If you had the relevant context, I could finish my review of Thipparaa Meesam in one line. And that context is as follows.
My colleague T J Reddy is one of the harshest task-masters when it comes to rating films. There are numerous occasions where I was quite happy with a film and got perplexed by his lukewarm ratings. This man, who is difficult to please, gave Mental Madhilo a 7 on 10, and called it "a dark horse candidate for being called one of the best Telugu movies of the year". It's sneakily good, he said. Mental Madhilo starred this guy called Sree Vishnu.
