆☆
Box Office: Flop

Following to the stupendous success of its Telugu version Eega, renowned filmmaker who took imaginative and creative cinema to new heights released the Hindi dubbed version of his cinematic marvel titled Makkhi. Although except from a few name changes here and there, and Hindi dubbing by the same actors or others, there’s isn’t much of a novelty factor in this one other than the sheer want for the film to be seen. As the graphical wonder makes way to the Hindi film industry today, we give you a quick sneak peek into what this film is about.

For the acclaims and accolades that it’s drawn unanimously, Makkhi happens to have one of the simplest of stories, Jaani (Nani) in madly in love with Bindu (Samantha) who runs an educational non-profitable organisation and also has a hobby of micro art. Nani keeps pursuing Bindu for more than two years but she never quite budges to his love confessions. By the time Bindu finally starts feeling for Jaani comes the villain of the tale. Sudeep (Sudeep), a multi-millionaire business, who is smitten by Bindu. Insanely pissed at not getting any response from Bindu and figuring out Jaani to be the result of it, Sudeep murders Jaani. From here starts the ultimate revenge saga as Jaani reborn as a fly. How Jaani seeks his revenge is what follows through the rest of the plot.

Times Of India
3.5 “An interesting plot, brilliant performances and path breaking CGI (according to Indian standards) make this film a must-watch! Kudos to the makers for dubbing the film in the Hindi language as well! “
3.5 “‘Makkhi gives us a refreshingly different, innovative take on a little creature one tends to swat away and forget : in SS Rajamouli’s hugely entertaining film, a housefly bests the bad guy, and comes out on top. “
Indian Express
3.0 “Director Rajamouli is able to carve a hilarious tale out of a make believe world where logic is intertwined with fantasy, some great computer graphics and visualisation.”
3.0 “Watch it for its uniqueness.”

2.0 “f all southern remakes, this is the one that could do with being re-shot with larger budgets, re-edited with snappier cuts, rather than merely being re-released.”
