Oopiri had created a lot of hype right from the time the time the casting has been announced. Now let’s see how this bilingual turns out to be.
Akkineni Nagarjuna, who is a millionaire bound to a wheelchair, looks out for a caretaker who would make his life bright. After interviewing several persons, he finally opts for Karthik Sivakumar, who happens to be a crook. While others have a dislike for Karthi, Nagarjuna looks at him beyond the imperfections. But life is not a bed of roses. Both have their share of problems and how they emerge victorious in solving these form the crux of the film.
Nagarjuna, who still looks young for his age, has given a graceful performance. He has understood the subtleties of his character well and played it with conviction. And as far as Karthi is concerned, the role is tailor-made for him; he slips off into his easy-go-lucky character with great ease. Also, he proves that he is good in comedy. In fact, the humor of Karthi in the film will have an impact on the audience. Tamannaah Bhatia looks ravishing, and her comedy track with Karthi is commendable. Prakash Raj and Jayasudha, both seasoned actors, ably support.
Director Vamsi Padipally has intelligently directed Oopiri, which deals with a great bond between two men. The movie, which is an adaptation of the French flick The Intouchables, is loyal to the latter regarding the feel-good aspect. For the uninitiated, even The Intouchables was based on a real story.
Sometimes the directors make changes to a remake film so that it suits the taste of the audiences. And in that process, the outcome is not convincing. But Vamsi is efficient enough in bringing those changes that only embellish the film.
What’s not there?
The pace of the second half is quite dragging.
Watch the film and experience the joy of living.
