Ravi Teja who has a liking to police characterizations and scripts is back again with yet another such movie and his Touch Chesi Chudu has opened to screening across the world today. Ravi has found luck almost every time with police scripts and is expecting this one to go his way as well. Did the movie manage to impress the audience? Let’s find out.
Story of the film is a tried and tested formula in Tollywood, hero-heroine-local goon and the actual flashback formula. How Raashi falls in love with the hero, how the hero gets into a dirty brawl with goons, what is his backdrop and how he ends up winning, sound routine eh? Well, that is what the film has in store.
Ravi Teja who is a live wire on screen disappoints a bit with this film as he had little scope to showcase his energy and wherever he had the opportunity to, he’s done with extreme ease. Raashi Khanna is decent while Seerat Kapoor role may go unnoticed. Villain Freddy is ok and Murali Sharma gets a meaty role yet again.
Songs and Background Music:
Songs of the film are poor and are not great to watch on screen as well. Some of the songs actually act as speed breakers while the background music is not that great as well. Pritam disappoints with the film and much more may have been expected of him.
Direction, Screenplay and Dialogues
Vikram Sirikonda must be said to have wasted a golden opportunity to make it big with a star at hand. He fails miserably in handling the script and his hero and never really makes an impression on you. His characterization of the hero is weak for the most part and the movie and screenplay picks pace only in the second half with a below par first half. No twists spring a surprise and everything falls flat in narration except for a couple of scenes in the second half. The climax falls flat again making it a boring watch. Dialogues are average and need no special mention.
Cinematography is average and the film doesn’t look pleasing on the eye, especially with a star like Ravi Teja at hand, much more could have been expected of the visuals. Even the costumes used do not help get a better feel viewing the film.
Production values are poor from Nallamalapu Bujji and the film seems to have been shot on very low budget. At times where even low budget movies are also being showcased beautifully on screen, this film falls flat with its quality and doesn’t impress you one bit.
Overall, Touch Chesi Chudu is a below average fare only to be viewed for a couple of scenes in the second half. Poor songs and subpar quality doesn’t add value to the proceedings either. The first half tests your patience while the second half starts well and the graph keeps falling down at the end again.
