Oka Manasu is a movie which is basically based on a love story which has created a lot of buzz because of one f the foremost reason which most of the movies work like in this movie Chiranjeevi’s niece Niharika has played the lead role and got the most appreciation for her acting, She is debuting with this film.
The role she played is named as Sandhya who is a doctor in a government hospital located in Vizianagaram and she falls in love with the other lead role of film Surya (Naga Shourya) who is an aspiring future politician. He is famous because he is the son of an already popular politician (Rao Ramesh). His father’s only dream is to see him as an MLA in the upcoming elections. Surya lands in prison after thrashing someone, and once he is out, Sandhya asks him to stop doing all this because she doesn’t like it his ways. But Surya says that he can’t do this because his father has a dream of watching him as a political leader .
Because of this the father puts a condition in front of Surya t leave her and that’s where the climax begins while showing the story of their love in a short time and trying to do it very efficiently. Oka Manasu is directed by Rama Raju’s which is his second movie after the Mallela Theeramlo which was critically acclaimed. The biggst thing which was missing in the whole movie was Rama Raju missed out with the slow narration. The Chance which the director has taken to show how everything is politicised these days, even the love of a young couple. But he manages to make the point only in the climax and the whole movie was dependent on after it, not before.
Performances of Naga Shourya is most preferred and loved by the audience and the most important thing which steals the show with his expressions accompanied with great acting. Even after it is the debut movie of Niharika she was very confident and the film is a good launch-pad for her to showcase her talent. Rao Ramesh once again comes up with superb performance, but his role is limited.
Though the narration is slow, the music makes the film interesting. Location also plays an important role in this movie and supporting it through out. Rama Raju’s dialogues are thought-provoking. while Rama Raju has tried to show an intensive love story with a political backdrop, it fails to connect emotionally with the audience.
The collection of the movie is as below shown:
1st day: 7.2 crore
2nd day: 9.2 crore
3rd day: 8.5 crore.
The movie is going on well around the box-offices and between the audience.
