Allari Naresh’s new movie, Aa Okkati Adakku, hit the big screens today amid a decent buzz. Read our review to know how the film fares.


Ganapathi (Allari Naresh), a government officer, is desperate to get married and has been searching for a suitable bride for years. To accomplish his mission, he joins Happy Matrimony and meets Sidhi (Faria Abdullah). While Ganapathi envisions her as his future partner, she does not share the same sentiment. As the days pass, a shocking truth about Sidhi unravels. The revelation sheds light on Sidhi’s true identity. Did Ganapathi find a soulmate? The answer lies in what unfolds on the big screen.

Plus Points:

Allari Naresh returns to his comedic roots with finesse, showcasing impeccable timing and delivering a commendable performance.

Faria Abdullah impresses in her role, embracing a complex, grey-shaded character that deserves recognition.

Supporting actors such as Vennela Kishore, Harsh Chemudu, and Jamie Lever contribute significantly to the film’s humour, providing much-needed comic relief throughout.

The film reflects the experiences of modern families, especially regarding marriage. It showcases scenes that explore the traditions and expectations surrounding marriage in society today.

Minus Points:

The film’s focus on delivering a message overshadows its comedic elements, missing chances for humour, especially with Allari Naresh’s talent.

In the second half, the movie shifts towards serious themes, losing some of the comedic charm of the first half, which might not engage audiences as much.

Certain characters like Kalpa Latha and Jamie Lever could have been used to create stronger emotional connections, and the climax feels forced, lacking depth.

Harsha Chemudu and Vennela Kishore could have had more screen time for additional laughs. Additionally, ‘just okay’ songs and pacing issues in both halves weaken the film’s overall impact.

Technical Aspects:

Debutant director Malli Ankam’s attempt to blend comedy with a social message is admirable but falls short due to a lack of finesse in the screenplay. However, the film provides some insight into the workings of matrimonial platforms, offering a degree of awareness.

Abburi Ravi’s dialogues lack the requisite punch, and while the cinematography by Suryaa and music by Gopi Sundar meet acceptable standards, editing by Chota K Prasad leaves much to be desired. Nonetheless, the production values are commendable.


On the whole, Aa Okkati Adakku delivers moments of humour and a relevant social message. While the ensemble cast, including Allari Naresh, Faria Abdullah, Harsha Chemudu, Vennela Kishore, and Jamie Lever, entertains with their performances, the film’s execution falls short of expectations. Pacing issues and a lackluster climax may disappoint viewers expecting more. It’s advisable to temper expectations when considering watching this film.
