Oka Manasu Movie Story:

Oka Manasu is a perfect romantic tale. Sandhya (Niharika) is a doctor, while Surya (Naga Shaurya) is the son of a politician. Naga Shourya will be seen as Surya and Rao Ramesh as his father. They both fall in love. But, Sandhya doesn’t like politics and politicians. What happens next forms the rest of the story. We have seen many Mega Hero’s till now but for the first time, Niharika is the female actress coming into film industry from Mega family.

Oka Manasu Movie Review:

Mega princess Niharika Konidela who made her acting debut with “Oka Manasu” has done justice to her role. She impresses the viewers in her first attempt. Naga Shourya has delivered decent performance, which is the highlight of the film. Niharika is looking good on screen, like a next door girl. The performances of Rao Ramesh, Krishna Bhagavan, Srinivas Avasarala and Vennela Kishore are assets of the movie.

The movie failed to impress the audience with slow narration and a pointless screenplay that makes no sense in many parts. The first half of the film has some romantic and comedy scenes that keep the viewers engaged, but the slow-paced narration makes it a boring watch. The slow-paced narration in the second half too and it turned out to be a big torture. The movie is poetic but doesn’t connect to the heart.
