Among the best in Telugu
6 March 2006 | by ravigotetiSee all my reviews

The story sounds very familiar, yet it has all the originality, along with wonderful acting from ANR and playback singing from Sri Ghantasala. The story is simple. The setting is made in around 1600-1700, in the empire of Vijayanagaram. ANR belongs to a high caste (brahmin) family. He lives with his brother and sister-in-law, who is also his closest friend, he treats her like a mother.

Anjali is part of a troupe that take part in drama for their earning. Their "lower caste" is a big hurdle for them.

The rest of the story is how ANR marries Anjali, and how he goes against the norm and makes people realize that all humans are the same.

Music is top notch, overall it is a great movie. A must watch for everyone.
