Oka Manasu - Story
The story is all about two different persons by profession but one by heart. Sandhya and Surya who have fallen in deep love try to make each other happy but because of Surya's unthought step pushes them into lot of confusion. Many a times, they thought of parting ways, but the love between them never made them do so. But a situation arrives where Surya has been in a fix of choosing between politics or Sandhya. Even though he tried moving away from Sandhya it did not happen and expressed his feelings and pleased her not to leave him and he would manage things. Knowing all this, Sandhya feels that it would be better for Surya to follows his father's wish and meanwhile a shocking twist comes and the love story ends on a sad note.
Oka Manasu - Star Performance
Naga Shourya and Niharika are the pillars of the movie and they shoulder the movie single handed. Most of the scenes are between the two lead pairs and that really, really, really annoys us ! The narration is also snail paced. Naga shourya has done an exemplary job and he fits the bill perfectly. Also Niharika is gorgeous and she has 'Girl Next Door' features. But she is stone faced even in emotional sequences. Dialogue delivery and modulation is good. But the expressions are zero. However she has passed for a debutante. Rao Ramesh as a caring and lovable father does his job neatly. Rest of the characters ? No idea who they are and what they are doing. Most of the frames are just dominated by the lead characters alone.
Oka Manasu - Technical Team
Music by Sunil Kashyap is the big time saviour. Some soul rendering melodious score has blended well with the visuals. The enchanting visuals compliment the mesmerizing music and it is the backbone of the movie. But at times, we feel the songs are an interruption too. In this kind of movie, dialogues matter a lot. But the dialogues are so dry and they never spark anything for the lovers or the audience who watches it. Director Ramaraju has done a good job in making a love story from a new perspective, But there are 'ZERO' entertaining elements for routine audience who prefer some light hearted comedies at least.
Oka Manasu - Analysis
This movie is a pure love story that concentrates on feelings and the extent to which lovers can go to when in love. A good attempt by the director. As a final word the movie is all about Love, love and indefinite love!
