After growing up he takes US temporary visa and enters the country. He meets Megha in Newyork but doesn’t know that she is Megha. How did love originate between the two? Why they break up? forms the story.
Nitin’s performance is astonishing. In the first half, Nitin’s struggle to get a visa, his comedy timing, his dance in Peddha Puli song, needs a mention. Megha Aakash is beautiful and performed well. The chemistry between two is good. Rao Ramesh, Naresh, Madanandan and Narra Srinivas have played important roles. After a long time actress, Lizzy appeared on the screen. The whole story revolves around Nithin and Megha.
Thaman’s music is impressive. PeddhaPuli has a mass beat and rest of the songs are melodious. The way the song ‘Gh..gh..meg’ picturised is impressive. Most of the story is filmed in the background of America. The cinematography is at a higher level. The director showed his work in the dialogue section. In many places, the Trivikram mark appears. Some scenes appear as if Trivikram has written them. ‘Chal Mohan Ranga’ would be much better if there was more entertainment in the second half and a strong story.
Although it’s a Trivikram written story. But there is no magic in the story. It’s a Simple story and the director added some fun scenes to it. Hero character portraying, his struggle to land in the USA, His attempts to get an H1B visa, brings out fun. The road trip of Ranga and Megha is also funny. In the first half, There is nothing much but the director has satisfied the audiences with the beauty of America, fine music, entertainment, and so on. However, he could not show the Strong reason for the parting of the lead characters.
The second half starts slowly. There is no story track until Ranga goes to Ooty looking for a Megha. The director again believes in his entertainment to connect with the audience. There is a long party episode before the climax sequences. This may be the scene that can be said as a highlight in the second half. Although there is no place for action episode it was embedded for a mass audience. The climax seems to be routine, but the director gave a perfect finish to the story.
