Mega hero Sai Dharam Tej is back with another commercial film Chitralahari, directed by Nenu Sailaja fame director Kishore tirumala. Kalyani Priyadarshan and Nivetha Pethuraj played the female leads. Produced by the most successful movie makers Mythri Movie Makers.
Chitralahari is the name of a restaurant and the entire film revolves around this restaurant
The movie opens with a court scene where Vijay(sai tej) is an accuse ,and he starts narrating his story and describes his looser character, and kalayani intro happens with the song Prema vennala , as usual conflicts arise between them , posani played as tej Father ,the father son bonding came out so good and the story movies to Mumbai where vennala Kishore gives his entry the comedy timing of Sunil is so good,and the story goes on.
Sai tej gave the best performance when compared to his previous films,posani character and the way father and son bonding showcased is a highlight for the film,the comedy is played in the right timing, DSP gave a descent background score to the film.
Though the director gave his best in the first half the slow narration in the second half is a minus for the film and he couldn't convey the message properly .
Director Kishore tirumala gave a ok ok narration , DSP gave a descent background score to the film, production values of mythri movie makers are really good.
The story is is good but the film used to be on other level if the second half is narrated in a proper way without any lag,it seems like sai tej need another film to get a big hit,over all it is an other normal film.
