In the year 2009, Tollywood gave two super hit films
Director: S S Rajamouli
Cast: Ramcharan Teja, Kajal Agarwal, Srihari
“Magadheera” is the biggest blockbuster of Telugu cinema industry so far. This smash hit broke all records and ran for an uninterrupted 100 plus days. The film proved Rajamouli’s record as one of the directors with the Midas touch.
A simple theme of reincarnation was woven into a period saga by Rajamouli and his father Vijayendra Prasad with incredible technical brilliance. The music by M M Keeravani, camera work by Senthil, art work by Ravindra and the SFX were the highlights which added a huge plus to the film.
Director: Kodi Ramakrishna
Producer: Shyam Prasad Reddy
Cast: Anushka, Sonu Sood, Sayaji Shinde
“Arundhati”, released at the beginning of the year just after Sankranthi, was the smash blockbuster of the year till Magadheera snatched the title. This tale of reincarnation and revenge found an overwhelming response from the audience.
Mind-boggling special effects — quite amazing by Telugu cinema standards — by Rahul Nambiar and his team, good art direction and wonderful camera work by Senthil and of course a well-conceived script and screenplay by Shyam Prasad Reddy and his Mallemalla Production team, and some fine acting by Anushka, Sonu Sood and Sayaji Shinde made “Arundhati” a runaway success.
