VR Critique Meter: 1.5/5

Miss India is another direct OTT release for Keerthy Suresh, this time in Netflix banner. Miss India is all about a young girl who grows up to be an entrepreneur directed by a debut director Narendranath. Jagapati Babu, Rajendra Prasad, Nadia played pivotal roles in the movie. The movie was released in Tamil and Telugu language with a runtime of 136mins.


Manasa Samyukta (Keerthy Suresh) is a young girl who grows up ambitious to become an entrepreneur. Manasa is emotionally much attached to her grandfather Viswanath (Rajendra Prasad) who has a unique skill of treating his patients with his exclusive handmade blend of tea and medicinal plants. Manasa’s life takes a worst turn after her grandfather’s demise, her father’s memory loss and her eloped sister with her loved one. The responsibility of taking care of the family went on her and her brother’s head. Her brother got a job in the US which made the entire family forced to move there.


Manasa finds it hard at first but gained courage to become an entrepreneur sets up her own business called Miss India with a unique tea recipe which she learned from her grandfather in the coffee beverage spreader country. During her entrepreneur journey, Manasa meets Kailash (Jagapati Babu); a successful businessman having a chain of coffee shops. How Manasa becomes a successful entrepreneur and what steps she takes to beat Kailash forms the remaining part of Miss India.


The plot is promising; on the other hand, the screenplay was boring and bizarre. I choose the movie to watch for Keerthy Suresh. The debut director tried to use her screen appearance to get the audience but due to soggy writing, the flick went into a quagmire and felt like a serial watching experience. National award winner Keerthy Suresh was glowing in every scene in the character of Manasa who talks about women empowerment. Apart from her, Jagapati Babu has given his performance holds some said so grip to the movie. The dialogs are soft and do not have a hard impact on the plot. Music by S.Thaman, his handmade touch in the songs are decent, liked the solo melody nonetheless rests are not up to the level.  Background scores sensed like watching a television serial.


Overall, Miss India, the plot is good but imploded due to the creepy screenplay. A downfall for the national award winner too. My rating would be 1.5 out of 5 that is only for the acting of Keerthy Suresh, spaced out from her performance, didn’t found encouraging or hard-hitting moments in the movie.
