If Akali Rajayam is Old Age classic, then #Pellichoopulu is the new age classic
29 January 2018 | by spaceofanasSee all my reviews

A very cool and enjoyable movie. Concept and content is quiet fresh. Its a story driven movie, there is purpose of every character, scene and dialogue in the movie.

This probably one of the finest movies in the recent times. You can feel the movie while watching it.

The lead actors and supporting actors did their jobs quiet well.

I highly recommend everyone to watch this movie.

The storytelling in the movie is quiet convincing rather forcing audience to believe it.
