Highly under appreciated and under-rated movie
17 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie talks about passion and hard work. For a regional film industry investing heavily in films, the Telugu film industry (Tollywood) suffers because of idol worship, womanizers, false prestige, mafia and caste related issues. Still a struggling Assistant director (Ravi Teja in a subdued and dignified role) strives to direct a movie. Does he succeed? Well that's to be watched on the silver screen.

Except for few setbacks, this movie is a must watch for every film lover in India to understand how hard it is to create a movie from scratch. As a matter of fact,even a crappy movie needs significant investment and time.

For anyone looking for inspiration about hard work and success, Ravi Teja is one of the best examples alive today. This movie personally inspired me with it's views on goals, ambitions and how they're supposed to be achieved. Kudos to Ravi Teja especially in the scene where he explains the lead actress about love, commitment and eloping. He rightly deserved the best actor award for this flick. I expect more such films from him and Puri in future.
