Oka College Story, which was delayed for a long time due to financial problem, has finally hit the marquee last Friday. Directed by T Prabhakar, the movie stars Sravan and Monal Gajjar in lead roles. The film is a decent entertainer with a beautiful message to all college going students.
Oka College Story is romance drama and the director has managed to include all mass masala elements in it. The lead actors' performance, a couple of comedy tracks and brilliant camera work are the highlights of the film. The biggest drawback of the movie is its dragging narration at some places.
The director, who penned the story, screenplay for the movie, has chosen an excellent subject, but has failed to express what he wanted through this film. He neither has a perfect story, nor a gripping screenplay to move the story. He has tried to show how ragging can be done and different ways of ragging. At times, we feel that it is more of torturing than ragging. He has also failed to tap out good performance from the artistes. All he wants to show is that ragging is bad, but the viewers feel ragged by him!
The film begins with the students entering the CMR Medical College with a hope of becoming doctors. Surya (Sravan), Sindhu (Monal Gajjar), Maska Ramachandra Murthy, Kamesh, Rajesh, Rama and Rajkumar are good friends. Manohar (Manohar) is a senior student, who rags the juniors. Manohar's father is a minister and even the college management does not dare to take action against him. Once, Surya complaints against Manohar. In a bid to take revenge on him, Manohar kidnaps Surya's lover Sindhu.
