Superstar Krishna and Sensational Star Mahesh Babu’s “Koduku Diddina Kapuram” withstood the onslaught of Akkineni Nagurjana’s “Shiva” and became one of the biggest hits of 1989. In fact, the movie fared better than the blockbuster in some rural areas. Young Mahesh, who got noticed for his dances in “Gudachari 117″, became talk of the industry with this movie. The movie is an improvisation of Harnath-Jamuna-Baby Padmini starrer “LethaManasulu”.
