My best 2014 Telugu Movies
A hit for me is if I enjoy the movie, if I personally enjoy the movie
- Ridley Scott
Now that the curtains are almost going down for the 2014 year, I thought of enlisting my favorite Telugu movies I watched in this year.
The year started with a bang from Math Mentor Sukumar through his 1 Nenokkadine. This movie has given a new rise and hope in Telugu cinema. Breathtaking performance from Mahesh Babu and other cast, Intensive thriller experience made this movie more flamboyance to movie freaks.
2. Race Gurram
Though the movie is commercial flick, but Surender Reddy executed well with gripping story and screenplay. The wonderful story of two brothers (Allu Arjun and Shaam) and lots of laughs from Kill bill Pandey portrayed by Bramhi made this movie watchable by audience.
3. Chandamama Kathalu
Chandamama Kathalu is an amalgamation of eight sub stories to form a complete story. If you used to enjoy reading Chandama stories in your childhood, you will enjoy this movie too. This anthological movie is made by Praveen Sattaru.
Manam is one of the rarest gems made in recent years. Oh my God what should I tell more about this movie? Starring 3 generations of Akkineni family, Director Vikram has made the family drama intensifying and astonishing through Time factor and Eternal Love. This movie is a felicitous sendoff to Akkineni Nageshwar Rao garu. ఈ కాలంలో వచ్చిన తెలుగు చిత్రాల్లో ఒక అద్భుత వర్ణం #manam ...
5. Oohalu Gusagusalade
Admirer of Woody Allen movies, actor Avsarala Srinivas debuted as director through Oohalu Gusagusalade. This romantic comedy has the spirit of woody allen as Srinivasa Avsarala told. The more interesting part of this movie is Narration of the story and screenplay presence and melodic music from Kalyan Konduri.
Though it’s a remake of Jeetu Joseph’s Malyalam movie Drishyam, Debutant director Supriya made the story to keep intact as original. Back to form acting from Victory Venky and perfect family thriller made this movie more laudable. Venkatesh babu acted as good as the original star Mohan lal.
7. Run Raja Run
Short film maker Sujith became noticeable person in Tollywood through Run Raja Run. Though the story is regular but writing and well execution made this movie more impressive. This one is a perfect comeback to Sharwanand. Oh yeah the refreshing music from M. Gibran made this movie a music entertainer too.
8. Oka Laila Kosam
Oka laila kosam is a Rom-Com, as simple as that. Again though the story is regular but the writer & director Vijay Kumar Konda made this more refreshing through tight screenplay. This one is a debut for lead actress Pooja Hedge in Telugu.
The subject is simple, but good narrative style and curiosity factor gave breath to this movie. This bilingual film (Telugu & Tamil) is made by debutant Chandoo Mondeti. Lead actors Nikhil and Swathi are choosing the right scripts making them more successful in the industry..!
The contemporary making of cinema is highly impressive from Srikanth Addala's Mukunda. Interesting conversations and the genuineness of characters reflects to make the movie more magnificent to cinematic lovers. Debutant actor Varun Tej proved that he is capable of acting. The Year 2014 ended with a delightful watch of Mukunda.
The other movies which I felt as best as the above are Debutant director Prashanth mandava’s Prathinidhi, Sampoornesh Babu starrer Hrudaya Kaleyam from Steven Shankar(Debutant) and Chandra Siddharth’s Emo Gurram eguravachhu. We have seen many debutant film makers and actors in the year 2014. Also many short budget movies tasted great success in Box office. Hoping 2015 will be a great year for Tollywood. I’m looking forward to watch the most awaiting movies I from Shankar and Bahubali from Rajamouli in 2015.
P.S - The movies drafted above are the films I watched. For some reason I couldn’t able to watch some critically acclaimed and positive feedback movies like Ala Ela, Geethanjali, Minugurulu, Naa Bangaaru Talli and Dikkulu Chudaku Ramayya. Going to watch these films once the original DVD’s are released.
