Said Producer Nilesh Newalkar, “This movie O La La is a departure from my earlier film Nirmon which is a remake of the 1966 Konkani classic. We have attempted something very different in this film and have worked together to offer Goan viewers a slice of entertainment which includes a little bit of everything right from comedy to suspense to drama. We hope that the people of Goa and every Goan across the globe enjoys this film”.

Added Director Sripad R. A. Pai, “Goa has a great film culture. This comedy is a transition from serious Konkani cinema to commercial films and we are confident that this genre will work in Goa and will be a success. We have a star cast of talented Goan artists who have performed wonderfully in this film. The sole objective of this movie O La La is to entertain the viewers.”

Synopsis of the film:

O La La is the first Konkani comedy film to be introduced which is about the comedy of errors. It is pure entertainment.

Three persons who are in their mid – fifties come together to start an event company called O La La. The company does exceedingly well and achieves great success in just a year.

Robert the owner of ‘Eventa de Goa’ which is supposed to be the first event company in Goa and a competitor of O La La suffers losses due to the success of O La La. Moreover, Robert’s daughter Ruby is in love with Mac, a freelance photographer which is against Robert’s will as he dislikes Mac.

When Ruby comes in contact with the O La La trio who are supposed to be her father’s business rivals, she tries to use them to her own advantage but ends up creating a messy situation around herself. In order to emerge out of this mess Ruby and Robert then start blackmailing and threatening the O La La trio. Mac stands in support of the O La La trio instead of helping Ruby and walks away from his relationship with her. It then becomes a game between the O La La trio along with Mac on one side and the father – daughter duo of Robert and Ruby on the other. The circumstances and the situations which the lead actors find themselves in turn out to be funny and emotional at the same time. Suspense is woven expertly in the plot which grabs the viewer by surprise. The film is true ‘entertainment’ in every sense of the term.
