Oye Ninne: Old wine in new bottle

For two youngsters brought up together and sharing the bond of cousins, love and hate relations are common. What if it turns out to be love? Will they confess their love to each other or just let their parents decide who their life partners will be?

In a situation where family prestige is given more importance than love, what chance does their love has? Such is the story of Vishnu and Veda in Oye Ninne.

Shot in the backdrop of a small village near Rajahmundry, the film is a neat entertainer. Vishnu (Bharat) is a youngster who fails to meet the demands of his father on achieving academic excellence while his cousin, Veda (Srushti), is college topper. Vishnu is always compared with
Veda and that’s when he starts developing hatred towards her.

However, as they participate in a college camp and spend time together, love blossoms between them. By the time Vishnu tries to confess his love to Veda, she gets engaged.
A question remains on his abilities to prove himself in life. This forms the crux of Oye Ninne.

The film is narrated from the hero’s point of view and every time it takes a leap, the narration keeps the audience gripped. The film’s story is an old concept, yet the director has directed it in a refreshing manner by dwelling into the thought process of present generation.

Debutant Bharat has performed well and Srushti fits well as a modern and educated girl. Nagineedu and Tulasi as Vishnu’s parents play a decent role. The production quality of the film remains high.

As the two realise their love for each other in the second half, the film devours quite some time to wrap up and this makes the climax predictable.

A bunch of youngsters add good comedy. Music by Shekhar Chandra goes well with the emotions. On the whole, Oye Ninne is worth a weekend watch.
