    Cast: Prince Cecil, Dimple Chopda and Manasa Director: Swami Rating: 2 out of 5 If you strip down love to its cheapest form, you get this low-budget flick that starts off as a light-hearted entertainer, but eventually turns bitter due to constant use of cuss words and double meaning undertones....

    Do you remember the young raw Jagapathi Babu playing the local don in perhaps what has been his best role till date? Does Urmila Mantondar shaking her leg with Uthej in that unforgettable ‘Nizam Pori’ song come to your mind? Can you recall Kota Srinivas Rao delivering a superb performance...

  • 'Don Seenu' is a disappointing, routine flick 14-08-2010 06:24 PM
