Kartikeya Gummakonda, Lavanya Tripathi, Aamani starrer romantic entertainer Chaavu Kaburu Challaga helmed by Koushik Pegallapati, has hit the theaters today on 19th March 2021. Karthikeyan has created a sensation in Tollywood with the movie ‘RX 100’. However, the films that followed did not do much magic. Will Karthikeyan hit the success track again with this movie which is releasing in theaters today? To what extent does the original film impress the audience? Let’s see in the review ..
Basti Balaraju(Karthikeya) is a van driver who carries dead bodies to the burial grounds. One fine day, he spots a widow(Lavanya) at her husband’s funeral and falls head over heels for her. He starts wooing her but fails time and again. This is also the time when Balraju’s mother(Amani) starts liking someone else. This brings a tense atmosphere in the film. How will Balraju deal with this delicate situation and also win his love forms the basic story of the film.
Few scenes in Second half
The premise of the love story is good. The Emotions are strong. Story wise , there is nothing much. The dialogues of Chaavu Kaburu Challaga are entertaining. Editing is okay. The cinematography and production values are up to the standard of the film. Dialogues are quite impressive and so was the costume designing done for Lavanya. Editing is decent and so was the production design.
Overall, the story in this “Death Tree” is a bit interesting. As well as Karthikeyan’s solid performance Lavanya Tripathi’s role as well as key emotions in the film stand out as the main attraction. Every man born must die someday. There is no need to grieve every day remembering the dead like that..how can we not bring the dead.
He makes a terrific transformation as Basti Balraju and is superb in his mass role. Karthikeya has improved a lot with his performance and holds the film in all the emotonal scenes. Lavanya gets to play a subdued character in the film but does so well in her emotonal role. Her looks, body language, and performance in ky scenes lift the film.
Amani makes a strong comeback and is amazing as the hero’s mother. She suits her role well and brings a lot of depth to the film with her settled performance. Murali Sharma does what is expected but is getting repetitive these days.
The film gets a good life before the pre interval block and climax. The mother sentiment and justification given to the actions of hero, his mother and why he is so carefree in life look quite good.
The director was impressed with the concept of the film, which opens with the idea of making those who are happy and entering a new life. But some routine boring scenes with a sporadic dull narrative dampen interest in the film.
The film has some decent emotions at regular intervals but the rest of the film is quite dull with mundane scenes and ends as an okay watch this weekend.
