Naga Shourya, Rashi Khanna, Avasarala and others
Starring Naga Shourya and newcomer Rashi Khanna in the lead roles, the film's basic line is taken from 'Cyrano de Bergerac', a French comedy drama.
Like in the popular French drama, a guy takes the help of another man in courting a woman. 'Oohalu Gusagusalade' is told in lighter manner. It has good writing and crackling romantic scenes with soothing music.
Uday (Srinivasa Avasarala) is the owner of Uday TV. Marriage and commitment is not for him, this irks his family. He gets the photo of Prabhavathi (Raashi Khanna) and it's love at first sight.
Since Uday does not know how to handle situations concerning women. So he takes the help of his employee, Venky (Naga Shourya). This guy is good at dealing with women.
With Venky's guidance Uday's romantic life starts. Prabhavathi falls for Uday. At this point, Venky sees Prabhavathi and trouble begins. What is it?
What is the jolt that Venky suffers? All this is the plot of the film.
Srinivasa Avasarala has excelled in his role. He is amazing in the second half. Naga Shourya performs well. Raashi Khanna is perfect for the role of Prabhavathi.
The film has good scripting with some witty lines. Songs by Kalyani Koduri are melodious.
Though the first half of the film gets slightly boring in the beginning, the second half is hilarious. Technical aspects like cinematography and editing are okay. It?s a good effort by the director. Comedy overshadows the flaws. Second half of the film could have been better. Srinivasa Avasarala does a neat job.
Overall it is comedy that saves the film.
Verdict: Good fun
