Charlie Chaplin 2 is a 2019 Tamil comedy film directed by Shakthi Chidambaram. The film stars Prabhu Deva, Nikki Galrani and Prabhu in the lead roles. The film is a sequel to 2002 film Charlie Chaplin.
Prabhudheva and Nikki Galrani’s film partly works.
Thiru (Prabhudheva) owns a matrimony site and is proud of the fact that he has made matches for 99 weddings. When he is on the verge of setting up the 100th match, he falls in trouble. Thiru meets Sara (Nikki), falls in love with her and they are ready to take their relationship to the next level – marriage.
But, Raja (Vivek) asks Thiru to call off the wedding as he finds Sara suspicious and provides evidence to prove his point. Believing Raja, Thiru decides to call off the wedding after sending a text to Sara. Meanwhile, Saraa (Adah) enters the picture and takes the story forward. What will happen to Thiru’s marriage with Sara? Why is Saraa in the picture? These questions are answered in the second half of the film.
Prabhudheva has time and again proved that he is not just the best dancer but also a great actor. With Charlie Chaplin 2, he has proved yet again that he can shoulder the film on his own and hold the audience’s interest for long.
There’s a reason why Prabhu is a veteran and with his performance, he has tried to bring up the josh he had displayed in the prequel.
Even though Nikki Galrani and Adah Sharma have been brought in to provide the glamorous factor, they did their part quite well and managed to look not out of place.
Charlie Chaplin 2 is a sequel to a popular flick of the same name which released a decade and a half year ago. Director Shakti Chidambaram follows a similar plot with the sequel and retains Prabhudheva and Prabhu from the sequel.
Many wondered that the sequel might be too late to hit the screens and might not create an impact it should. However, Shakti Chidambaram’s screenplay should be applauded as he managed to pack in several comedy scenes that tickle our funny bones.
Vivek and Ravi Mariya helps the audience smile and laugh whenever the story goes haywire. Their presence is enough to spice up things in the movie.
Music by Amresh Ganesh could be quite loud at times, but they sure have some charm to keep you hooked to it. Kudos to the use of Chinna Machan song which became a chartbuster hit among the rest in the album
Charlie Chaplin 2 does not have a great story, but it makes us think whether the story has been simplified too much and not given the importance that it should have.
If the directed had concentrated more on the comedy sequences, Charlie Chaplin 2 could have been a winner. Though there are a few comedy sequences, we wish that there were more situational comedies, which was the best part of the prequel.
Charlie Chaplin 2 is of no match to its prequel but it is still a fun film to watch out for.
