Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja, after the grand success of Raja The Great, has come to the theatres with an exciting movie called Touch Chesi Chudu. Ravi Teja pinned many hopes on this movie. Raashi Khanna and Seerat Kapoor are the heroines. Vikram Sirikonda is the newcomer who made his directional debut with the film. Nallamalapu Srinivas and Vallabhaneni Vamsi Mohan are the producers of the movie. Pritam is the music director, and Mani Sharma scored the BGM. Check out the review of the film here.
Karthikeya (Ravi Teja) is a sincere cop who puts his duty over the family. In the process, his marriage with Divya (Seerat Kapoor) gets called off as Divya feels that Karthikeya might not give her proper time after the wedding. When Karthikeya is investigating a murder case, he finds Irphan (Freddy) as a murderer and starts chasing him. What happens then? Why did Karthikeya have to put an end to his police job? Forms the story of the movie.
Mass Maharaj Ravi Teja is seen in a role that has got two different shades. There is nothing new to talk about his performance as we have already witnessed him doing similar kind of character in the past. With action sequences and comic scenes, the actor gave his best. Raashi Khanna's cute performance is impressive. She did well in the comedy scenes. It would have been nice if she was also seen in the second half. Seerat Kapoor's role is incomplete. There is no substantial villain in the film, but Freddy Dharuwala tried his best to make a mark. Vennela Kishore, Satyam Rajesh, Jeeva and others did well and made their presence felt.
Technically, the movie is intense. Chota K Naidu's camera work is lovely. The background score by Mani Sharma is brilliant. This score has elevated the movie correctly. The production values of the movie are grand. This is Vikram Sirikonda's first film, and he coordinated with everyone like an expert. The editing is neat. The writing is weak, and the dialogues are okay. The film ultimately lacks freshness, and the production values of the movie are rich.
The film Touch chesi chudu has a poorly written and executed first half. The debut director Vikram Sirikonda failed to make an impressive mark with the movie. The flat and dull first half has nothing to offer for the audiences. The movie, on the whole, fails to impress in every aspect.
The mass appealing second half of the movie is a saving factor to some extent. Ravi Teja impressed in the role of a cop, but his efforts could not take the film to the unbeaten path. The significant drawbacks of the film are the routine script, predictable screenplay, and lousy music. Finally, the film hardly makes any impression.
