I heard that Jandhyala changed the original story of Chantabbai novel written by Malladi.
He was asked by Chiranjeevi to make many changes to the novel to suit his character in the movie ...



what are those changes and did anyone read the original novel

yeah. original novel written by Malladi had almost no comedy.
The detective Pond (panduranga rao) was not chantabbai as shown in movie.
Original novel had the detective finding out chantabbai to be in jail and about to die in 1-2 days in a murder case.
detective choses not to reveal that he found chantabbai to gangadharam (jaggayya in movie), so that old man can die in peace hoping that atleast his son might be alive somewhere.


also Nischala's character( played by muccherla aruna in movie) has a love failure story and she remains unmarried, which is also a cause of concern for her father.

There are many such changes and interesting trivia about this movie and how jandhyala added so much comedy to it.
Will update soon

Chatabbai characters can be referenced to many Peter Sellers movies.
'Pandu Ranga Rao' alias 'James Pond' character seems to be picked from Sammo Hung's character in 'Wheels on Meals' which stars 'Jackie Chan'.

Please visit Mega Star trivia thread for more trivia..

Movie fared average because it had  no masala of regular chiru movies . Also his father role does not die in novel

okay..as mentioned in chiranjeevi movies trivia topic, father character doesn't die in original novel.
detective discovers that chantabbai grew up as an orphan and became a criminal.
He is convincted for murder case and will be hanged to death next day.
idi chepte musalodu depression tho pothadani, chantabbai dorakaledani cheptadu.
ekkado oka chota chantabbai bratike unnadani nammakam tho konnallu bathukuthadani...

suhasini's character is just friend of jaggayya's daughter.
she doesnt have romance with detective.
mucherla aruna is a doctor and was cheated by someone in the past, so she choses to remain unmarried.
Detective also doesn't have any comedy side and also doesn't have a hired attacker

In movie sutthi velu role was added as comedy asst.
Allu Aravind played role of hired attacker who keeps chiru alert wherever he goes.

Sudhakar, chandramohan, srilakshmi etc characters dont have weightage in novel.
Majority of novel deals with lives of orphans and private detection.

chantabbai lo nenu prema poojari song kosam meesam teesi, lady getup vesina chiru kosam aa unit lo director jandhyala tappa migata andaru aa roju meesam shaved anta !
shoot ayyaka, ade Miss Mary getup lo intiki velthe chiru's wife gurtupattaledanta !
evaro heroine intikochesindi anukunnaranta



cinema kosam chiru ki detective character ichinappudu climax lo chantabbai dorikinatlu, adi chiru ne ayinatlu changes chesaru.

chiru chesina full length comedy movie (without cinematic mass masala songs and fights etc) idokkate

indulo chiru, sutti velu, sutti veerabhara rao, srilakshmi, potti prasad chesina comedy highlight

Hilarious movie. Should grab a copy, viewing it on cable with commercials breaking the flow is a buzz kill.
