A Masterpiece
23 January 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

'Tholiprema', means first love. Its the true love which happens only once in everyone's lives. This film belongs to the elite list of the modern telugu classics. 'Tholiprema' showcases love, friendship, romance and family in its purest form. Watching this film takes you back to the beautiful India of 1990's. Trust me you will never want the film to end as you start to live inside the film, that's the magic of 'Tholiprema'. After the film's end note, expect to have a heavy heart with an inner rejuvenation.

Pawan Kalyan's finest performance till date. (The status he is enjoying today, he owes a lot to 'Tholiprema')

Keerti Reddy is a Goddess in this movie. (Debut film of her)

Vasuki as hero's sister lived in her role. (Wonderful selection of her for this character)

Deva's music and film's background score moves your soul.

Director Karunakaran, i have heard he is a painter and if that is correct then this film is his best art till date.

The climax scene in the film is just superlative.

This film ran for 365 days and i remember it was released second time even, such was its popularity.

I remember my brother and his friends who used to go and watch this movie almost every other day in 1998 when it ran in theaters.

10/10 movie. Mightily Recommended !!
