Raja (Nara Rohit) who wish to become a director fall in love with Chaitra (Isha Talwar). One day he narrates his story in a cafe and later he receives a letter from film director appreciating him. The director asks him to send a climax on eliminating a brutal, wicked villain. However this lands him in trouble as he was blackmailed to kill Vijay Manik (Tarakaratna), powerful villain with political background in real life. Unravel the mystery behind it by watching Raja Cheyyi Veste in theatres.
Nara Rohit played his role to perfection. He is good as lover and son. However he should concentrate on keeping tab on his weight and physique. He tried his best to attract viewers with some dancing moves. Isha Talwar is confined to glamour treat in songs. She didn’t get chance to show her acting talent. Tarakratna surprises all with his looks, towereing physique and performance. He is the attraction in the film. He is mean and showed cruelty in eyes without uttering dialogues. Avasarala Srinivas sizzled in a cameo while Sivaji Raja, Duvvasi Mohan and others performed accordingly.
Music of Sai Karthik is ok and background score gave power to the film. Cinematography is good and it would have been better had editing reduced the slow pace and drags in the film. Pradeep Chilukuru on debut showed his talent but could have finetuned the film showing the clash between Rohit and Tarak in detail to make it more interesting. Production values are fine.
One of the major plus points of the film is the casting. Nara Rohit carries his role with ease and is comfortable with a range of emotions. Isha Talwar is beautiful and is an apt fit for her role. She is also good with her expressions and manages to take everyone by surprise.
Tarakaratna steals the show with his menacing looks and superb acting. If Tarakaratna chooses this path, he has a long career ahead of him. Yet another major plus are the twists as they manage to keep you entertained at regular intervals. Also, the mind games shown in the second half have been executed well.
Interval block has been showcased well and creates an interesting cliff-hanger for the second half. The main story lies in the second half and it manages to entertain the viewers to an extent.
Even though the film starts off on an interesting note, the overall story ends up being a disappointment once the twists are revealed. The movie takes its own sweet time to kick start the actual story and these parts end up boring the viewer.
Also, the love track between the lead pair is prolonged and could have been easily left out. First half is a big down point as it carries no story nor entertainment. Even though the director tries to include forced humor and a love track, they do not work at all. The whole reason behind the revenge drama is very weak and ends up taking away the value from the overall story.
Songs come in as major speed-breakers, especially during the second half and could have easily been edited out. Heroine’s childhood flashback is also very weak and unappealing. A shorter run-time and a racy screenplay could have improved the movie by leaps and bounds.
Debutante Pradeep Chilukuru came with a revenge thriller. First half sails smoothly after the introduction of villain in a powerful manner. It takes a serious note with interesting interval bang after action scene. Second half is filled with hero and villain playing mind games to gain upperhand. This formula is seen in many films but Pradeep Chilukuru attracted with his screenplay and direction.
Though some drags are there he did well that those things didn’t affect the film. Second half is serious to the core with some sentiment elements. Dialogues make good impact. Climax looked a bit weak but Overall a good debut for Pradeep Chilukuru and also for Nara Rohit who showed his power once again as villain.
Final Talk :
Raja Cheyyi Veste is a interesting thriller
