Aa Okkati Adakku Story

Ganapathy (Allari Naresh) is a government employee who delays his wedding due to his family responsibilities. A time comes in his life when no one is interested in marrying him. Left with no choice, he enrols at a matrimonial site and falls for Siddhi (Faria Abdullah). Impressed with her, Ganapathy proposes marriage to Siddhi but she rejects him right away. When Ganapathy is dealing with his breakup, news comes out that Siddhi is a cheat who enrols in matrimony websites and dupes people. How Ganapathy handles two crazy situations and ends up tying the knot is the basic story of the film.

Aa Okkati Adakku Review

The promos for Aa Okkati Adakku showcased that comedy is going to be the main forte of the film. But the sad part is that the film is a serious drama about how innocent youth are getting cheated in the name of matrimonial sites. So, all those who enter the film thinking it is a comedy will be fooled big time.

Malli Ankam makes his debut as a director with this film, and his storyline is quite contemporary, but the way he has presented it is quite stale. There is hardly any comedy in the second half and the proceedings are very slow and take a lot of time to register on the audience. The first half of the film has some comedy and the way Allari Naresh is introduced is quite good in the film.

Jamie Lever makes her Telugu debut in the film and is quite impressive in her role. The narrative design of her interactions with Allari Naresh is well done. However, the reason Allari Naresh remains a bachelor is outright silly in the film. The lack of proper emotions is also one of the biggest drawbacks of Aa Okkati Adakku.

The film falters in many areas, and after a point, its single-point agenda is to showcase the dark side of matrimonial websites and how the youth are getting cheated through them. The director, Mallik, goes so deep into these issues that the lightheartedness of the film is lost in translation.

Allari Naresh plays his role quite sincerely and ably suits the role of an ageing bachelor. His performance holds your attention for the most part. Faria Abdullah looks cute, gets an important role, and does well in her character. As said earlier, Jamie Lever is amazing in the film.

Vennela Kishore is neat in his limited role, and a scene on a dining table featuring Kishore is hilarious. The music by Gopi Sundar is disappointing and his BGM is even worse. The production values of the film are inadequate but the camerawork is impressive. There are a few scenes that should have been edited out but that does not happen in the second half.

The film loses its track midway and becomes a documentary of sorts. Those who wanted to see Allari Naresh in an out-and-out comedy only get a few laughs, and that too in the first half only. The rest is a boring drama that lacks basic depth.


Aa Okkati Adakku Verdict

On the whole, Aa Okkati Adakku is a film with more drama than comedy. The second half falters big time, and things end on an over-the-top note. Allari Naresh's sincere performance is the only solace, and the comedy also fails to evoke enough laughs making this film a bland and boring watch this weekend.
