oohalu-gusagusalade-reviewBOTTOM LINE
Lacks imagination.

‘U’ Certified, 143 mins.


What is “Oohalu Gusagusalade” about?
After going through numerous marriage proposals Uday Bhaskar ( Srinivas Avasarala) finally likes a girl immensely and wants to marry her at any way possible. But his ways to win over the girl forms a bad opinion in her mind. Sirisha ( Rashee Khanna) agrees to marry him only if she finds someone even worse than him in behavior. Uday sets up Venki ( Naga Shourya) to be that person. What happens in the end is what the film showcases in a very classy manner with lots of comic situations in second half.

How is Nag Shourya performance?
Naga Shourya has a decent and likable screen presence. He is well suited for the role and that helps his cause more than the performance.

avasarala-srinivasDirection by Srinivas Avasarala?
Actor Srinivas Avasarala makes his debut with the film. Its a light hearted romance with lots of emphasis on small moments that the occur during a summer gone by. The director idea for the story is right for the actual scenes lack the magic required for such a story to work. However the real downer is the main plot which fizzles out soon after interval. Things seems to be going on in a loop and therefore feel extremely repetitive despite containing some real hilarious situations and writing. In the end one must say the director has failed overall in his debut attempt. The biggest plus though is his dialogues.

Rashi Khanna and other artists performance?
Rashee Khanna making debut with the film adds to the long list of pretty faces who acts all grown up and mature without being either. All she has to convey is conveyed through the dubbing artist. Avasarala Srinivas has a good but one dimensional role for him. His character is central to the proceedings but he isn’t able to hold things together with his performance. Prudhvi is alright. Rao Ramesh has a limited role but still manages to attract. There are a number of other known faces too but none really stand out and create an impression.

How is Kalyani Koduri’s Music and other departments ?
Music by Kalyani Koduri along with the background score are a major plus for the film. Whatever little feel the film generates is sue to these elements combination with the cinematography. Add some good one liners without any vulgarity and with some old world charm, we have a film where the technical team dominates the main artists. Editing is decent overall.

Clean comedy.
Music and BGM

Second half.

What about the box office performance of the film?
The film had a very limited appeal to begin with. Adding to it the fact that it’s not a well made movie, the journey at the box office would be an extremely difficult one. With a biggie coming up chances of any sort of miracle happening too is almost next to impossible.

Did I enjoy it?
Yes few parts.

Will you recommend it?
No, theatrically but sure on home viewing if you are a fan of clean comedy even if it drags a lot.
