Rishi works as a police officer in the Intelligence Bureau in New Delhi. He is hot-blooded when dealing with anti-social elements and that earns him the name, Mirapakay.
He is also a romantic at heart when he's not on duty. His immediate Boss (Nagababu) sends him off to Hyderabad on a mission to join a college as a lecturer. In Hyderabad, he falls in love with a traditional girl Vinamra (Richa) who happens to be a student in the college where he teaches Hindi.
A couple of songs and some funny scenes later, it is revealed that he should befriend Vaishali (Deeksha Seth), daughter of mafia don Kittu Bhai (Prakash Raj) and through her they plan to nab the don. How Rishi finishes off the mission constitutes the second half of the movie.
The basic plot is taken from Main Hoon Na and some scenes and episodes resemble Ravi Teja's Don Seenu. Except for a few laughs here and there, the movie follows the pattern set by several other directors when they made movies with Ravi Teja in the lead role.
Mirapakay is very predictable. Director Harish Shankar debuted with the colossal failure Shock and if we were to compare the two, his maiden film looks better and novel.
As the plot is flimsy, the director has tried hard to keep the audiences` interest intact by inserting songs every 15 minutes and some comedy episodes by Ravi Teja and Sunil. Post interval the movie drags on.
Ravi Teja has done exactly what he has been doing in all his previous films. The less said about the Richa the better. Deeksha Seth is tall and beautiful. Sunil in his brief role provides good comedy. Ali as Al Pachino is funny. Kota Srinivas Rao, Chandramohan, Ajay and Supreeth are okay. Prakash Raj 's character as a don and his set up (in Bangkok) is almost similar to the ones he has done before in Chirutha/Kantri/Pokiri.
Couple of songs by Taman sounds catchy but music has not helped the movie. Director Harish Shankar as a writer and director has just rehashed all of Ravi Teja's earlier movies.
If you are not tired of seeing Ravi Teja doing the same role again and again and his histrionics, then Mirapakay is for you. For others, it looks tepid and boring.
Time pass comedy entertainer
Average comedy entertainer
Decent rural family entertainer
Soubin Shahir and Mamta Mohandas shine in this conventional film
