Chekka Chivantha Vaanam has an outfit cast and group that incorporates any semblance of Arvind Swami, STR, Vijay Sethupathi, Arun Vijay, Jyothika, Aishwarya Rajesh, Aditi Rao Hydari, Dayana Erappa, Prakash Raj, Jaya Sudha and numerous others. Santosh Sivan catches, while Sreekar Prasad cuts and AR Rahman takes control of the music division.
After the demise of Senapathy (Prakash Raj), a maturing criminal, his children Varadan (Arvind Swami), Thyagu (Arun Vijay), and Ethi (STR), battle it out for his place, with the assistance of Police Officer Rasool (Vijay Sethupathi).
Journalists Mani Ratnam and Siva Ananth squander no time in building up the characters. Ideal from the word go, the dramatization starts and the entire star cast is presented perfectly, with very little publicity. An ever-upset Varadan, an unpretentious yet snazzy Thyagu, and a self-important Ethi are brought into the photo.
The principal half goes at a recreation pace and the contention, which is very self-evident, takes finish shape and gives a major stage to high measures of slaughter in the second half. As far back as Mani Ratnam made his introduction, he has been taking care of stories which manage complex connections, something that more often than not has love as the base. This time, Mani has taken an alternate digression and manages a criminal family.
The connection between the relatives, specifically the dad and the children is featured.

Arvind Swami as Varadan is basically wonderful. His easy execution characterizes his character extremely well. Arun Vijay, recently, has demonstrated his acting ability and CCV is no less. So much swag, conveyed easily. Prakash Raj, however it is a minor job as far as screen time, does his bit well. Jaya Sudha and Jyothika have abundant degree for execution, and their involvement in such jobs proves to be useful. Their exhibitions merit commend. Be that as it may, the screen time for Aishwarya Rajesh, Aditi Rao Hydari and Dayana Erappa is very less.
Without question, the show stealers are STR and Vijay Sethupathi. Their characters have been carved so as to not have to pressurize themselves to convey their best. By and by, they demonstrate that they are stunning entertainers. CCV will definitely be a milestone in STR’s vocation. VJS conveys some gentility to a story that dominatingly manages life and passing.
The trailer removes have swung to be a downside as a few shots utilized are uncovering and they decrease the fervor factor while watching the film. In spite of the fact that there is effective composition, there was a consistency factor that may put on a show of being a worry. Aishwarya Rajesh plays a Srilankan Tamil young lady, however it could have been additionally intriguing to know why! The interlude square as well, is played with feelings, and doesn’t turn out as a high point.
Each star has his mass minutes that will be commended by the fans! More or less, don’t miss the skies turning totally red as Mani Ratnam manages an exceptional family competition dramatization.
