Awesome movie, Watched 50 times so far
7 November 2014 | by jpavanaryan-38-28916See all my reviews

Awesome movie. Every time I watch this I find myself new element. All time great Indian movie.This comedy is based on a mythological folk tale that draws its backdrop from the Mahabharata. Balarama (Gummadi) and his sister Subhadra (Rushyendra Mani), Arjuna's wife, agree to get their respective children married once they're old enough. Sasirekha (Savitri), the former's daughter, and Abhimanyu (ANR), the latter's son, thus have been in love with each other since their childhood.The powerful casting is one of the factors responsible for having etched the characters into the minds of several generations. The film gently but firmly reminds you that there was only one of each of this high-powered galaxy of stars - one Savitri, one NTR, one S V Ranga Rao, one CSR, one Gummadi.

Then, there's the crisp writing, the sharp wit, and the play with language. Impeccable diction was a given in the era anyway, and it makes an attempt at mythology look more relevant then than now.
