Arjun(Manchu Vishnu) and Anu(Kajal Aggarwal) devise a large scale call support scam, duping American taxpayers and ripping off around $300 million dollars which roughly converts to Rs 2600 crores. They orchestrate the entire scam from an office in Hyderabad and Sid(Naveen Chandra) and Vijay(Navdeep) help them in the process. How do they plan and execute such a magnanimous scam from a small establishment in India? What is their motive behind this? What are the consequences of this astonishingly malicious fraud?
Manchu Vishnu and Kajal Agarwal play siblings in the film, a rather unconventional pairing of two mainstream actors. However, both of them deliver good performances. Kajal suits the role and she emotes well. Vishnu looks composed and he comes up with a fine performance.
The first and foremost necessity for a thriller based on real incidents is an authentic and engaging screenplay. But sadly in the case of Mosagallu, the screenplay and narrative are of substandard quality. The scale and the premise of the scam are not registered properly which ultimately takes a toll on the entire film. Many penultimate sequences including the establishment of the scam episode and its consequences are narrated in the most unconvincing way possible.
Mosagallu is a poorly written thriller which simply does not have what it takes to hold the attention of the viewers all the way through. The first half has a few bright moments here and there and they are overshadowed by the flawed and illogical narrative.
