Nara Rohit New Telugu Film Okkadine Movie Review:
Producer CV Reddy’s Okkadine starring Nara Rohit and Nithya Menon in leads, is one of the most-hyped Telugu movies. Directed by Katha fame Srinivas Raga, the film was to release in November 2012, but got delayed nearly three months for some unknown reason. Finally, this much-awaited flick has hit the marquee today. But the tried and tested story and slow-faced narration will bore you.
Nithya menon (Silaja) is daughter of Shivaji Rao (Sai Kumar) popular politician who aims to become chief minister of state. Nithya comes to India after spending 10 years aboard and go for a week trip to Vizak. There she meet Suryam (Rohith) family and falls in love with him. But she comes to know that he trapped her to disclose evil dark character of Sai Kumar. What happens to love story of Nithya and Rohith? Did he succeeded in disposing Sai Kumar’s original character? has to be seen on the silver screen.
Nara Rohith has delivered very good performance. When compared to his acting in his previous films like Solo and Baanam, there is lot of improvement and he has shows more maturity in his acting. He looks superb in action, dance and sentimental sequences.
Nithya Menon has good scope in the movie and she has done justice to her role. She impresses you with glamour and dance moves in song sequences. Others like Saikumar, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Sudha, Nagababu, Chandramohan, MS Narayana are good in their respective roles. Ali and Brahmanandam try to tickle your funny bones, but may not impress you as usual they do. Srinivas Reddy also brings laughs with his funny lines.
Technical and Other Departments:
The director has chosen a good subject, which might have impressed family audience if he had executed it on with fast-paced narration.Singer-turned-musician Karthik’s music is the main highlight in the technical front. He has composed some of the different, trendy melodious tracks for the movie Okkadine. His tunes like ‘Dola Dola…,’ ‘Hola Hola…’ and ‘Seethakoka Nachchave…’ are good to listen. Andrew Babu’s picturisation is another highlight in the technical front. Chintapalli Ramana’s dialogues and Nagendra’s art are also good assets to the film. Marthand K Venkatesh’s editing is also commendable. But he could have a few scenes and made it look even better.
Okkadine is a romance-action flick, and Nara Rohit’s performance and Nithya Menon’s glamour are the main highlights of the film. Karthik’s music, Andrew Babu’s cinematography, Srinivas Raga’s screenplay, Ali-Brahmanandam-Srinivasreddy’s comedy, Chintapalli Ramana’s dialogues and Nagendra’s art direction are its other attractions. The dragging narration is its biggest drawback.The movie is a youthful family entertainer, which expounds love and familial affection with reference to the contemporary living. The first half of the movie has three songs, few comedy sequences and has no fights. It is very slow and dragging in parts, but the unexpected and paranormal twist just before the interval bang sets your mood for an interesting ride.When you are thinking that the movie would head in a brisk pace in the second half, it resumes the same snail pace after some time and due to some tragic and flashback sequences. Even the climax fails to bring a smile on the face of the viewers, who walk out of theatre in annoyed state of mind. The second hour of the film has two songs and a few fight and comedy sequences.
If you are a fan of nara and nandhamuri Family!Just go and watch the film
