Reluctantly, one day, Babu puts his plan into action but ends up falling into a big mess that involves a crime and a drug mafia. What is it all about? What did Babu actually do? What happened in the end? Forms the story of the movie.
Sri Simha's energetic performance is the major highlight of the film. The entire movie revolves around his character and the way he carried it on his shoulders is worth appreciating. Naresh Agastya also acted naturally and breathed life into his character. He has delivered an impressive performance in the movie. Athulya Chandra is pretty and promising in the film. Her screen presence is an absolute delight to watch. Vennela Kishore's comedy timing made the movie even more entertaining. Satya and Brahmaji also acted naturally and delivered decent performances in the film. The rest of the actors also made their presence felt.
Director Ritesh Rana has penned an engaging script for this movie. The movie has so many interesting elements that will keep the audience stick to their chairs. Especially, the pace of narration of the director also made the movie even more intriguing and the screenplay is also crispy and quite entertaining. Production values by Chiranjeevi and Hemalatha are lavish. The music by Kaala Bhairava is too good. There are no songs in the movie but Kaala Bhairava's background score made the movie even more interesting. Cinematographer Suresh Sarangam has produced some bright visuals for the movie. Editing by Karthika Srinivas is good.
Mathu Vadalara is an interesting film with a decent plotline. The film has got some good premise and it started off on an interesting note. The first half has got a lot of fun elements when compared to the second half. At the same time, the second half deals with the actual story of the movie but still, the film unit tried not to miss the fun elements. The best part of the film is the comedy elements that are worked on Satya. At times, his comedy appears overboard but with the resources they had, the film unit pulled out a big stunner. Their efforts must be appreciated. On the whole, the film is impressive with some shortcomings.
