Massive Hero Opening Scene in Telugu Cinema
6 January 2015 | by SrinivasAgnesSee all my reviews

One of the best movie in Mahesh Babu career. After 'Okkadu' movie Gunasekhar and Mahesh Babu worked together. Won 5 nandi awards, at the same time got commercial success and got positive critics reviews.

very massive opening scene for Mahesh Babu..His performance is awesome in emotional scenes and as well as fight scenes.Praksash Raj and Saritha characterization also well in this film. story was simple,but screenplay,story narration,characterization,art work,background score everything executed well. especially Thotta Tharani art work and stunt sequences.

Gunasekhar is the most sensible director in Telugu. He given back to back blockbuster hits to Mahesh Babu. Okkadu and Arjun movies changed Mahesh career graph to high level.
