Veteran Telugu filmmaker Bapu aka Sattiraju Lakshmi Narayana, known for movies like "Sakshi", "Mutyala Muggu" and "Sri Rama Rajyam", says he was touched after watching the recently released Telugu family-drama "Mithunam".
"It's one of those rare films that don't come very often. It's a simple story which every married couple can relate to and must watch. I was completely touched by the performances of the actors in the film," Bapu told IANS.
"Mithunam", directed by Tanikella Bharani, stars S.P. Balasubramanyam and Lakshmi in the lead. The entire story revolves around two elderly characters.
"I personally wrote a letter to Bharani appreciating his work as the director of the film," added the 79-year-old.
The film, based on an eponymous Telugu novel, released Dec 28 last to a heartwarming response in Andhra Pradesh.
