Okka Magaadu getting repeat audiences, YVS Chowdary

Producer-director YVS Chowdary today arranged a press meet at his residence to brief the web media about the real performance of his latest film Okka Magaadu, starring Nandamuri Balakrishna. "I directed seven films so far. OM is the fourth one on our Bommarillu banner. There were unprecedented expectations on the film for the last one year, which we couldn't help. Particularly for the last three months, there was huge political coloring the project, coupled with high expectations and imagination about the subject. The film got released on January 10 th night itself at various places in the state. Prior to the release of the film, film critics, audiences and fans thought of the film in different ways. Those among these segments who have watched the film in their cast-mold found it difficult to digest the outcome. But, it appealed immensely to the general and mahila audiences. The first half of the film goes fast, while the story is retained in the second half, with excellent message-oriented climax."

"In fact, OM projected the story of a freedom fighter – how he lived an exemplary life during the British Times, and was jailed later. How he responded to the rotten social values as a 90 year old man. To justify his stamina, we showed the leader as having been trained with Chinese martial arts, known for their agility. Moreover, as was criticized by many, we are not at all influenced by either Bharateeyudu or Sardar Paparayudu, both films which had similarities," Chowdary said.

YVS also defended that the movie is drawing huge repeat audiences thanks to the glamorous performance of Anushka, Nisha Kothari and unique role of Simran. The Okka Magaadu getup of Balakrishna was executed with meticulous care at a Hollywood studio. Balakrishna was also happy with the result, he added. Coming to the overseas market, he said that it was purely based on the website rankings. He predicted that OM would bring happiness to all segments of the unit and distributors.
