Most Eligible Bachelor Movie Review & Rating
Most Eligible Bachelor Movie Review: Most Eligible Bachelor is a romantic dramedy directed by Bommarillu Baskar starring Akhil Akkineni as an NRI and Pooja Hegde as a standup comic. This wholesome entertainer is produced by Vasu Varma and Bunny Vas.
Harsha (Akhil Akkineni) is a non-resident Indian and the most eligible bachelor who wants to get married. Having a certain job and financial security, he explores life king size. He comes to India to find a suitable partner. In the process, he meets a stand comedian Vibha (Pooja Hegde) but things did not work as Harsha's family rejects Vibha. Meanwhile, Harsha continues following Vibha to woo her and convince her to marry. Later, Vibha reveals that she is not interested in getting married. Why is she not interested in wedding? What did Harsha do then? What happens in the end? Forms the film's story.
Akhil Akkineni is extremely impressive in the role of Harsha. Since his character is of his age, it looks easy for the actor to unfold the action on the big screen. At the same time, the backdrop suits him too. Compared to his previous outings, Akhil displayed a great variation and improvement in his performance. Pooja Hegde, on the other hand, is extremely good. Pooja's character has got a lot of variations and she even has the scope to perform her part well. The chemistry between the two is good too. Murali Sharma, Pragathi, Sudigali Sudheer, Vennela Kishore, Jayaprakash, Posani Krishna Murali, and others made their presence felt.
The camera work and the background score are the major plus points in the movie. The visuals are grand and colorful. The music is good too. A couple of songs that became a big hit were placed nicely. The background score helped the film elevate the emotion well too. The film's writing is impressive in the first half but falls flat in the second half. The production values are grand and lavish.
Most Eligible Bachelor has a thin storyline but it has got a lot of scopes to explore. Director Bhaskar who made a comeback to Tollywood is already known for dealing with strong yet sensitive emotions. However, for this project, the director put his focus on delivering the entertainment rather than pulling the project off with emotions. The first half looks fun and entertaining with a lot of interesting elements. However, the second half falls flat with weak writing and it gets into a preachy mode.
