Cult classic
10 February 2020 | by bvspavanSee all my reviews

A very good portrayal of the theme 'We must work hard and be always down to earth irrespective of our financial status'. Swayamkrushi is a timeless classic delivered by our finest director K. Vishwanath. Chiranjeevi's performance is top notch. Vijayashanti and the rest of the casting is good. Music is okay.
