What Is the Film About?
Bhavana (Bhanu Sri) decides to commit suicide when she realises that she is pregnant and doesn’t know how it happened. Meanwhile, Sunder is a psycho who can talk to ghosts and uses them for his wild sexual fantasies. Amidst them is Tempt Ravi who can’t hold his feelings towards women. Whomever he desires, there is a sexual action happening. How are all these tracks connected to each other is the story of the film?
How Is Abhishek Reddy’s Performance?
Abhishek Reddy, aka Tempt Ravi, looks apt for the part. His physical appearance is the reason for the activity to come across as funny. It works for a few scenes, but after that, there is a lot of repetitiveness. The acting is non-existent, and that renders the emotional scenes ineffective. There is nothing much else there to say.
Direction by Sam J Chaithanya?
Sam J Chaitanya has picked a decent subject that brings together the adult comedy and ghost angle along with a twist. However, he has the worst resources at hand, and that is where the entire thing goes haywire. Add a muddled screenplay and confused direction; we know where Yedu Chepala Katha is headed even if the logics are thrown out of the window for commerciality’s sake.
The stories involving ghosts have become so routine and stale over the last decade. Still, they keep getting made with some tweaks. The trend for some time is to mix adult humour. It is working a few times when done right.
Under such a scenario, Yedu Chepala Katha offers some fresh content on both the adult and horror side. It is perverse, but it is also something new. However, Sam J Chaitanya fails to execute his story correctly.
The idea to put more focus on the adult aspect of the story backfires after a point. The director has gone overboard on that aspect, and that has led to severe censor issues. The cuts and shots are abrupt. The continuity and flow of the film are missing from time to time. If one is still cued to the proceedings, it is due to the strength of the story.
The interval mark is set up properly, but what happens immediately post-intermission undoes all the effects. The story too weakens in the second half. Add to that; there is a lot of confusion as to what is happening. The raw dialogues with no finesse or depth further dent the prospects. Some ridiculous comedy in between makes the narrative inconsistent.
After all the troubles, the climax reveal doesn’t excite much. So much is happening there, and with no prior connection, lost in editing confusion, one gets totally restless and doesn’t care about anything at that point. There is a serious drama, but the execution fails to convey the pain. The core issue is again predictable, when is par for sure for most of the fresh content these days. They all lead to a regular and familiar background.
Overall, there are a few funny moments and a story that partially interest in Yedu Chepala Katha. However, the weak direction, terrible editing, and haphazard screenplay play spoilsport and ruin the attempt. In the end, Yedu Chepala Katha is a forgettable fare.
Ayesha Singh and Others?
Among the three female leads, Ayesha Singh has a decent role. She looks apt for the part which requires her to act homely for the most part. The scenes that need her to show the dramatic side are weak. Bhanu Sree Reddy is another apt casting for the role of a tomboyish girl. She has done her part well, which mostly is used to generate fun. Meghana Chowdary’s act is dedicated to the censors, so there is nothing much to add. The actor playing Suneel Kumar as Sunder fails to create an impact. It was so crucial for the whole narrative to work. The rest are ordinary and easily forgettable.
Music and Other Departments?
The music by MT Kavi Shankar is okay for the low budget terrain. The background score is better but gets repetitive with a similar sound getting used many times. The rest of the technical departments are terrible. The editing is the poorest of them all. It seems to be a combined effort of the team and the censor board. The dialogues are superficial
A few Laughs
Better actors, less vulgarity and adult content and more focus on the critical ghost and spirits angle would have easily made the movie stand out from the crowd.
