The film is directed by Vamsi Paidipally.
The bilingual Oopiri releases today, and it stars Nagarjuna, Karthi and Tamannaah Bhatia. It's an official remake of the French film The Intouchables.
Our South critic, H. Shivkumar, is watching the film and here is what he has to say...
"The much anticipated comedy drama Oopiri is finally here. It stars Karthi and Nagarjuna and both of them truly what makes this movie. Oopiri is all about collision of two people from two very different worlds. Srinu is a small time thief and criminal, who gets out of jail on parole. He has to do social work to maintain good conduct and get full release. After trying several places, he finally comes to Vikram Aditya's house. Vikram Aditya played by Nagarjuna is an ultra rich businessman, who is completely paralysed from waist down. He needs a fulltime caretaker to take care of his basic needs. He finds something special in Srinu and decides to hire him. The rest of the first half is all about the fun that unfolds when the simpleton Srinu bonds with the complex minded billionaire in a very unexpected way.
It is Karthi who is the real star of the film and creates a laughter riot throughout the first half. The scenes of bonding between him and Nagarjuna are really fantastic. Nagarjuna's transformation from a sad and morose man to a confident and happy man is amazing. The highlight is that as Nagarjuna's character undergoes change, so does Karthi's. Oopiri stands out from other comedy films in the fact that it has plenty of inspiring, emotional and thought provoking moments whose meaning goes much deeper than the film itself."
