Raju (Subba Rao) an attender remains unmarried even at the age of 49. Kancharapalem villagers suspect something wrong with his behavior as he spends most of the time with men.

He moves closely with his Oriya speaking lady boss Radha (Radha Bessy), a 42 year old widower with 20 year old daughter. Even as they move friendly, there are subplots in the form of school children Sundaram, Sunitha getting attracted, liquor shop worker Gaddam falling in love with Sameera who covers her face most of the time and Joseph (Karthik Ratnam) falling in love with Bharghavi.

To find out the connection between all these characters and the twists and turns, enjoy C/O Kancharapalem on silver screen.


All the actors came with realistic and natural performances showing the right kind of expressions and emotions. They should be commended for their performances despite being newcomers.

With their performances like a seasoned players, they put the so called stars to shame. They attracted with their expressions and with their screen presence, kept the movie lovers glued to the screens throughout the film.


Sweekar Agasthi attracted with his music and songs which are situational and realistic. Few of the song's lyrics attracted with hilarious lyrics. He elevated the scenes with his background score. Editing could have been better as there are many drags in the film which tested the patience of the viewers.

Cinematography of Aditya Javvadi & Varun Chaphekar captured the natural and scenic locations in a beautiful manner taking the film to another level. Director Venkatesh Maha could have given more importance to the lead role and showcased his emotions by doing away with the length of other characters and also few out of sync comedy scenes.  Production values are good.

Minus Points

Lack of elevation of the lead role


GR.Venkatesh maha on debut came with a natural and realistic story. The film right from the start to finish progresses at the same tempo. He highlighted the expressions, emotions and feelings of the people in the village of Kancherapalem and the narration connect chords with everyone.

The first half ends with a good interval bang and the story continues in the same vein in the second half. At times however, the pace dips down and one gets a feeling that the story is not moving any further.

However in the end, director surprises with the shocking twists and turns. The way he interlinked all the characters in the climax leaves all stunned. He attracted with his story, screenplay and direction. However at times he has taken many cinematic liberties and in doing so, he weakened the characters of many. Some of the dialogues are misogynistic and in trying to elevate the heroism, he brought down the morals and values of the other characters.

The film will not appeal to B,C centres and multiplex movie lovers may like it,if they can bear the slow pace and lack of entertainment elements in the film.

Final Talk

C/O Kancharapalem attracts with natural flair but lacks commercial power.
