FIDirector: Vikram Sirikonda
Cast: Ravi Teja, Raashi Khanna, Seerat Kapoor
Ravi Teja’s latest action drama Touch Chesi Chudu, directed by Vikram Sirikonda, leaves a lot to be desired. The film tells the story of Karthikeya, a businessman based in Pondicherry, who loves his family more than anything else in the world. When his father insists he get married soon, Karthikeya meets Pushpa (Raashi Khanna). After a few embarrassing situations, when the two finally express their love for each other, Karthikeya’s past comes back to haunt him.
While Ravi Teja’s energy remains intact, the film falls short of being an engaging drama. It also fails miserably in creating strong characters and dramatic situations, and even the villains don’t get the focus that Ravi Teja gets throughout the film. In the end, Touch Chesi Chudu turns out to be a litmus test for our patience. If there’s something that works in favour of the film, it’s Mani Sharma’s background score. But even then, there’s hardly anything to root for. Touch Chesi Chudu is a boring drama and there are no two ways about it.
