Nagarjuna who has been in tremendous form lately is once again bang on the money with Oopiri. The veteran superstar should be lauded for picking such an unusual character of a paraplegic. Tamil hero Karthi gets into the skin of the character and director Vamshi Paidipally comes up with a supremely sensible film that has many soulful and breathtaking moments in it.

What is it about?

Vikramaditya (Nag) is a filthy rich entrepreneur who has thousands of crores, but he is a paraplegic. He needs to find a caretaker to take care of everything about him. Sreenu (Karthi) is a spoiled brat and thief who come out of jail on parole. He has to prove to the judges that he could be well behaved to get out from trouble. He takes up the caretaker job of Vikramaditya and how they influence each other's lives is what this film is about.

Performances:


Nagarjuna: No words to describe Nagarjuna's courage to take up such a character. He is superb as the paraplegic billionaire. Despite being in the wheel chair all the time, the charm of Nagarjuna is present all the time.

Karthi: Karthi is a very good choice for this character. He gets into the skin of the character and lives every moment of it. The result is the finest performance ever in his career so far.

Tamanna and Others: Tamanna is elegant and suave in her role. She is very good with her expressions too. Prakash Raj and Jayasudha add value to the proceedings. All the actors are aptly cast and delivered their best.

Technicalities:

Direction: Vamshi Paidipally surprises us with his sensible handling of the French remake 'The Intouchables'. He has done a fabulous job in getting the emotions right. There are many moments that prove his capabilities and sensibilities as a director.

Music and Others:
Songs are part of the storytelling and Gopi Sunder did a decent job with the tunes. His background score is one of the assets of the film. Cinematography is superb with vibrant visuals. Dialogues are very good. Editing could have been better. The film drags unnecessarily at times. Producers should be appreciated for believing in the story and investing so much into it. They deserve more than a pat on the back for their commitment.

Analysis:

Oopiri is one of the best movies of our times. It is not a film but an experience. We cannot describe the pleasure of watching it in words. It has to be felt as an audience. It is a terrific adaptation of the French classic The Intouchables by Vamshi Paidipally and his team. They were successful in recreating the magic of original and also in connecting with the sentiments of our audience.

Oopiri is another milestone in Nagarjuna's career who has many memorable movies in his kitty already. Karthi will sure become a household name in Telugu states after his portrayal of Sreenu in this film. This film belongs to Nag and Karthi. They were extremely believable in the lead roles and made the director's job easy.

Oopiri is all about moments and emotions. It cannot be seen as a simple film based on two people. There is so much depth into it and there is life in it. This is one of those films that cannot be missed at any cost. It is an experience that needs to be cherished by every film lover. Leave everything and just book your ticket now. Highly recommended.

Verdict: Breathtaking.
