    Osthe Movie Review

    By Ramchander

    Osthe is an upgraded version of masala movies of 70s and 80s era. To be precise, it is a old wine in new bottle, where the audience get to see the hero thrashing the baddies black and blue and proving that he is the undisputed king. Being a remake of Bollywood blockbuster Dabangg, the movie has been made with necessary changes to cater the Tamil audience. Read on for Osthe review.

    Osthe Velan (Simbu), a cop, is corrupted but has an image of Robinhood – he is proud of it. He tries to make money at every given opportunity by hook or crook. Though, he is liked by the public, it is not the same at his home, as his father (Nassar) and elder brother (Githan Ramesh) hate him. The only person, who showers love upon him, is his mother, which is played by Revathi.

    Velan falls in love with potter girl Neduvaali (Richa Gangopadhyay) but she is not ready to leave her drunkard father (Ganesh). However, after her father passes away, she ties the knot with him and this eventually troubles his relationship with his father and brother. On the other end, baddie played by Sonu Sood utilises their family troubles for personal again, as he is a rival of Velan. The rest of the story is about their fight for one-upmanship.

    Silambarasan's scorching presence is the major highlight of Osthe. His personality, his dialogue delivery in Thiruveneli dialect and his action scenes especially when he displays his chiseled body in the climax are the attracting features of the movie. Richa Gangopadhyay is excellent in her role. Her costumes and dressings sense should be praised. Her chemistry with Simbu works big time. Sonu Sood and Santhanam are good. Revathi, Jetham Ramesh and others have done justice to their roles. And Mallika Sherawat comes there to take you by storm!

    In technical front, S Thaman's songs are good and his background has also blended with the flow. Gopinath's cinematography is good. Director Dharani has penned the screenplay to fit the taste of the native audience. However, there are quite a few errors but it will hardly bother the audience, if they are in with the flow.

    Osthe has all the successful ingredients to keep you glued till the end. Simbu's energetic performance and the mass-masala story are enough to keep you entertained all through. The movie is loud, zany, larger-than-life but nonsensical. Nonetheless, entertainment is guaranteed.
