Team & Theme
Charlie Chaplin 2
In 2002, when ‘Charlie Chaplin’ was released, it emerged as one of the hit movies of the year by providing decent entertainment to the audience in an adult theme.
After 17 long years, ‘Charlie Chaplin 2’ has hit the screens. The similarities between the two movies are its core team (director Sakthi Chidambaram, Prabhu and Prabhu Deva) and core theme (story about conflict between couples).
Thiru (Prabhu Deva) works in a matrimonial company and successfully organises 99 weddings with help from his colleagues (Arvind Akash and Chandana Raj).
When he is about to venture into his 100th match making, his parents want him to get married. Soon, Thiru falls for Sara (Nikki Galrani), daughter of Ramakrishnan (Prabhu).
Sara too falls in love with Thiru and when everything seems to be going cool, enters Raja (Vivek), a friend of Thiru. He advices Thiru against marrying Sara and expresses suspicion over her character.
He also gives an evidence to support his claim. Following this, under the influence of alcohol, Thiru sends an abusive message to Sara which puts their marriage under trouble.
Meanwhile, another Sara (Adah Sharma) enters the scene adding more to the existing confusion. Is Thiru able to save his marriage or not forms the rest of ‘Charlie Chaplin 2’.
Prabhu Deva is in full form and his ageless face and expressions charm the audience. Prabhu too is good, while Nikki Galrani performs well besides adding to the glamour quotient.
Vivek Prasanna, Arvind Akash and Chandana Raj among others have chipped in with good performance. Amresh Ganesh’s Chinna Machan song makes the theatre to dance, while Soundararajan’s cinematography is full of colours.
Though the second half lacks the conviction and content of the first half, it has its own moments and tickles our funny bones well in some scenes.
