Prakash Raj, A Versatile actor known for his amazing works in every industry. He won many National awards. He entered into direction part to elevate his skills. He delivered Dhoni and Ulavacharu Biryani movies but these didn't make a mark. Now he is back with 'Mana Oori Ramayanam' which is a remake of malayalam movie 'Shutter'. Did Prakash Raj make this time? Let's get into the review.

Story : 
Story starts in a village which celebrates Srirama Navami. Bhujangam (Prakash Raj) renowned person who has a daughter ready to get married. He arranges a match for his daughter but she denies the decision of getting married which upsets him. Shiva(Satya) is an auto driver who always roam around Bhujangam to get a VISA from him. Bhujangam completely boozes before the night of Navami celebrations. Then he attract towards a prostitute (Priyamani) and wanted to make a night with her. He takes help from Shiva and enters into a shed. Bhujangam thinks that this is not good and his reputation might spoil if this situation reveals out.They both enter the shed and Shiva locks the shed and leaves from there and takes a longtime to return. What happened when the villagers know about this and what turn it took in Bhujangam life is the else story.

A very thin line story which amazes us. Malayalam creators should definitely be appreciated for an attempt like this. Telugu version is exact, story revolves around 4 people. The way they think, stand up to the problems and resolves them and their expression of feelings is the main plot. Half of the movie happens in the shed itself between Prakash Raj and Priyamani. First half goes on smoothly with inconsiderable drag. Director added a tinge of comedy track with Garuda character.

Priyamani did full justice to her character which clearly depicts that she is choosy about the characters she play. Prakash Raj acting is cakewalk of the film. Prudhvi and Satya did settled acting.

Technical Department : 
Camera work is Good. Ilaiyaraaja music is main plus. Prakash Raj balanced his skills both in acting and direction. 

Positive Points : 
* Story
* Lead Actors Performances
* Music

Negative Points :
Drag in Second half

Final verdict : Despite the fact that it doesn't attract mass audience much but the pure content can be felt. Audience who are bored with the routine story making and telling, this film will be a good one.
