All credits go to director Ar Gandhi Krishna for coming out with the movie Chellamae which is not only racy but also entertaining. Even without any big names in the cast, Gandhi Krishna has succeeded in weaving a magic on screen. Actress Reema Sen, around whom the entire movie revolves, steals the limelight with a powerful portrayal.
The film is about a possessive youth who plays spoilsport between a husband and wife. Actress Reema Sen and newcomer Vishal play the part of the couple while Boys-fame Bharath is cast as the possessive youth.
Reema Sen showers love and affection on Bharath, her neighbor, since his childhood. Bharath happens to be the only son of a rich business tycoon Girish Karnad, who loses his mother at a young age. Reema treats Bharath as her younger brother and spends all her time with him.
Meanwhile, Vishal , an income tax officer, turns up at Girish Karnad's house for an IT raid and happens to meet Reema there. They eventually fall in love and after a series of incidents they gets wed locked. They settle in Goa then. The trouble begins when Bharath reaches Goa in search of Reema. He manages to kidnap Reema and bring her to Chennai.The reasons for Bharath's obsession and possessiveness towards Reema unfolds as the movie progresses.
Vishal who comes back to Goa finds the house deserted. The next door neighbor tells him that Reema eloped with Bharat. He then begins to track her down and finds that the duo had left for Chennai. Vishal reaches Chennai but is unable to tell his parents the real plight. With the help of Vivek his collegue he tries to trace her out. A chance look at the video of their marriage throws light on Bharat's hatred towards Vishal. Now Vishal is convinced that Reema did not go on her own will. He confronts Bharat's father but he is of no help. Finally he traces out the location of Bharat's hideout. Reema on the other hand pleads with Bharat to release her. She explains that she cannot be his wife and can see him only as a son or a kid brother. The plea falls on deaf ears. In a racy climax on high seas the three protagonists fight it out and Reema hits Bharat with the boat oars. He plunges in to the sea in an unconscious condition taking along Reema too. Vishal comes at the nick of the time and saves her. Even though she had killed him she is filled with remorse.
Gandhikrishna has woven a fine screenplay without any dull moments. Reema scores with her extraordinary performance. She at times is the sizzling hot babe and the next moment the vulnerable soft lady filled with emotions. This is will be a landmark film for her.
Debutante Vishal is apt for the role and Bharat of Boys and 4 Students shows his versatility as the obsessed lover but yet exuding innocence.
Technically the film is excellent with K V Anand's camera wizardry in full force and Harris Jayraj's music providing the backup.
