Chakkiligintha Review - Star Performance
Sumanth Ashwin’s performance and dialogue delivery has improved considerably.Yet some liveliness is missing.He seems to have necessary talent and looks for teenage entertainers. Rehana looks pretty in her looks and performance is fine. The chemistry between the lead pair was missing the magical feel. Thagubothu Ramesh and Sapthagiri limited to small roles and are wasted. Comedians Viva Harsha, Madhu and Srinu failed to tickle the funny bones of the audience. Appaji and Surekha Vani are decent as Rehana’s parents.
A love story at least has to evoke
emotions.Script is the culprit here. Except for the main lead story other
characters were not perfectly developed to blend into the script. Some kind of
balance between the story gaps would have really helped the movie.
The second half of the film is too lengthy and should have edited severely to leave some impact on the audience. Background Score of the film is okay. Cinematography (by Sai Sriram) is one of those rare aces in the movie along with its eye catching costume designing. The way he makes use of the localities and lighting deserves a special mention.
Karthik Srinivas editing could have applied his scissors more sharply. Dialogues in the film are routine. Choreography suits the tune of the film. Production values of Ilavala Films and Mahi’s entertainment pvt. Ltd are good.
Chakkiligintha Review - Analysis
On the whole, Chakkiligintha starts off good, giving one a Broadway feel then comes the downer. A powerful sleeping draught, that isn’t recommended for inveterate sleeplessness.
Vema Reddy Could have been spent little more time to make the film watchable.
