After delivering a series of decent hit movies like Kalyana Vaibhogame, Oohalu Gusagusalade, Kalyana Vaibigame and Jyo Achyuthananda, young actor Naga Shaurya is back with another romantic and comedy entertainer Chalo, which has hit the theaters today on 2nd February. His previous offering Kathalo Rajakumari was bombed at the box office and he pinned lot of hopes on Chalo. Let us see how the movie has fared with the audience.
Story: Hari (Naga Shourya) is a young guy who finds joy in fights. Fed up with his nature, his parents send him to a place called Tirupppuram which is located in Andhra-Tamilnadu border where Telugu people, headed by Keshava (Achyuth Kumar) and Tamil people, led by Veera Muththu (Mime Gopi) fight with each other. He falls in the love of Muththu’s daughter Karthika (Rashmika). Soon Hari realizes that his marriage with Karthika will land in an obstacle. He decides to know about the fight that happened between the two groups. The rest is all about how the problem of the villages is solved.

Performances: Naga Shourya as Hari delivered his best. His body language, natural performance, way of comic style impressed the audiences. He looks stylish and handsome in the film. Rashmika Mandanna performed really well. Naresh is good as Hero’s father. Vennela Kishore dominates in a cameo. Achyuth Kumar, Raghu Babu, Viva Harsha, Pragathi, Praveen, Satya, Sudharshan, Rajendran and others performed accordingly.
Technical: The movie deals with a routine romance story and its screenplay is predictable in parts. The director manages to engage the audiences with some interesting comedy and romantic scenes. The dialogues are well written. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao and Thammi Raju is fine. Production values are impressive and Chalo doesn’t looks like a low budget film. The music by Mahati is good. The background score is also impressive. Sai Sriram’s camera work is eye-candy.
Analysis: Overall Chalo is a good romantic entertainer with loads of comedy. The chemistry between Naga Shourya and Rashmika Mandanna worked very well. Though the story line of the movie is simple but Venky Kudumula has given a twist to make it an enjoyable concept. The first half of the film is very funny with interesting twists. The second half starts on a slow note but Vennela Kishore as Param saved it with some good comedy scenes. The climax could have been better.
