A pure love story
24 June 2016 | by posinaliveSee all my reviews

Oka manasu is a love story as the title suggests. But what it really is a collage of moments between two people in Love. The graph of the love slowly grows on you and the last 20 to 30 mins will just melt your heart.

There is no story in the movie for 60% of the time. As I said earlier it is just a collage of moments between Surya and Sandhya. This format of showing love is pretty new and so slowly grows on you. And in second half when the story unfolds, you keep hoping against the hope for the couple to unite. And they do unite to become "Oka Manasu" but how? That needs to be experienced by watching the movie.

If I have to take the names then Sunil Kashyap the music director leads the list. His songs and background score are life of the movie. Then comes director Rama Raju who was very bold to make such a pure and unadulterated love story for this generation. Coming to actors both Shaurya and Niharika did good along with everyone. But Niharika acted like a very senior actor. Her fine nuances is acting need to be watched only on screen to even understand how promising she looked. I cannot even put her acting into words. She definitely shouldered the movie pretty good. Not to lessen Shaurya's contribution, he was good too. Their chemistry is so adorable and very touching. And finally the dialogues. They are very thought provoking and deep in meaning. Not your regular Trivikram style one liners. Only drawback in the movie is some melodramatic treatment of one or two scenes.

On a whole, I LOVED IT but this may not be everyone's cup of tea. This is a very soulful love story which Telugu cinema has not seen in last two decades. If you like this movie it will haunt you for few days.
