it is a landmark
28 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have read the earlier comment on this movie and felt unconvinced. This is the landmark movie ever made in Telugu film industry. Each scene in this movie is a trend setting one....after okkadu, around 10-15 movies were made by taking okkadu as inspiration or as imitation....I can explain each scene in this movie can create a story ...a new story....Even gunashekhar and mahesh combo couldn't repeat a movie like okkadu...I hope it takes around 15-20 years to get a masterpiece like okkadu, even the biggest hit pokiri could not compete with the quality and grace of okkadu. Frankly I have not seen a Telugu film....which has a chase of around 25 min. with an ultimate tempo and I like the links between scenes and liveliness of the characters. Leave music,mahesh and bhoomika aside, the ideas of gunashekhar.....hats off to his ideas...as I said it is a masterpiece and I dare to compare it with ever greens like pathala bhairavi, mayabazar and sholay.
