The film opens with Megha Swarup (Megha Akash), who tries to commit suicide on a train track but changes his mind in the last few seconds. Then a broken Megha said that he was looking for peace and hoped to find it. The next scene takes us into his college life; Of course, we will know the circumstances that brought them to the railroad tracks.
Dear Megha is a remake of the Canadian blockbuster Dia:
A version called Telugu recently premiered on YouTube. Those who’ve seen Daya may not be too happy with Dear Megha. The first half of the film retains its original soul, but then there are stark contrasts. Although the dialogues are similar, there are differences in the delivery of meaning.
Unlike Dias Khushi, who is introverted and can barely smile, Megha is cheerful and has a bright mood. Cameraman Andrews sprayed Dear Megha in bright pink; the wall colours of the two main couple’s houses make it clear that the director wants to change something in the story.
Megha Swaroop is attracted to college by Arjun (Arjun Somayajula), who is handsome, kind, and good at drawing. He wanted to start a conversation with her, but each time he failed to do so. He wanted a good reason to strike up a conversation, and while he was ready, he found out that he was leaving college. This is just the first surprise; As the movie says, life is full of surprises.
When she returned home moments later, she found Arjun entering the elevator he was in.
He had moved into the apartment across from him. They fell in love. However, before they could discuss their next move, a shock came. Megha is depressed and is on her way to the train. More bends followed.
Arun Adit fits into the role of community, and Pavitra Lokesh reprises her role as her mother. Director Sushant Reddy rushed first and slowed down later. Although fun, the story seems inconsistent. The songs are good. What stands out is the appearance of Arun Adit; Megha Akash was disappointing at first but was fine after a break. He made the correct expression.
This film would have been better with compelling performances. Other than that, Megha Arjun’s route was nothing to complain about in the first half, so we can’t empathize with him.
The film moves steadily in the first half, which has some pretty sweet and weird moments. If you’re ready to put a stop to the suspicions, chances are you’ll have a good time, at least until the movie pauses for a break. The second hour was fun and quite fluid. Drama is built, and a complex love story becomes interesting because conflicts between characters arise.
The so-called suspense, when it unfolds, doesn’t carry a punch:
That doesn’t want to deviate from the warm-up story. This movie you want to love because your heart is in the right place. But how you want it to not do its job superficially. The plodding speed of the film plays a controversial sport here.
On the other hand, Dear Megha is no ordinary love triangle story where two men compete for love for the same woman. The two love stories – about Megha with Arjun and Adhi with Megha – are different. You can’t compare it to a love story in the past.
Megha Akash’s cast breathes life into their characters, and their presence in emotional scenes brightens the screen. Arun Adit’s intense performance as Adhi, who arrives just to support Megha, adds weight to the story. Together, the two keep the class on screen. Debutant Arjun Somayayula is as expressive as a log, and Pavitra Lokesh, who plays her doctor as the original, puts on a competent performance. The director drew impressive contributions from almost all of the characters. The commendable aspect is that he doesn’t let any of these characters stray from the story.
Music composer Gowra Hari released several melodies, of which Sid Sriram’s Bagundhi Ee Kaalame stands out. In many ways. Dear Megha resonates with a touching story to read in a novel or newspaper, but the intensity is lacking. Despite the over-emotional portrayal, this film requires a lot of patience. The main actors’ performances can be helpful for the weekend.
