oosaravelli Tony (NTR) is a wily youngster who does illegal things for money. He falls in love with Niharika (Tamanna) during a freak incident. He keeps following her and proposing to her. But she is engaged to some other rich guy. Tony has a secret mission and he is in hot pursuit of somebody. The rest of the story is all about the love story between the lead pair and how Tony achieved his mission.

Artists Performance

oosaravelliNTR: NTR has shown inclination and flair to venture into the path less travelled with the character of Tony. He is very good in entertainment episodes where his fear turns into nightmare for the others (credit should be given for writing team as well). His dialogues are different in this movie. He gave the much needed massy dialogue in the climax episode. His performance in the flashback episode is excellent.

oosaravelliOthers: Tamanna has done an important role in the movie. Her performance in the flashback with short haircut is superb. Prakash Raj has done the role of main villain who makes an entrance only in the second half. Jaya Prakash Reddy entertains as a don who is used by NTR. The sidekicks of JP (especially Raghu Babu and Karumanchi Raghu) are excellent. Payal Ghosh (heroine of Prayanam film) did heroine’s friend and she is nice. Sayaji Shinde, Tanikella Bharani, Kick Shyam, Rehman etc have done other prominent roles.

Technical departments

oosaravelliStory - screenplay - direction: The basic story line is inspired by a Chinese film titled Vengeance (2009). It is a straight narration flick, the script writers have used non-linear format to script the screenplay of Oosaravelli. There are also a few shades of The Departed movie for an episode. Surender Reddy has always made sure that there is stylized content in his movies and this film is no exception. The content and presentation is suave and stylish. The screenplay is sophisticated. Direction is good in parts. However there are a couple of glitches in the basic arch of the story. The basic foundation point that comes in the flashback should have been more emphatic and forceful. When we have terrorist content as hero intro scene in the movie, we expect a heavy fight. But the director dealt it with novelty (see on the screen to know what I am referring to). The back and forth narration is used for the most of the time.

oosaravelliOther departments: Music by Devi Sri Prasad is an asset. The best song of the movie in my opinion is Sri Anjaneyam that comes in the flashback. There is lot of force and emotion in that song. Cinematography by Rasool Ellore is slick. Dialogues by Koratala Shiva are good. Fights composed by Ram - Laxman are good. S Ravinder’s art director is apt. This movie is mounted on a big production scale.

oosaravelliAnalysis: First half of the film is nice with decent entertainment. The foundation of the story which comes in the second half should have been stronger. However, the Tamanna’s story in the flashback episode is heartt-touching and emotional. The climax should have been crisp. The plus points of the movie are NTR and different screenplay. On the flipside, better care in terms of commercial elements would have done a world of good. On a whole, Oosaravelli is a different movie for NTR.
