One of its kind, masterpiece
19 September 2015 | by vnshashidharraoSee all my reviews

This movie captured the soul of the land during nizam rule, true masterpiece, hats off to Guatam, incredible direction, awesome movie, watched this movie when i was kid, have been watching ever since then, never ever feel bored watching movie, great movie. this movie clearly illustrates the hardships faced by people of telangana during nizam rule, the revolt to freedom in free India, the victory of common man against a mighty empire. A great movie to watch anytime, touching story, the screenplay, direction and the movie as a whole is mindblowing, very well deserved entry into the top 100 list of all the Indian movies, a very very well executed script, a must watch for true movie lover, available with English subtitles for those who do not understand Telugu.
