Raj Tharun has been one of the few heroes who is able to find a niche audience for himself with his initial films. But he is losing his market, one film at a time, due to his script selection, lately. He is trying his luck again with Iddari Lokham Okate and this Dil Raju is presenting the film. Let's see how it is ...
The story follows a young woman, Varsha (Shalini Pandey) who likes to live life on her own terms. She feels suffocated when a person, Rahul (Raja) who loves her, tries to corner her to marry him. She accidentally meets Mahi (Raj Tharun), as he displays the old photograph that she doesn't have with her at an exhibition. She identifies him as her childhood friend and they both connect. But Mahi has a heart condition. You can easily predict, what happens next.
The film doesn't have a solid performance either of the two lead casts. Raj Tharun tried something new from his usual but he looked more suffocated than natural in this slow and moody role. Shalini Pandey could really come up with a strong performance either as her character dilly-dallied between looking cute and strong. The major fault is in writing and execution. Cinematography is easy on the eye and editing is good. But music by Mickey J Mayer doesn't stick with you at all.
Love stories or pure romances still find audiences as love is known as the purest form of emotion that anyone can really express and feel. But when a plot feels forced and convoluted rather than organic and natural, what would you call such a romance? A quick cash-grab maybe! Also, if an actress is asked to emote more and look completely artificial when she looks more pretty in a natural look, what should that creativity be called? A very misogynistic outlook maybe! This film suffers from such old school thoughts.
A romance blossoms when two people meet and connect. We love to watch such romances or enjoy such stories while listening to them because they connect with us. They try to help us live our fantasy or re-live those early memories of love. But if love stories try to drag on and just simply crush every element of interest in us? They just end up like Iddari Lokham Okate. Lifeless and pathetic to the core.
Bottom line: Drags the Feels!
