Meeku Mathrame Cheptha teaser: Vijay Deverakonda's maiden production sees Tharun Bhascker as a lying bloke
Meeku Mathrame Cheptha is a Telugu rom-com about a man who is trying to hide the fact that is addicted to cigarettes, alcohol, and marijuana from his girlfriend.
The teaser follows Tharun Bhascker Dhassyam's character, who is quizzed by Anasuya Bharadwaj's character about his habits. Anasuya suspiciously asks Tharun if he has any addictions, for cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana, or if he is a womaniser. While Tharun vehemently denies everything, the sequences are interspersed with scenes showing him smoking, drinking, and making merry with his buddies. When Anasuya further asks him if he is lying, he again denies, but this time, with less conviction. We are told that there is a phone recording that threatens to uncover Tharun's lie to Anasuya. Tharun, with his friends, then embarks on a mission to protect his secrets at any cost.
Here's the teaser:
