3.2 out of 5 (Good)
Oohalu Gusagusalade is that kind of Rom-com which will entertain you through out even though it has some flaws. However, the kind of comedy will only appeal to the A class audience.

Uday (Srinivas Avasarala) is the owner of Uday Television Channel who has a strange aversion for woman and marriage. Venky (Naga Shourya) is his employee who gets along very easily with women. One fine day, Uday gets the photograph of Prabhavathi (Raashi Khanna) and immediately starts liking her. Uday takes the help of Venky in wooing her and finally Prabhavathi starts responding. It was then Venky sees her and gets a shock. He is trampled in a situation where he had to choose between his love and his dream job. That forms the gist of the story.
Coming to the performances part, Cast is one of the main assets of the film. Srinivas Avasarala carried out the major part of the film on his shoulders with his comedy timing. Naga Shourya is a perfect fit in to the character with his boyish looks. Raashi Khanna is impressive with her cute looks and expressive eyes. Posani and Rao Ramesh did their parts to the required levels.
Srinivas Avasarala for the first time has directed and written a film. He succeed as writer but the flaws in direction and screenplay are glaring. However it can be said that in the flow of the film and the comedy, most of the flaws are managed.
Kalyani Koduri gets a good chance after a long time and he did perfect justice to both the songs and back ground music. However songs are misplaced in the first half. Venkat C. Dileep's cinematography is decent. Editor is the biggest culprit for leaving out several unnecessary parts.
Finally, Oohalu Gusagusalade is that kind of Rom-com which will entertain you through out even though it has some flaws. However, the kind of comedy will only appeal to the A class audience.
