and Lakshman (Ram - Lakshman) aspire to become police
inspectors. But their parents had to pay hefty amount
as bribe to higher police officials by generating money
through their LIC policies by killing themselves in
an accident. After realizing the cause of death of their
parents, Ram and Lakshman start cleaning up the society
by eliminating the bribe-seeking officers and evildoers.
In the process they kill brother of a local mafia kingpin
Panda (Salim). Panda makes an assassination big to eliminate
Ram and Lakshman. Dr. Madhumati combines the proper
parts of two mutilated bodies and makes one perfect
man out of Ram and Lakshman. The rest of the story is
all about how he takes revenge on Panda.
and Lakshman are good in
fights department. But their histrionics are bad. Ram
(or Lakshman) appears ghastly in that black dress and
long curly hair. Even when they use a revolver, they
move their fists in such a way that they are going to
give a blow. Sanghavi is
adequate. Subba Raju got
a different role as officer on special duty. Salim
has got more to shout and less to act in this film.
His character is a straight rip-off of Panda's character
from Gharshana film. Abhinaya
Sri did an item song to entertain frontbenchers.
- screenplay - direction: Story of the film is a
typical revenge story. The cop part of the film is ripped
off from Venkatesh's 'Gharshana'. The concept of assembling
body parts of two individuals to make a healthy human
being is illogical. Screenplay of the film is very predictable.
Direction is second-rate.
Dialogues by Ghatikachalam are mediocre. Background
score and rerecording of this film is cacophonic. Fights
of the film are partly good. But too many extended fights,
thread work and shabby graphics spoiled the believability
of stunts. Cinematography is average.
Analysis: First half of the film
is mediocre. Second half is boring. The main point of
a doctor assembling to bodies to give life to one body
is very illogical. The narration of flashback of the
film is heavily influenced by Venky's Gharshana film.
The USP of this film are fights, but they are over-done
to an irritating extent. On a whole, Okkade (kani iddaru)
is an uninspiring film that is strictly meant for B
and C centers only.
