Good attempt by a Commerical Director
27 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every Telugu Film goer was surprised when there was an announcement about "Annamayya" movie being made by Direcotr K Raghavendra Rao with Nagarjuna as Annamacharya. The reason could be their commercial image. But Telugu audience soon realized that "Annamayya" is definitely one among the best movies ever produced by Telugu Film Industry. Though there have been few changes in the original life history of Shri Tallapaka Annamacharya, one could understand these changes helped the movie to become commercially a big hit. This film has Good casting, music, screen play, dialogs along with lyrics (most of them penned by Annamacharya) make this a good movie. Except for few unnecessary scenes in the movie (between Mohan Babu and Roja; Bramhanandam and Gundu Hanumantha Rao) overall - Annamayya gives us a fresh feel. Annamayya is a good movie worth watching.
