Screenplay & Direction
Santosh P Jayakumar who had directed the Tamil version of the movie has captained the Telugu version as well. The director has packaged the film keeping in mind the youth audiences and they have plenty to take away in the film in the form of the audlt comedies, glamour quotient and the horror elements.
The writer-director has embedded all the elements required for the genre. It is in the second half of the film that the audiences are taken for a continues and non-stop entertainment ride with all the ingredients spicing up the proceedings. The writing in the first half could have been better with a little bit detailing. Some of the sequences are hurried through, which affects the narrative flow a bit. It also needs to be said that the horror factor could have been used in a better way and here the adult quotient was given more of an importance, which backfires at parts. The overdosage of the adult dialogues too spoils the show at parts.
Adith has done a convincing job as Chandu, the lead character. Mirchi Shiva does complete justice to the character. Nikki Tamboli has done a good job as the leading lady. Chandrika Ravi who was a part of the original version reprises her role in the Telugu version as well. Tagubothu Ramesh, Ragu Babu and Satyam Rajesh come up with good performances.
The songs of the film are decent but their placement does create some issues. The film indeed has rich production values and the cinematography complements the style of the film. Editing is fine but the first half could have been cut in a better way.

Chikati Gadilo Chithakotudu has all the ingredients to satiate the taste of the youth audiences. For the genre lovers, it would be a treat but still, it had the scope for improvement.
