one of the greatest
22 March 2005 | by ravigotetiSee all my reviews

These type of movies should be sent for Oscars. WHAT A MOVIE! Despite being in Telugu language, since Telugu being a classical Lang. and close to Sanskrit anyone who knows Hindi can understand this. Music is great, acting is even better. It casts arguably the greatest Indian actor, NTR, and the great lady savithri. Doing roles like them are just so difficult, and this movie portrays the great Indian epic with utmost ease.

Songs are a great addition to this, salalitha raga sudharasa saram by DR. Balamuralikrishna standing out among other great ones. The amazing stanzas, the picturization and the whole screenplay are brilliant. Worth watching for anyone who understands Telugu, or even a bit of Hindi or Tamil will be enough.
