777 Charlie movie synopsis
Dharma (Rakshit Shetty), a loner who hates meeting people, socializing, spends his time by working in a factory, having Idli and beer, and watching TV. In the boring life of this complete saadu (lonely), enters a small Labrador Charlie and a complete turnaround takes place in Dharma’s life.
In the companionship of the cute little Charlie – the female dog Dharma finds purpose, develops kindness and turns into a better human.
If this is the debut of writer director Kiranraj K, then we have a sensible filmmaker to look out for who has an edge over understanding emotions that can appeal universally.
777 Charlie is a soul pleasing mash up of drama, love, thrill, coming of age, road trip, friendship, comedy, tragedy all in one.
The contrast in the characters – Dharma an aggressive loner, an introvert while the stray female dog Charlie a fun loving mischievous extrovert, make for a perfect match.
The metaphor in names – Charlie inspired by the great master Charlie Chaplin and his eternal classic A Dog’s Life (1918) and Dharma (duty, responsibility) adds layers to the story.
777 Charlie is filled with genuine sentiments that carries universal appeal.
The message to love animals, adopting pets and finding companionship without any string attached comes out strikingly.
The climax will make any sensitive person teary eyed and it’s spiritual as well.
Rakshit Shetty is outstanding. His transformation from being the loner to the caring Dharma and his bonding scenes with Charlie are striking to the core.
The female Labrador is a take home, adorable right from the first frame till the end.
Sangeetha Sringeri, an Animal Welfare Officer is very impressive and leaves her mark.
Raj B Shetty is hilarious, Danish Sait is okay and
Bobby Simha is fantastic.
And last but not the least, the cute little neighbor Adrika played by Sharvari is cuteness redefined.
At times repetitive and caught in its own loop.
777 Charlie is an unforgettable story of love and compassion that is destined to tug the heartstrings of kids, their parents, and if you are a dog lover then the film will have you eating out of your hands in no time.
