Choosi Choodangaane is the latest Telugu film in the theatres. Marking the debut of Shiva Kandukuri, the film also introduces a new director Sesha Sindhu Rao to the film field. The movie is produced by Raj Kandukuri who earlier came up with the project Pelli Choopulu, Mental Madilo. The film released today and read on to know the film's review.
The film is a new-age rom-com that focusses on the life of Siddu (Shiva Kandukuri), a wedding photographer who struggles to become a fashion photographer and his love stories at different parts of his life. In College, Siddu falls in love with Aishwarya. In the later part of his life, another beautiful girl enters his life and brings a positive change in his life. She is Shruti, a drummer.
Shiva Kandukuri got two different kinds of variations in his character, but the actor has pulled it off really well. Despite being a debutante, Shiva Kandukuri managed to showcase so much of maturity in his acting. Varsha Bollamma's fresh and impressive performance will strike the chord with the audience. Especially her chemistry with Shiva Kandukuri worked out really well.
Malavika Sateesan justified her role and made the movie even more interested. Pavitra Lokesh and Anish Kuruvilla gave their 100% as Shiva Kandukuri's parents in the film. Gururaj Manepalli also delivered an honest performance in the film. The rest of the actors also made their presence felt.
Director Sesha Sindhu has come up with a really interesting storyline for the movie. The story revolves around two different parts of the hero's life and the director has succeeded in narrating both the parts equally interesting and impressive. His pace of narration is also quite impressive and the director executed the story really well.
Production values by Raj Kandukuri are lavish. Music by Gopi Sundar is astounding. A couple of songs worked out well and also his BGM elevated all the scenes really well. Cinematographer Vedaraman has produced some beautiful visuals for the film. His camera angles are also quite impressive. Editing by Ravi Teja Girijala is clean.
The movie starts off on an interesting note. The first half showcased one part of the hero's life and the second half focuses on the other part. We can say that the director has handled both really well. Especially, the actors also succeeded in showcasing innocence as well as maturity in the film. The entire first half is filled with comedy, romance whereas the second half will also bring out some good emotions to the film. The beautiful presentation of the movie made it even easier for the younger generation audience to connect more with the storyline. The movie also has a good message in the end which is conveyed in a subtle way. Overall, 'Choosi Choodangaane' is a perfect romantic entertainer.
