Missamma :-never to miss such a master piece
23 September 2006 | by rajendrabaynewsSee all my reviews

Missamma is a masterpiece. The real hero of the film is not the NTR, but Savithri, and Relangi's role is a memorable one along with his two songs. Apart from story, performance of the artistes all of them, music has played very dominant role in this super hit cinema. As ko.ku mentioned in his review misplacement was the real reason for the story in this hilarious all time great film produced by VIJAYA.often it was reported late bhanumathi was supposed to enact the role of Missamma, but ultimately SAVITHRI essayed the role with an ease inimitable style and élan. The three hour plus film never lacks an interesting scene in its entirety and still drags crowds wherever it was shown whether on TV or in cinema houses.ANR, NTR, SVR, RELANGI, RAMAMNAREDDY, JAMUNA, AND SAVITHRI made the film as a masterpiece with the technical inputs from Marcus Bartley and rajeswararao
