A good movie needs a good script and the director should be able to give life to the script with a lively narration. But director Saikrishna Kudla does not impress you either with the script or the
narration. Chella Pilli is a chaotic movie which neither conveys a message nor entertains you. Except for Vijaya Raghavendra, who has to some extent taken the responsibility of carrying the story forward with good performance, others look silly with their performance.
The story revolves around Hemanth (Vijaya Raghavendra) who busts a drug mafia. The situation is set when drug lord Anwar asks Pachhu to handover some drugs to a person. They hide the drug in a doll. But the doll goes missing. How does Hemanth bust the drug mafia? We also have a romantic track with Hemanth and Diya (Aishwarya Nag) falling in love with each other, which lacks seriousness. It would have been better if the movie was trimmed by half an hour.
Aishwarya Nag has done a good job with her expressions. Shobhraj looks like a joker in his roel as a police officer. Former chief minister DV Sadananda Gowda appears in a scene where he opens a mall and gives a speech. Cinematography by PC Ravee is okay. Music by Mikku Kavil is not good enough to retain the tunes in memory.
Indian markets are far more mature and have given their thumbs down to the controversial Food Security Bill. But the UPA government will do all it takes to indulge in such populist measures even going to the extent of driving the country down the fiscal drain. Fiscal deprivation just adds on to the long list of pitfalls of the UPA government including corruption, apathy, indecision and pseudo secularism. Its time for the people of India to fight back. Otherwise its the middle class and the hapless poor who will pay the price for supporting such a corrupt and inept regime. Come 2014 and the people of this country will set all the wrongs right and usher in a true era of peace and secular growth with Namo.
