Varahi Chalana Chitram has produced the romantic film Oohalu Gusa Gusa Laade. The movie has released across the world and Srinivas Avasarala is making his debut as a director. Let us see how this movie is now.
Venky (Naga Shourya) is a TV anchor in a teleshopping program in UB TV. His aim is to become a news reader, to fulfil the dream of his sick father. For this, he does everything he can to please his boss Uday (Avasarala Srinivas).
One day a marriage broker (Prithvi) brings an alliance for Uday and he falls in love with the girl. He requests Venky to help him in impressing the girl as she is a very demanding person. As Venky gets into the matter, he discovers that the girl is none other than his old lover Prabhavathi (Raasi Khanna).
A comedy of errors starts as Venky is caught between his former lover and his boss. Venky also develops feelings for Prabhavathi. What does he do? Who will marry Prabhavathi? That is the story.
Plus Points :
Naga Shourya is perfect as the boy next door. He has good ease in romantic scenes and he manages to support Srinivas Avasarala well in comedy scenes. Avasarala is very good as the bumbling boss Uday. His desperation to marry Prabhavathi is hilarious.
Raasi Khanna is a good find and this actress can get some good film in future. Posani and Rao Ramesh are decent.
Good second half is a major plus for the movie. The comedy will work in A centers and multiplexes. Avasarala’s restaurant scene with Raasi Khanna is hilarious.
Minus Points :
The film is a tad long. The first half could have been trimmed considerably as the romantic track between Naga Shourya and Raasi Khanna is not too good.
Placement of songs is very bad throughout the film. They don’t help the flow in any way.
The comedy and romantic scenes will not work in B and C centers. It is a strictly A centre film.
Technical Aspects :
Cinematography is good . Editing is poor. KALYANI koduri has done a decent job with the music and background score . Dialogues are very good.
Avasarala’s direction in this movie is average. He should work on his narrative style for better speed. Even though this film is a small budget flick, the production values are equal to a mainstream commercial film. The production house has made sure that they have not compromised on the richness of the film, and have once again proved their conviction towards film making
‘Oohalu Gusa Gusa Laade ‘ is a romantic comedy that will make for a great weekend watch with its good entertainment levels . This is a film that will do well in multiplex areas.
