Mega princess Niharika is about to test her luck in tollywood with her debut film ‘Oka Manasu’. Naga Shourya is playing the protagonist. Director Rama Raju is waiting for a commercial success though he earned good name with his previous film ‘Mallela Theeramlo Sirimalle Puvvu’. Lets get into the review!
Surya (Shourya) and Sandhya (Niharika) gradually falls in love and try to keep each other happy. Surya’s interest towards politics disturbs Sandhya. Both decides to part but could not leave because of their deep rooted love. Then comes a situation where Surya must choose between his love and politics. Rest of the story is about how the couple deal with further circumstances and whether they compromise for each other in the end.
Naga Shourya has lived in his character and excelled at acting compared to his previous films. Niharika, though lacked expressions at few scenes, managed to pull off her role well. Rao Ramesh, Srinivas Avasarala and Tanikella Bharani have done justice to their roles.
