A simple story told well goes a long way in overcoming any and all kinds of gimmick deficiency. That Uyyala Jampala is a fine example of just such a story is not something we can stress enough.
A sleepy village plays the backdrop to Suri's (Raj Tarun) seemingly sleepy life, where all that is exciting is anchored at Uma (Avika Gor), his maridelu from hell. Not that he knows it, of course. He's content enough with his kodi penta business and his little house next to hers, and makes a part-time job of tormenting her.
