Most Eligible Bachelor Review - Analysis
Most Eligible Bachelor is promoted as an entertaining love drama. As far as the entertainment aspect goes, the film does manage to tick the right boxes. The opening half is breezy and it banks on the rib-tickling comedy sequences. But as for the love track, the film stutters.
In the opening exchanges, the sequences pertaining to Akhil falling after several women in search of the right soul partner are presented in a comical manner and they serve the purpose. Akhil fits the role and he delivers a fine performance. Pooja Hegde looks beautiful on the screen. Their chemistry is arguably decent.
Sensible love drama is a strong suit of Bommarillu Baskar and he treads familiar territory with Most Eligible Bachelor. However, the love track isn’t of the desired quality. There are certain ‘Orange’ (Ram Charan starrer directed by Baskar) shades in Most Eligible Bachelor. Two people with polar mindsets meeting each other and developing feelings, but only to find out they are not as compatible - This is essentially the plotline of Most Eligible Bachelor.
Most Eligible Bachelor is a tale of two halves. While the opening one keeps the viewers engaged with an effective comedy track, the latter half struggles to hold the momentum, owing to sub-par writing,
The background score is of top quality and so are the songs. The cinematography is neat and the productions values are quite good. The latter half needed more of a trim and the editor could have done the needful.
Most Eligible Bachelor Review - Verdict
Most Eligible Bachelor is a mixed bag. The comedy works in parts, but the emotional connection isn’t strong enough. The film makes for a one-time watch.
