Review : Chakkiligintha
Young hero Sumanth Ashwin, is slowly settling down as a bankable hero in Tollywood. His latest offering is Chakkiliginta which has hit the screens today. Let’s now see how it is.
Adi(Sumanth Ashwin) is a young guy who does not believe in going after girls. He also encourages his friends not to woo them and this attitude of his is disliked by the entire girls in his college.
One fine day, Avi(Rehana) joins the college and finds out that all the boys are completely ignoring all the girls. She then decides to change this scenario and lays a trap for Adi. Will Adi fall into the trap ? Will Avi change Adi’s thinking ? That forms the rest of the story.
Major plus for this film are the superb production values. The entire film looks quite rich and the college atmosphere has been showcased in a superb light. Sumanth Ashwin is improving with every film of his. He looks handsome and the way he emotes during the entire film is also good. He had a lot of scope to perform in this character and he does not disappoint at all.
Tagubohu Ramesh and Viva Harsh are pretty good in their roles. The first half an hour of the film is quite entertaining and peppy. Songs of the film are also decent.
After an promising first 30 minutes, this film falls flat on its face. The pace becomes dead slow and there is a lot of confusion in the way characters have been dealt with. Heroine Rehana is yet another drawback for the film. When the makers had such an important role for the heroine, they should have gone with someone well known. Even though this young actress tries hard, she looked quite unconvincing.
The film takes for ever to finish and goes on and on. The relationship between the lead pair lacks focus and has no clarity at all. The way heroines behaves with the hero is quite confusing during the second half. Climax of the film looks foolish and does not justify the film at all.
As said above, production values of the film are quite good. Camerawork is stunning and showcases the college atmosphere in a new light. Mickey J Meyer’s music is also decent. Dialogues are decent and so are the lyrics. The entire screenplay goes for a toss as too many confusing scenes take center stage. Vema Reddy’s direction is below par. The concept that he has chosen is novel but his execution is bad. He leaves away too many points unclear and makes it quite confusing for the audience. The way he has justified the climax is also pretty bad.
On the whole, Chakkiliginta is one film which goes completely haywire after a point. Rich production values and Sumanth Ashwin’s performance are the only reprise in this film which leaves the audience in utter confusion. Ignore this film this weekend.
