Set in war-ridden India in 1964, Sita Ramam tells the tale of poetic romance between Sita Mahalakshmi and Lieutenant Ram. The film is nothing less than visual poetry.

Contrary to many of my friends who tagged this film as a “fairy-tale” drama, I found Sita Ramam moving and beautiful in every frame.

A Telugu romantic film I watched most recently, Miss Shetty Mr Polishetty has my whole heart. I can watch the whole film again just for Naveen Polishetty who nails his role as Siddhu Polishetty. Anushka Shetty is no less in her mesmerizing screen presence. Anvitha (Anushka Shetty) doesn’t believe in love while Siddhu is a hopeless romantic. Destiny brings them together but things aren’t as smooth as Siddhu thinks. Filled with a lot of humor and heartwarming moments, this is one of the best romantic Telugu movies you will see this year.
