Some movies are made in such a way that they don't have any relationship with the title at all. Howrah Bridge is one such movie. Rahul Ravindran who got an instant fame with Andala Rakshasi is the hero and Chandini Chowdary who entered the movie industry with her short films is the heroine. Take a look at the review of the movie.
Arjun (Rahul Ravindran) and Shruthi alias Sweety (Manali Rathod) meet during the childhood at the Machavaram Bridge. They get parted and grow away from each other. After 18 years, Rahul Ravindran comes in search of his love interest Sweety. He mistakes Sweety (Chandini Chowdary) for his childhood friend and gets closer to her. Sweety who is brought up by her relative Ajay decides to marry him as a token of gratitude. But, she eventually falls for Arjun. What happens next is to be watched in the theaters only.
Roles and Performances:
Rahul Ravindran has failed to live up to the expectations. His action in Andala Rakshasi was quite better for that matter.
Chandini Chowdary appears very beautiful. She is the only charm that can be given attention in this movie. The other actors failed to reach the expectations.
Though the movie Howrah Bridge has a good concept, it fails to keep the audience entertained. Lagged screenplay with no scenes properly interwoven leaves the audience impatient.
The chemistry between the hero and the heroine might have worked out better if the makers would have taken proper care. One will not understand why this movie is titled as 'Howrah Bridge'.
There are some double meaning dialogues in the movie which will make you wonder if this is a love story or not. A mediocre take on a love story.
The technical values are poor for Howrah Bridge. The songs are routine with no proper leads. The camera work disappoints. Editing is half done. The screenplay is dragged and leads to boredom.

Final Verdict: The Howrah Bridge Falls Down! Skip.
