Tamil Movie Review

Oh Manapenne movie review


Karthik (Harish Kalyan) is a happy go lucky youth who takes things very easy in life. He dreams of becoming a chef. Seeing his carefree attitude, his father decides to get him married and fixes his alliance with a career oriented girl called Shurthi (Priya Bhavani Shankar).

To Karthik’s bad luck, Shruthi reveals to him that she is not interested in getting married and wants to start a food truck business. A disappointed Karthik, leaves the scenario and decides to move on in life and finds yet another girl in a well to do family.

But there too, he gets disappointed as his would be father in law asks him to start up his own business first and then ask for his daughter’s hand. Left with no choice, Karthik seeks Shruthi’s help and starts a food truck business in partnership.

As expected, cupid strikes between the two who now have different personal goals. Rest of the story is as to how this couple solve their individual problems and get united in the end.


One of the brightest asset of the film is undoubtedly the freshness. Though the movie is the remake of the Telugu flick Pelli Choopulu, it has been adapted well for the Tamil audience by director Kaarthik Sundar.

Harish Kalyan is superb as the carefree Karthik. The way he has carried the character is remarkable. Priya Bhavani Shankar plays a strong willed independent girl and is perfect fit for the role.

The chemistry between the lead pair is one of the major strengths of the movie. Music by Vishal Chandrasekhar is breezy. Cinematography by Krishnan Vasant is colourful. Though the movie follows a predictable path, it keeps the audience engaged.

Rating 3.7/5
