Chitralahari Story

Vijay Krishna (Sai Dharam Tej), an engineer who doesn't desire a routine career, is at the center of this cast of characters. He is shown as an inventor who can create goods, programs, and other things. In a scene from his early years, he comes up with a clever idea, but another student has previously created something similar that has received praise. The curse still exists. His employers' executives don't have the time or the motivation to support his ideas, so he eventually settles for a job as a television repair. The banal elements of a mainstream Telugu movie enter the scene before we can consider how the concept of an innovator not being chosen can make for an intriguing story. The hero finds comfort in (where else?) a bar, refers to himself as a loser and makes friends with people who are similar to him, including Sunil, who wants to be a lyricist-singer but does something else. Lahari is Vijay Krishna's lone source of happiness (Kalyani Priyadarshan). The way their romance is portrayed is nothing new. He follows her to French class and earns her trust over time. Vijay declaring his love to her while they watch Conjuring is the scenario that jumps out. But when it comes down to it, it's him who causes problems. She dislikes drunk and rambling men, so he hides his drinking behavior because she is gullible and trusts him. Nivetha Pethuraj, who canable to see through men's schemes, enters the scene, however, and everything is unraveled. Vijay Krishna is still working on projects and presenting them to businesses in the midst of all of this. His father offers him a lot of support (Posani Krishna Murali). Posani is playing another solid role after Majili last Friday. In one of the Chitralahari posani dialogues, he mentioned that young people may ruin their relationships and don't need outside villains in one of his quotes. As mentioned earlier chitralahari full movie telugu is avaliable to watch online and offline. 

Chitralahari Movie Review

This section will take you through chithralahari review of the movie and how the audience responded when it was released. Writer-director Kishore Tirumala attempts to find the ideal balance between comedic and deeply moving scenes. In the end, he somewhat messes everything up. When Vijay Krishna (Sai Dharam Tej) expresses his emotions in his most exposed moments, he appears to be collapsing. The viewers are unaware that they are seeing his life-or-death story until such a scene appears. Although it's no longer illegal to commit suicide under IPC, the director does take artistic licence in this movie. The climax ought to have produced a biting critique on our culture, where cunning corporate executives stifle rising brilliance. The character of Nivetha Pethuraj is well-written, and she gives a commendable performance. There could have been fewer clichés. She emerges as a pillar of strength in the second half, which is largely devoted to her character. 

Sai Dharam Tej has fully given up on the mass-hero image in favor of this child figure. His shaggy beard appearance has also been helpful for the makeover. He did a great job in this regard. While Nivetha Pethuraju is more appealing as a corporate lady and makes a stronger impact thanks to her superior acting abilities, Kalyani Priyadarshan is only average. Sunil and Vennela Kishore have provided some light relief. Chitralahari posani dialogues play a substantial role as Sai Dharam's father once more. Kalyani Priyadarshan portrays the ideal example of a young lady who trusts the man she loves but later wonders if she made the correct decision. She does her best given the constraints of her role. She excels in the scene in the metro where she effectively portrays her exhaustion. With a rather well-developed personality, Nivetha Pethuraj's skepticism and stony demeanor are understandable. She does a good job at it. Tamilian Vennela Kishore, perhaps? That wasn't very believable, but every time he trembles in Nivetha's presence, he ups the amusement factor. The movie contains several excellent musics by Devi Sri Prasad. They significantly benefit this romantic performer. The production values and cinematography are excellent. The editing looks good and runs well. Hoping that this chitralahari review has been helpful to you. Chitralahari full hd movie in telugu will give you the best view to watch few scenes from the movie. 


"Chitralahari" is included in the final 35 minutes. It would have been a different movie if clichés had been avoided. The love song has the potential to be much better. The comedy factor is quite low. Sai Dharam and Nivetha receive praise for their performances. The conversations are memorable.
