The first half is high on entertainment while the screenplay falls short, especially in the second half. The narration too isn’t very interesting and the hurried climax leaves you disappointed.

Movie Review: After the debacle of his last film, "Shakti", NTR Jr stars in Surender Reddy's "Oosaravelli" that released amidst much hype and expectations.

Tony (NTR Jr) a goon in Mumbai, who will do anything for money, meets Niharika (Tamannaah) in Kashmir under unusual circumstances - the two are kidnapped by terrorists. Tony saves her and inevitably falls in love with her. Later, the two meet in Hyderabad again, where Niharika works as a fashion designer. Tony learns that Niharika is in love with Rakesh, a politician's son. But Tony continues to pursue Niharika and even convinces her that her love for Rakesh is not true. Meanwhile, Tony is wanted by the police and mafia don, Ajju Bhai (Prakah Raj). What happens next forms the rest of the story.

Any viewer's first grouse with the film will be that the title, "Oosaravelli" (chameleon) doesn't suit the film's subject. Director Surender Reddy, who tasted success with his last outing, "Kick", which was an out-and-out entertainer, experimented with action in "Oosaravelli", only to disappoint. The screenplay falls short, especially in the second half of the film. The narration too isn't very interesting and the hurried climax leaves you disappointed. The first half of the film is high on entertainment and the second overdoses on action. Audiences who usually expect power-packed dialogues from NTR Jr in his films will be dejected. Both, director Surender Reddy and script writer Vakkantham Vamsi fail to get a grip on the story.

When it comes to performances, NTR Jr steals the show in the first half. In most scenes, he underplays his emotions and manages to evoke some laughs. But towards the end of the movie, his act gets inconsistent and he doesn't emote too well either. Usually a natural actor, his scenes seem too contrived in this film. Tamannah and Payal Ghosh do justice to their roles.

This is the first time that a senior actor like Prakash Raj is wasted in a big film. Director Surender Reddy brings in a whole lot of actors for the comedy sequences - Raghu Babu, Jayaprakash, Duvvasi, MS Narayana and Vidyut - but none of them make an impact, save in a few scenes. Devi Sri Prasad's music is easy on the ear, but not effective on screen since the cinematography is above average. Reddy's usually stylish presentation is missing in "Oosaravalli. In this one, the expectations exceeded the results.
