Mukhachitram Review: Before beginning work on his second film, “Mukhachitram,” director Sandeep Raj shifted to scripting after receiving a National Award for his first film, “Colour Photo.” Celebrity actors sparked initial interest in the film, and when the trailer was released, anticipation levels rose. With these expectations in mind, the film launched today. Without further ado, let’s dive into the review and determine whether or not the film is any good.
Dr. Raj (Vikar Vasista), who had originally intended to marry Maya (Ayesha Khan) but instead weds Mahathi, appears to be proceeding according to his original plan. Raj’s world is turned upside down when Maya and Mahathi are involved in an accident that leaves Maya’s face disfigured and Mahathi in a coma. Finally, it is essential to see how Raj handled the situation when Maya returned with Mahathi’s face after plastic surgery.
Cast & Crew
Vikas Vasista, Vishwak Sen, Priya Vadlamani, Chaitanya Rao, and Ayesha Khan played prominent roles. Sandeep Raj wrote, directed, scored, and shot the film; Sreenivas Bejugam handled the cinematography; Kaala Bhairava composed the music; and Pavan Kalyan Kodati was responsible for the editing. This motion picture was directed by Pradeep Yadav and Mohan S. Rajan.

The beginning of the film introduces the key characters and establishes the love tale between Maya and Raj. When two catastrophes involving Mahathi (who is Ra) occur in the second act, the film’s opening act becomes suddenly exciting. Unfortunately, the mesmerising appeal of Mukhchitram is limited to the trailer.
While attempting to prove Raj’s innocence, the courtroom drama fails to captivate, but Vishwak Sen keeps the audience enthralled with his swagger. Sadly, the second half of the film fails to surprise as well. The second half follows up where the first left off, intriguingly revealing the twist of Maya’s face being swapped with Mahathi’s face and Maya’s motivation for suing Raj and her desire for revenge.
Performance-wise, Priya Vadlamani as Mahathi was excellent due to her nuanced portrayal of the character; Ayesha Khan as Maya was adequate; and Chaitanya Rao, who is recognised for his performance in the 31 Weds 21 series, was disappointing in both his acting and line delivery. Cinema Bandi’s Vikas Vasista, who was exceptional as an auto driver in a remote area, does an adequate job as Raj, but he has a great deal of space for improvement.
Though Sandeep raj may have written a more engaging script, the film’s linear screenplay made it challenging for first-time director Gangadhar to tell the plot. Neither Sandeep Raj as a writer nor Gangadhar as a director was able to captivate or amaze the audience.
Mukhachitram is merely ordinary, the cinematography by Sreenivas Bejugam is fine but not outstanding, and the music by Kaala Bhairava is not amazing, but the rest of the crew did an excellent job fitting the film’s needs.
If you have nothing better to do this weekend, I would suggest giving Mukhachitram a shot because, all things considered, it is a fairly excellent assortment of songs. If not, you must decline the offer.
