16 Days Movie Review—Big Time Dissapointment!

It is a rare moment in cinema history when a small tiny movie just because of it’s posters attains the expectations levels and creates the buzz worthy of a blockbuster release. The movie in point is 16 days starring Charmme whose sizzling without-clothes-on-the-bed posters have created a constant buzz on the web. Everyday I have surfers searching for charmi or hot charmi pics from 16 days. Charmi is a box-office princess of her own with super hit solo off beat projects like Anukokunda Oka Roju, Mantra. The wait for 16 days was long–nearly 8 months since the first time it’s posters were released. At the end of it, the film is damp squib and whats more you feel cheated for there is nothing Charmi has to offer; acting or otherwise!

The story is totally crazy with no justification. Two dons (we’ll call them A and B here) are warring with each other (don’t ask why) and at one point B kills A’s son. By the way, these two dons are neighbors, but neither dares to step out side their houses since years for fear of assasination. Then don A swears that in the next 16 days, before the final rites for his son’s death are performed he will kill B’s son as well. B succeeds in killing all the hired experts or assasination consultants A is hiring. In a case of mistaken identity, A’s men drag along our hero Gurumurthy to pull his tooth out as they mistake him for one of their faulty debtors. Gurumurthy (Aravind), who later is reffere to as cockroach perhaps because of his appearence, over hears A’s conversation and suggest to him a plan. The plan is about using 80% mind and 20% sentiment to kill the villian and sugests that this is the reason why the West is developed because they use less sentiment. How Dumb. A is thrilled and assigns Gurumurthy do his work. So far it is ok (mind you nothing of Charmi so far), but from this point till the end the film is one big headache.

Gurumurthy is a cry baby through the film going from one camp to the other begging and pleading for his life and his graduation certificates. Then there is Charmi who works for a mineral water company putting ad tags on the door knobs of houses. She has a fetish of staying the night over at the house that is empty; she figures this out if the tag is intact. Charmi delivers what is easily one of the worst ever performance in cinema history. Totally irritating and if by chance you are having indegistion you will throw up in the theater! Each time she appears she is imitating an actor. They only person she does well and managed to get the crowd clapping is for PowerStar Pawan Kalyan. So Angel (Charmi the orphan) meets Gurumurthy and she you’re not quite sure what the point is. Sometimes she helps him by drawing Rs. 60,000 from ATMs and sometime she telling him to enjoy as he is anyway going to die after 16 days. In one such absolutely senseless episodes she gets married to him. Towards the end, Gurumurthy kills all the villians because he is pissed off with them—pissed off because they tore his graduation certificates and asked to send his wife over to them. So ends this nonsenscial drama.

The posters that tempted you to the theater does not show up in motion picture. Was it cut by the censor? I dunno. The kiss scene also is just a second and is hardly there. On it’s second day for it’s second show, the theater was not full. After seeing Charmi in this film, you will forget she was the glam doll of Mantra rocking away to that hip hop number. The film is actually based on the lead actor and he does a fine job, but the script makes his characterization irritating as it does not grow up. A majority of the film is only sadism: the goons harassing Gurumurthy and the guy crying and pleading for his certificates. The film is rubbish and will probably play in theaters for 1 + 6 = 7 days.
