Best Film ever in South India
9 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is the best film ever in south India...Nobody denies this if you watch it...really fantastic story line and pawan kalyan is simply amazing.... and Balu character is simply made for pawan kalyan....hope we will get some more films like Tholiprema,Nuvvu Naaku Nachav,Kushi,Manmadhudu.. in future....Now these days tollywood lacks of best films like these....hope directors will concentrate on this to give a nice entertainment to the viewers.... and Nice to see IMDb with all database from Relangi to Sharon Stone...main story is a person who always enjoys the life and not caring about studies and seriousness in life will change the whole thing when he meets a girl Anu. then his life changes when he realizes that he is loving her...climax is so brilliant..this is the best climax i have seen ever...
