Based on the reviews of Top Telugu movie sites and based on the public talk.
Chandrika is a Horror Thriller with a routine story Line . But glamour of the actress (Sree Mukhi and Kamna Jethmalani) and their acting skills saved the movie.

‘Chandrika’ reminds one of ‘Chandramukhi’ more often than it would have had it been directed by someone with no ‘Chandramukhi’ hangover. It comes with a wafer-think story line. A few novel scenes could have redeemed the film.

On the whole, Chandrika fails to impress the audience due to its routine story line and slow narration. The glamour quotient of the female leads is the only saving grace for this film which ends up as a fearless horror drama.
