The term love has no colour, taste or smell. Director Surya Kiran has tried to explain the colour of love. He has equated different emotions in love to various colours and brought out a film called chapter 6. He has put his best efforts to portray different emotions of youth in general and lovers in particular. However, the film appeared to be too confusing. The first half tests the patience of audience and by the time the audiences get clarity the film is almost done and the climax is hurriedly bundled.
Satyabhama (Kalyani) is an orphan and she loves her roommate. and treats as her sister. She commits suicide and reveals the reason in a letter. Satyabhama lodges a complaint and finds that a police inspector is trying to save the accused. She captures both the police officer Suryam and the accused and get both of them arrested. Fearing attack by goons, the hostel warden (Sakuntala) sends her away from Hyderabad to Vizag. After reaching Vizag, Stayabhama gets a job in a chit fund company. She gets a house at cheaper rent, as the owner (Kota Srinivasa Rao) could not get his son Satyamurthy (Haranath) married.
However, love generates between Satyabhama and Satyamurthy and they get married. At this juncture, the chit fund company turns the board and Satyabhama, who was the general manager caught in a fix. This time, Suryam is the sub-inspector of II Town Police Station of Vizag and he wants to take revenge against Satyabhama. Suryam summons the couple and tortures Satyamurthy for three days. during interrogation, Suryam bangs Satyabhama to the wall and she becomes unconscious. Fearing that she is dead, Suryam throws her body into the sea. but some fishermen rescue her. Will she get back her memory? what happend to her husband? what role does Bala and Sonia Suri play in the film? answer to all these questions should be seen on-screen.
Bala and Sonia Suri have done complete justice to their roles. Especially the romantic scenes in one of the songs would attract the front benchers. However, Bala should improve his acting skills and fine tune his voice. (Of course, it was the mistake of the artiste who dubbed his voice to the character). Even he should improve his body language too. Sonia Suri would fit the bill for romantic films. Kalyani played her role well and it is a surprise, how Haranath Policharla got a chance to play opposite her, when there are whole lot of heroes in Telugu film industry. Probably, Kalyani being the producer of the film, would have thought of minimising the expenditure, as Haranath agrees for a less remuneration. Other artistes including the late Rajan P Dev, Kadal Dandapani and others are appreciable. Comedy by Dharmavarapu Subrahmanyam, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Satyam Rajesh and MS Narayana is bearable.
Though the director boasted that each scene was shot in four angles by four different cameramen, the cinematography is not so great. Music by PC Sivan and Mohan Sitara is just average and not so impressive. Literary values in the songs are nil and most of the songs could not be understood by average audiences. Editing by Gauthamraju is haphazard and the different kind of narration, on the lines of Mani ratnam"s Yuva appears to be puzzling for some time. It is not known why the director tried to project his film as a new definition to love and how he imposed six different colours to different moods. Voice over by Jagapati Babu at different intervals is impressive.
The director Surya, who has given a big hit like Satyam has failed to dish out similar hits in his career thereafter. Kalyani, who married to him, has tried to give a facelift to his career by producing a film on her own. She has convinced Jagapati Babu, with whom she played heroine in films like Pedababu, to give voice over too. However, none of her efforts proved fruitful. Though the film was completed long ago, it could not see the light for many months and soon after its release everyone comes to know that there is nothing in it. Watch the film only to test your patience.
