Director : Omar

Chunkzz begins in a college where Romario (Balu), Judas (Visakh), Atmaram (Dharmajan) and Riyas (Ganapathy) — three former students of the mechanical engineering department — roam around the campus and canteen, teasing girls and teachers as well as envying the boys who have girls as classmates. In their “boring” college life enters Romario’s childhood friend Riya (Honey) who, her father (Siddique) fears, is a lesbian. What follows is a long sequence of dirty jokes, an illogical story, loud songs and far-fetched twists, making Chunkzz an annoying watch. Clearly, Omar hasn’t got over Happy Wedding.

 

What begins as a campus story is neither a romantic entertainer nor a humorous movie. Every actor — from the lead ones to the family members of the hero and heroine — has more than enough vulgar dialogues that make one wonder how it got through the Censor Board. Chunkzz is the story of a bunch of youngsters who open their mouths to drink, smoke and utter sexist jokes.

There are humorous moments, especially during the umpteen references to old movies and famous BGMs, thereby lifting a huge burden off Gopi Sundar’s shoulders. The songs can be left behind in the theatres, as you walk out with a throbbing headache.

As the ‘Mech Rani’, Honey looks stylish and Balu repeats what he has been doing for long. The older chunks — actors Siddique and Lal — put up their best overreactions and push your tolerance limits. Dharmajan and Shammi Thilakan contribute to a few funny moments, whereas Visakh repeats his ‘Kuppi’ act from Aanandam. Ganapathy, like his character, puts up a poor show. The beautiful Mareena is wasted in a half-baked tomboyish role. 

Chunkzz may be a movie guys might enjoy with their friends. But girls, this might not be your cup of tea unless you have the guts to sit through embarrassing jokes. Forget taking your family; this is a strictly adult boys-only movie!
