Karthi who is well known to Telugu audience with the movies like ‘Awara’ and ‘Oopiri’ recently came up with ‘Chinababu’ which was a dubbed version.

- Karthi’s Performance
- Rajath Ravi Shankar’s Direction
- Story is not impressive
- Boring second half
- Slow narration
- Vel Raj Cinematography is excellent
- Harris Jayaraj Music could have been better
- Apt Production Values
It would be very disappointing to those who go with high expectations as it is a Karthi film. It is a good visual treat and will allure the nature lovers.
