Makkhi is a revenge saga. Jani (Nani), who is in love with Bindu (Samantha), always chases his lover but Bindu like all other heroine feels shy to express her love. The twist enters the film when the villain Sudeep (Sudeep), an ultimate bad guy likes to fulfil his sensual desires through Bindu.
Bindu has special feelings over Jani. When, Sudeep finds out Bindu’s love for Jani, he murders him. Jani is reborn as, not a human but as a house fly. Lover returns in the avatar of a super-insect, with headphones-shaped eyes, to seek revenge. From here on we can see the revenge drama of Jani.
Kannada star Sudeep plays the role of the villain. He has done his role perfectly.
Nani’s doesn’t have a big role however he brings smile in the initial part of the movie.
Samantha is composed and calm in her role. Her scenes with Nani add charm to the story.
M.M. Keeravani’s music composing and sound design adds some more assets to the movie.
Costumes, art direction and editing are appreciable.
SS Rajamouli, who has earlier given us Vikramarkudu (Rowdy Rathore) and Maryada Ramana (Son of Sardar) has given this film, which touches the heart of the audience by his sheer brilliance and idea of using an animated housefly as a main character.
Makkhi is a good blend of VFX, animation, visualisation, computer graphics and great screenplay. The movie is a good watch for not only kids and animation lovers, but also for the adults.
On the whole, MAKKHI is a landmark film.
