Telugu film fraternity was never that fragmented as it was in mid 80s and each camp came up with some satirical movies. Some hit the bulls eye while others tanked but the atmosphere was highly charged up with supporters (of a camp) protesting and boycotting. Symbolism was at its peak when “Mandalaadheesudu” released as another movie called “Mukhyamanthri Zindaabaad” was released–the dubbed movie, of course,  had nothing to do with politics. “Mandalaadheesudu” , which was made in just 18 days, also turned out to be a potboiler without an arresting screen-play.
