Plus Points in this movie

The backdrop where the love story is set is unique and has not tried before. Credit should go to director Rahul for taking a simple story and setting it beautifully amidst moving family emotions. The consequences in which the lead pair fall in love and how all of it is balanced is the best part of Chi La Sow.

Chilasow is a career-defining film for Sushanth as he makes a decent comeback. With this film, it is clearly proved that he is a perfect fit for doing rom-coms. He looks settled and is at ease with his role. Rahul Ravindran has showcased him quite well and it will be good for Sushanth if he continues choosing films which suit his age and image from now on.

Ruhani Sharma makes a sparkling debut and boy she impresses big time. For a first-timer, she has emoted quite well and handled her complex role with a lot of responsibility. The confrontations are natural and make way for some crackling chemistry between the lead pair. Yet another good performance of the film was from Rohini who plays heroine’s mom. She is very natural and adds a lot of depth to the proceedings.

The romantic scenes have been written with so much conviction. Then, there is the best comedian of our times, Vennela Kishore who lights up the screen with his hilarious comedy. Though he is not there for most of the time, his scenes evoke good laughs for the audience.

Minus Points in this movie

Like in all love stories, the end is always predictable and one knows what is going to happen next. Even though the proceedings are narrated well, they take their own sweet time to unfold and this might no to go well with regular movie audience who like the song and dance template.

The interval episode could have been a bit stronger as the proceedings during this time end on a very simple note. The police episode is prolonged a bit and some scenes can be edited out to make things better.
