Director Mani Ratnam’s Telugu movie Cheliya, (also spelt as Cheliyaa,) starring Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari, is the dubbed version of the much talked about Tamil film Kaatru Veliyidai.
Varun (Karthi) is a military pilot, who is held as a prisoner of war. He is very strong and softhearted but is very unsure inside. Being in prison, he recalls his romance with a local doctor (Aditi Rao Hydari,) who is vulnerable and fragile on the outside and determined and headstrong inside. How these two people with opposite characters gel forms the crux of the story.
Karthi as military guy gave his ever best as an artist. Aditi Rao Hyderi has done equity to her part as an experienced artist, and the chemistry between her and Karthi worked out well and remains a highlight in the movie. Additionally, K.P.A.C. Lalitha, Shraddha Srinath, Rukmini Vijayakumar, R.J. Balaji as supporting characters did their best.
