Director Sooriya Kiran has had only one hit film - ‘Sathyam'. His other films in Telugu are ‘Rajubhai’, ‘Brahmastram’, ‘Dhana 51’ etc. This time he found a producer in his wife actress Kalyani, and made ‘Chapter 6’ with the tagline ‘Colors of Love’. He introduces few newcomers with this film, and makes them act along with his wife. Let’s see how the film fares.

What’s it about: Bharath (Bala) and Shilpa (Sonia), after few pranks and songs, enter into a relationship. Shilpa gets pregnant and plans to elope with Bharath, because she is afraid of her Police Commissioner father.

Satyabhama, an orphan and a single woman, brings out a police and drug-mafia nexus. She gets married to Satyamurthy, finds a job in a Chit Fund Company and life is going happy for her. But when her chit fund company is closed, she is called for a police enquiry. It is here she discovers that her case has gone to the same police officer, whom she had earlier gotten suspended.

With all these things in the background, on a day when Shilpa plans to elope, she is kidnapped. Who kidnaps her and why? What is the relationship between these two couples and how does it affect all of them, is what happens in rest of the film.

What is Good: Kalyani is a good actor and she brings all her charm to add honesty to her first production. Actors like Kota Srinivasa Rao, Dharmavarapu Subrahmaniam bring some funny moments, though they are wasted. The newcomers are ok, in their roles. The new heroine tried to add glamour to the film.

The twist in the tale is the best part of the story, accentuated by Jagapathi Babu’s voiceover. The idea that the movie should progress like different chapters in a book is appreciable, but it is exactly where the film fails to impress.

What is bad: The film is interspersed with many scenes that have been shot in a different language, but were later dubbed into Telugu.

By naming the film ‘Chapter 6’, the screenplay writer brings expectations from that particular chapter. However, the first two chapters take too long, with unnecessary twists and flashbacks in themselves to introduce the characters. Add to this few songs, at times at least expected situations make us yawn in our seats.

Though the hope for something interesting is always there, it just never happens. By the time chapter 4 and 5 are complete we just want to get over with the remaining part. When Chapter 6 finally occurs, it makes a futile attempt of giving a message about a social cause.

The timing of many songs (totally 8 songs) is seriously questionable. Also the tag line ‘colors of life’ needs explanation.

All through the film the screenplay writer keeps promising us that his film is a thriller, however the proceedings on screen keep telling us that it is a parody on Telugu cinema! The biggest laugh out loud scene comes at the climax, when a police officer offers a solution to police atrocities – video surveillance in police stations.

That should talk about the intelligence with which the film is made.

Technical Departments: : Visual effects at few points, though unnecessary, are nice. Otherwise the post production works look and sound very amateurish. Few songs are good to listen to, but they can hardly save this film.

Final Point: Chapter 6 hardly has anything interesting to be called a cinema. At almost two hours and forty five minutes, the film could have worked better as a Television serial with its unnecessary twists and too many irrelevant characters. Otherwise Chapter 6 is a forgettable chapter.
