Michael Review & Ratings | Hit or Flop?

Michael Review: There aren’t many actors in the Indian film industry, and no matter how many movies they’ve been in, their career trajectories haven’t changed. Sundeep Kishan, a Telugu actor, is one example. Even though he made numerous tries, he frequently failed in his career, despite the fact that he has a lot of talent as an actor. After the mediocre movie “Gully Rowdy,” which came out in the year 2021, he has now produced “Michael,” which hit theatres today.


Michael Review

With action scenes and a large cast that included Vijay Sethupathi, Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar, and other performers, the Michael movie trailer seemed intriguing. Let’s examine this film in detail to see whether Sundeep Kishan was successful with it or failed to amuse Telugu audiences once more.


Michael joins a gang in the city because he wants to command the group of thugs. He gradually establishes himself as a key player in the gang thanks to his guts and candour. He develops feelings for a woman named “Theera.” The rest of the story is made up of the changes in Michael’s life, Theera’s past, and the true reason he decided to join the gang.

Cast & Crew

Many films that have been released in the last few years have made crime their central theme. By selecting the criminal genre, the producers will have the ability to include more action, which the majority of viewers enjoy. With the release of the teaser, Michael already teased the amount of action we can expect to see, so you can anticipate the movie to have a double dosage of action.

Without any exposition, Michael jumps right into the plot and holds our attention for a few minutes, but after a while, the pace picks up and the movie starts to seem a little dragging with a lot of dialogue that makes us feel more bored. The pace of the film, however, picks up again during the intermission and stays the same after it. The movie closes with an anticipated conclusion and leaves the spectator with conflicted feelings.

Sundeep Kishan has stepped outside of his comfort zone when it comes to his acting, yet the actor comes off as routine in his portrayal, which is reminiscent of his work in earlier films. Divyansha Kaushik mostly uses her glitz to amuse; her performance is of secondary importance. The actors Vijay Sethupathi and Gautam Vasudev Menon are among the film’s standout features. Their performances have brought light to numerous settings. Varalaxmi Sarathkumar does okay in her role, and Ayyappa Sharma gives a strong performance and delivers the lines well. Anasuya’s subpar performance can be easily overlooked, and Varun Sandesh isn’t the right actor for the part. Every other actor played their roles as required by the plot effectively.

Michael’s movie seems good technically. Although Sam CS‘s songs are not very memorable, they were nicely shot. Sam’s original background music adds to the appeal of this film. Although Kiran Koushik’s cinematography was passable, some of the images appear oversaturated. DI might have been improved. Good production qualities and sufficient funding from the producers have resulted in a high-caliber film.

Despite adding a few twists and turns to a straightforward plot that has been seen in many films before, director Ranjit Jeyakodi might have done more to improve the screenplay and narration.

Overall, Michael is an exciting drama that is worth watching for its production values. You should see this movie in a theatre if you enjoy Sundeep Kishan’s work.
