Story: Manoj (Ram Nitin), Ashok (Narne Nitin), and Damodar (Sangeet Shobhan) join an engineering college. They become friends in the same college, and their group gets name called ‘MAD’. Ashok is a very introverted person, who falls in love with Anantika Sanil Kumar. Manoj always does flirting with girls, and he loves Shruti (Sri Gauri Priya Reddy) sincerely. Some random girl writes a letter to Damodar after he declares that girls don’t like him. She talks with him every day on the phone. Who is she? What is the role of Radha (Gopika Udayan) in the story? How the main characters converge and intersect through the course of the story is what the film is about.

Performances: Narne Nithin did good. That’s why he deserves applause for his performance. Ram Nithiin suits perfectly with his boy-next-door looks. Sangeet Sobhan takes us with him and makes us laugh with excellent acting and dialogue delivery. Gowri Priya Reddy looks stylish and pretty on the screen compared to the other three actresses.


  • Situational Comedy
  • Sangeeth Shobhan’s incredible performance
  • Production values


  • Few Dull Moments
  • Thin Storyline


MAD is the newest new-age comedy in the town. There are multiple elements that lend charisma and grace to the film. Despite being a campus comedy about duds and dummies, it has its heart in the right place.

The emotions are there as an undercurrent. In the second half, Damodhar goes through a unique experience. Can he come out of it, we question. When he does so immediately, we know that the tone of the film is purely meant for entertainment.

The film is not tiring even though the entire story is set on a campus. Usually, melodrama is reserved for the climax in films like this. But director Kalyan Shankar doesn’t do that. He keeps the comedy meter rising even in the second half and till the climax.

Verdict: It is a laugh riot with thorough entertainment in store.
