CHOOSI CHOODANGAANE FILM REVIEW
History: Siddu (Shiva Kandukuri) is a university student who falls in love with Aishwarya (Malavika Sateeshan). They separate and Siddu follows his passion for photography after college. After 3 years, he meets Shruti (Varsha Bollamma) who has an interesting past. Who is Shruti and how the couple expresses love is what it is about.
Review: Choosi Choodangaane does not intend to tell a novel story from the start. You know what will come next and nothing really surprises or disappoints you on the screen. And that is not necessarily a bad thing. Siva Kandukuri chooses an intelligent film to debut, without disappointing the audience but not letting them expect much from him.
The first half of the movie spends his time at the University of Siddu, with older people bothering him to talk to Aishwarya. What happens next is no mystery and behold, they fall in love, go on ice cream dates, watch movies and avoid friends, like any other couple. For anyone who has seen the progress, it is no surprise that this relationship does not end well. Director Sesha Sindhu Rao intelligently does not add weight to the content displayed on the screen. Fortunately, the film lacks unnecessary comedy tracks or, worse, action scenes. For a refreshing change, all you can see is that engineering students fall in love and follow their passion.
When Siddu decides to follow his passion for photography after college, he disappoints his mother. He also meets Shruti, who has a surprise for him. While Siddhu is surprised by what he has in the store, it seems quite illogical to see it on the screen. But he doesn't care much because writer Padmavati season the film with dialogues to feel good. Shruti's characterization is such a saving grace for the film, that I really wish she were there in the first half as well. Varsha achieves the role beautifully and is natural, not to mention, beautiful to see on the screen. The subtle comedy makes you smile and Rajesh Khanna and Venkatesh Kakamanu really deserve that job more. The climax is as sweet as the movie and it works.
Shiva Kandukuri plays the boy next to the tee, but he also has no room to disappoint. However, their performance needs to improve, also their expressions. The debutante Malavika offers stable performance and also looks beautiful. Varsha, the most experienced of the lot, of course surpasses them all. She is a promising addition to the Telugu film industry. Gopi Sundar's music works in a few scenes, but it's definitely not his best work.
Movies like Choosi Choodangaane are like a comforting dish full of carbohydrates: they can be regular, not boring or disappointing, but it fills your stomach. If you crave a popcorn clock this weekend, try it.
The story of the film begins with Siddhu is a mama's boy who acts according to his will and joins a Btech course. In his university life he falls in love with Aishwarya. Just when the course is ready to complete, Aishwarya breaks up with Siddhu and leaves him in trouble. As time passes, Siddhu meets Shruthi and falls in love with her. Just when the couple prepares to propose each other, a sudden turn in the love story arises.
