Gundamma Katha - A Perfect Family Entertainer
29 May 2018 | by Samrudh_DavidSee all my reviews

This film is one of the best ever multistarrer films in the Telugu cinema & the Indian Cinema as well.

NTR Garu & ANR Garu are outstanding as the lead actors & Savitri Garu, Jamuna Garu are also outstanding as lead actresses in the film. SVR Garu is also outstanding in his role.

Suryakantham Garu is the back bone of the film without any doubt. Except her, no one could have done justice to the role of " Gundamma " !

The performances of the lead actors & actresses can be given as an example that how acting should be done in a film !

The family values are explained in an excellent way

Finally, this film is easily one of the best films in Indian Cinema.
