The commercial success maker Puri Jagannath, known for delivering biggest of comebacks like Pokiri, Temper, etc, and numerous other hits in his prolific career, is himself in need of a hit now. The director has come back to screens today, with his next release after the disastrous Paisa Vasool, which happens to be his son's launchpad, Mehbooba. Here's team AP Herald's exclusive Mehbooba first report.
The movie begins with Roshan (Akash) and Afreen (Neha Shetty) studying in college, getting close to each other with every other incident bringing them together, and Roshan begins to feel happenings and is haunted by memories of past, and he gets visions of his previous birth as well. It is later revealed that they were a loving couple separated in the previous birth. Whether Roshan and Afreen united is what the movie is all about.
Mehbooba has a decent performance by Akash and Neha Shetty(who tries hard to emote, and fairly does it too, but fails to sync her dialogues), while the rest of the cast don't have much to do in real. Music by Sandeep Chowta is lackluster, while the dialogues and direction have gone for a toss too. Puri Jagannath's screenplay in the first half is a tad better, but the second half, things go haywire, as he fails to establish a flashback that connects with the audience, and with a screenplay lacking pace and the flow, Mehbooba suffers big time, ending as another forgettable film in Puri's career.
