Best movie with a great message
11 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the finest and refined movie with great message I have ever seen. Chiranjeevi excelled in his character. The cast and entire crew of Rudraveena did a splendid job. The Karnatic music in this movie is my all time favorite. The album itself is a milestone. Even if a Single person changed his opinion towards consuming alcohol..this movie is Justified. The singers who have rendered their voice especially for the Karnatic songs are exceptionally appreciable. Chiru's eloquent expressions as a Karnatic Vocalist are awesome. I am a big fan of this movie and of course Chiranjeevi. I was a big fan of Chiranjeevi...But my admiration towards him doubled after seeing this message oriented movie. Ingeneral it won't appear to masses. But he dared to take the risk and he succeeded with the movie. I strongly recommend this movie.
