The week’s big Telugu release is “Krishnarjuna Yuddham” which hit the screens in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana on April 13, 2018.

The film stars Nani in a double role along with Anupama Parameswaran and Rukshar Mir. The film is directed by Merlapaka Gandhi who has given commercially successful and much-acclaimed films such as "Venkatadri Express" and "Express Raja."

The trailer of the flick hints that the movie has all the ingredients of a perfect masala film and looking to Gandhi’s past hits it can be safely assumed that the audience will not find a single dull moment.

First-day first show:

Nani gives another effortless and highly appealing performance as Krishna and is adorable in his distinct dialect and complementary body language.


Writer-Director Merlapaka Gandhi has boldly ventured on to a broader canvas as compared to his earlier films and makes all attempts to cash on the burgeoning success of lead actor Nani. In fact, Nani is the soul of the flick and the two characters Krishna and Arjuna are alike as cheese and chalk. It is a familiar path for the actor and the director, and they do the job with aplomb and finesse.

In a show of solidarity with the Tamil Film Producers Council strike, Telugu Film Producers Council has decided to stop the release of “Krishnarjuna Yuddham” in Tamil Nadu.
