Chammak Challo - Movie Reviews

The film had the potential to be an engaging love story, but even before it could leave an impact, the slackening narrative drains every last ounce of patience from the inside of the audiences.
NowRunning
‘Chammak Challo’ is a very slow and poorly executed romantic drama. Catherine Tresa’s glamour and Shayaji Shinde’s energy levels salvage the film marginally. On the whole, this film is yet another disappointment from Neelakanta.

Neelakantha this time failed to make any impact on viewers which his script or storyline. He failed as director and screenplay tested the patience of the people.

Neelekanta is called as the king of script writing and a master in screenplay, that has always been his strength and the other plus is, the subjects he chooses is quite interesting dealing with human psychology and relationships
Greatandhra
Though the movie is a love story, there is no speed like in other love stories. The scenes in between Varun Sandesh and Sanchita are just bores any one instead of entertaining. The story runs in a slow pace.

Neelakanta usually changes any small story with his expertise, here he does nothing to a weak script He chose the universal subject of love that finds acceptance by all, made it neat and clean but what’s sad is that the love story ends as a kitsch of all romantic films
Telugu Mirchi
A film with few cute moments and that works only in bits and pieces, CC could have been helped by better songs, an imaginative narrative and less at least twenty minutes of duration.
India Glitz
Frankly speaking, the beautiful cum broad smile of Sanchita and hot sex appeal of Catherine along with few funny moments of Vennela Kishore as Software Rajesh are the only savior for this 2+ hours of boring narration.
Cinejosh
High quality director like Neelekanta the expectation is high on this movie but this he failed to make any impact on viewers which his script or storyline.
Searchandhra
There are too many glaring holes in the movie and no amount of M-seal can patch things up. The film works on the premise of giving you a new love story but denies itself that very chance through poor direction, music and acting.
Andhravilas
Coming from a high caliber director like Neelekanta the expectation is high on this movie but then it doesn’t really have that kind of material to be entertained.
FilmCircle
Saddest part of the entire story is UTV had bagged the rights of Band Baaja Baraat and it was announced that Nani will be playing the lead role in the Telugu remake. And now about 80% of the movie is mercilessly lifted by Nandini Reddy.
Tollywoodandhra
Love stories work because of music, here the music is a big minus. Some songs look as if they have been shot by a cell phone, it lacks clarity. Editing was shoddy.

With USP's such as National award winner directing the film, introducing fresh faces to Telugu industry [Sanchita, Catherine], and with a tag line of 'Love ki logic ledhu'
apherald
Neelekanta shifts genres to make a contemporary love story in Chamak Challo. Set against a college backdrop, it touches on how today’s youngsters look at love.
Rediff Movies
The story was more or less looked similar to a French movie named The Dreamers. Director tried to made the movie a classic but since it's been targetted at the commercial audience
Andhrawishesh
Chammak Challo is a film with dead slow narration & uninteresting love story and did not match to standards of director 'Neelakanta'
TollyArea
National Award winning director G Neelakanta Reddy's last venture Virodhi was a critically acclaimed and also bagged a few awards, but it did an average business at the Box Office.

There are too many glaring holes in the movie and no amount of M-seal can patch things up. The film works on the premise of giving you a ‘new love story’ but denies itself that very chance through poor direction, music and acting.
The Hindu
Not as jazzy as the title
Great Andhra
Chammak Challo is Neelakanta’s movie. So people have many expectations. The movie is not up to the mark. The first half of the movie is very much boring
SupergoodMovies
Overall, G Neelakanta Reddy wants to offer a different love story through Chammak Challo, but he has failed in executing the story on screen. Instead of entertaining, the director bores and irritates audience. Watch it on your own risk.
AndhraBuzz
Filmmaker G. Neelakanta, a National award winner disappoints big time in his latest Telugu romantic-drama titled "Chamak Challo". It is that kind of film, which will make you breathe a sigh of relief as the credits roll down.
Telugu.way2movies
It's another "realistic romantic caper" that cracks jokes about the predominant cliches of romance in Telugu cinema, despite having nothing new to offer
