Cheppukondi Chooddaam is a suspense drama without the least bit of suspense.
You come to know who the killer is in the first couple of scenes itself. Director
K Ranga Rao then goes on to introduce unnecessary characters and makes life
complicated for himself and for all his viewers.
Mahesh (Suman) and Amarnath (Achyut) are computer businessmen and rivals. Mahesh's
sister falls in love with Amarnath's son. But Mahesh, knowing fully well Amarnath's
bloody past, refuses the proposal. But the sister sheds tears copiously enough
to make him finally concede defeat. He agrees to the marriage in style by bringing
his prospective brother-in-law to his house. And allegedly drops him back. But
the same night he is arrested for having kidnapped his prospective brother-in-law
and burning him to death. So our computer giant lands in prison, and swears
vengeance on his enemies.
He escapes from prison with the help of the inspector of police Aishwarya (Mani
Chandana). But instead of taking on his rivals straightaway, he goes to meet
a guy called Chinna (Chinna) for some strange reason. But Chinna is murdered
by someone, and trying to save him, four college guys Sri Harsha, Ganesh, Tirupati
Prakash and Naveen end up with his dead body. Not knowing what to do, they dump
it in a valley. And the movie goes on and on without a semblance of interest
Suman has put on a lot of weight and finds it difficult to perform the few stunts
that he has in the movie. Manichandana is unnecessary, and the four guys who
are supposed to fill in the comedy part dish out the same fare that they have
been doing in all their previous films. When the film finally reaches its denouement,
there is neither comedy nor suspense, and there aren't even any sentimental
scenes worth remembering. A dud of a film that you can do without.
