A film for generations to come
5 April 2004 | by palagiri_kiranSee all my reviews

Jandhyala was one of the most prolific directors in Telugu who created movies with either outright fun or an excellent social message. Every person who enjoyed his films owes it personally to thank Jandhyala. When most movies were becoming monotonous with their hero's muscle strength or actresses exposure, Jandhyala provided healthy comedy. This film is not just about an Indian girl falling in love with an American boy. It's about the cultural barriers we need to abolish. The entire world is one family, as he says "Vasudaika Kutumbham". The extremely melodious music from SPB is awesome. Especially the song "Pibare Rama rasam..." Hats off.
