Chuttalabbayi Movie Review
Director Veerabhadram, who had delivered two successive hits with his first two films Poolarangadu and Aha Na Pellanta followed by the flop Bhai with Nagarjuna, has returned with Chuttalabbayi with Aadi and Namita Pramod. Babjee (Aadi) is a recovery agent for a private bank in Hyderabad. He meets Kavya (Namita), a police officer’s sister, at his friend’s sister marriage. They later meet unexpectedly a few times and Kavya’s brother mistakenly thinks that the two are in love. Her brother, who thinks that the two are eloping, asks cops to apprehend them. Meanwhile Kavya and Babjee catch a train and reaches Babjee’s village. The story starts from this point.
Veerabhadram, it seems, has not learnt from his mistakes in Bhai. His forte is comedy and he concentrates on those scenes and forgets about the story. Chuttalabbayi is thus an ordinary, predictable film. The story is also similar to the Hindi blockbuster Chennai Express. The action scenes are good though one of them seems to have been copied from Brundavanam. The film also has many illogical scenes with a mediocre story and screenplay. Overall, Chuttalabbayi has nothing to offer and Aadi has to wait for some more time to get a good hit. The very same conclusion applies to director Veerabhadram.
