Movie Review: Miss India
Director: Narendra Nath
Starring : Keerthy Suresh, Rajendra Prasad, Jagapathi Babu, Nadhiya
The Miss India film is finally getting a live digital release today. Directed by Narendra Nath, Keerthy Suresh played the female lead in the film. Jagapathi Babu, Rajendra Prasad, and Nadhiya played important roles in the film. the film is now released on Netflix.
Manasa Samyukta (Keerthy Suresh) comes from a middle-class family and he wants to be a businessman. But he and his family moved to the USA after his brother got a job at American University. He completed his MBA. There, he meets Vijay (Naveen Chandra) and starts dating him. Vijay proposed to Manasa but he refused the proposal and walked out of his house. He then realized to fulfill his dream and start the Chai business. Samyuktha leaves his house and starts a Chai Business with the inspiration of his grandfather (Rajendra Prasad). Can a young girl like Samyuktha achieve her dreams?
Miss India is packed with many surprises. For example, in the middle of a film, Manasa suddenly becomes a ‘mass character’. Her dream makes chai have to face the heat of the KSK coffee kingdom.
Keerthy Suresh is the show-stealer of the film. We can say that the actress carried the whole film on her shoulders and wowed the audience with her appearance. Jagapathi Babu’s performance in the role of Kailash Shiva Kumar is quite good. Naresh and Rajendra Prasad were efficient in their brief supporting roles.
The film lacks basic emotions and takes a long time to enter the main story. The film is set in the US but not a single scene shows the American environment. Keerthy Suresh looks out of place in several scenes and is confused because there is no depth in the writing for him to do.
The film was scheduled to be released on April 17, 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is finally released on Netflix today.
