Chunkzz: An adult comedy in the garb of an entertainer

Few might find this movie to be paisa vasool, but, that doesn’t justify its tasteless and offensive attempt at humour  

Published: 04th August 2017

One question that kept popping up in my head throughout Omar Lulu’s Chunkzz was how this movie managed to get a U certificate. For Chunkzz is every bit an adult comedy, littered with innuendos and crude jokes. Yes, there are funny moments, thanks to its overall peppy feel and comic timing, but at no point does Chunkzz shed its sex comedy tag.

The story is set in an engineering college, where our gang studies (well, nothing much in the way of study happens there, all they do is ogle girls and enjoy life). Into the mechanical engineering class, walks in the Mech Rani (Honey Rose), who is serenaded by a horde of admirers. Everybody wants to woo her. Soon, there is the essential Goa trip. What happens next forms the crux of the story.

Cast: Honey Rose, Balu Varghese, Dharmajan Bolgatty
Director: Omar Lulu

While I wouldn’t be surprised to see Chunkzz doing extremely well at the box office (the youth are already queuing up), it is hard not to notice how flimsy and offensive the storyline is.

The lack of meat in the plot has been concealed with some witty one-liners. This ploy works somewhat. The comic timing of Dharmajan Bolgatty, Balu Varghese and Lal makes up for the lack of drama, and this is the biggest lure of Chunkzz. Gopi Sunder’s music is another highlight, the BGM is lively enough to charge up the sequences.

But, the most disheartening thing in Chunkzz is the low-brow humour. Omar has to be quite adventurous to find humour even in ‘Pulsar Suni’ and voyeurism. Most times, the one-liners are obscene, offensive, rascist and disrespectful. Is this because the cast, crew and a large segment of their audience are all young? Did the director think he could sell this off as humour to them? The question is for Omar to answer.

The main objective of Honey Rose, who plays the female lead, is to look good, while Mereena Micheal plays the “bold, bike-riding and kick-a-few-butts type” girl. Except for Lal and Siddique, most of the actors are very young, and do their parts well. For an entertainer, a few might find Chunkzz a ‘paisa vasool’venture.
