A promising talent, Syed Sohel made inroads from Telugu “Bigg Boss” to the silver screen. He bets big on his debut movie Mr Pregnant.
The film harps on a quirky idea of male pregnancy. Let’s see if it has any juice in it:
Gautam (Syed Sohel) is a young talented tattoo artist in his college for whom girls die for. Despite excelling in his creative pursuit of tattooing, Gautam is frequently haunted by his past because of his obscure and lonely childhood.
However, Gautam finds great solace when he meets his companion in college, Mahi (Roopa Koduvayur).
He accepts her love. But for marriage, he has a condition — transfer of pregnancy.
Why is Gautam adamant about taking the labour pains on him? What’s the flashback that made him become Mr Pregnant is the story.
