After a brief hiatus, Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja sprung back to action with Raja The Great last year, announcing his arrival once again into the forte with the super hit flick. Touch Chesi Chudu was scheduled as a Sankranti release but then was eventually postponed making a good solo release for the flick.
Is the movie packaged with sufficient content to be qualified as a good flick? Does it entertain the audience? Let's check out more about the movie.

Upside & Downside
Ravi Teja's Energetic Performance
Routine & Mediocre Story
Other Post Production Works
Ravi Teja is at his usual best. Be it his energy, comical rendition of dialogues, mass appeal or the ease in delivering punch lines, Ravi Teja stands testimonial for the title, Mass Maharaja which is honoured to him.
Both Raashi and Seerat are good and indeed more looked out for enthralling the masses by oozing glam appeal on screen with skimpy outfits.
Freddy looks tough and intimidating initially but loses out his sheen as the movie proceeds due to the weak and cliché characterization.
Rajesh as Ravi Teja's friend has done a good job while Jaya Prakash, Vennela Kishore and Suhasini are adequate.
Music is one let down as the songs don't linger for long. Background Music by Mani Sharma is better than the music track, but not up to the legendary music director's standards.
Editing is patchy and looks to be done in a hurried manner while Chota K Naidu's cinematography is a good take-away. Few frames are eye-catching and especially, the shots involving Raashi and Seerat are eye candy.
Debutant Vikram Sirikonda's dream of painting a mass genre celluloid may not deliver the expected fruitful result for the director as the movie falls flat due to its age old story and not so palpable screenplay.
Give it a shot only for Ravi Teja's antics and performance as the movie stands for his brand of entertainment. Definitely not a must watch flick.
