After having watched Gorantha Deepam during my college days in 1978, I could never ever watch this movie till today. Fantastic! One of Bapu's best movies ever!
This is perhaps Vanisri's best movie - she acted in this movie wihout any makeup, a first for a Telugu movie. Sridhar as a cheerful but ineffective husband played wonderfully well. Mohan Babu was the classic villian. Vanisri stole the show. Ravugopal Rao, Suryakantham and others were watchable. I am so glad for this day!! Please watch it if you can!
Somehow this movie vanished from TV and cable channels.
