There have been quite a few movies that handled the underdog theme and turned profitable. These tales are profitable because of the relatable characters and conditions. However Chitralahari appeared too dramatic and sometimes disengaging due to some atypical writing. The director takes loads of time to return the primary level and as soon as he reaches there, the proceedings flip predictable which is the primary disadvantage.

The protagonist’s love story takes off on an entertaining word. First half of the movie is essentially satisfactory. Actual hassle begins within the second half the place the protagonist must take agency steps in the direction of success. And likewise the characterization of Vijay Krishna performed by Sai Dharam Tej is director’s ace, which is sort of relatable to the youth. Second half is criminally underwritten and it appears as if the director is simply passing the time earlier than coming into the climax half.

Chitralahari does properly in ticking some bins proper. It has a likable lead character and a reasonably first rate romantic monitor. The characters are fleshed out and the songs are on the cash. It begins as a peppy youthful entertainer however ends as a preachy message-oriented film. Sai Tej is attempting his greatest however he must deal with recognizing the appropriate scripts.
