You can't even turn off your eyes. Wonderful, Hilarious & Touching.

Oopiri/Thozha:

Having said that it is an Official adaption of a great French Movie "The Intouchables" which is truly inspired from Philippe Pozzo di Borgo and his French-Algerian caregiver Abdel Sellou, director Vamsi Paidipally has taken utmost care in rewriting it in Indianised style so that it can sync with the audience here. I won't say the plot because those who watched the French or English version they would have known it and at-least it would be a surprise for those who didn't watch it. So let us maintain that.

First of all it is first of its kind film for our South film industry. The Brother Bonding, BroCode, Bromance, BroComedy between Karthi & Nagarjuna are simply amazing. I truly wonder Nagarjuna has become too choosy in selecting scripts after his historical debacle Bhai, he even promised to audience he will never make such films and now with this movie he is sticking srongly to his word. People might think it is an easy role for Nagarjuna to just sit & act on a wheel chair, but it is really difficult to act like this with not even a bit of movement in his hands or legs. He has passionately acted in this film and he enjoyed acting in this role. Literally he gave meaning to this role. He is definitely a inspiration to Senior & younger generation heroes now. This film makes Karthi's straight debut in Tollywood, he did a splendid job and especially his comic timing is so funny at times. With this, his place will also be cemented here too. No doubt now he will be flooded with many offers here. Tammanah, Prakash raj, Jayasudha, Ali, Gabriella & Kalpana have got apt roles. Even tammanah's own dubbing is very good in the movie.

Vamsi rediscovered himself by beautifully adapting the story. There is a entirely a contrast between this movie & his previous works. He has done a tremendous work for this film. Of course comparisons from everywhere starts because it is a adaption but he delivered his best effort. Dialogues by Abburi are heart touching. Each and every scene has class performance that makes you cry & laugh at a time. It is impossible to make a film like this,it is just PVP Cinema has handpicked all the technicians & cast properly and has done a commendable job. Music by Gopi Sunder is splendid & situational. The only odd in the movie is, length of the film and second half narration is bit slow.

Great story, great star cast, great cameos(Surprise !!), great technicians & great crew has made Oopiri watchable. If you ask me to define Oopiri film, my answer goes likes this: "Oopiri is celebration of life, celebration of companionship, celebration of friendship, celebration of love, celebration of emotions and the list goes on... " I cannot say more, the film must be experienced.
