Storyline

Pandu is a killer for hire, and will accept any contract provided the amount is right. The Police want him for questioning, while the underworld needs him to silence their opponents. No one really knows this assassin's background. It is only Pandu who knows his real identity and he has no intention of sharing it with anyone. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

An excellent movie
8 July 2007 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Wow, when I first watched this movie, I was blown-away! It's a very good thriller/comedy/romance/action etc Telugu film.

Mahesh's performance is amazing and he is made for this role. His new haircut is hot and he is so, so Hot in Pokiri! Prakash Raj should win a award for Pokiri and Ileana is so,so beautiful and pretty. My new favorite actress! The comedy track was OK and I love the chemistry between Ileana and Mahesh especially the elevator and up-ma scenes.

Puri did remarkably good for directing and the story! The songs are breath-taking. I actually like them all and I bought the soundtrack! This is a brilliant movie and it deserves to break the Telugu movie records! Pokiri is nowing running for 400 Days!

I can't wait for the Hindi pokiri and also I didn't like the Tamil one! So, I say that every Telugu people have to watch this movie!
