Yugandhar (Srihari) is an encounter special who gets
transferred very frequently due to his honest attempts
to curb the crime. Home Minister appointed SP Yugandhar
to Seema region to tackle Subbarayudu (Mukesh Rushi)
and his son Chinnappa (Bharat) who have been running
a parallel government. The rest of the story is all
about how sets everything right.
Srihari: Srihari is terrific and dominated the
role of SP Yugandhar in his own indomitable style. His
characterization is the most stylish among the films
in which Srihari acted as solo hero. He underplayed
his character at times and never went over-board. He
wore casual wear most of the times than cop's uniform.
Santoshini is adequate
as the supporting wife. Mukesh
Rukhi enacted the routine role of Seema's bad
guy which he has been doing over half a decade. Bharat
(younger brother of Ravi Teja) donned the role of a
maverick guy. Though appears different, he went overboard
most of the times. LB Sriram
has got a very important character in this film for
which he has done justice. The 'Abbe' mannerism by Dharmavarapu
Subramanyam hit well with the masses. Sivaji
Raja is competent. Naga
Babu and Jaya Prakash Reddy
are appropriate. Abhinayasri performed
for the only song in this film.
- screenplay - direction: Story of the film is routine.
Screenplay is adequate though gone flat in the second
half. Direction suits the requirement of story. Telugu
film directors have been showing Rayalaseema in a very
bad light and this film is no exception. It is quite
ironical for SP Yugandhar to preach the fellow cops
to follow procedures in stead of killing the villains,
when he encountered so many people in the past without
giving them a chance to go for a trail.
departments: A couple of fights composed by Horseman
Babu are good. Back ground music by Vandemataram is
nice. He used metal/rock guitar for the background music
for Sri Hari's appearances. Cinematography by Adusumalli
Vijay Kumar is neat. Dialogues written by Veligonda
Srinivas are an asset. Here is the punch dialogue of
Srihari - 'naaku rende telusu. Okati Telugulo tegesi
cheppadam. Rendu English lo encounter cheyyadam'
First half of the film is engaging enough. Second half's
tempo goes down a bit. The climax should have been better.
The plus points of the film are Srihari's performance,
dialogues and mass elements. The negative aspects are
routine storyline and unimpressive climax. On a whole,
Okkade makes an average flick for a normal movie lover
and a satisfactory one for the masses who enjoy Srihari's
reviews of previous 5 films
