Chalo Review & Rating|
Naga Shaurya made a sparkling debut with Oohalu Gusagusalaade and with the movie's success offers followed him. As he accepted movies in a row, he had to taste back to back to failures. After a brief gap from movies, he has come up with Chalo worked as an assistant director for Shaurya's 2015 flick Jadoogadu. Right from the first look poster, everything about Chalo seemed bright and positive. The inclusion of Kannada sensation, Rashmika Mandanna as the female lead helped the movie to reach out to the youth at whom this film is targetted. Adding to that, Chiranjeevi attended the pre-release event of Chalo which gave the momentum for Chalo just before the release. With songs composed by Mani Sharma's son Mahati Swara Sagar becoming a huge hit, expectations went higher. Now, will Chalo be able to meet these expectations and give Naga Shaurya the much-needed hit he is waiting for? Let's find out in Chalo movie review.
Chalo revolves around Hari (played by Naga Shaurya), who is interested in fights and disputes. For some reasons, Hari is sent to Tiruppuram, a village on the border of Tamilnadu and Andhra Pradesh. Both the states people fight with each for one reason or the other. Shaurya too involves in a few of such fights. Shaurya later falls in love with Karthika (played by Rashmika), the daughter of Veeramuthu (played by Mime Gopi), the leader of Tamil village. How Hari manages to find out the reasons for the fights between them and solves them is the story all about.
Naga Shaurya looks comfortable in a role that suits his age perfectly and he does a superb job. He seems to have taken care of looks, styling this time and he looks handsome in Chalo. Performance wise, he has improved a lot compared to his recent flicks and carries Chalo on his shoulders. His role, Hari has been written very well and his body language, attitude are on point this time. He gets an opportunity to showcase his comic timing as well which he uses to bring in few laughs along with other comedians. Rashmika Mandanna who made her Telugu debut with Chalo brings in a lot of freshness to the movie. She looks absolutely gorgeous in her role and her chemistry with Shaurya is a treat to watch. Rashmika's debut is surely one of the best we've seen in the recent times and she is surely an actress to watch out for in the future. Chalo works majorly because of the comedy and comedians Sathya and Vennela Kishore have done a pretty good job. Especially Vennela Kishore is hilarious towards the end of the film and he saves the day for the team of Chalo. Sudarshan and Viva Harsha who entertained us on Youtube got decent roles this time and they were successful in generating comedy.
Chalo is a superb product from the production house of Naga Shaurya, Ira Creations. Though this is the banner's first film, they made sure that the production values are high and the film looks good on screen. As seen in the trailer, the visuals look rich and the camerawork of Sai Sriram is top class. He captures the visuals of rural areas brilliantly and the way he captured Ammaye Chalo Antu song is superb. Music by Mahati Swara Sagar is too good and all the songs have been shot well. Chusi Chudangane and Cheppave Balamani click well with the youth and mass audience and have been received well at the theatres.
Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao and Thammi Raju is good in the first half and could've been better in the second half. Art direction by Raam Arasavilli deserves a mention.
Coming to the story and screenplay, Venky Kudumula does a decent job. He has come up with a simple story that has ample scope for comedy and he utilizes it perfectly. Though there is nothing special in the story it is the screenplay which does the trick in Chalo. His screenplay is superb in the first half and pretty average in the second half. Had he taken a little care during the second half, he would've had a perfect winner on his hands. His direction is superb, however, as he makes use of the actors perfectly and extracts superb performances from them. Though it is his first film, he has dealt with the film well. But he fails in bringing out the emotional depth to the story. Nevertheless, he etches out a neat and cute feel-good entertainer to watch with the entire family.
Verdict: Chalo is a neat romantic comedy, go for it.
