Siddharth has been one of those highly successful romantic heroes of Telugu Cinema. Nuvvosthanante Nenoddantana and Bommarillu have given him huge fan following, too. But he lost such market. He has now produced a film named, Chithaa and dubbed it has Chinni in Telugu. The trailer Chinni showcased that the movie is about a sensitive issue. Will Chinna be his long awaited comeback film? Lets discuss at length.
Chinna(Siddharth) aka Eeswar, lives his life to majorly look after his elder brother’s family. He is attached to Chitti/Sundari, his elder brother’s daughter and her friend, Munni. He doesn’t have any bad intentions towards them. But one day, Munni goes through sexual abuse and people her parents suspect him. This shows effect on him. Suddenly, Sundari goes missing and Chinna has to work with police to bring her back. Can he? His love(Nimisha Sajayan) tries to keep him calm in this situation. Why? What happened to her? Watch Chinna to know more.
Siddharth has proved his acting capabilities in numerous films. The problem has always been with his script selection. Chinna is a welcome change for him as he chose a simple yet effective script. The screenplay helps him to blend into the simple man persona and he excelled. Nimisha Sajayan and other cast members have done a very effective job. Majorly, young actors needs to be appreciated for their performances. Chinna belongs to them more than Siddharth.
SU Arun Kumar has decided to give us all a wake up call about toxic masculine and false urges. At times, we forget the bigger picture in trying to “avenge” for someone close to us, without carrying for their wishes. Chinna keeps this at the crux of the emotional climax while keeps the narrative engaging throughout. This is a film that cannot be described easily as good or bad. While it does have flaws in writing and execution, Chinna holds up our interest well in a simplistic movie about a gravely sensitive issue.
BGM imbibes the theme perfectly
Slightly slow pacing
Very Simplistic Plot
Chinna Movie Bottomline: Emotional Core Scores
