The film Chakka Panja revolves around four friends in a village – Raja (Deepak Raj Giri), Magne (Kedar Ghimire) , Saraswati (Jeetu Nepal) & Buddhi (Buddhi Tamang). Raja is rich but illiterate and enjoys his life and tells his friends to not get married or hold nay jobs. However he secretly has affairs with married women.

Then one day Raja gets married to Champa (Priyanka Karki), and the story enters a serious mode when Champa elopes with someone else. The lives of Raja and his friends are turned upside down. Chakka Panja is a total comedy and social drama , a story of friendship , love and revenge. It is hilarious from start to end. With comedy and satire on society, it ‘is’ funny and takes you to Raja’s Land.

Deepa Shree Niraula as the debutant director has done a good job. The storyline and setting is nothing new, but the way it has been presented is different, hence refreshing. Girl’s look resembles that of Govinda’s in the bollywood film Raja Babu. Except for Dayahang Rai and Sitaram Kattel (Dhurmus) of Wada No.6 , the other characters are the same. One may see these characters regularly on television, but the director has presented these characters in new avatars.

The first half of the film moves with Giri and his friends’ mischievous acts and social problems of society — leaving one’s wife to work in a foreign country , unemployment, society’s culture to show off, poverty, domestic violence and so on. In the middle of the second-half, the story takes a turn surprising the audience with its terrific ending.

Giri justifies his role as Raja. His cunning nature, Raja Babu style get-up and perfect comedy timing steal audience’s heart as Raja. Karki as Champa and Poudel as the mystery man do a decent job. Nepal & Ghimire tickle your funny bone with their gags and humor. Tamang as the coward husband is apt and really funny. Aruna Karki as the tigress wife Devi’s natural. Aryan Sigdel in a cameo as an NRN is treat to watch.

The songs Purba Paschim Rail & Dekhana Champa Sunanana Champa – Rajan Raj Shiwakoti and Deepak Sharmas composition – will thrill you. The background score is awesome.
