Market Raja MBBS
How about a mix of all three genres with an additional dose of spirit angle? This is what ‘Market Raja MBBS’, starring Arav in the lead, is all about.
Market Raja (Arav) is a don who is ready to do anything for power and money. He is protected by Minister Radha (Sayaji Shinde) and rules some portions of the city.
While Market Raja and Radha hatch a plan and bump off the latter’s rival Ramadas (Hareesh Peradi), the police rope in an encounter specialist (Pradeep Rawat) to put an end to Raja’s atrocities.
The operation against Raja goes wrong and an innocent medical student Chandrababu (Vihaan) gets killed. Interestingly, Chandrababu was in love with Vanisri (Kavya Thappar), a fellow medico.
But she falls for Raja. However, Raja turns her down saying a gangster can’t be in a relationship. Now, Chandrababu’s spirit enters into the body of Raja.
As a rsult, Raja becomes innocent, meek and even goes to medical college. Now, Raja’s associate Das (Adithya), lawyer Varadha (Chaams) and others have to ensure that no one knows about the change in Raja.
Arav graduates as cinema actor and the actor has given his best. But he should hone himself more. Kavya Thappar is okay in a regular role, while Nikesha Patel’s character, including her name in the film, is in bad taste comedy.
Rohini and Radhika lend solid support with their seasoned performance, and the likes of Vihaan, Chaams, Adhithya, Sayaji Shinde, Hareesh Peradi and Pradeep Rawat are adequate.
Cinematography by K V Guhan and musical score by Simon King add value to the proceedings. The first half is entertaining and engaging, while the latter half lacks the pep. Also, the post-interval session is dragging.
Though the film is a comeback of sorts for Saran, who is suffering from an array of failures, he could have concentrated more on the script to make it even more better.
