Feel-good moments in the first half
High production values
Forced emotions at times
Mr. Majnu is a new-age love story in which Akhil plays a Casanova. With an impressive first half, an average second half, the movie has a good mix of family, and emotional elements.
Akhil fits the role perfectly and Nidhi Aggerwal is pretty good. Thaman’s music is another major highlight for the movie. Though there are no dull movements, the movie doesn’t have high movements either which makes it a decent watch.
Akhil, who is in a desperate need for a hit can heave a huge sigh of relief with this movie.
