Vishwak Sen has done some very successful films in his career and has created a good craze for himself. His new film is Ori Devuda. Read our review to find out if the film has any juice in it or not.
Arjun(Vishwak Sen) and Anu(Mithila Parkar) are childhood friends who get married. But after a while, Arjun falls for his school senior Meera(Asha Bhatt) and applies for divorce. When things get going for Arjun, Anu faints in the court due to a mythological issue created by God(Venkatesh) who gives a second chance to Arjun to correct things. Did Arjun make use of it, is the story?
Vishwak Sen makes a U-Turn from his mass roles and plays a decent character. For this, he has to go a notch low and he does it wonderfully. His romance with Mithila and comedy with Vekatesh is good. Senior hero Venkatesh plays the role of a God and he makes his presence felt. Mithila Parkar is great in her role of a wife. Rahul Rama krishna was als good. Asha Bhatt who also plays another lead was impressive.
Ori Devuda is the remake of the Tamil hit Oh My Kadavule. The film has been directed by Ashwin Marimuthu and he has done a decent job with the remake. The romance is good and the fun scenes with Venkatesh and Vishwak Sen are handled nicely.
There are also some amusing sequences in which the protagonist tests the quality of toilet commodes. The first half of the film moves quickly, with marriage, the introduction of the third person, and divorce. The interval bang also adds a new dimension to the proceedings. But the narration is quite slow and tests the patience in many scenes.
The music by Leon James is pleasant to listen to. Gundellona and Avunanava songs stand out and add impact to the drama. The camerawork by Vidhu Ayyana is fair. The production values are decent. For those who have not seen the original, Ori Devuda will impress but those who have seen it, all we say is take it easy.
Bottom Line – Passable Fantasy Drama
