Master piece of Indian cinema
10 July 2017 | by francisrecruiterSee all my reviews

I remember, I was 12 years old when me and my mom saw Karunamayudu movie in black and white small TV. Whenever we me and mom watching this movie, my mom used to cry upon the climax part. I was very confused why she is crying all the time when Jesus almighty was hanging on cross. But after almost 16 years later recently I have watched this movie and guess what my eyes are full of tears. That's the power of Jesus Christ. Well Karunamayudu is a master piece of Indian cinema. Kudos to all the actors who played their respected roles. Vijaychander was awesome and Raja babu, Chandra Mohan they literally lived in the character. even after 200 years this movie attracts all the generations. I specially thank director Bhim singh for choosing Jesus life story. India Need Jesus Christ. Amen!
