From the first look to its latest trailer, Pelli Choopulu created a great positive buzz. Starring Vijay Deverakonda and Ritu Varma in the lead roles, this movie is directed by debutante Tharun Bhascker who has already made a mark with impressive short films like Sainma. Pelli Choopulu is produced by Raj Kandukuri & Yash Rangineni and with Suresh Babu’s association, the film has garnered much hype. Vivek Sagar’s music is already a hit among people, let’s see how the movie has turned out to be.
Prashanth(Vijay) is a carefree guy who doesn’t believe in having goals or ambition in life. Irked by his behaviour, Prashanth’s father wants him to get married to Chitra(Ritu Varma) inorder to set him in the right path. Chitra on the other hand, is career oriented and wants to make it big in food business by owning a food truck. Chitra rejects Prashanth’s marriage proposal. Without any delay, Prashanth proposes marriage to another girl called Richa, daughter of a rich businessman(Anish Kurivilla) who asks Prashanth to prove that he is good for business. On Anish’s insistence, Vijay joins hands with Ritu for a food business as cooking is Vijay’s passion. What happens later forms the crux of the story.
Pelli Choopulu is a refreshing rom com in Telugu with no action elements involved. Vijay Deverakonda and Ritu Varma’s subtle performance makes you believe that these characters exist for real. Nothing is over done in the film and entertainment too is relatable to our daily lives. Priyadarshi who played Vijay’s friend in this movie creates laugh riot with his dialogues and is a natural performer. A dialogue that will leave you in fits is “Na saavu na ishtam neekenduku”. Tharun Bhascker has made an impressive mark and Pelli Choopulu will remain one of the biggest hits this year. Not to forget, Vivek Sagar’s music is loved more when you listen to it while watching the movie on screen.
The movie gets slow and predictable in the second half.
On the whole, Pelli Choopulu is a refreshing film with a breath of fresh air. With no sumo or sword sequences, Pelli Choopulu as the title suggests is a cool and breezy film. It is a must watch in theatres which cant be given a miss.
