Bommarillu Bhaskar has made his comeback to direction two years after his failed attempt Orange in 2010. For his latest directorial venutre Ongole Gitta, he has cast Ram and Kriti Kharbanda, who are looking for a big break of their career. He has chosen a mass masala subject for the movie and seems to be successful in his attempt to impress the audience.
Ongole Gitta is a romantic-action entertainer with all commercial ingredients to woo the mass audience. Ram and Prakash Raj's excellent performances are the main highlights of the film. GV Prakash Kumar's music, Mani Sharma's background, A Venkatesh's cinematography, Kishore Das and Raghu Babu's humour, good choreography of fights and dance sequences are its other attractions.
Bhaskar has chosen a simple storyline, which is set in the backdrop of a mirchi yard, but he made it interesting by giving it a realistic approach without diluting commercial aspects. The first half of the film has nothing much to boast about, but it impresses you with a few romantic songs, fights and comedy. After the interval, the film goes into flashback mode. But the story gets struck in the second half with dragging narration. The fight in the climax is superb.
White (Ram) is a daring and dynamic mirchi trader in Ongole Mirchi yard. He falls in love with Sandhya (Kriti Kharbandha), the daughter of the chairman of the yard Adikesavulu (Prakash Raj) and asks his permission to marry her. Meanwhile, the local MLA (Ahuthi Prasad) hatches a conspiracy to shift the market yard to a new location for his own personal gains. What happens next will form the crux of the film.
