EditingPerformance: Sai Dharam Tej has given his top notch performance in the role of Vijay. He delivered his best. He has done full justice to his role. His scenes with Sunil are truly some of the best in Chitralahari. Sunil gets good role and delivers his best especially in the first half of the movie. He tries the best to get into the skin of his character. Kalyani Priyadarshan, Nivetha Pethuraj looks good. Nivetha Pethuraj carries out her role with ease. Posani Krishna Murali is good in the role of Sai Dharam Tej’s father. Vennela Kishore is hilarious and he is honest in his performance. Others performed accordingly.
Technical: Karthik Ghattamaneni’s camera work is outstanding. The artwork is also superb. Devi Sri Prasad’ music is good but the background score is superb. Editing is fine. The story of Chitralahari is simple but interesting. The dialogues are meaningful. Coming on the work of Kishore Tirumala, he narrates Chitralahari in a slow manner and presents Sai Dharam Tej in a neat manner.
Verdict :On the whole, Chitralahari is the emotional story of an underdog with some decent moments in both the halves. But the slow pace and serious tone of the film may not be liked by a section of the audience who come expecting entertainment. Because of this, the box office prospects of the film will also be tested. Having said that, the film is way better than Tej’s previous duds and has some feel-good moments which are quite relatable to the youth. Finally, the film can easily be given a shot once but just keep your expectations in check.
