MAD is a 2023 Indian Telugu-language coming-of-age comedy film written and directed by Kalyan Shankar.

It stars Narne Nithin, Sangeeth Shobhan, Ram Nitin, and Vishnu Oi as four college friends who navigate their way through love, friendship, and academic challenges.

The film has received mixed reviews from critics, with praise for its performances, humor, and youthful energy, but criticism for its thin storyline and lack of originality.

Cinejosh gave the film a rating of 2.75 out of 5 stars, calling it a “riotous and vibrant youthful entertainer” with witty dialogues and side-splitting moments.”

123Telugu also gave the film a positive review, stating that it has “a good number of fun sequences that are aimed at youth.”

However, The Times of India gave the film a rating of 2 out of 5 stars, calling it a “missed opportunity.” The reviewer criticized the film’s “paper-thin plot,” “poorly developed characters,” and “lack of logic.”

Overall, MAD is a mixed bag. It is a fun and entertaining film with good performances and humor, but it is also hampered by a thin storyline and lack of originality. Whether or not you enjoy the film will likely depend on your personal preferences, if you are a college student or out of college you probably will enjoy it.

If you are looking for a light-hearted comedy with youthful energy, then MAD may be worth checking out. However, if you are looking for a film with a strong storyline and well-developed characters, then you may want to look elsewhere.
