This year in Telugu cinema was definitely remarkable. On one side there were expected blockbusters and the other side there were movies that broke open the expected mark, turning to be huge hits. Out of the 200 plus movies that released this year, each one of us might have had our own favourites. Here we ranked the movies based on their content and audience appreciation.
Bahubali was a magnum opus in every way. It did have its glitches, but the sheer scale of the film just out beat them.
2. KUMARI 21F
A bold and beautiful attempt in Telugu cinema. This was a reason why it won many hearts in spite of being speculated that it was adapted from a French movie.
3. YEVADE SUBRAMANYAM
One of the rare kinds of movie about self-realization, love and friendship. It’s an experience to watch this movie.
4. S/O SATYAMURTY
If you take a close look, Satyamurty is hardly seen on screen. But, the way his character is kept alive through his son was one of the sweetest things about the movie.
Yes, for some the movie was slow. But, it never deviated anywhere from the storyline. These kind of movies will be slow. You just need patience to watch this classy performances.

A classy attempt that will remain as one of the best love stories of recent times.
Ek dum energetic! Jr NTR’s perfect comeback.
