Twins Arjun and Anu (Charle), who are great at their jobs and the ultimate breadwinners of their family, get a single request from their father (Omkar) in the form of funding for their big dream, which is to set up a factory producing wooden furniture. 

However, a couple of disinterested investors enter the scene and it seems that they are not interested in supporting Arjun and Anu's idea.

How was the performance of the actors?

Arjun Rampal's performance seemed forced and forced to the extent that it almost became a caricature of itself. He put up the usual facade of a successful gangster who is the perfect 'man of the house' to his parents.

It was such a disappointing effort, especially when he had such an apt competition for this role. Suniel Shetty's performance seemed forced and forced to the extent that it almost became a caricature of itself. He put up the usual facade of a successful gangster who is the perfect 'man of the house' to his parents. 

It was such a disappointing effort, especially when he had such an apt competition for this role. Kajal Agarwal's performance was unexciting. Kajal looks beautiful, but she fails to do justice to the character of a businesswoman from the city.

What are the positives and negatives of the film?

Perspectives Keeping itself away from controversies and releases late in the year has helped the film. Vishnu's choice of roles are so predictable that you don't feel like laughing. This time, his 'rotten' character seems to be getting more subtle. 

Kavya Krishnan has done a decent job, showing the paranoia of the middle class women in her character. Performances by Neha Sharma and Neeraj Madhav are utterly believable as the sisters Arjun and Anu. Both have truly grown into their roles and have handled their dialogues well. 

Yami Gautam's double role does not suit her at all. However, that seems to have not affected her performance much. Brahmanandam plays the character of Vijay, with finesse and has given a respectable performance.

Conclusion

Mosagallu (Anu and Arjun) is a movie which weaves and weaves with your brains pulling it down by the collar, till finally being left with a hint of ambiguity. A movie which kept your attention with its engaging, unique and interesting characters but didn't let you breathe a sigh of relief by its lack of punch, without getting it even slightly. 

If you are a movie buff with a very strong but very selective sense of morality then you won't like it and if you are an average movie fan, in this day and age when every action star is his own international brand, who wants just anything that is mindless entertainment to fill a cinema, this movie is not for you. A slow burn is what makes you stay awake in the theatre and this movie doesn't leave you at any point of time.
