Classy, visually stunning and refreshing – these three words describe the teaser of Vamsi Paidipally’s Telugu film Oopiri, and it’s Tamil version Thozha. With Nagarjuna in the lead, this will be Karthi’s foray into Telugu cinema after having starred in various Tamil movies. Tamannaah also features in this ambitious project.
The film’s fresh background score has been composed by Gopi Sunder, while the cinematography is by P. S Vinod. Here’s what we know from the teaser:
1. An official remake of the French film, The Intouchables, the video of both versions of the film (Telugu and Tamil) look promising, and it looks it’ll be a faithful remake of the original.
2. Let’s not forget that the movie has been tailor-made to suit the sensibilities of the local audience. This includes offering glimpses of the contrasting lifestyles of the lead characters.
3. While Nagarjuna is said to play the role of a millionaire, Karthi is seen portraying the role of an ex-culprit released from prison.
4. The action quotient of the film is sure to be high. The teaser has only one dialogue and yet looks good for the film to seem to be high on comedy as well.
5. The film tells the story of a quadriplegic millionaire (played by Nagarjuna) and the bond he shares with his caretaker (Karthi). Tamannaah is said to play the role of the millionaire’s sister.
Shot extensively in Paris, this film also features Anushka Shetty and Shriya Saran in cameo roles. You can watch the teasers of the film here:
