On Anuradha and B&W era
5 June 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Anuradha staring Leela Naidu & Balraj Sahani is an excellent movie. I have seen this movie several times. I would like to thank you for bringing up the best things in past. I'm a great fan of Black & White movies. The skills those guys had at that time was unbelievable. I'm being a animation studio owner and producer, I really miss those simple thing in work. Most of us know that Leela Naidu was the one of the most beautiful women in that era. But I would like to mention that is yet the most beautiful actress that Indian Cenema has got. And about the Sahani Sahab, who can challenge his acting performance. Thanks for this opportunity.
