Multi Starrers are not too common in our Telugu films. We see two stars coming together for a film very rare. In the good olden days they were so common. For the reason unknown, our Telugu film viewers experience it very rarely. Trend of multi starrers again started with Mahesh Babu and Victory Venkatesh starrer Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu directed by Srikanth Addala produced by Dil Raju. This is again time for a multi starrer with Nagarjuna and Karthi coming together as cast with Thamanna Bhatia in female lead directed by Vamsi Paidipally under PVP Cinema. Let’s see how it works on us.
Seenu (Karthi) is a guy released from jail on parole. He is thrown out of his house by his mother (Jayasudha) about his behaviour putting his siblings career in his her mind. He attends an interview just to pass time and to get shelter. He then appointed as a care taker to Vikram Adithya (Nagarjuna Akkineni), chairman of Vikram Adithyaa group of companies. He is a quadriplegic patient, whose body is more like paralysed leaving his body parts immovable. How he takes care of Vikram?? What is the real reason behind Seenu getting job?? Answers to these questions form the rest of the story.
Cast and Performance
Nagarjuna Akkineni as Vikram Adithya, a quadriplegic patient is a lot more than fantastic. Their is no enough words to match his acting capabilities or his performance in Oopiri. As he was saying in interviews it is definitely a life changing movie for him. Karthi as Seenu is super good and is terrific in his role. He complimented Nagarjuna very well in performance like a brother. Thamanna Bhatia is fantabulous and super beautiful. Jayasudha is superb as a middle class mother. Late Kalpana garu is nice. Prakash Raj did a superb job. Ali is hilarious in his role. Thanikella Bharani is good in his limited role. Other actors did according to their given role. Cameos have been used well.
Story is so simple with a lot of emotions. Screenplay is so engaging and so convincing that audience watch it with a happy emotion on their face and wet eyes. Dialogues are situational and are well written.
Songs are fresh and breezing to ears. They are well composed putting situations in mind by Gopi Sundar. His background score is what it makes movie more emotional and more engaging. It is spell bounding. Cinematography by P S Vinodh is fantastic. He visuals are added advantage to this fantastic movie. Editing by Madhu is crisp. It is perfect. Race sequence is composed well. Production values are so rich.

As the audience are suffocating with lot of so much routine and content less movies, here comes Nagarjuna Akkineni who is striving in his 50’s to do something to Telugu cinema and take it to a next level. He backed up the vision and dream of Vamsi Paidipally to make our audience experience different kind of movies. This movie is so rich in breathtaking emotions and eye moisturizing scenes. When a right script is backed up by a fantastic work by all the cast and crew a film like Oopiri happens. Generally, audience doesn’t accept a star hero having immense charm to be in the shoes of Vikram Adithya, character played by Nagarjuna, but he made it with ease and audience accept him the way he is seen. Definitely, the credit should be given to Vamsi Paidipally for attempting a life changing, daring and unconventional novel script. It is a must watch movie to have some entertaining as well as making your eyes teary sequences and emotions. To sum up, Oopiri is a breath of fresh air into Telugu cinema.
