Choosi Choodangaane Review
|Main Cast:||:||Shiva Kandukuri, Varsha Bollamma, Malavika Satheesan,|
|Director:||:||Sesha Sindhu Rao,|
|Producer:||:||Raj Kandukuri, Suresh Productions,|
Raj Kandukuri, the big producer among the small producers has come up with his new film "Choosi Choodangane" giving the debut break to his son Shiva Kandukuri. Expectations on Raj Kandukuri's films are always considerably good since the impact of Pellichoopulu hasn't gone obsolete. Let us see what is offered in this film.
Siddhu (Shiva Kandukuri) is an average college guy who has no smooth relation with his parents (Aneesh and Pavitra Lokesh). He falls in love with Aishwarya (Malavika Sateesan) a fellow student. They enjoy the moments but the relation comes to a break. Then another girl Sruti (Varsha) comes into his life. What happens next and with who Siddhu gets hooked finally is the story.
The film reminds us of 'Happy Days' in parts. Well, that doesn't mean it is spruced up with some big hit formula. The concept of college love story with no intense elements but soft emotions smells old. Though the film engages in parts, on a whole it fails in holding the interest of audience. The hook factor is missing in narration and the major twist fails to give goosebumps. Some scenes jumps to the next without sustaining the emotion. Some scenes try to give an emotion but fail in mission.
Keeping all this aside, the debutante Shiva Kandukuri proves promising. He has ease in performance and confidence is seen in his body language. He can shine well provided if he chooses right scripts those can really turn the attention of audience.
Malavika is attractive. She seems to have good potential to climb the ladder of stardom down the line.
Varsha has performed well. She has got some length to play different emotions. Music is average. The name Gopi Sundar holds value but nothing great is offered by him. However, two songs Nee Parichayamutho and Venakane Unna are soothing.
Cinematography deserves good feedback. Production values remind us some short films.
The major problem in the film is that the characters are not etched well. The characterization of the protagonist, being his debut, would have had more muscle. Director Sesha Sindhu would have worked more on these elements.
Bottom Line: Average Romantic Comedy
