Twist in the tale arises when falls in love with Divya(Rakul Preet). What will Karthik do now ? Whom will he end up marrying ? and How will he manage to reunite his family ? That forms the rest of the story.
Pandaga Chesko suffers from complete lack of originality. You will see a tons of similarities and Kona Venkat's clinched stuff in the film. The movie rests on a wafer thin storyline and after a point it gets humdrum to sit through. Movie screenplay is nothing, but a slapdash placement of silly jokes in a routine senseless plot.
A few sequences are funny but that's about it. If the script was a bit original and the sequences were well arranged, the movie would have been a better entertainer. For this kind of story it tells, Pandaga Chesko is terribly long and has a running time of two hour and forty two minutes. Almost three hours of narration unfortunately doesn't merit this storyline. Trimmed of probably a good twenty minutes the move could have appeared a bit more compact. Director Gopichand and Kona Venkat script lacks poignancy, empathy, refreshing humour and bite. Direction by Gopichand Malineni is not up to the mark.
Coming to other Technical aspects, Songs and Background Music by Thaman SS is not upto the mark. Cinematography by Arthur A. Wilson is adequate. Dialogues by Kona Venkat works in parts. Ex; Life lo goal unnavadu reach ayyaka cool avuthadu ye goal leni vaadu ekkadi kaina doosukellipothadu, Ennalu paaganu gellipincharu ee oka saari premanu gellipinchandi, Kontha mandiki mirror la kontha mandiki error la kanapadthanu, Mogathanam annedi mattalo kadhu ra chathallo untundi, Neeku BP vasthe panni vadu vanukuthadu naaku BP vasthe prathi vaadu vanukuthaadu..etc. Fight choreography is middling. The production values of United Movies banner is alright.
