Cast: Allari Naresh, Faria Abdulla, Jamie Lever, Ajay, Viva Harsha
Director: Malli Ankam
Rating: 1.5 stars

The story revolves around Ganapati, also known as Gana (played by Allari Naresh), a government employee in his mid-thirties who is yet to tie the knot. Despite his decent looks and stable job, Gana faces relentless pressure from society to get married. The constant taunts from neighbors, colleagues, and friends about his single status push him into a frantic search for a suitable bride. His quest leads him to Happy Matrimonial, a marriage bureau run by Upendra (Anish Kuruvilla) and Divya (Hariteja). Through the agency, Gana meets Siddhi (Faria), with whom he had a chance encounter earlier. Gana is immediately drawn to Siddhi and proposes to her. However, Siddhi reveals that she wants to explore other options before committing to Gana. Disheartened yet hopeful, Gana agrees to wait for Siddhi's decision.

As Gana anxiously awaits Siddhi's response, unexpected complications arise, threatening to drive them apart. Revelations about Siddhi's identity and a scandal involving the marriage bureau emerge, jeopardizing their budding romance. The focus of the story shifts towards exposing the unethical practices of matrimonial agencies and clearing the names of the lead characters. Gana and Siddhi join forces to unravel the truth and overcome the obstacles in their path to happiness.

The film kicks off on a promising note, introducing viewers to Gana's world through the lens of an e-commerce delivery person. However, as the story progresses, the repetitive nature of Gana's struggles with societal norms dampens the comedic essence. Jamie Lever's portrayal of Devi, Gana's sister-in-law, adds a refreshing touch to the narrative initially but eventually falls into monotony.

Gopi Sundar's music, while decent, fails to leave a lasting impression. The lavish picturization of songs and competent camerawork complement the storyline. However, the slow pace of the film, coupled with formulaic screenplay writing, hampers its overall impact. Despite Naresh's previous successes in diverse roles, Aa Okkati Adakku falls short of expectations, making it a disappointing venture for the actor.

Faria shines in her role as Siddhi, exuding charm and glamour on screen. While her Telugu diction may need improvement, her performance, especially in dance sequences, is commendable. Allari Naresh delivers a competent performance as Gana, but his comedic timing feels subdued compared to his previous roles. The writing, unfortunately, lacks the punch needed to sustain the humor throughout the film. The first half, in particular, drags on, and the narrative loses its comedic tone in the latter half, focusing more on exposing the dark side of marriage bureaus.
