Sumanth-Ashwin-in-chakkiligintha movie review
What is the film about?
Adi (Sumanth Ashwin) and Avanthika love each other. How they overcome their ego’s and fall in love with each other is what the film is all about.

Performance by Sumanth Ashwin?
Sumanth Ashwin is another actor who has just not improved much from his debut film to the latest one. There are scenes which could have benefited with better acting but more than that the film would have benefited more with a lead who has some charisma to make us forget the ordeal for whatever period it lasts.

vema-reddy-in-chakkiligintha movie review
Direction By Vema Reddy?
Well first thing first Vema Reddy has great eye for visuals, they are fantastic. In the rest of the departments he hasn’t shown similar level of skill unfortunately. The narrative never moves smoothly, it feels as beautiful scenes are shot patched together without any coherence in them that is essential to story telling.

rehana-in-chakkiligintha-movie review
Rehana and others performance?
Apart from hero, the only other major character in the film is that of heroine. Rehana looks decent on screen but performance is okay-dokay at best. In fact she is a perfect match to the hero in a way as they both lack the charisma to lift the material they are given. Tagubotu Ramesh is given different role for a change but it fails to make an impact as its poorly written. Others like Pragathi, Madhu etc make only fleeting appearance and do nothing of remembrance.

micky-j-meyer-in-chakkiligintha movie review
Micky J Mayer and other departments?
Music by Mickey J Mayer is good but the background score is even better. It gives the film a soul which is sadly never fully realized. Cinematography is fabulous. Editing is smooth. Dialogue could have been better.

highlights-in-chakkiligintha movie review
Few scenes in second half.

Unnecessary complicated story.
Muddled screenplay.
First half.

box-office-talk-of-chakkiligintha movie review
Alternative take:
The film had good scope for a fresh non clichéd romance but its marred by a screenplay that is as poor as they come. Better screenplay is all that is required to make this movie worthwhile.

Did I enjoy it?
Yes, but very few parts.

Will you recommend it?
No. But if one wants to watch beautiful visuals on screen and nothing else matters then do give it a chance.
