Malli Modalaindi Movie Review

TG Keerthi Kumar attempts to disrupt the standard rom-com cliches with Malli Modalaindi by focusing on a protagonist who is ostensibly defective and has already experienced a broken relationship. However, in an attempt to create a unique and sympathetic story, he ends up succumbing to the very cliches he sought to avoid – writing a story so clichéd that it makes you groan with the dullness of it all.

Vikram (Sumanth) is a chef who grew up in a family of strong, independent women. He’s surrounded by folks who express their minds, whether it’s his widowed grandmother (Annapoorna) or single mother (Suhasini), the former of whom always worries he’ll end up like his womanizing grandfather. His best friend is also a girl, a food blogger named Vaishali, who has feelings for him (cliche, but alright), albeit only platonically. He is married to Nisha (Varshini Sounderajan), but it’s evident that the couple’s only connection is a piece of paper. Vikram finds himself attracted to Nisha’s divorce lawyer Pavitra after a mutual divorce here and a casual flirtation there (Naina Ganguly). What was intended to be a clean slate and a new beginning quickly returns him to square one.

Keerthi does an excellent job of diving into how life after marriage appears to be more traumatic for those around the pair than for the couple themselves. Grandmothers lament that Vikram is a divorced man, neighboring women whisper that his wife has abandoned him (no, she has divorced him – corrects one of them), fathers don’t want a divorced guy as a husband for their darling children – the list goes on and on. Not to mention the fact that he is frequently reminded of his age. Where Keerthi falters is when digging into the complexities of why a man like Vikram would refuse to marry — let alone twice. Pavitra, despite being a divorce lawyer, appears to be perplexed as to why her lover would refuse to go through it all again. Another well-known divorce lawyer (Posani Krishna Murali) even ends up giving a speech about the importance of marriage and children.

However, the more you watch Malli Modalaindi, the more you realize it doesn’t have the intended effect. Vikram does not come across as the ‘confused’ guy he has been represented to be, nor does he appear to take anyone for ‘given.’ He really doesn’t want to dispute with a spouse who is bound to him by a piece of paper every day, because he’d rather have his own closet space and spend the day in the kitchen cooking up amazing dishes. Isn’t it also an outmoded concept that all relationships must end in marriage? It’s 2022, relationships have evolved, and yet Keerthi seems to want you to understand how modern partnerships operate while simultaneously honoring their antiquity. While it’s a noble idea, the finished result falls short. It doesn’t help when you witness the absurd strategy developed to make Vikram realize the alleged mistake of his ways.

Sumanth, Varshini, and Naina all do a terrific job portraying their respective personalities. They may not always be able to entice you, but they do their hardest to keep you interested. In several scenes, Naina, in particular, emotes so powerfully that she stands out – but not in a good way. Vennela Kishore is a hoot, and she has some of the funniest lines in the movie. They aren’t always politically acceptable, but his sense of comedy more than compensates. The rest of the humorous lines aren’t really funny. Suhasini, Annapoorna, Posani, and others perform admirably. Anup Rubens’ music isn’t particularly memorable. The cinematography by Shiva GRN matches the mood, however the editing by Pradeep E Ragav should be sharper.

Malli Modalaindi had the potential to be a touching, humorous story about a man who dislikes marriage but not commitment. Vikram and his team deserved a lot better.
