The meaning of «oopiri»

Oopiri (lit. 'Breath') is a 2016 Indian comedy-drama film directed by Vamshi Paidipally. A remake of Olivier Nakache & Éric Toledano's French comedy-drama The Intouchables (2011), the film was produced by Prasad V. Potluri and Kavin Anne of PVP Cinema in Telugu and Tamil, the latter as Thozha (lit. 'Companion'). It features Nagarjuna, Karthi, and Tamannaah in the lead roles; Prakash Raj, Ali, Vivek, and Jayasudha play supporting roles. Karthi debuts in Telugu cinema through this film. The film also featured Shriya Saran for a cameo appearance.

The film focuses on the lives of Vikramadhitya (Nagarjuna), a quadriplegic billionaire, and Seenu (Karthi), his ex-convict caretaker. Their realisation of the primacy of life and relationships over money and disability forms the major part of its story. Gopi Sunder composed the film's soundtrack and score, and P. S. Vinod was its cinematographer. Madhu and Praveen K. L. edited the Telugu and Tamil versions, respectively. Principal photography began in March 2015, ending the following February. Most of the film was shot in and around Chennai, Hyderabad, and in Europe in Paris and Belgrade.

Produced on a budget of ₹500–600 million, Oopiri and Thozha were released globally on 25 March 2016. Both received critical acclaim for the performances of the principal cast, the cinematography, and Paidipally's work in adapting the original. They were commercially successful, grossing over ₹1.02 billion worldwide.

Vikramadhitya is a wealthy entrepreneur who owns a group of businesses. In Paris, a paragliding accident leaves him a quadriplegic. To ensure his girlfriend Nandini's happiness, Vikramadhitya's friend and legal adviser, Prasad, conveys a message on his behalf that he is not interested in marrying her.

Five years later, Vikramadhitya leads a hopeless life with his secretary Keerthi, his cook Lakshmi, and a few servants. He and Keerthi interview candidates for a caretaker position; many seem pretentious and manipulative. Seenu, a paroled convict, applies for the job in accordance with his lawyer's (Lingam) advice; the job would prove to the court that Seenu is leading a law-abiding life, closing his case. He is detested by his mother (a railway clerk) and his siblings, Swathi and Kanna.

Vikramadhitya, finding Seenu honest and unpretentious, hires him. He defends his decision to Prasad, saying that Seenu is the right person for the time being since he is the only one who does not pity him. Initially reluctant, Seenu learns the extent of Vikramadhitya's disability and assists him with all his needs. He is attracted to Keerthi, who rejects his advances quickly and gives him an inferiority complex.

Seenu learns that Vikramadhitya has a purely epistolary relationship with a woman called Priya. Seenu encourages him to meet her, but Vikramadhitya opposes it, fearing her reaction when she discovers his disability. Swathi's marriage is opposed by her lover's father, Kalidasu, who ridicules their economic status. Vikramadhitya learns about this, and coerces Kalidasu (through Prasad) without Seenu's knowledge. The marriage is arranged, and Seenu earns Swathi's respect.
