Worth Watching
26 May 2019 | by mohit_sinsniwalSee all my reviews

Watching Arundhati is a delight. After a long time i have seen a telugu movie which actually blends the CG and Content in right proportion. This is a movie that must not be missed by any one and must be watched in theaters only. It sets new standards of film making and we can expect more films to come out of this genre which is rather rarely touched in Telugu cinema these days. The story of the film is OK. But the screenplay is fantastic. U cannot blink ur eye while watching this film. It has breathtaking screenplay. Acting by Anushka is fantastic. I am at a loss of adjectives for her performance especially in the role of jejemma. She is perfect for both the roles. Sonu sood is Superb. He must thank Mr.P.Ravi Shankar who has given voice to that character. Sayaji Shinde is good. Rest of the cast performed well. One must thank the producer Mr.M.Shyam Prasad Reddy garu who gave us a gem of a movie. His desire for creativity is seen in every frame of the film. He never compromised on anything. I guess no other producer would have dared to spend 13+ crores on a heroine oriented film. Kodi Ramakrishna proves yet again that he is the man for these types of films. Special mention for Rahul Nambiar who is the creative director and Special Effects Supervisor of the film. He has done a great job.
