Okkadu Migiladu Review :

Manchu Manoj and Anisha Ambrose starrer Okkade Migiladu, directed by Ajay Andrews Nuthakki has hit the theaters today. The film is a story of Tamil Sri Lankan refugees and the atrocities inflicted on them on both sides of the border. Gopi Mohan penned the screenplay for the movie. Let’s see the storyline.


Story: Surya (Manchu Manoj) is a student who fights against the alleged suicides of his friends. The cops arrest Surya and his friends, and they are being tortured in a very violent way to make them sign for the false case of selling the drugs.  Later they transferred to a rural police station, Surya narrate his tale to an empathetic police man Sivaji (Posani Krishna Murali).  Sivaji tries to find out the truth from Surya who then shares the startling truth that he is a Sri Lakan Tamil refugee and reveals how he drew inspiration from LTTE leader Peter (Manchu Manoj) fight against the atrocities committed by the Srilankan Army.  What is the story of Peter? What will Surya do now? How will he come out from this mess? How are they connected? To get these answer, one should watch the movie on silver screen.

Plus Points:

  • Manchu Manoj
  • Story

Minus Points:

  • Screenplay
  • Violence
  • Lack of commercial elements
  • Editing
  • Tamil flavor

Performance:  Ajay Andrews Nuthakki designed the characterization of Manchu Manoj to suit his body language. Manchu Manoj  does a brilliant job in both different roles. He impresses the masses with his ultra aggressive performance and expressions as LTTE leader and also as a student who fights for the justice.  His expressions, body languages and way of dialogues delivery deserve lot of applause. Anisha Ambrose   impresses the audiences by her performance and glamour.  She got very less screen space but performs well in the role of Journalist. Suhasini Maniratnam is as usual. Jennifer, Milnd Gunaji, Posani Krishna Murali  and other perform accordingly.


Technical: The storyline  of the film is impressive but Screenplay is mediocre. The dialogues are good. The BGM is impressive.  The music is in the tune with the proceedings. The  Cinema work by V.K.Ramaraju is  huge asset. The war episodes and boat episodes have come out very well but there are extra dose of action and violence in the film. The editing by Karthik Srinivas is ok but it could have been much better. Art department did a very nice job. Production values are good.


Analysis:  Okkadu Migiladu is all about the struggles of Srilankan Tamilians. The director concentrated more on elevating the heroism of Manchu Manoj at the expense of  screenplay and direction. He became fail to utilize the performance skills of other talented stars like Posani, Suhasini and Murali Mohan. There are neither surprising moments nor boring moments in the film. The film half is loaded with violence and in the second director focuses on showing the passage of Srilankan refugees to India. There is no any surprise element in the movie.
