Balakrishna is excellent in a powerful role.
A completely different attempt from Nandamuri Balakrishna. Singeetam Srinivasa Rao the genius filmmaker has conceived this idea of making on film on time machine concept. With the technology available in the 90s, Singeetam has done a fabulous job. Aditya 369 is way ahead of that time. However, audiences have received the film so well. Nandamuri Balakrishna in the role of Sri Krishna Devarayulu is a treat to watch. He has done a fantastic job in the movie. The concept itself is intriguing to date and can be watched without any complaints.
Just three years after Aditya 369, Balayya and Singeetam Srinivasa Rao have teamed up for another project. After the science fiction entertainer, this time it is a high fantasy thriller.
