Story: Uday (Siddharth) is the son of a millionaire and he leads a lavish life. While celebrating New Year"s Day, he meets an orthodox girl called Sandhya (Shamili). He falls in love with her. How he struggles to get her love will form the story of the movie.
PLUS: Siddhartha takes the cake in making the film Oye very interesting. The entire responsibility of the film is borne by him alone. His character is etched with different emotions. Chivalrous in the beginning, jovial in the middle, serious lover after that and a true lover, who wants to see a smile in his ladylove"s face. He emotes all the expressions perfectly.
Music by Yuvan Shankar Raja is a highlight of the movie. Most of the songs are rocking and would impress the present generation youth. Camera work is another highlight of the movie. The cinematographer is able to capture the beauty of different locales lively on the celluloid.
Athough the film Oye is a tragic love story, the director is able to make the the audiences sit tight in their seats till the end of the film. Comedy by Sunil, Tanikella Bharani and Krishnudu is rocking. Another comedy track with Ali and Master Bharat with a satire on real estate business also makes the funny bones of audiences tickle for some time.
MINUS: Shamili does not suit the character of traditional girl. Being a first timer, she has failed to be a perfect match to Siddhartha. Though the film has situational comedy, some scenes appear boring. Had the climax been not tragedy, the film would have been good and the director should have ended it with some kind of miracle and making the heroine alive to attract the audiences.
REMARKS: Though Siddhartha has given great performance all through the film, the tragic end of the film plays the spoilsport. The commercial success of the film faces a drawback with the sad ending of the movie.
