Cricketer Yash Puri decided to become an actor a few years ago, and is now gearing up for the release of his film Cheppalani Undi. The movie has been advertised pretty well over the past few weeks. It is produced by RB Choudhary and directed b Arun Barathil. The film features Tanikella Bharani, Ali, Sunil, Satya and several others in key roles, while Stefy Patel is the leading lady of the film.

Story:

The story of Cheppalani Undi revolves around Chandrasekhar, who wants to make it big as a journalist. He tries his best to get his big break as a journalist. In the meantime, he falls in love and just when everything seems to be going fine, his life is seemingly changed forever due an unfortunate incident. What is that incident and what happens in the end forms the rest of the story.

On-Screen Performances:

Yash Puri looks good, but is good in certain scenes as well, especially in those where he is seen speaking a different language. He has definitely improved a lot as an actor when compared to his previous venture, but he has a long way to go. He has also improved his dancing and action skills. Yash fell very short when it came to emotional or serious situations, as he wasn’t able to sell the situation well.

Stefy Patel doesn’t make any impact and is very much forgettable in the role that she’s been given, and with her performance as well.

The supporting cast, Tanikella Bharani, Sunil, Satya, Ali and others are good in their roles. Rajeev Kanakala is seen in a key role in the film, and he’s good as well.

Off-Screen Talents:

Director Arun Bharathil has chosen a familiar concept with a slight twist, nevertheless, the overall concept of the film is pretty decent. While his comedy works is places, mostly because of the cast in the movie, it falls flat predominantly. The film could have been executed better, and the screenplay could have been written better. The screenplay is quite predictable and the entire film lags a lot, which is a major drawback for the film.

The background score of the film dissolves into the background, and doesn’t really stand-out. The camera work is okay, and the production design is alright as well. The editing could have been a lot better.

Plus Points:

  • Concept

Minus Points:

  • Lead actors’ performances
  • Too much lag
  • Predictable storyline

Verdict: Cheppalani Undi had a lot of promise to its concept, all of which has been lost in its translation to the big screen. The film can be safely avoided in theatres, and is best to watch on OTT.

  1. I would like to show some thanks to you just for bailing me out of this type of condition. After searching through the the net and meeting techniques which were not powerful, I figured my entire life was done. Existing devoid of the strategies to the issues you’ve solved all through the short post is a crucial case, and those that would have badly affected my entire career if I had not noticed your web site. Your own mastery and kindness in taking care of the whole lot was vital. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a stuff like this. It’s possible to at this point look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the reliable and sensible guide. I will not think twice to propose your web page to any person who would need recommendations on this area.

  2. Good day! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of Wordpress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
