Muddula Koduku builds up expectations with its well-chosen storyline. Well-chosen, not created - because the story itself is an old one, the kind kids will finish for you if you tell them half of it. The story of an outwardly ugly man who realizes that inner beauty is the only kind there is.
Unfortunately, Muddula Koduku slips up with its almost epically simplistic treatment of a complex issue. If it didn’t, it could have run for the Oscars. Once a good story is chosen, the law of averages ensures the script is no great shakes.
