N.T.R.’s “Mahaapurushudu” released when his “Kondaveeti Simham” was still going strong at the box-office. The main element of the film is how N.T.R. sacrifices everything to keep his sister(Sujatha) happy. Murali Mohan acted as his brother-in-law and he got to play the same role the next year in “Bobbilipuli”. “Tolisaari vaadi choopu” is the best song in the film. Jayamalini’s song “Chilakaluripeta Chinnadanni” also went well with the masses. The film was dragged to complete its fifty days run in centres like Nellore.
