The Best of the Best !!!!
9 October 2018 | by hguy1See all my reviews

There never will be enough space to write about this movie. The writer/director had done well to create a perfect movie.

Star-crossed lovers is not a new concept. We have Heer Ranjha, Laila M, Romeo J and a dozen other. But what makes this stand out is the novel concept and its treatment.

The Telugu ear had never heard such music before. And lapped it up. Plus two heroines. One, the out-going and bubbly Sarita and he other Madhavi, a brooding dancer.

And dont forget Kamalhassan.

Set in the picturesque locale of vizag, this bw movie is not to be missed.
