Ravi Teja who has his own business leads happy life with his family. Besides taking extra care about his family, Ravi Teja also motivates his office staff to love their family members. The family emotions shown in a song were monotonous. Ravi Teja and Raashi Khanna’s Pelli Choopulu episode was hilarious. However, the romantic track appears boring at one point of time. The fighting in mechanic shed elevated hero’s character. Then, Ravi Teja chasing a murder in pre-climax hints that flashback will be narrated in second half. Coming to second half, you will hardly find any pleasing elements except for Ravi Teja’s characterization as angry and dedicated cop. Ravi Teja and Seerat Kapoor’s episodes bring double headache.
Ravi Teja excelled with his massive show. He was good as a common man in first half and has shown his acting abilities in second half as an angry police man. His age is visible in few episodes, although he tried to cover it up with beard. Raashi Khanna was stunning. She enticed as an aerobic teacher. Seerat Kapoor looked ordinary as Ravi Teja’s love interest. Although she oozed enough of oomph in a song, she has got nothing to perform in the film. Freddy Daruwala is just okay as a young politician and a criminal. Murali Sharma was good and Jayaprakash was regular. Vennela Kishore and Satyam Rajesh were decent. Other artists played their parts decently.
Vakkantham Vamsi penned a routine story. Dialogues penned by Keshav were also mediocre. Vikram Sirikonda must be blamed for taking zero care about script. On the other hand, his dealing of key episodes like rally episode was pathetic. Cinematography of Richard Prasad and Chota K Naidu was decent. Music by Pritam and batch was middling. Editor Gautham Raju forgot to scissor many boring scenes. Production values of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Productions are moderate. They indeed spent money at wrong places.
Touch Chesi Chudu is a boring and routine cinema with zero uniqueness. The movie may not enthrall any section of audiences.
