Babji ( Aadi) works as a loan recovery agent in Hyderabad. Money lenders utilize his services to recover overdue money from their customers. Kavya ( Namita Pramod) is the sister of ruthless ACP ( Abhimanyu Singh). She tries to run away from home to avoid marriage proposals. At one such away attempt, Kavya bumps into Babji’s life.
Thinking that the pair is in love, ACP sends his police team to attack them. Feared by police, Babji and kavya runs into forest. Interval reveals that another team too chasing the pair.
In second half, Dora (Saikumar) makes an entry as Devarakonda village head in Telangana. Babji and Kavya who were on the run seeks shelter at Dora’s home. Rest of the story deals in establishing what is the relation between Dora and Babji, how they will be rescued from Police as well as another goons’ team.
Mediocrity is the name of the game in Chuttalabbayi. There is not even a single scene where we can see a spark or novelty in the direction. The film is mainly aimed at B, C centers’ audience. Prudhvi as Ego Reddy has provided some comic relief for audience. Posani Krishna Murali has been given lengthy and tedious role as second heroine’s father. Ali as Kidnap Kish enters at pre climax stage.
Cheap dialogues in this movie are mass oriented. Sai Kumar role should have been taken care more emotionally. Another irritating aspect is casting. Few character artistes are miserable especially the one played hero’s mother role. This movie is not a low budgeted one, producers have spent decent budget but don’t know why the casting is such poor quality
Talented actor Aadi should focus on picking right script and technicians for his upcoming movies.
- Aadi acted with a lot of ease and shown good skill in dances
- Few action blocks are composed well
- Namita Pramod looked fine in her role
- Prudhvi comedy to some extent will be a saving grace
- Songs are not good on screen
- Predictable and monotonous second half
- Comedy did not work out except for Prudhvi’s character
Chuttalabbayi has neither fresh content nor entertaining elements. The clichéd story and poor direction makes it a disappointing film. At B,C centers this film may work to some extent but rest everywhere it will be a disaster. Easily avoidable fare.
