Cineforest Rating: 2.75/5

Movie: Kali Charan

Cast: Chaitanya Krishna, Chandini

Director: Praveen Sri

Release Date: November 8th 2013




Kalicharan (chaitanya) is a young and tough guy who beats up the key follower of the local politician Pasupathy (pankaj) and lands in jail. His family decides to take him away from that place and even his love life with Theertha (chandni) gets disturbed. But twist of events occurs and Kali stays back in town and it leads to the showdown between him and Pasupathy. Why did Kali and Pasupathy clash and who emerges successful in this form the rest of the story?




A story of 1980s basing on true incidents has been narrated in a good way. But the essence of grudge and revenge went lagging somewhere. The film goes on with a very slow pace with pale narration. Sri Praveen (director) took good amount of time to establish the plot and failed to drive audience into the story. He has devoted maximium amount of time for songs rather concentrating on his conflict.


Actually, this movie tests the patience of audience. Chaitanya Krishna did his performance with good ease. Few emotions made audience roll out tears too. Songs, music and BGM were awesomely scored by Nandan. Chandini, though it is her debut film in Telugu, acted very well. Fights look natural and camera work is appreciable. The only thing that ruined the minds of audience is Story lagging.



Chaitanya Krishna performed very well and for sure he will be critically acclaimed for his role. Chandini is good in her role. Naagineedu and Rao Ramesh did justice to their respective characters.


Technical Departments:


This is certainly not a film to be made by a talented person who proudly says he is a student of RGV, who was certainly the best director of the Indian film industry. Everything went wrong in this film starting from its middling screenplay to a jerry-built treatment. There is not a single point which can be spoken about the film or one particular sequence which can be remembered for its slow narration.


The sequences fail to spark some interest in the audience. the entire first half and the flash back episode in the second half is totalled dragged till the end. Cinematography by Vishwadeva & Satish is clean. Cinematographers & Director must appreciated for their effort for finding such localities.


Music by Nandan Raj gives a remainder of various hit tracks. Transformation of scenes is not that promising in the film. Editor should have taken sufficient care regarding the transformation scenes. Fights in the film are very ordinary. Production values are ok.
