A.Brasi. Simply too good!!
I have a Malayali friend who said that there was an old Malayalam movie of Mohanlal which has the similar story line as ‘Avatar’. It was not about going to a different planet and the aliens but, its a story about an Engineer, goes on a job to clear a slum for building a huge building and ultimately ends up fighting for the poor against his own employers…..
Geeta garu, this report was a spoof andi. Both KP and I had some fun at the expense of our (Telugu people) habits and Telugu movies. That’s all. 🙂
A very good observation on how a popular telugu movie is seen around the US,
Kevvu Keka was pretty funny 🙂
