Aditi Rao Hydri, Karthi, a historic marvel directed by Mani Ratnam’s, Cheliya is all set for a television premier worldwide. The movie, which released on April this year has went on to win critical acclaim for the efforts of the director and the crew for being able to wrap shooting in a crisp time of 79 days.
Star TV has brought the satellite rights of this venture for the fancy price of Rs 9 Cr. The First Premiere of Cheliya will be telecast on Star MAA TV and soon after end, the next premier will be started at 9 pm on Maa Movies. Cheliya is said to have collected revenue of more than Rs 70 Cr. It has also stars Karthi, Aditi Rao Hydri and others.
Cheliya is a typical mass entertainer. The film is set to take record openings and has everything that we expect from a star hero like Karthi. He makes a thumping comeback and proves that even at this age he can give every star hero a run for their money. If you ignore the predictable story line and dull climax, Chiru’s one man show, superb songs, and a good message makes this film a good watch.
Story moves back and forth as Karthi remembers his past while he is captured in Pakistan. Even that aspect doesn’t infuse any interest due to the poorly written scenes between the lead pair. The romance is never touching nor endearing, does it simply test our patience with confusing conversations and characterizations. It is hard to empathize with the lead role as he is stuck in Pakistan because we cannot develop an emotional connect with him.
