Hope Tollywood makes more such films!
22 November 2018 | by tdanjiSee all my reviews

Oopiri - a differently abled movie that tugs at your heart strings. Vamsi Paidipally needs to be added to the list of directors who are carving out new paths in Tollywood. Mind you, this ain't no typical indie film. It has all the elements of commercial cinema, but takes a new look at the mainstream paradigm. Initially, I thought that they could have cast a Telugu actor instead of Karthi - someone like a Allu Arjun, or a Nani. But, by the end w/o doubt, Karthi brings the much needed fresh authenticity to the character. With Nagarjuna, the Akkineni gene shows throughout the film. A few quibbles, here and there, fall by the wayside due to the high quality of filmmaking!
