Mister is proof that Sreenu Vaitla’s days of glory are long behind him. It’s proof that the filmmaker has lost touch with the trends of the day, lost his grip on the recipe for successful films.

A complete disregard for the story and characters is merely scraping the edge of all the problems of the film. How all the cast and crew deemed this film worthy of a release is something we’ll never know.


The film is about Chai (Varun Tej), a benevolent man who leaves no stone unturned in helping others. Living in Spain with his family, Chai falls in love with Meera (Hebah) on first sight, only to be told by her she is in love with somebody else.

The man returns to India, where he meets Chandramukhi (Lavanya). The story then becomes about these three characters coming to terms with their feelings.


It was thought that the film would show us a different Varun Tej, but it never gives him enough scope for performance. The characterisation of Hebah is superficial too.

There are many other characters playing blink-and-miss roles. There are bizarre scenes that don’t even make sense. At a run time of more than two-and-a-half hours, Mister is not just longer than it should be, but exists when it should not.
