Makkhi Movie Review

Ratings:4/5  Makkhi Review by Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN (IBNlive)
In Makkhi, the Hindi dubbed version of the blockbuster Telugu film Eega, a man is reborn as a housefly so he can avenge his own death. Few films are as wildly imaginative and as consistently entertaining as this one from director SS Rajamouli, who takes popular reincarnation sagas like Karan Arjun and Karz, and turns them on their heads. The fly becomes a character you root for, and incredibly, you can see characteristics of Jaani the human in the tiny bug. The animation in Makkhi is unfussy, but this is a great example of how the idea is truly the star.I’m going with four out of five for SS Rajamouli’s Makkhi. Make sure you don’t miss it; it’s the most fun you’ll have had at the cinema in a long time!

Ratings:4/5  Makkhi Review by Taran Adarsh Site:Bollywood Hungama
MAKKHI, the dubbed Hindi version of the Telugu blockbuster hit EEGA, does exactly that. Original, inventive, innovative and imaginative, MAKKHI raises the bar of films made in India. At a time when most dream merchants in Bollywood are concentrating on mindless entertainers that kiss goodbye to logic, Rajamouli strikes the right balance between logic and entertainment in MAKKHI. The scale of the film is colossal, the plot is invigorating and the outcome leaves you mesmerized. Rajamouli targets not just the kids, but the kid in every adult and you can't help but root for the fly as it seeks vengeance from the cold-blooded and hardhearted assassin. On the whole, MAKKHI is a landmark film. You ought to watch certain films in your lifetime. MAKKHI is one of those films. For choosing a crackling idea, for executing it with panache and for taking Indian cinema to the next level, I doff my hat to you, Mr. S.S. Rajamouli.

Ratings:4/5  Makkhi Review by Anupama Chopra Site: Hindustan Times (Star World)
Makkhi is the most outlandish film I've seen in years. It's also the most fun I've had in a theatre recently.First, he creates a creepy villain: Sudeep is wonderful as the baddie unhinged by a fly. Then Rajamouli imbues a fly with enough personality to take on this villain. It's a tightrope act, and there are times when you think the film has gone too far.But Rajamouli keeps you hooked. By the end, I was clapping and rooting for the fly. How many films can get you emotionally invested in an insect? Makkhi is a mad roller coaster ride that's worth taking.

Ratings:3.5/5  Review by Meena Iyer Site:Times of India (TOI)
Though the plot is for the most-part predictable, Makkhi still offers situations that are truly gleeful to the young and the old alike. For once, the hero of this film, the fly, a common irritant in all our lives, enjoys our empathy instead of getting our wrath. His quest for revenge, somehow becomes our own battle for justice.Ironical it is, that the animated makkhi is so full of life, that he doesn't ever make you miss the presence of a beefy Khan, Kapoor or Kumar. The animation is on par with some of the best in the West and Rajamouli's characterisation of the fly is to be seen to be believed. Makkhi dances as well as Hrithik Roshan and rides as good as Ajay Devgn; mouths dialogue like superstar Rajinikanth and even challenges his rivals to a combat.Tip off: If Spiderman, Rajini and Salman are your cinema staple; Makkhi is for you.

Ratings:----  Review by Komal Nahta Site:ETC
On the whole, Makkhi is a very en­gaging and enjoyable fare for all age groups. Although mouth publicity will ensure that its collections pick up as days progress, its terribly and frighteningly slow start will tell on its box-office business in the final tally.

Ratings:4/5  Review by Ankur Pathak Site:Rediff
Makkhi, which was released in the original Telugu version as Eega in July this year, is a meticulously crafted live-action film brimming with conceptual originality.The length of the film plays spoilsport. Makkhi could have been a far more engaging product had it eliminated the last 20 minutes which just stretch out the film. A suitable closure could have been achieved earlier.But overall, this super-fly is a super-stud, a bee-sized package that promises definite entertainment which even the so called larger-than-life superstars fail to achieve or achieve at a highly superficial level.Director S S Rajamouli and Kotagiri Venkateshwar Rao, who handled the editing and camera work, and the entire team deserves thundering applause.

Ratings:3/5  Review by Shomini Sen Site: Zee News
In spite of its absurdities, the film narrates a hilarious tale of a how a reincarnated housefly envisages to seek revenge and protects a human from another human. Film works mostly because of two reasons - its creativity and to make a mundane run of the mill revenge story so appealing. In spite of its absurdities, the film narrates a hilarious tale of a how a reincarnated housefly envisages to seek revenge and protects a human from another human. The film has some brilliant animation which has the ability to think from a housefly’s perspective. Watch it for its uniqueness. The new age hero of Indian cinema will not disappoint you – in fact it will make you think twice before you swat that irritating fly hovering over your nose.Ratings: Three cheers for its creativity!

Ratings:3.5/5  Review by Shubhra Gupta Site: Indian Express
A fly is something that buzzes about, settles on your food and on your person, and arouses annoyance. ‘Makkhi’ gives us a refreshingly different, innovative take on a little creature one tends to swat away and forget : in SS Rajamouli’s hugely entertaining film, a housefly bests the bad guy, and comes out on top.The dubbing is well done, and the film loses nothing in translation. It helps, of course, that the ‘makkhi’ is largely silent, its eloquence and cleverness coming from the superb animation, near the best I’ve seen in an Indian film.

Ratings:3/5  Review by Shabana Ansari Site:DNA
This typical South Indian fare is sprinkled liberally with masala and served hot with dollops of passion, vendetta, reincarnation and the triumph of good over evil. But what sets the movie apart is its protagonist – a humble housefly that thinks big. Despite some absurd situations, Makkhi entertains in a way only South Indian films do – through heavy doses of maar-dhaad, filmi dialogues and comic relief. Kannada superstar Sudeep plays the bad guy well and the animated makkhi is decent too. Worth a watch for the new-age Indian hero who may be tiny but has lofty ideas.

What’s Good: Imagination, inventiveness , inspite of its absurdities at times, Director Rajamouli is able to carve a hilarious tale out of a make believe world where logic is intertwined with fantasy, some great computer graphics and visualisation.What’s Bad: The name itself maybe, the climax seems a bit extended.Loo Breaks: Few and far between in the first half . Close to none in the second, you would want to grab the scheming ‘Makkhi’ as it plots the downfall.Watch or Not: Not just for the kids, even the adults might want to have a look atleast once at this piece. They just might end up rooting for the ‘housefly’ !

Ratings:2/5  Review by Mayank Shekhar Site: Dainik Bhaskar
Makkhi however has not been remade, but only dubbed into Hindi from the Telegu original. You don’t need Salman, Akshay or Ajay Devgn (Bodyguard, Ready, Rowdy Rathore, Singham) to replace the southern super-heroes here. This is because the protagonist is a fly! And that’s a problem. Of all southern remakes, this is the one that could do with being re-shot with larger budgets, re-edited with snappier cuts, rather than merely being re-released. In its original, tacky, raw form, it just goes on and on and on. Beyond a point, you’re not sure if the fly disturbs the villain more, or the picture itself irritates you just as much.

    1. see south indian movies are far better than ur bollywood. that is the reason all ur bollywood heroes and directors are in que to make remake of south movies. especially ur salman khan. movies like magadheera had crossed 80 crores in only one state that is the greatness of south movies. though bollywood is famous all over india only few movies reach 100 crore club.

      Delete
    2. What remakes are u talking abt man ?? U mean ROWDY RATHODE which was a pathetic movie, or READY- which was awful or BODYGUARD - which was one of the worst of the year, or SINGHAM - brainless slow-mo actions & dialogues, or WANTED - age old story.,???

      I agree that MAGADHEERA was a gud movie n i watched it..even ARYA 2 was gud. But most of the south films are just pathetic. Same age-old cop-gangster stories, unnecessary slow-mo fight scenes, unwanted songs & their choreography, mostly village stories, overacting, &&&&&&&&& ...

      I appreciate gud cinema. First make movies like BARFI, KAHAANI, DELHI BELLY, ZNMD, GUZARISH, GOW, SHANGHAI, 3 IDIOTS etc and then compare with bollywood.

      Delete
    3. Delhi Belly, Shangai n ZNMD are good films for you??? DB is a vulgur movie, ZNMD is a pointless n plotless movie...ZNMD is a dead slow movie which can defeat even snail in who's the slowest race....pls do watch Gamyam, Vedam, onamalu, Kannathil muttamithal, kaanjeevaram, etc and ask your bollywood to make such movies...

    8. i think u dont know anything abt south cinema. bollywood has completely lost its past glory. we have to learn from barfi. what a joke?. it is completely copied from hollywood movie. no uniqueness. we have 1000's of movies like this. bollywood either copies from south movies or hollywood. now there is no single hit in bollywood. south cinema is rocking.

    9. At Sahu.
      Answer for ur question.
      One Hindi movie, whose special effect is better than Makkhi's.... It's Ra.One.. Ha ha :-D. That's all they can claim. :-D

  13. Interesting that here no one is complaining about Taran Adarsh reviews...he gave 4 stars and yet no one is complaining...that means most of the readers & commenters of this post (only this post ha) are from south..kya re ???

    Btw taran gives 4 stars to almost every movie...better wait for Rajeev masand review.

    3. see makkhi is one of the brilliant movie from india. if it had been selected for oscar it would definetly make it. but ur stupid barfi noinated(hit only bcoz of southern actress ileana). which is completely copy of hollywood movies . bollywood either copies from south or hollywood. there is no unique identity. still bollywood is famous bcoz many ppl know hindi. if ppl know telugu or tamil there would be no place for bollywood.

  14. The persons above spaking against south indian movies doesn't know anything about south indian cinemas. Tum log sirf yahan ki masala entertainers remake kartha hai aur tum ko sirf un films ki bare main janta hai. Most of the good movies , national award winning movie in india are made in south escpecciallly in malayalam.andnone of the hindi superstars can't match with the acting abilitiess of south indian actors like mohanlal, kamal hassan, mammooty, vikram, prakash raj etc...etc...etc. So you pls see the south indian movies like iruvar, thanmathra, pranayam, paruthiveeran, kanchivaram, nayagan,vettaiyadu vilayadu, pitamahan, vaaranam aayiram, subramanyapuram etc....etc....etc...............
