According to Director, the music of Malli Raava is the soul of the film and Sravan has given his best.

Review:The movie is high on emotional quotient and dragging in parts. But the director manages to engage and entertain you throughout the film. However, the second half is very good, say the viewers. Sumanth and Aakanksha Singh have delivered good performances and the sparkling chemistry between the two is the main highlight of Malli Raava. Annapurna, Kadambari Kiran and others have also done justice to their roles and they are the assets of the film, say the audiences.

Sumanth and Akanksha look fine in their roles and render complete justice. The character artist who played Sumanth’s friend got a significant role as sidekick. Akanksha’s mother performed well, same with the artist who played as IT company employee.


  • Lead Character Performances.
  • Music By Shravan. Especially BGM


  • Slow Narration.
  • No Commercial Elements.

Malli Rava Rating: 3/5

Verdict : Overall Malli Raava is an adolescent love story. Sumanth & Akakansha Singh performance is the main highlight of the movie. Although the story is good, time sliced screenplay and Telefilm production quality are the negatives. Till the Interval, the director is unable to establish neither the feel nor the conflict point properly. Worth Watch Film in Theaters This Friday.

AVAD‏ @avadsays
#MalliRaava is fresh, mature and subtle romantic drama which is realistic @iSumanth delivers career best performance #AkankshaSingh makes a striking debut. Music is good. Loved the ending.. Director Gowtam Tinnanuri is a find.

Deepak‏ @KodelaDeepak
#MalliRaava too slow and artificial Comedy. Despite good music & romance, it is a below average – average affair on the whole. Could have been so so much better with a well knit screenplay. The back forth back Narration. 1999 2012 & 2017. This is too much to take and connect with and totally spoils the flow of the film. On paper it might have looked promising. But execution falters. #MalliRaava

Jagdhish Sukasi‏ @sukasi
