Chaavu Kaburu Challaga is Geetha Arts’ latest presentation featuring Karthikeya and Lavanya. Read on to know if the film impresses or not.
The film is based in Vizag and is about a van driver called Basti Balraju(Karthikeya). He falls for a widow played by Lavayna and tries to woo her. But she does not play any heed to him. This is also the time, Balraju’s mother(Amani) falls for another guy. This turns the tables upside down for Balraju. How his mother’s love story helps his romance and what all problems does Balraju goes through is the basic story.
By the trailers itself, you can make out the basic premise of the film. It takes some time to get into the mood of the film as the hero proposes the heroine right after her husband’s death. Though all this looks odd, it is established well for the audience. Upon this, Karthikeya and his performance lifts the spirit up.
The situational comedy in such a situation is good and has decent flavor. But after this, scenes get repeated and bore the audience. Things only make sense when the heroine’s serious talk to the hero and why she cannot love him is brought in. With this point, the interval is reached and this makes sense.
Also, the mother angle is also brought in well and Amani does so well in her act. But the film gets sidetrack as the love story is quite dull and does not make sense. Lavanya, who is so stubborn with her stance, falls for the hero in no time and this looks silly. She roams with him, gels with his family but is not interested in marriage.
The twist that is brought in the end is also good and from there, the emotions work and film is ended with a good climax. But in all this, the clarity and depth in romance fades away and film becomes dull in many areas.
Plus Points :
- Karthikeya’s performance
- Mother-son emotion
Minus Points :
- Weird premise
- Dull romance
- No chemistry between lead pair
- Repeated scenes
Final word :
Love stories are one and the same always but the premise and characters change. Chaavu Kaburu Challaga has good setup and impressive performances but the narration is not engaging. The film is filled with good episodes when looked individually. But when you put them in a flow and watch it as a film, it does not have the needed effect and leaves with a mixed feeling.
Rating : 2.75/5.0
