Chhatrapati movie review: Srinivasa Bellamkonda’s Hindi debut is all action and no masala

Chhatrapati. (pic credit: imdb)

‘Chhatrapati’ seems like disjointed pieces of a puzzle, it is everywhere. The weightage given to the action sequences gave an average result, but is it enough for a two-hour film? KV Vijayendra Prasad’s writing breaks down and VV Vinayak’s direction also could not save it.

Chhatrapati , Director: VV Vinayak

Cast: Sai Srinivas Bellamkonda, Nushrat Bharucha, Bhagyashree, Sahil Vaid and Karan Singh Chhabra.

Duration: 123 minutes

SHIVAAAAAAAAAA is back on the big screen, but this time in a masala film. He is in love again, but here with his mother. He has powers again, but is limited to clenching his jaw and wrists.

Shiva (Belamkonda Srinivas) tries to find his stepmother Parvathy (Bhagyashree), who was separated from her stepbrother Ashok (Karan Singh Chhabra) on errands in Pakistan. Now a refugee in Gujarat, a grown-up Shiva seeks Sapna’s (Nushrat Bharucha) help in locating his family, while protecting fellow refugees from rival brothers Bhairav ​​(Freddy Daruwala) and Bhavani (Sharad Kelkar). After winning their battle, Shiva’s fellow refugees give him the title of ‘Chhatrapati’, only for his jealous half-brother, who along with Bhavani, has been planning his death behind his back. Of course, they don’t work and Shiva single-handedly kills each of his enemies. After several dramatic subplots and half a dozen songs, Shiva is reunited with his mother and half-brother. Happy Ending 🙂

Chhatrapati There is a lot of action and no spice. The origin story of Srinivas’ character is so loosely written, that he only manages to fit well into his action-hero gear. For acting there is only a zoom in the eyes, clenching of the jaws and wrists. “Everyone lives for himself, those who live for others, use says Chhatpati,” Bhagyashree sums up in the beginning. Only one of her two boys becomes the real figure’s manly protector. Want to punch the air to guess who it was?

Chhatrapati It’s like the broken pieces of a puzzle being put together are all over the place. The weightage given to the action sequences gave an average result, but is it enough for a two-hour film? KV Vijayendra Prasad’s writing breaks down and VV Vinayak’s direction also could not save it.

Bhagyashree is still in its 90s era, over the top and a bit unnecessary. It may have worked then, but it needs drastic changes to be believable today. Chhabra’s performance is weak and inconsistent. Whenever Bharucha comes on screen, you can expect a song in the next 5 minutes, or even the next second. Speed ​​of God Kelkar shines here with the material given to him.

ChhatrapatiHad it released before 2010 the response could have been very different. But after a decade and a global pandemic, it has failed to make an impact.
