"C/o Kancherapalem" is a film of various love tales set in four different generation people, in which the characteristic point is, all these stories are happening in a typical village called Kancherapalem (Although it is a part of the city Vizag, director portrayed it like a village). However, the main focus is on the drama between Raju, a 49 years old attender in a government office and Radha, a 42 years old middle-aged woman got transferred from Orissa to the same office. The protagonist Raju is unmarried due to some personal problems, because of which the whole village irritates him by continually asking about his wedding, and even mock him for being the bachelor. Radha is a widow with an adolescent daughter.
Not even a single artist is known to us, but the director got triumphed enough in obtaining the required performances out of them. Every actor has done their job well. However, it is Mr. Subba Rao, who played the character "Raju" got a meaty role, and he is quite natural in it. With the few initial shots, the director set the right mood in audiences' minds and prepares us to witness a beautiful village drama. Although it is a compilation of many love stories, the director did not talk only about love but also discussed the crooked, narrow mindset of a typical human being in our current society. The themes of the stories are not entirely new, and we saw many of them in several other films. But the presentation is quite interesting in setting up the tale. Every single shot is made in natural light, and the freshness has lasted throughout the movie. Camara work is authentic, and editing is the colossal strength of the film. Music is another department which needs a proper appreciation for an adequate background score, and village folk songs. One may feel that the initial portions of the film are dragged a bit, but I think it is necessary to establish the four stories. Once the stage is set, the director takes us into the village Kancherapalem and makes us involved in this lovely drama. As the film progresses towards the end, the stories turn quite engaging with many scary situations. Finally, the twist which glues everything together is an epic conclusion that one can give. Considering the budget constraints, and the challenges in making this flick, I'd say this is a fantastic output that a new director can get. Mr. Venkatesh Maha, I could not appreciate you enough for making this beautiful flick, and I thank all the members of the crew for this remarkable drama.
