Navathaa Arts’ “Naalugu Sthambaalaata” is one of the very few movies that enriched our lexicon. Veerabhadhra Rao’s usage of the word “Sutthi” in the movie became so popular that it is still used interchangeably by several people to describe something boring. Pradeep’s role in this film is a fine example of smooth character elevation. The conversation between the father (Veerabhadhra Rao) & and the son (Pradeep) after the former gets to know that his son is not the biological father of the child his daughter-in-law is carrying is so profound that it elevates Pradeeps’ character to Exospheric levels. Superb songs like “Raagamoo, Anuraagamoo” ,“Kaliki Chilukaraa” and the ever so popular “Chinukulaa Raali” make this film an eternal classic.
