Cast and performance

Sumanth Kumar as Karthik is superb. His acting skills are surely visible on screen. He looks some what elder for the character he played and they could have taken some care in that aspect. Rest of all, is superb. Akanksha Singh as Anjali is fantastic. She has good looks as well as good acting skills. The guy who played the character of Dumbo aka Subbu is nice. Annapurnamma garu is nice. All the guys in office are nice. Childhood actors of Karthik and Anjali characters are superb. The childhood actor especially looks like Rakul Preet Singh is some shots. Every other actor played their part well.

The story of Malli Rava is a simple love story that happens at various stages of life. Screenplay is fine. Dialogues are well written.

Technical Departments

Music director Sravan Bharadwaj has done fantastic work in terms of composing songs and background music. Every song in the album is soothing to ears and are backed up by well written lyrics by Krishnakanth.

Cinematography by Satish Muthyala is good. Editing could have been more racy and crispy. Production values are apt.

Slow paced narration


Malli Raava is a story that happens between two people who are loving each other so truly from childhood itself. Their love fails because of the uncontrollable situations in their lives. In this love story, lead character Karthik is always there for his Anjali and her return to him but she is the one who always gets away from him. Parents and her mentality play big part in her life. This can also be summed up into a story that happens between a stable mind that choose only one person and an unstable mind that always seeks happiness and who want to learn from the mistakes of the failed relationship of their parents. Director Gowtam who also happens to be the writer did a nice job in handling this movie but he failed to makes it screenplay gripping and racy. If he had taken care of the screenplay, the result would have been much different . To sum up, Malli Raava is a beautiful love story which shows the mindset of the pair at various stages of life despite having some flaws.
