Movie Review
Average User rating:




Tarun, Saloni and Raja starrer Oka Vurilo is a fine blend of performances, good cinematography and
exciting shot takings but with only slow narration. Ramesh Varma, a publicity designer, made debut
with this film as a director. He has a nice taste and vision in his takings.



Ramesh Varma planned the sequences so good for the lead characters that all the three got a nice share of
scenes. Especially Tarun and Raja got equal share to perform. Raja comes in only second part though, when the plot
moves from village backdrop to the city. Srinu (Tarun), Lalita (Saloni) and Ravi (Raja) are childhood friends.
Ravi moves to city in his childhood. Srinu and Lalita grow up together and fall in love. However, Srinu's father has different plans for him. So they run away from the village. This is where the plot shifts from village backdrop to the city. In city, they take the shelter of their childhood friend Ravi. But luck runs out on
the love couple. They get seperated due to the circumstances and Lalita ends up in the shelter of Ravi.




Raja did a good job with his performance. Though he appears starting the second half, he has got the key role. And
the character has got good scope for the performance. Raja utilized the opportunity. Especially the scenes in the
hospital and his confrontation scenes with his parents prove the maturing actor in him. Tarun is apt in the role
of Srinu. As a stinkingly rich brat, Tarun delivered a good performance. He did songs with ease. Tarun has proved all the while on how good an actor he is. However, it is the luck that he is still trying to get hold of. He is getting the right banners but things are not quite working at the boxoffice to get him the required image.



Saloni also got a performance-scoped role. It is a good opportunity for her. She did most of the part quite well. There are few emotional sequences where she could have done better. The film has lot of star casting which included Naresh, Nirosha and Yamuna also. For Nirosha and Yamuna, both of them are away from the screen for quite sometime. The characters they did might be a warm up for them but not those which get recognition. Chandramohan did the role as the father
of Saloni and did the role to content.




Sunil brings in some relief with his comedy. In the second half, Brahmanandam adds to the comedy. MS Narayana and
Ali did their roles well. First half deals with the lovestory developing between Tarun and Saloni in the village. Second half goes very slowly and takes a beating because of the slow narration. Also the songs in the second half are misplaced.



Technically cinematography stands out. The way the rural locales of AP are captured is binding. It is a good job
done by Arjun with the camera. There is nothing much in the story. But the director picked a launching concept for himself - love. But the narration gets slow at times. The screenplay is not effective and enticing. Slow narration and not-effective screenplay are the 2 let downs in this film. Ramesh Varma has a knack for directing emotional scenes. That is pretty evident in the film. Ramesh Varma will prove a good director if he can take care of the story and screenplay.



Music by Devisri is so so. The introduction song of the heroine is pretty good. Otherthan that there is nothing
special in the songs. Background is pretty decent, though.
