Telangana Information Technology Minister K.T. Rama Rao has heaped praise on latest Telugu indie hit “Pellichoopulu“, calling it an exceptional film which breaks new ground.

The makers of “Pellichoopulu” organised a special screening of the film for Rao on Tuesday.

“Watched an exceptionally well made movie ‘Pellichoopulu’, which breaks new grounds on many counts. Kudos to Tharun and entire team. Must watch,” he wrote on his Twitter page.

He was especially happy that the movie gives a message without being preachy, and shines the spotlight on unconventional professions, women empowerment and entrepreneurial spirit.

Directed by Tharun Bhascker Dhaassyam, “Pellichoopulu”, which released in cinemas on July 29, has become a runaway hit both in domestic as well as overseas markets.

In the US, it is inching close to the prestigious million dollar club.

Starring Vijay Deverakonda, Ritu Varma and Priyadarshi Pullikonda, the film is about the journey of a boy and a girl who are brought together by a business venture.
