Though adopted from the french movie, “The Intouchables”, the director made sure, Oopiri can be related to the Telugu audience well. The cinematography elevated the film well and the editing has been decent. Prasad V Potluri should be mentioned specially for his brave attempt and spending a bomb on an emotional concept like Oopiri. Vamsi Paidipally has done a decent job in bringing out an emotional entertainer with all the ingredients in the right amounts.

Uplifting, likable drama

Karthi and Nagarjuna are perfectly cast and share a great chemistry

The South Indian versions of 'The Intouchables', have been tweaked to suit the tastes of the local audience
International Business Times
This is an Amazing movie with good choice of actors and perfect locations. The acting is so natural and that gives a solid momentum to the story. The movie also shows the social differences which is prevailing. Vamsi's screenplay is just a masterpiece of comedy writing. On the flip side, editing has been so poor. It needs to be better, Crisp editing would have done wonders.

A Must watch Film

Though a remake of the comedy drama '€œThe Intouchables'€, Thozha has its own flavour which makes it a feel good film for the whole family

She seems like an ice-maiden, and as Keerthi in a portrayal replicating that of the secretary in The Intouchables, Tamannaah is a huge disappointment

Karthi and Nagarjuna's celebration of life deserves your time.

Oopiri is a bromantic comedrama that is a rare film.  It comes with memorable performances, neat writing, and a deft technical texture.  The second half falters a bit in terms of slow pace.  But it's excusable.
India Glitz
Definitely worth a watch for the wonderful performances by Karthi and Nagarjuna, which was well conceived by director Vamsi
Cinema Glitz
'Thozha', is heart-warming and crowd-pleasing
The Times of India
The trailers showcased Oopiri as a celebration of life and indeed, the film as a whole stands up to all its hype and hysteria. Nagarjuna’s life changing performance and Karthi’s liveliness create magic on screen and make things work big time. Though one feels that the film is majorly catered to class audience, it has the capacity to even impress the front benchers because of its universal emotions. Very rarely does one come across such a meaningful film in Telugu which holds your attention with its beautiful narration. Finally, if you ignore the slow pace of the film during the second half, Oopiri is one film which stands apart and cannot be missed.

Thozha in Tamil is that fascinating French film, The Intouchables
Hindustan Times
Telugu cinema has always been a difficult terrain for remakes as thestory lines structured for audiences elsewhere, often found itdifficult to gel with the tastes of our Telugu audiences. Even thoughthat is the case, the recent years witnessed a lot of remakes inTelugu, with very few of them making an impression among thespectators. “Oopiri” is the latest one to add to the list, and thisbeing the first of the adaptation made by the director VamsiPaidipally. So in all, Oopiri has a fine direction, good performancesand some well executed sequences too. But with nothing new to revealor surprise in its content for me its content, for me it just remainsa good one time watch and not anything more than that as beingprojected.

'Thozha', is a crowd-pleasing emotional drama that sticks to its core pretty well without deviating much into the so-called commercial elements
