Energetic hero Ram, has been lying low from quite some time now. He is back after a long gap with a family entertainer Pandaga Chesko. Directed by Gopichand Malineni, this film has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.

Story:
Karthik (Ram) runs his own company in Portugal. One day he is tracked by Weekend Venkata Rao (Brahmanandam) who wants him to marry Anushka (Sonal Chauhan) another business woman who is in a rush to find a groom so that she does not miss out on her Rs 3000 crore property. Well, meanwhile Karthik goes to India and ends up meeting Divya (Rakul Preet Singh). The rest of the story tracks Karthik, Divya, Anushka and is about who gets who.

Performances:
Ram lives up to his title of energetic star with an energetic performance. He looks very handsome and suave in the role of a billionaire. His dances in few songs will enthrall his fans. Rakul Preeth Singh's character is inconsistent but she pulls it off somehow with her good looks. Sonal Chauhan is pretty impressive as the arrogant rich lady. Brahmanandam has an important role in the movie as weekend Venkata Rao. He is good as usual. Sampath Raj is alright. Sai Kumar delivers a balanced performance. MS Narayana comedy is targeted at the masses. Rao Ramesh, Pavitra Lokesh, Vennela Kishore and others are well cast. There are numerous actors in the film and everyone did their bit.

Technical Aspects:
Music by Thaman is not earth-shattering surely, but it has a couple of mass numbers. Cinematography and editing are alright. Screenplay is by Kona Venkat and Anil Ravipudi while story is by Veligonda Srinivas. Of course, the story follows the usual pattern like in many Telugu movies, but it has some interesting dialogues sprinkled all along.
Gopichand Malineni plays safe and does not move away from the formula.

Highlights:
Ram and Heroines
Few dialogues and Comedy

Drawbacks:
Routine story and screenplay

Analysis:
Pandaga Chesko will only give Ram a slight breather in his career. His energetic performance, glamour quotient and decent comedy are basic assets. This film is a clear mixture of all the hit flicks that you have seen in the past and does not excite you in terms of story or narration. Keeping the holiday season in mind, this film might attract decent crowds for its routine and safe formula. If you go in well prepared and forget the logics and predictable nature of the film, you might end up liking this routine comedy entertainer.

Verdict: Routine Festival
