Matti Katha, directed by Pavan Kadiyala and produced by Appi Reddy under Mic Movies, opened to glowing reviews from the media upon its limited theatrical release a few weeks ago. Now, the Ajey Ved, Maya, Kanakavva and Sudhakar Reddy starrer is set to premiere on noted streaming platform aha this Friday. Ahead of its digital premiere, we tell you five reasons why you can’t miss it.


Refreshing performances by newcomers

Apart from a couple of known faces like Sudhakar Reddy, Dayanand Reddy, the film is packed with newcomers. The fluid script gives the young performers ample scope to prove their mettle and they leave a lasting impression on audiences.

Addressing social realities without being preachy

From the dark realities associated with land encroachment to rural-urban migration to corruption within the system and issues faced by families dependent on agriculture, Matti Katha discusses countryside realities from an insider’s perspective without being preachy.

The slice-of-life humour

Apart from the tense half-an-hour leading to the climax, Matti Katha is quite light-hearted in its treatment. Most of the humour is elicited from the protagonists’ college episodes, their love lives, verbal banters with parents. The comedy is mostly situational and unforced.

How it uses music to drive the story

Smaran Sai, who also composed the music for Kotha Poradu, utilises music so seamlessly to drive the story forward, with flavourful songs rich in melody with a folksy touch. Kanakavva’s brief number on the memories related to her husband is one of the major highs of Matti Katha.

An entertaining, compact narrative

Despite telling a multi-layered story with several conflicts, Matti Katha never tries to overstay its welcome and is razor sharp in its narration. The runtime, just over 90 minutes, is quite apt. There’s one thing common among all well-made films - they leave you with a lot of questions and offer space for introspection.
