Naga Chaitanya pins all hopes on scoring solo commercial success with Oka Laila Kosam directed by Vijay Kumar Konda whose first movie Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde was a blockbuster.
The story of the article:
Karthik (Naga Chaitanya) completes graduation and seeks a year break from his parents to decide on career. He sees a beautiful girl Nandu (Pooja Hegde) and proposes love to her. However, the girl rejects the proposal as she has bad opinion on him. Unknowing of this factor, Karthik parents fix his marriage with Nadu. Karthik is happy with the proposal. Even Nandu also accepts this for the happiness of her parents. All of a sudden, police arrests Karthik in a murder case. What happens next is to be seen on big screens.
Naga Chaitanya performed like a mature actor. Still, he needs to improve a lot. He worked hard even on dances too. He looked stylish in trendy outfits. Pooja Hegde was gorgeous and the girl has given good performance. Chemistry between the lead pair has worked out well. Ali was amusing as Chaitu’s uncle. Sayaji Shinde, Suman were good in regular roles. Other artists played their parts.
Anoop Rubens composed songs were decent. Oka Laila Kosam and O Sathiya were picks of the album. His re recording work was fascinating.
Cinematography / Editing:
I Andrew gave his best in capturing all the frames. Songs piucturization was neat. He has shown the lead characters Naga Chaitanya and Pooja Hegde enchantingly. Praveen Pudi editing work was middling. He should have chopped off few lag scenes in second half.
Nagarjuna has spent good budget on Oka Laila Kosam. The movie looked rich with high production standards. Seems like, Nag didn’t compromise on anything to give best for his son.
Vijay Kumar Konda is expert in dealing love stories. This is second film for him after delivering a blockbuster Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde. Though he has chosen regular story, he penned engaging screenplay. He has opted the ‘confusing’ screenplay for Oka Laila Kosam too. Vijay has dealt few crucial sequences quite efficiently. He worked out superb chemistry between the lead pair and has written Ali sequences hilariously. Even climax was well handled by the craftsman.
Oka Laila Kosam is a romantic entertainer with sweat and cute pair- Naga Chaitanya and Pooja Hegde. The movie has some interesting episodes. It is sure to perform well at urban and multiplexes. As the movie has some adequate comedy in the form of Ali, it is expected to perform decent in other areas too. The film’s final prediction depends on how the B and C center audience receive.
