Chalo - Story
Naga Shourya is a youngster with a craze for fights, who enters the town of Tiruppuram for his education and happens to meet Rashmika Mandanna in his college and falls for her. However , Tiruppuram is known for the quarrel between two villages surrounding Tiruppuram, and now Shourya - Rashmika's love is troubled by this quarrel between villages. Was Shourya able to join the villages and win in his love is what the humorous chalo is all about.
Chalo - Star Performance
Naga Shourya is at his casual best, as he looks Handsome and emotes perfectly, while oozing energy in every sequence he appears. The pretty debutant Sandalwood beauty Rashmika Mandanna, makes a neat debut, as she gets her expressions right and her perfect dubbing complements her gorgeous presences. While the support cast including Achyuth Kumar are adequate, Viva Harsha and Vennela Kishore bring down the house with their comic timing and hilarious one-liners.
Chalo - Technical Team
Background score by Mahati Swara Sagar is in sync with the fun mood of the movie, while of his songs, Chusi Chudagane is a definite repeat mode number and is the pick of the lot. Cinematography by Sai Sriram captures the colorful visuals of the college as well as the rustic locales of Tiruppuram beautifully, and makes chalo a good visual experience. Debutant director Venky Kudumula has begun his career with a tried and tested plot of a college love story and has also got a cute onscreen couple to his support and he makes the best use of them , by introducing a new conflict point in the movie, a village quarrel playing havoc in the love of the lead pair.
Chalo - Analysis
Though the love sequences and the hero teasing Rashmika initially look cliched, and monotonous, Venky Kudumula compensates for it , by lacing humour throughout the screenplay while also adding the much needed, surprising twists towards the interval and the climax block. With good music and Cinematography supporting chalo, despite its flaws including a stereotype love and village quarrel flashback that drag the screenplay, which could have been trimmed to make the movie compact, Chalo is a quite decent start for director Venky Kudumula, and a fine entertainer that helps Naga Shourya get an opportunity to salvage some pride.
