Director A.M Jothikrishna, who had introduced the likes of Shriya Saran, Tamanna and Ileana into film world, has chosen to launch himself as an actor through Oo La La La.
‘Oo La La La‘, according to the title card, is nothing but Oorvasi, Latha, Lalitha and Lavanya. But the explanation seems to be just a gimmick as it has no relevance to the storyline.
Surya (Jothikrishna) is your usual happy-go-lucky guy who moves around and enjoys life using his father’s hard earned money. His only goal in life is to have lot of girlfriends but no girl is interested in him. He nevertheless relentlessly follows girls.
Things take a turn when he meets Preethi (Divya Bhandari), who works in a coffee shop. His overtures to woo fetch some result, as the girl accepts to be a friend. Surya is on cloud nine and goes around with the girl. Her friendship proves to be useful to Surya, as girls start getting attracted towards him.
Preethi meanwhile, falls for Surya and decides to take the relationship further. But she is shocked when she finds that Surya is using her as a bait to attract other girls. She also gets humiliated after her kissing Surya has been exposed to many through an MMS. Preethi gets angry and moves away.
Surya soon realises his mistake and tries to console Preethi. But she is stubborn in her decision.
Do they come together again?
The storyline gives some scope for emotional drama and interesting viewing. All that a director has to do is to create a few watchable scenes to portray the build up to love, the period of romance, break up and the reunion. Director Jothikrishna has grossly failed in this. Worse, the actor Jothikrishna finds it difficult to suit the role. The script has no life and the hero has not potential to liven up. Result? A damp squib.
Detailing the failures of Jothikrishna as an actor and director would be a futile exercise as most of the film has been irritating. The director has tried to spice up things with mixing up comical element through out the film but it hasn’t fetched any good result, as the comical sense is sorely missing.
That the movie getting into serious mode in the second half doesn’t help either. It becomes afutile attempt as he sequences fail to impress in any manner.
Jothikrishna fails to make an impression despite choosing an easy He has chosen an easy role to make an entry. He has a long way to go in terms of dancing and emoting.
Divya Bhandari looks good on screen and emotes well. Ganja Karuppu‘s comedy is cheap and unimaginative.
Sekar Chandra’s music is forgettable.
Oo La La La is just another fare that hits the halls and disappears without making any mark.
