It is rarity of movies like this one which is surely a welcome relief from Tollywood which is filled with mindless masala movies in which heroes are larger than the wafer thin story lines. Rana Daggubati presenting it raised my curiosity.
This one is a gem of a movie which is presented in realistic way right from the start. The movie has 4 different age-groups love stories set in the back drop of a small town called Kancharapalem in Vishakhapatnam which are linked wonderfully towards the end. The world maybe much advanced, but many parts of India is still divided by casteism. This theme finds its place in two of the love stories which tug at one’s heartstrings.
I love anthologies in movies and this one reminded me Chandamama Kathalu. C/O Kancharapalem takes its own sweet time to establish its characters which makes it boring at times. However, if you stay till the end then you will surely appreciate its uniqueness and the way the love stories are concluded and even linked.
The layered characters offer tremendous repeat value. Especially, the teenage daughter who plays the cupid in her mother’s love story is adorable. I would like to see this one again sometime later.
My rating is 4/5. Highly recommended for those who seek something different.
