Director Kalyan Krishna's Telugu movie "Soggade Chinni Nayana" (SCN) starring Akkineni Nagarjuna, Ramya Krishna and Lavanya Tripathi, has received positive reviews from the audiences.
"Soggade Chinni Nayana" is a romantic action movie with all the elements to woo the family audience. P Ram Mohan has penned the story for the film that is about a father, who returns as a soul to help his son. The movie has a ghost angle, but it does not have scary or horror elements. The title of the movie is inspired by KV Mahadevan-composed song from ANR's 1966 movie.
The audiences say "Soggade Chinni Nayana" is socio fantasy film, which features Akkineni Nagarjuna in dual roles such as grandfather and grandson. The first half of the film is entertaining and the humour created by Nagarjuna's dual role is good. But the second half is routine, predictable and dragging. The climx of the movie is average.
The viewers add Nagarjuna has done brilliant acting for both the roles and his performance is the main highlight of the movie. His chemistry with Ramya Krishna and Lavanya is a treat to watch on screen. Anup Rubens' music and PS Vinod's beautiful picturisation of rural backdrop are other big attraction of the film. The predictable plot and slow narration in the second half are the big drawbacks of the movie.
We bring you the viewers' verdict on the film shared on Twitter. Here is the live update of "Soggade Chinni Nayana" movie review by audience:

#SoggadeChinniNayana feel-good family entertainer. #Nagarjuna's double treat. Nice #Sankranthi watch.
#SoggadeChinniNayana (Till Interval) - A decent attempt better than many big budget duds.. A perfect festival gift for @iamnagarjuna fans. #SoggadeChinniNayana - Second half DIPS a bit, but overall a simple feel-good entertainer to watch out this festive season.

Done with first half... Very good.. No dull moment... #SoggadeChinniNayana RamyaKrishna garu and Nagarjuna have nailed it.. Lavanya and Nagarjuna Supported them well.. Nag fighting with comment batch in second half is racha rambola.. Only drag is story has been rushed in second half.. Should have taken the story line a bit ahead Nagarjuna as Bangar Raju RamyaKrishna Songs Screenplay Lavanya are positives -ves Fragile story line Second half drag
#SoggadeChinniNayana Is a Very Clean Family Entertainer That Has The Potential to Entertain All Sections Of Audience This Festive Season
