Production and release


Super Machi is the second film of Kalyaan Dhev, ex-son-in-law of Chiranjeevi.[2] It is directed by debutant Puli Vasu with music composed by S. Thaman. Initially, Rhea Chakraborty was signed as the female lead.[3] However, she was later replaced by Kannada actress Rachita Ram who makes her Telugu debut.[4] The film began its production in early 2019 but was put on hold due to major changes in the script.[5] Production resumed in November 2019,[6] but was halted again in March 2020 due to COVID-19 lockdown in India. The final schedule of the film began in June 2021 at Ramanaidu Studios, Hyderabad.[7]

The film was planned to simultaneously release in Kannada with the title This Property Belongs to Meenakshi, however, the Kannada version was subsequently dropped.[6] After several delays,[8] the film was released theatrically on 14 January 2022, coinciding with the festival of Sankranti.[9]



The soundtrack album consists of five songs composed by S. Thaman, and released by Aditya Music.[10]

The Times of India rated the film 2.75/5 and wrote, "Super Machi is an emotional suspense drama with a pure love story, which will appeal to the youth. Kalyaan Dhev's sincere performance and good drama in the first half are basic assets."[11] A reviewer from Sakshi appreciated the director for bringing novelty in a routine storyline but opined that the emotional scenes in the latter half were poorly executed.[12] Raju Aithagoni of Asianet News also echoed the same while praising the film's climax.[13]

Praveen Kumar Vadla of News18 Telugu felt that it was part-emotional and part-confusing, rating it 2.5/5.[14] Pinkvilla's Bhavan Sharma, who rated the film 1.5/5, stated that it was entertaining in bits and pieces. "On the whole, this romantic drama fails to engage as it lacks a strong point to make the film interesting," she concluded.[15]
