Opinion: Top 5 Best Films In Balakrishna's Career

Today is Baalakrishna Nandamuri's birthday. He turned 61 and his impact on Tollywood screen is still going strong.

Looking back into his long career, here are the five best films of Balakrishna for some reasons. 

Aditya 369: This is the first film on Time Machine in India which turned the heads of many. Balakrishna's performance stands impeccable in this film be it as the protagonist Kishore Kumar or as Sri Krishna Devaraya in the past.

The film shook the box office of 1991 and was eventually remade in Hindi as well. Singeetam Srinivasa Rao was the director of the film while Sridevi Movies produced it. 

Bhairava Dweepam: This folklore film of the year 1994 once again proved that it can be only Balakrishna who can fit well into such characters. His performance in the film is worth remembering.

The film stood up as a musical hit of the season and Balakrishna didn't hesitate to perform in a  disfigured make up (kuroopi) in the second half of the film.

His most convincing lip sync for the classical song Sri Tumbura Narada Nadamrutam speaks volumes about his practice and perseverance. 

Seetarama Kalyanam: This is one memorable film from the filmography of Balakrishna. The film was directed by Jandhyala and proved to be a musical hit. Balakrishna became the darling of many young women and family audiences of those times.

The most famous song 'rallallo isakallo rasaamu iddari perlu' is from this 1986 release in the music direction of KV Mahadevan. Murari produced the film. 

Nari Nari Naduma Murai: This was another interesting musical treat from Balayya's filmography. Though he looked quite fat in the film, he arrested the audience with his hilarious performance.

Produced by Murari and directed by Kodanda Rami Reddy, this film proves to be worth watching at all times. 

Samara Simha Reddy: This film changed the texture of Telugu films. As the first big film with Rayalaseema faction backdrop,

Samarasimha Reddy rewrote many existing box office records. This brought a new image to Balakrishna and eventually a good number of faction oriented films have come on the silver screen with many top heroes of Tollywood. This has also turned the career of Balakrishna who is branded for such backdrops.

It should also be considered that the word 'simha' is associated with Balakrishna from this film onwards. This film was directed by B Gopal and produced by Chengala Venkat Rao.
