Is someone's Belief in VIRTUE more important than VIRTUE itself? Do rational thoughts destroy your soul? The depth of these questions cannot be scaled. The Interpretation of these facts seem normal, But it is going to be visible only to those who wish to see it. Experience will only teach us, 'what not to do', But 'not what to do'. Chandamama Kathalu is a paradox of a writer's point of view about life and his journey towards the path of enlightenment that we humans are mire particles in the greater aspect of the universe and forces beyond our imagination. The Real treasure of the movie is the apodictic situations and Philosophical Facts, which hide behind a mask of casual conversation and Real life Actions. 8 threads/plots/stories, interwoven and inter-cut, take you on a journey through Poverty, Deception, Glamour, Greed, Affluence, Conjugality, Hope and Bard, traveling from the slums to the affluent hills, from adolescence to retirement and from ignorance to arrogance in contemporary...
