Saleem Movie - High Lights - Mohan Babu and Manchu Vishnu Performance
3 August 2017 | by koelshriberSee all my reviews

"Vishnuvardhan Babu, the young hero who is ranked last in today's genre of young heroes is struggling hard with his career after successful "Dhee". YVS Chowdary, after shaping "Okka Magaadu" into a damn failure is packed up for nearly one and half year. With the combination of these two, one would generally expect a dumb movie, but spicy Ileana along with versatile artist Mohanbabu's presence in "Saleem" and being made on prestigious "Laxmi Prasanna" banner as their 50th movie with highest budget ever on this banner has raised too many expectations on this movie.

Vishnuvardhan as Saleem and Munna had improved in all the departments. Vishnu looked handsome with his lean look in stylish costumes. Vishnu changed his entire get up for Saleem and it looked worth. "
