Chalo Movie Review:
Chalo promised to be a witty host to his promos. The movie fulfilled these expectations as the newcomer, Venky Kudumula, made a jolly journey with well performed comic scenes. Naga Shourya’s faith in the script paid off, as Chalo is a satisfactory guard.
Hari (Naga Shourya) is a typical character who enjoys the fight. His parents send him to a place called Tirupppuram, which is on the border of Andhra-Tamilnadu. The Tamils and Telugus of this village want to kill each other because of regional conflicts. Hari’s parents send him to this village so that Hari gets angry at the fighting and finds no joy in them. But Hari falls in love with Karthika (Rashmika), the daughter of a Tamil. Now Hari should convince his father and solve the problem among the villagers.
Naga Shourya does not try to be a hero. He just keeps it and gives it a natural performance. He is very intelligent and beautiful in the movie. Rashmika is a talented actress. She imitates it well and has done a great job as a women’s leader. Satya is very funny as Shourya’s partner. Vennela Kishore dominates the show in a cameo. Posani, Raghubabu, and Naresh made themselves felt. Praveen, Viva Harsha, and Sudarshan supported their performances well.
Director Venky Kudumula chose a very simple scenario for his first film. The strength of the film lies in its comedy and appealing design. The director has a good sense of humor and uses it with good results, offering complete comedy at regular intervals. However, there are some scenes that reveal his inexperience.
Mahati’s music is above average. It marks with the background music and the song of Chusi Chudangane. The cinematography is good. The dialogues are well written. The issue is good. The production values are impressive. The movie does not look like a low budget movie in any environment.
Chalo is a fun movie with high-quality humor and extravagant characters. It takes a while to get into the routine and it turns out that it is a pleasure when the hero enters Thiruppuram. Establishing a love story in the midst of disputes between two peoples is an old formula. Director Venky Kudumula took a good turn to make it a beautiful concept.
The director takes full advantage of the regional sentiment between Telugus and Tamils and develops the intelligent humor around the concept. The scenario is inconsistent, as the romantic scenes between Shourya and Raschmika do not arrive. However, from time to time, the director presents a funny scene to entertain the audience.
The accumulation for the interval scene is well done and works well. In general, the first part of the movie is very nice, with a good mood and good songs. The script loses control in the second half and the director goes to the comedy to save. Vennela Kishore appears at the right time and steals the show every time her character enters the scene.
The climax cannot handle all parts of the audience. The director’s attempt to humorously end it was counterproductive to a degree. He seemed so stupid that witty and certainly lost some points for it. Some songs could have been avoided as well. A better second half would have made Chalo an element of change for Naga Shourya.
Second half slips
Leaving Makulos aside, Chalo is a time-consuming artist with a lot of comedy and a decent main couple. Positive word of mouth can reinforce your prospects at the box office. Your final score depends on how Touch Chesi Chudu behaves.
Chalo Rating: 3/5
