Okkadu Migiladu Review

Okkadu Migiladu is an honest attempt to portray the realistic struggle of migrants in Sri Lanka. But the director amateurishly handled it and made it as a serious documentary which does not appeal to the regular audience. 1.5 out of 5 (Poor, A Few Good Parts) Okkadu Migiladu NOWRUNNING REVIEW | NR (NOWRUNNING)

Surya (Manchu Manoj) is a Student Leader who takes up the cause of Three Rape Victims who commit suicide. Two sons of a minister are involved and Surya is in the pursuit of pinning them down. But a fake case of smuggling was slapped on him and was sent behind the bars. How did he escape? What is the relation between Surya and Peter from Sri Lanka? forms the rest.

Manoj is seen in two serious roles in the film. While his act in the role of Surya is natural, he sounded a bit dramatic in Peter's Role. Director Ajay Andrews also was seen in a crucial role but he appeared misfit. Posani is underused in the role of a Police Constable. Anisha Ambrose is okay in the role of a journalist and her role has got no significance. Suhasini, Milind Gunaji, and Banerjee are good in their roles.

The director had linked the struggle of migrants in Sri Lanka and the story in 2017 in Okkadu Migiladu. It is a realistic story about LTTE. The battle scenes in the flashback are good. But the movie gives are feeling of a documentary as the director tried to stuff too much of drama and emotion after Peter's entry before the interval. Excessive violence, preaching dialogues, sentiment overdose test the patience of the audience and ensures that they are not connected to the film. Even though, the intent is good, the director failed to present it as a film.

There are no songs in the film but bit songs are appealing and enhance the mood of the film. The background score by Siva Nandigam suits the mood of the film. Cinematography by VK Ramaraju is an asset for the film. Editing by Karthika Srinivas is very much disappointing, especially in the second half. Production Values are disappointing as the makers have chosen to have more than half of the film visuals from Tamil film, Ravana Desam.

Finally, Okkadu Migiladu is an honest attempt to portray the realistic struggle of migrants in Sri Lanka. But the director amateurishly handled it and made it as a serious documentary which does not appeal to the regular audience.
