Miserable camera work. Agonizing editing. Flummerous screenplay and artificial dialogues. All these make up to the creation of the DDLJ- MOHABBATIEN copy-paste “CHIROSATHI”. Right from the opening credits till the closing titles, This Haranath Chakraborty dud is an absolute disaster. The basic nuances of film making haven’t been fulfilled. Throughout the film we discover ample evidences of reckless film making. Specially B. Prabhakar’s camera and Manotosh Chakraborty’s screenplay will haunt the movie buff for ages to come. The story is an entire copy of DDLJ. In 1995, when DDLJ was made, it was an extremely well made and commercially viable product. In “Chirosathi” what one discovers is an absolute mockery of film logic. Even if Haranath Chakraborty and his associates decided to make a remake of the 1995 blockbuster, they should have been more (Literally much more) honest towards the screenplay. They should have been more honest towards the building up of the primary characters. They should have been more active in “not stealing” music from the tracks of Abbas-Mustan’s “Ajnabee” (2001). Haranath Chakraborty defies every “should” and in return the rule of law defies him. He makes an obnoxious celluloid cringe where none of the characters show “natural camaraderie” amongst themselves or with the screen. The whole film trying to be a copy, evolved as an “artificial” agony. Not a single sequence in the film is natural or arresting. It seems that every character is chanting out hymns from the bible, rather than emoting characters of flesh and blood. The crux is “Chirosathi” is unsubstantial. In days of doom, when beastly humans beings are hammering us below the belt and making us bear the burnt, these outrageous inconsequential love sagas are of no relevance. This film seeks to diversify masses from the qualms and disasters of contemporary civil society. But that’s unethical and may be undemocratic too. This new trend in Tollywood, of making “artificial love stories” won’t meet positive pathos in the near future. Audiences have brains.
Note: Hiran sadly doesn’t know how to coordinate his limbs and hands in parity with the camera. Now whether he acts well or not is a different agenda !
