Naga Shaurya who got a good name with the films like Kalyana Vaibhogame, Oohalu Gusagusalade, Kalyana Vaibigame, Oka Manasu and Jyo Achyuthananda is back again with an interesting movie titled Chalo. The actor has been facing flops in the recent times, but finally, he has come up with an interesting film which was made in his home banner Ira Creations by his parents. Venky Kudumula is the director making his debut with the film. Rashmika Mandanna is making her female lead debut with the film. The film is in the theatres from today. Check out our take on the movie here.
Hari (Naga Shaurya)’s fascination is fights and disputes. He is always involved in one or the other fight just for the sake of it. In an interesting scenario, Hari is sent to a village called Tiruppuram where Telugu people, headed by Keshava (Achyuth Kumar) and Tamil people, led by Veera Muththu (Mime Gopi) fight with each other. Hari initially shows interest in the fights, but later he falls for Muththu’s daughter Karthika (Rashmika Mandanna). Hari, then realizes that his marriage with Karthika will land in an obstacle and decides to know about the fight that happened between the two groups. What happens then? Forms the story of the movie.
Naga Shaurya played the role, Hari, very well. The attitude that comes with it impressed one and all. The characterization of his character was opened by the director in the first scene itself. Rashmika Mandanna also scored well with her performance in the movie. Her debut is undoubtedly a successful one. The comic actors like Satya, Vennela Kishore, Sudarshan and Viva Harsha entertained the viewers. The other actors like Achyuth Kumar, Motta Rajendran, Mime Gopi are good too.
The music and camera work are the highlights of the movie. The audio album scored by Mahathi Swara Sagar is impressive. The background score is also good. The dialogues are excellent, and the punches will be received well by the audiences. Sai Sriram’s camera work is eye-candy and pleasant. The editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao and Thammi Raju is impressive. The production values are grand in the film.
Few Dragged Scenes
The story’s span is very less, but the core point of the movie is impressive. The way the director executed the story is remarkable. The characterizations given to every character is impressive. A lot of fun was generated in the campus scenes. The entertainment part is perfect for the film. The love track is also right. The chemistry between Shaurya and Rashmika worked bug time. There is not much that happens in the first half of the movie, but the songs and the comedy engage the audiences with the film’s flow. The second offers a bit of disappointment the director cleverly impressed with the climax. The way the main story was dealt is excellent, and the debut director is appreciable. On the whole, the film has got the right quantity of entertainment which is enough for performing well in the theatres.
