Madha is one film that won many International Film Festival Awards before releasing in Theatres in the Telugu States.

Also, people did not show much interest to watch the movie in theatres as it seemed too high concept and urbane style filmmaking. But the movie has a different voice from regular movies and a great technical brilliance is achieved by the team despite limited resources. We think this thriller deserves your attention at least on the digital platforms for sure. Give it a try.
Comic Thrillers are very rarely made in Telugu Cinema. MathuVadalara is a rare Telugu film that tries to tell you the bad effects of drugs in a funny way.

The movie also has few good thrills till the climax to keep you engaged in the proceeds. It is a fun time movie for elders and please don’t let your children watch it, right now.
