Every once in a while, there comes a movie which is simply too hard to overcome its side-effects on audiences' mind. But, MMCH poses a greater challenge which leaves them in a complete shock especially after witnessing the courtroom climax scene! No words can do justice when explaining it to any sane mind. It easily qualifies to becoming the 'scene of the century’. One has to just watch it to witness it.

Well, MMCH stands for the combination of first letter from the names of four girls, who play the central characters - Meghana, Maya, Chaya and Harshitha. On a 'lighter note,’ henceforth, it can also be referred to as - murder mystery causing headache. The plot is simple but gets complicated as it moves at a snail’s pace with unnecessary fights, dialogues and draggy scenes.

 

The first half of it is quite watchable when compared to the horrendous second part, with Ragini Dwivedi playing the tough cop's role. It gets tougher when she is handed over the case of a mysterious murder. A decomposed body is found inside the garbage bin placed next to a wedding venue.

Another criminal case in reel, which even the finest in the real world would have failed to solve it. But, the intelligence of the lady cop here is unmatchable. However, one has to bear with her show offs.

To explain it in detail, it is best to ‘probe’ a scene: After a vital clue is found, which is a tailor's signature tag on the dead body's shirt, the lady cop along with her two associates somehow manage to trace the tailor. In case of a normal and straight policing methods, the tailor would have disclosed the information immediately, but not this cop. She fights the poor chap and his gang in full public view before he spills the bean.

 

As the needle of suspicion points towards four girls, the mystery is unraveled. They had accidentally murdered a man and covered it up. What made them to do so, is the second half of the tale. There is hardly anything worth mentioning in terms of its making and the performances. The only relief is watching women in action from beginning to end.

Lastly, it seems like a majority of filmmakers need to enroll themselves for some basic legal education before filming the acts when it comes to courtroom scenes in movies. There is also a mentioning of the smiling picture of Mahatma Gandhi on currency notes, which will certainly leave the audience baffled.
