The movie deals largely about the economic offenses, white collar crimes, and social responsibility. Mallanna is super-hero film and all about fight against the rich and corrupt who put away millions of ill gotten wealth in foreign countries. Mallanna has a strong social message but it is told with lots of entertainment, peppy music and great action stunts.
Mallanna Movie Story

The movie starts with a huge crowd praying at a Murugan Temple, where they submit their problems as petition to Lord Mallanna. They write their problem in plain paper. The prayers are collected into a tree, most of which are for financial help from their god. Shortly, their problems seem getting solved and the God’s name becomes popular.

The CBI (Krishna/Prabhu) starts investigation on this uncharacteristic matter whereas Mallanna (Vikram) is a strict CBI officer, and cool and straight forward personality, whose duty is under the commands of the joint director. Mallana himself involves him in a mission to uncover the black money which is earned by officers & politicians, who are corrupted and kept it in foreign banks. He has to catch soon who are involved in these.

Subbulakshmi (Shriya Saran) is a naughty girl and meticulous about small things. She follows Mallanna, where he goes, and tries to flirt with him. Once Mallanna comes to know that she wants to trap him in trouble by her fake love. Mallanna realizes that she is a daughter of Ashish Vidyatri who has illegal property worth Rs.1000 crore. Does he accept her love? What is the deal? All this forms the rest of the story.


Vikram has given best performance in his manner with different get up which includes a woman’s attire. Shreya, plays heroine in this film, with sizzling hot role and excellent dancing skill. Superstar Krishna has played important role and has done justice to his personality. The others characters are Ashish Vidyarthi, Prabhu, YG Mahendran and Mukhesh Tiwari have also done well.

Technical aspects:

Musical score by Devi Sri Prasad sounded good on tracks, and seems to be appreciative on the screens. All the songs have become popular and the audio has been a hit for the past several weeks. Devi Sri Prasad has made Vikram render the songs on his own so the experiment has worked out well. Sahiti has penned the dialogues and lyrics. However the lyrics are good to listen, they fail to harmonization with the lip movement. The director, Susi Ganeshan needs to be complimented for a good story.

Critic’s view:

Brahmanandam’s comedy is average. If it was handled well, the film could have been a blockbuster. The movie was missing elements that would appeal to the Telugu audience. The first half began on a very plain way, even the second half did not have special to offer in terms of songs, stunts or intensity of the scenes.
