An Honest and Touching film about TFI
21 December 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I had watched this movie on DVD (It hardly ran in theaters) and it is now among my favorite Telugu movies.

Despite this being a very realistic and well made movie, it had very poor critic rating. Now, of course they would bash this movie, the director Puri Jagannath had criticized the (so called) Telugu movie reviewers.Please whoever is reading this do not read those useless reviews and miss out this fantastic movie.

Puri Jagannath gives an honest portrayal (probably semi-autobiographical) of an aspiring director (or any other technician) in the Telugu film industry. Despite facing many a hardship to get a footing in the industry, the sheer passion and love for movies that drives these guys is amazing. That is captured very well in the movie.

Ravi Teja is probably the right guy to play the lead, having struggled a lot to reach the position he is in today. I would rate this as his best ever performance.Sayaji Shinde as a producer, Subbaraju as the hero and Sairam Shankar as the fans association president were very good as well. The others played their part well too.

If you want to watch a very realistic, hard hitting movie on the working s of the Telugu Film Industry, this is the movie to watch.
