What Is Good
- Regina's glamour
What Is Bad
- Romance Track
- Pathetic Direction
- Character Developments
Background score by Sam CS is perfect as it matches the mood of the movie, while of his songs, except Yethetho Aanaene, none pass muster. Richard M. Nathan's cinematography is top notch capturing the sensuous Krabi song as well as the spectacular stunts and chases convincingly. Suresh's editing could have been better as the first half lacks pace.
After working with Vishal so far in his career, Thiru has joined hands with Gautham Karthik for the first time in Mr. Chandramouli, and this time he's got the support of Karthik as well. While he has got good characters for his leads, a boxer and an app developer, he has failed to sketch them well, as none serves the purpose. Especially, Regina Cassandra is made to prance around in skimpiest of clothes in songs and speaking regressive, old-fashioned and pro-stalking dialogues.
The love track is artificial, and while the whole movie was expected to be about cab service crimes, there's not much emphasis on that, as the movie enters into regular hero vs villain drama. And even among villains, Mahendran tries to keep the audience engaged while Santosh Prathap is annoying. The first half moves pointlessly with scenes that are presented as comedy, but all jokes being sexist or body shaming and fall flat. Mr. Chandramouli also doesn't make proper use of the relationship thread between Varalaxmi Sarathkumar and Karthik.
While the one sizzling Yethetho Aanaene song impresses, Sam CS is felt only in the BGM and makes one wonder if this was the person who scored for Vikram Vedha. All said Mr. Chandramouli had a good premise, and good characterizations but falls badly as a huge letdown, with the medical condition forced as a twist, and the uninteresting cat and mouse game without thrills.
Meet Nabha Natesh...The new hottie in town Superstar Mahesh Babu's relative, the promising Sudheer Babu, had a slow yet steady start to his career, occasionally scoring hits like Prema Katha Chitram, Bhale Manchi Roju, the multistarrer Shamanthakamani to name a few.
