What are the situations Mukunda faced?
Is Mukunda successful in winning over Chairman?
Is Mukunda love story successful?
The answers for the above questions form the rest of the story.
Varun Tej made his debut with this film. He looks very promising but at the same time his face reveals his nervousness. Varun Tej’s dialogue delivery and performance is good but still he must work on several aspects to become a good actor in the industry. It’s an OK debut for Varun tej.
Pooja Hegde is one of the happening and promising actress. She looks damn cute and she was seen in traditional role in this film. Pooja Hegde steals your hearts with her presence in the film.
Rao Ramesh is one actor to watch out for in this film. He has performed very well. His dialogue delivery is excellent. He adds one better role to his career with this film.
Actors like Prakash Raj, Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao and Nasser made their presence felt.

Mukunda From Reviewer View :
Mukunda has carried a lot of expectations since the beginning. Be it a debut film of Varun tej or its being directed by the successful director Srikanth Addala, the audience eagerly waited for the big day. But it’s really disappointing to say that it is a disappointing effort. The film failed to reach the expectations of the audience as well as Mega Fans.
Mukunda is mainly targeted on Youth and the director reveals it in the beginning itself and as a result the complete story revolves around a young guy from a rural background. Srikanth Addala should be praised for choosing the subjects that are very natural and which happen in between us. All the other film makers are involved in making subjects based on Mafia, Revenge Drama, Love but Srikanth travels to the rural areas infact he enters our houses to portray our own story on screen. We get connected easily to his stories but it did not happen with Mukunda. For some reason, Mukunda failed to connect our heart and it was struck in mind to find the reason WHY?
The debut hero Varun Tej was shown in a promising way in the trailers and posters but infact, he looked very nervous throughout the film. Some sort of hesitation and fear of success is clear on his face. His screen presence is good. His dialogue delivery is good but he could not present big dialogues properly. Varun Tej debut is not impressive and he needs to work out well to justify his tag “Mega Hero.” Pooja Hegde is the girl for whom maximum audience entered theatres today. She is gorgeous in the film and reached the expectations. She has a scope of reaching top place in the industry if planned her career properly. The cinematography by Manikandan is outstanding. The editing could have been better in the second half. The music and BGM by Mickey J Meyer is impressive and it is very pleasant.
The dialogues in Srikanth Addala films are heart touching and there are many meaningful and simple yet meaningful dialogues in this film. The way Srikanth writes resembles the voice of common man. Few examples of Srikanth Addala direction is that he has chosen a simple and natural story where the lead actors come across each other only at the time of interval though they roam in same places. Generally, we travel to different places daily and we may not notice few persons in the journey though they sit, walk very close to us but when time comes something that was already written comes into reality. The director tried to impart a message especially to youth by saying us to realize our strength and weakness to have a successful ending to our story penned by God. The execution has gone wrong and it affected the final result of the film. There might be an effect on collections too!
The viewers have seen the best of the best from Srikanth Addala in SVSC and this time Srikanth has come down a step by selecting a simple story for a debutant. The narration fell flat and the intensity of emotions he has portrayed in the first half want carried to the second half and the anxiety in the audience started decreasing gradually and the viewers ended up feeling bored. One more interesting part of the film is that There Is No Single Dialogue between the Hero and Heroine in the entire film but still you enjoy watching the lead pair on screen with good Background Score. Srikanth Addala tries to make everything seem very natural. Finally, Mukunda is a disappointing film but it did not fail in making you excited at several points in the film.
ANDHRAVILAS single line Verdict :
Mukunda is disappointing but can be watched once! A onetime watch!!
First Half : Good & Interesting
Second Half : Ok
Rating : 2.5/5
