Ninnu Kori revitalized my trust in the Telugu industry after Harish Shankar and co. boggled my mind in DJ.
All I would like to say is that this movie typically wouldn't be accepted in our industry. We like happy endings with the hero and heroine together. We shunned tragedies of all kinds. But shockingly this movie managed it through without even a dent. And I think the credit for the RANGE of success for this film should go to Nani. He has instilled a trust in the public that he only does good movies (even though there are hidden duds like Majnu and Nenu Local in his recent track record) and that translated to big money and wide reception.
Next, I'd like to compliment Nivetha and Aadi for their perfectly nuanced performances. Both Murali Sharma and Prudhvi had neat deliveries as well.
I was kind of scared when I saw that Kona Venkat was involved in this project but director Shiva Nirvana presented us with a gem of a movie.
Just a little less than perfect, but, hey, that's as good as it gets.

It's official - Nani is a star. And that's a huge responsibility. You'll be obliged to cater to your fans. You're obliged to go after some good-looking chick (who's also a woman with aspirations, but who cares?) despite having no academic or financial success yourself. What "despite" - it is quite necessa....
