Ultimate.
3 July 2012 | by datla-rajaSee all my reviews

Just can't ask for anything better than this. Inspiring and amazing! :) Cast and crew did really well and performance from the lead Super Star Krishna was just more than what I can ask for. Can watch is as many times as possible and this will remain "The Best" Telugu movie ever motivating millions of Telugu's and Indians all over the world. Watch it and I am sure you would agree with me. One of very old and first colour cinema scope of Telugu cinema. Bagged a whopping 15 Lakhs during that time. The Andhra famous NTR said "Eee cinemaani inthaku minchi inkevvaru cheyyaleeru" meaning : "No body can do or make this film better than Krishna" which is so true!! great stuff.
