2019 was pretty bad as far as Telugu films go & it's even tougher to pick best 5.
Have heard a lot about Mathu Vadalara but haven't watched it. So among the rest,
- Brochevarevarura - good sweet simple film with good comedy.
- Jersey - lacks repeat value but really a good film.
- Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya - Naveen Polishetty show but the film is at it's best average.
- Oh Baby! - again an average film. You can understand how bad 2019 was.
Among the box office hits.
- Majili - blockbuster or not, definitely not a good film. One can watch for Samantha only.
- iSmart Shankar - I had constantly check whether my ears bled or even my eyes. Yes it's a blockbuster but utterly terrible film.
- F2 - honestly I laughed a lot in the first half. Second half extremely unbearable.
- Maharshi - entire film itself was unbearable.
- Chitralahari - only hype.
Among the biggies that didn't work -
1. Saaho - crap.
2. Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy - period crap.
3. Dear Comrade - wasted opportunity.
