Pandava Vanavasam - One Of The Best Films Based On " The Mahabharata "
29 May 2018 | by Samrudh_DavidSee all my reviews

This film is based on the aranya parva in the Indian epic " The Mahabharata "

Obviously NTR Garu & Savitri Garu did splendid job in the lead roles.

The direction is very good & the screenplay is good too. The story is very well narrated and executed.

Finally, this one is an outstanding film and can be given the tag " Classic " too !
