One of the greatest Telugu movies ever made!
14 July 2002 | by srikant_vedutlaSee all my reviews

This is another great film from Vishwanath and Kamal Hassan. It's very different from Sagara Sangamam, but equal as good. I've spent most of my 18 year existence watching western films and hoped one-day India could achieve some realistic films with a good story. Instead of the banal plots: hero loves girl, girls get kidnapped and hero saves her from the evil villain. Then one of my friends recommended this film. The only word for it is : BEAUTIFUL.

The story is of mentally slow man, whose life is recapped to his grand-daughter. How he meets his wife (who was a widow), earns his living and fights the injustice he and his wife face. Superb acting, especially Kamal Hassan and for once in Indian films the songs fit nicely into the sequence of the film. All in all a great film and a real credit to Indian cinema.
