Before talking about anyone, We should talk about director G Ashok. He handled this script with all minute details. The last 40 minutes of the film is overwhelming. Hatsoff to G Ashok for coming up with different story line. Though the screenplay of the film is bit confusing in first half, The pre-climax and Climax of the film will give answers for all the doubts. Connection between God, Devil, belief and Science were handled with proper logic. Director Ashok became popular with 'Pilla Zamindhar', as the film is super hit.

Swathi Deekshith did supporting role in this film. Her character is limited but she made her presence. Jaya Prakash screen time is limited but He plays very important role in this film. Bollywood actor Arjan Bajwa given his best. He steals the show in flash back episode. Sindhu Tulani's role has been executed well. Her performance made climax of the film very interesting.
Saptagiri will tickle your funny bones with his typical dialogues. Other actors did as required.
Cinematography is Just OK, The foreign location shoot looks very natural. The flash-back tint of the film and background locations are very good. Music is biggest draw back in this film. Songs and background music could have been better. Editing could have been better. Few scenes can be chopped in first half. Production values are high and lot of money spent while making the film. Screenplay is weak in first half but overwhelming in second half.
Chitrangada is very good film with different concept. A better execution could mint more money at box office. It's a much needed film in Tollywood,as the film is made with different typical concept and Audience are accepting new concept film.
On the whole, Watch Chitrangada and welcome new concept films in Tollywood. Have patience in first half and you will be thrilled towards climax.
