Itlu Maredumilli Prajaneekaniki is written and directed by AR Mohan. It is a social drama that focuses on the current situation of indigenous groups. The Hindi film Newton is partly responsible for the central theme of Italo Maridomali Prajnikanki, an election in a remote area. Apart from that, however, there is nothing, and this is where the story completely changes course.
As an election officer, a teacher travels to the village of Maridomali and tries to recreate it in his image. Here teachers and problems are the main topics. We see the problems coming up one by one. These are the essential needs – schools, hospitals and transport – that the government must provide. The director tries to weave the issues into the narrative, but sadly it doesn’t work that way.
The main reason for this is that there is too much emphasis on “problems” and how they are presented one after the other. It creates a formulaic impression. A love story involving a heroine or a sibling situation has tried to organicize these things, but they are again fraught with major issues. The film had only 40% capture and it might end up as a flop at the box office.
