Chakravarthy Review

First half of the film offers entertainment and Second half has powerful moments and emotionally charged scenes. Plus points of the film are Darshan's performance, good technical standards, great production values, Arjun Janya's songs and background music.

On the flipside, a properly made second half would have done wonders to the movie. Director Chintan shows a lot of promise. On a whole, Chakravarthy is a feast for fans and will be liked by masses.

On the trade front, Chakravarthy will be a huge hit with serious chances of breaking records. Go and watch it!

ಭೂಗತ ಲೋಕದ ಕಥೆಗಳನ್ನ ಈಗಾಗಲೇ ಅನೇಕ ಸಿನಿಮಾಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ನೋಡಿರುವ ಜನರಿಗೆ 'ಚಕ್ರವರ್ತಿ' ಚಿತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ ಅಂಡರ್ ವರ್ಲ್ಡ್ ಸ್ಟೋರಿ ಜೊತೆಗೆ ದೇಶಪ್ರೇಮ ಕೂಡ ಇದೆ. ಹೀಗಾಗಿ 'ಡಿ' ಬಾಸ್ ಫ್ಯಾನ್ಸ್ ಗೆ 'ಚಕ್ರವರ್ತಿ' ರಸದೌತಣ.

ಕ್ಲಾಸ್ ಮತ್ತು ಮಾಸ್ ಎಂಬ ಭೇದಭಾವ ಇಲ್ಲದೇ 'ಚಕ್ರವರ್ತಿ' ಚಿತ್ರವನ್ನ ಎಲ್ಲರೂ ಆರಾಮಾಗಿ ಕೂತು ನೋಡಬಹುದು. ರೌಡಿಸಂ ಕಥೆ ಆದರೂ, ಅತಿರೇಕ ಅಂತ ಎಲ್ಲೂ ಅನಿಸಲ್ಲ. ಕನ್ನಡ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳನ್ನ ಚಿತ್ರಮಂದಿರದಲ್ಲಿ ನೋಡಿ, ಪ್ರೋತ್ಸಾಹಿಸಿ.

Ultimately, CHAKRAVARTHY is a movie for all sectors of Audience. No Single Bloodshed scene in the movie. It’s a Classic attempt in showcasing the Bengaluru/International Underworld in a realistic manner to the maximum extent possible. Go, watch and enjoy this big canvas movie this weekend.

Chakravarthy is a perfect treat to all the challenging star fans. It is a Class Movie blended with Family Elements on Underworld Backdrop. A little confusing story makes its way to the theaters. The movie has much bigger thing to see which is Challenging Star Darshan’s acting while the antagonist is his real life brother Dinakar Thoogudeepa. Even his performance in the movie went decently according to the role.


One could have had a rather slick, edgy story that re-creates a partly fictionalized version of the Bengaluru underworld. Instead, the makers have fallen prey to some usual tricks adopted in commercial capers that dilute the second half. But, if you're the sort who wants a treat of masala moments on screen, this could be worth your visit to the screens.

This is one of the best films of Darshan's career. A very good film to get entertained. If you haven't booked your tickets yet, do it immediately.
