Everything about this movie is sheer brilliance
18 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This should be one of the all time best movies of telugu film industry. Everything just fell in place, every actor fitted the role to perfection. The direction and music of this film are brilliant and should be a textbook of how to make a mythological film. Every dialogue and poetry in the film are excellent. The movie is very long but not one scene in the movie feels unnecessary and you want the movie to never end. The film was done so meticulously and the hard work put into the movie is clearly evident. This is a must watch movie for every telugu movie viewer. It was one of the first color movies in telugu and also the longest running movie.
