Release date: 31st January 2020
Producer Raj Kandukuri is known for his passionate films. After successfully producing films like Pelli Choopulu, Mental Madilo, Raj has introduced his son Shiva into movies with Choosi Choodangaane. Debutante Sesha Sindhu Rao has directed the movie. Choosi Choodangane has created enough interest among audiences with its songs and promos. Let us have a look at the review.
Choosi Choodangaane follows a very routine plot. Siddhu (Shiva Kandukuri) is a happy go lucky guy who is weak in studies. His Mom scolds and makes him join B.Tech through management quota. He falls in love with Aishwarya (Malavika Satishan) there. Somehow their love story ends in breakup. Cut into the story after three years, Siddhu becomes wedding photographer. Shruti (Varsha Bollama) falls in love with Siddhu. However few misunderstandings happen in the love story which makes Shruti to get engaged to somebody else. How Siddhu and Shruti unite after some confusion is the crux of the story.
On Screen Stars
It is an okay debut for Shiva Kandukuri. He looks decent and has given OK performance. There is no stand out scene for him to judge. He hasn’t impressed that much in his role though. Varsha Bollama shines in this predictable tale of love. Her eyes are expressive which gives edge. She has done a commendable performance in the second half. Comedian Venkatesh Kakamanu’s comedy timing is good. He is the only relief in this routine tale. Avasarala Srinivas’s guest role is of no use. Pavitra Lokesh and Anish Kuruvilla as hero’s parents did what routine parents characters usually do. Malavika Satishan is limited to few scenes and a song in the movie.
Coming to technicalities, Gopi Sundar should get the first mention. His melodies are impressive. Lyrics are meaningful which adds more value to the song. Cinematography is nice and every frame looks pleasant to eyes. Though the movie has a crisp run time of 1 Hr 53 minutes it gives lag feeling. Few scenes in first half can be chopped off. Production values are good. Debutante Sesha Sindhu Rao has failed to narrate a fresh story. Even though a routine one, she didn’t opt for an entertaining narration. Most of the scenes have lag which hinders the experience.
Not much to say except for
– Varsha Bollama’s performance
– The scene where heroine goes to hero flat and disturbs him mid night
– Entire first half barring songs
– Emotion less scenes
– Weak climax
It will be shocking to see such a product from a passionate producer like Raj Kandukuri. He failed to give his son a decent launch. Routine story, predictable screenplay, life less scenes make the movie boring.
Immediate reaction at Intermission: Not impressive, All depends on first half
Immediate reaction at end credits: Godd! Another time waste flick
Watch or Not?: Please save your time!
Box Office Status: As Choosi Choodangane is made mostly with newcomers, openings will be low and all depends on the word of mouth. We have to see how audiences react to this predictable love entertainer.
Note: This is not only depends on our rating.. this will be based on how the movie, release season, hero stardom and craze of the movie.
