Nara Rohit’s ‘Okkadine’ has finally released today after a considerable delay and the movie has Nithya Menen as the heroine. Srinivas Raga has directed this movie and C.V.Reddy is the producer. The film’s music has been composed by Karthik. Let us see how ‘Okkadine’ is.
shailaja (nithya menen) is the daughter of a wealthy businessman named shivaji (sai kumar). She returns to India for a vacation and heads to a resort near Vishakhapatnam owned by Sreenu Mama (Nagababu) to relax for a few days.
she meets surya (nara rohit) there and falls in love with his family. love slowly blossoms between them and she reveals her intentions to her father shivaji, who approves. The story takes a turn at this point and Shailaja realizes that everything she has experienced is an illusion.
surya reveals that shivaji has another side and the story now turns into a revenge drama. Shailaja now has to choose between his father and Surya. which side does she choose? what is the other side of shivaji?
which forms the history of okkadine.
points in favor:
nara rohit did her best to save this movie, but there’s not much she can do when it’s severely hampered by an atrocious script and poor direction. he has done a decent job on the action sequences. nithya menen looks cute and adorable.
naga babu is good and his brief fight in the second half with a sickle is one of the few good moments in the movie.
negative points :
The film suffers from an atrocious script and there are terrible mistakes in the film. a corpse kills the main villain in the climactic fight. yes, you read it right. a corpse is used to kill the main villain in the climax. what was the motive behind such a scene? there are plenty of other ways the villain could have died if the director hadn’t wanted the hero to die.
The placement of the songs in the film leaves a lot to be desired. the article song ‘puttintollu tharimesaru’ and a popular song are massive speed breakers. none of the songs really impress.
the family scenes involving kota srinivasa rao, sudha, rohit and nithya are very superficial and seem a bit over the top at times. there is no strong emotional conviction in the scenes and they end up irritating the viewers.
experienced artists like kota srinivasa rao, sai kumar, bannerjee, srinivasa reddy, etc. have been wasted on silly papers. brahmanandam has received a very bad characterization as a sodhan investigative reporter. ali fails to give the impression of being a thief.
Andrew has directed the camera on this film, but the cinematography is surprisingly lackluster. the editing is very bad and about 20 minutes of the film could easily have been cut. the dialogues are very normal.
srinivas raga’s directing leaves a lot to be desired. the production values are very mediocre.
okkadine is a poorly executed revenge saga. nara rohit and nithya menen have done their best to limit the damage, but have been thwarted by a very bad script and poor direction.
