Peddayana (Balayya) runs a kids orphanage Ramalayam. A local wannabe politician, who has an evil's eye on the land, indulges in land-grabbing acts and warns Peddayana to leaves the premises. Ramu (Arjun Kalyan), who was raised in the Ramalayam, takes on the challenge of reclaiming the land possession.
: The filmmaker chose an interesting premise - Daanam Chese Vaadiki Swartham Undakudadu (A philanthropist must not have a selfish motto) miserably failed to translate the idea into cinema. In trying to package a commercially entertaining film with an underlying philosophical message, the movie ends up being neither entertaining nor profound.
Chinna Cinema is a predictable fare that has revenge plot - often seen in Telugu films and doesn't offer anything new. The element of surprise is missing from the narration and it meanders aimlessly. The movie is a huge let down as it ends up as an ordinary fare with no freshness in the content.
For a revenge drama, the protagonist's moves to counter goons should be meticulously etched but that was badly missing. Further, the story is illogical, sequences look uninteresting, and particularly the romantic track between Ramu and Janaki (Sumona Chanda) is dull and fails to make any impression. The continuity is missing in many sequences evident in the way songs and a few sequences appear on screen without any connectivity.
Songs do not engage audiences and presentation isn't too flash either. A lot more was expected from the film, given its philosophy but it end sup being another mundane movie. Chandru had an opportunity to make a total entertainer; instead he managed to dish out a non-starter with ill-conceived characters, and an age-old plot.
: Make sure you drop your standards to rock bottom to appreciate this bore fest.
