Chunkzz review: Lowbrow comedy
Filled with double meaning dialogues and is sexist
Monday 7 August 2017
Balu Varghese, Honey Rose, Dharmajan
Just like his debut venture Happy Wedding, director Omar has set the initial portions of his new offering Chunkzz in an engineering college campus.
Now, this is the kind of self-financing college, where the students are dreaming only about booze and sex. Anyone female is just a piece of flesh that is meant to seduce. And from the teachers to the students, the women here are all happy playing eye candy in front of hungry eyed men.
If these are the ingredients that you look for in an entertainer, this one could have fine moments for you.

Let’s make this clear. There is absolutely no problem about a sex comedy. But the problem here is that this one hasn’t been attempted as one. Instead this has been tagged as “fun”. But the problem is that most of the fun is in bad taste, is offensive and has been lazily picturized.
Romario (Balu Varghese) and his gang of Mechanical Engineering students fool around chasing girls. Their wait for a “Mech-rani” (the queen of Mechanical Engineering branch, where the class is almost entirely reserved for boys) becomes fruitful, when Riya aka Pinky (Honey Rose) joins the campus. She is sexy and is quite a tomboy, bold enough to go for a trip to Goa with Romario, who incidentally is her childhood friend.
Of course, no point in looking for logic or a credible storyline here and the whole film has been done as a string of comic episodes. The whole idea is to tickle the funny bone by any means.
Balu Varghese repeats his signature style once again. Dharmajan scores with his one liners. Ganapathy and Visakh of Anandam fame has some moments of glory here and there. Honey Rose has to look glamorous and that she does with confidence.
Chunkzz is filled with double meaning dialogues and is sexist to the core. If your idea of comedy is on those lines, buy a ticket straight away.
