OKOK – Oru Kal Oru Kannadi
OKOK Oru Kal Oru Kannadi (English: A Stone, A Mirror) abbreviated as OKOK is a 2012 Tamil romantic comedy film written and directed by M. Rajesh.It stars producer Udhayanidhi Stalin, in his acting debut, Hansika Motwani and Santhanam.
The movie starts with a flashback where Saravanan (Uday) and Parthasarathy (Santhanam) work at a popular multiplex and are close buddies. Saravanan’s mother (Saranya) is innocent and strives hard for over twenty years to get his graduation, since it is her husband’s (Azhagam Perumal) dream desire. One day, Saravanan sees Meera (Hansika) at a traffic signal and it is love at first sight for him. He desperately runs behind her to win over her heart. He even takes the help of his friend Partha. But all their plans fail. As it happens, it is a cat and mouse game between the two. But things take a turn and Meera’s wedding gets fixed with an industrialist’s son.
As we are aware in most Tamil movies, the heroine is the anchor. Thus, since Udhayanidhi Stalin payed such a weak role, the movie did not reach the the of expectation that was set especially with the trailer and the songs. Also the actor does not have the caliber or the attraction.
The main actress Hansika Motwani is not really my favorite as her actions do not coordinate with her dialog. But in this movie even she seemed to have done better than the main actor. He should stick to production.
The only plus point was Charanya and Santhanam’s acting. They kept the movie going although most parts were very predictable and draggy. I don’t see how this movie was seen to a super hit!
