iQlikmovies Review: 2.5/5
Prabhu (Sanjay Kumar) and Venkata Lakshmi (Nitya Shetty) are childhood friends. Prabhu loves Venkata Lakshmi right from his childhood. When they develop feelings for each other, Krish (Vishwant) enters into their lives all of a sudden. He falls for Venkata Lakshmi too. Before Venkata Lakshmi tries to make a choice between Prabhu and Krish, she goes missing.
Then comes the inspector who tries the unravel the mystery of Venkata Lakshmi's missing case. What happened to Venkata Lakshmi? Where did she go? Whom will she choose in between Prabhu and Krish? forms the main story.
Brahmaji's son Sanjay Kumar has given a neat performance. His debut act was good. He should improve a bit in the emotional and romantic sequences. Vishwant looked apt for his role. He did it with ease. The experience of working in quite a few films helped him to improve his skills.
Nitya Shetty looked cute as a village girl. Her expressions and performance were good too. Brahmaji owned the character of the police offer and gave his best to it. Rest others performed according to their capabilities.
Director Chendu wrote this triangular love story with a few interesting twists and turns. The screenplay is good but there are a few lags in the proceedings of the film. The music and background score composed by Praveen Lakkaraju is okay.
The cinematography is good. The village visuals got showcased in a beautiful way. The editing is pretty average and there are few scenes that come at wrong timings. The production values were good.
Director Chendu tried to portray the simple story with a few twists and turns. Though it might have looked good on paper, he didn't get entirely succeeded in showcasing it on the big screen. Thus, O Pitta Katha remains as a plain drama from the beginning to the end. But there are a few comedy scenes in the film which provide good laughs.
The lead actors did justice to their roles but it was the story of the film which is a bit disappointing. Barring a few twists and comedy scenes, there is nothing much to talk about the film.
Editing could have been better
Lack of mass-appealing elements
Final Verdict: This Pitta Katha is a partly boring and partly engaging drama
