Telugu Movies on Amazon Prime that are a must watch

Telugu movies are a pivotal part of South Indian movies. Though many assume that Telugu movies are all about sexist, gravity-defying action heroes, Telugu cinema is actually more than that. Amazon Prime has a set of Telugu movies that you are going to love for sure. So, here’s a list of Telugu movies on Amazon Prime that are a must watch.

1.Jathi Ratnalu


If you are in for a laughter riot, then Jathi Ratnalu would be the best choice. The film stars Naveen Polishetty, Priyadarshi, Rahul Ramakrishna, and Faria Abdullah in pivotal roles. The comic timing is brilliant, the delivery of dialogues is on point. You can watch Jathi Ratnalu for two hours of non-stop laughter. I really loved Naveen Polishetty in the film. There is so much potential in this guy that I can’t get enough of him. Few guest appearances also add to the charm of the film. The film is produced by Nag Ashwin under the banner of Swapna Cinemas.

2.Dear Comrade


Dear Comrade is a sweet romantic drama that qualifies as a Telugu entertainer but does not carry along with it the baggage of over machoism or overexposure of female sensuality. The drama is right on point. Vijay Devarakonda and Rashmika Mandanna play the titular roles. Their chemistry is endearing. How they always look out for each other is truly melting. Dear Comrade has the exact amount of emotional content to make us fall in love with the movie. The songs of the film are another highlight.

3.Agent Sai Srinivasa Atreya


Naveen Polishetty’s debut film is a winner. Along with being funny it is also a thrilling investigation movie. Naveen plays a private detective, Agent Sai Srinivasa Atreya who finds himself in trouble after getting involved in a high-profile case. As he pulls himself out of it, some ugly secrets are revealed. Looks like you can trust on Naveen Polishetty’s selection of movies.

4.Nani’s Gang Leader

Let me be honest here, Nani is my favorite Telugu actor. I feel like he has what a real actor needs and what Telugu actors lack in general. Maybe that’s why people innocuously call him ‘Natural Star Nani’. Coming to Nani’s Gangleader, the film though unsuccessful at the box office is a sweet, funny thriller drama. A lack of proper execution of the film does make it a little boring at certain points. But the story is fresh and exciting and definitely worth your time.



Mahanati is the film that fetched actress Keerthi Suresh the coveted National Award for Best Actress. She portrayed the eventful life of yesteryear popular actress Savitri who rose to stardom at a very young age but later lost everything and died in a coma. Savitri was a very philanthropical person and yet she faced a situation that no one ever expected for her. What occurred in her glamorous life that fate took the downside is what Mahanati explores. Keerthy breathes life to the character. She ensures that the performance does not turn out to be mere mimicry or imitation but a genuine reflection of Savitri’s personality.



Anushka Shetty’s comeback after the blockbuster movie Baahubali was not at all disappointing. She carries the entire film on her shoulder quite effortlessly. Bhaagmathie is a horror crime thriller film that manages to keep us engaged throughout. The film has Anushka playing an IAS servant who serves as the PA to a minister played by Jayaram. Certain incidents turn her life upside down and she ends up in prison. Now is when the mystery unravels and we are left quite shocked. The film was also remade in Hindi as Durgamathi with Bhumi Pednekar as the lead.
