Fight against caste oppression
12 March 2008 | by anand-valmikiSee all my reviews

Its a fantastic movie with a social cause of equality and fraternity in human life. The protagonist played by Mega star Dr. Chiranjeevi, fights the problem of caste oppression(hidden apartheid) in a rural village of India. This movie generates some critical consciousness among the audience and brings sensitivity towards others castes, so as to appreciate the diversity and celebrate humanity.

This movie got a great admiration from the audience as well as from film critics. This has won the prestigious President award. The characters in the movie were very well crafted and all the artists had crafted very well to suit their respective roles. The music is fantastic and melodious. Dr. Chiranjeevi just lived in that role rather than acting it out.
