Cheluvanarayana Swamy, who goes by the name Charlie, is an orphan who owns a vatara in Chamarajpet. This guy, who is everyone's favourite, falls in love with Gayathri, who he befriends and rescues from Hampi. Though, there's also his friend Purvi who loves him...
Debutant director Shiva has come up with an interesting triangular love story with Charlie, which has everything going for it in the first half, but ends up being a hotch potch in the second. While the second half seems a tad tedious the film does make for a one-time watch, especially for those who love their dose of masala and action.
The film undoubtedly belongs to actor Krishna. As Charlie, he gets to showcase his entire repertoire, ranging from action to comedy to dancing skills. He has charming screen presence and he does manage to hold the second half together, despite the script failing him at times.
