The Bungalow is for sale and unexpectedly the workers who come for cleaning it start disappearing one by one. No one will get to know about what’s going on.
What is the story of Chandrakala?
Will the ghost leave Maaya family?
Whom did Chandrakala entrap?
The answers for the above questions form the rest of the story.
Andrea Jermiah is the lead actress of the film who has done a very good job with her performance and especially she is outstanding in the second half.
Hansika Motwani has got a very limited role and she plays a village girl role. She is good performer and did justice for the role throughout the film.
Sunder.C is just okay as he fails to show proper expressions and he did not show the variations of his role. He needs to be improved.
Raai Laxmi is limited to a glamorous role and she is good as per her limits.
Kota Srinivas Rao performed very well and he has come up with a good show using all his experience especially in the climax.
The comedy by Santhanam, Kovai Sarala failed to impress.
The rest of the bunch of actors make their presence felt.

Chandrakala From Reviewer View :
Chandrakala is the official remake of Tamil film Aranmanai. First things first, the film is a horror comedy. The film director Sunder.C introduced the ghost soon after the film begins and he did not waste time. But what was missing is the slow fear which has to be generated in the audience. Though it is a horror film, the director should bring the horror feel initially to take the audience deeper into the story.
The comedy in the film is artificial. It failed to work. The director has used so many references to bring out the comedy. The comedy by Santhanam, Kovai Sarala and Manobala is not good. The movie has good casting but the director failed to bring out some good and appreciable performances and also he failed to write the script in an interesting way.
The film story is routine where a family tries to get into an old bungalow and a ghost is already entrapped there and it tries to struggle the members who enter. We have seen the story in so many films till date and the director tried to deal an old story with new treatment but ended up in giving the old execution which is not properly baked.
The cinematography by Senthil is neat and he needs special mention. The duration of the film could have been chopped and the music is not good. The songs of the film disturb the flow of this movie. The BGM is composed with loud sounds and it is not impressive. Finally, the director has failed to entertain us with a horror comedy film and the final product is not up to the expectations.
ANDHRAVILAS single line Verdict :
Chandrakala is not worthy of your ticket price. Skip it and go for the other releases.
Rating : 2/5
