Quarantine Telugu Movie Starter Pack

No one likes to be forced to do things. But in these testing times, maybe being indoors is the best thing that one can do.In the meanwhile, our readers, especially the non Telugu ones, have kept asking us for suggestions over what Telugu movies to watch.

Consider this as an introduction to Telugu movies. We haven't chosen love stories or comedies or emotional movies, as for a first time viewer of Telugu movies, they could get lost in the translation. And hence, we have chosen movies that are true blue thrillers. So here we are, with our picks. And we guarantee you, they will make you go "Whoa!!".

Matthu Vadhalara

What begins off as a simple theft soon spirals into a murky web from which there is no coming back. Find us a loophole and we'll treat you as a team; that's how well written this movie is. And thriller movies were never so much fun, literally. Guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seats, this one.

Available on Amazon Prime


A child's burning quest for answers about his father, this is India's answer to the Mission Impossible franchise. Slick and stylish, it keeps throwing punches which you didn't see coming. And if the final reveal didn't knock the wind out of your sails, come to us, we'll do it for you.

Available on Amazon Prime


What do you get when you have a scientist, a magician, a chef, a drug addict and a talking fish and a tree? Simple. You get Awe. Awe is a mind-bending movie in the truest sense of the word. Christopher Nolan would be proud of this movie.

Available on Netflix

1 - Nenokkadinne

If a hallucinating rockstar who is on the lookout for his parents' killers can't get you excited, then we don't know what can. Every door is a dead end and every turn leads to a drop, or so it seems. One of the best ever climaxes for a movie, Nenokkadine is a must watch.

Available on Sun Nxt and Jio Cinema

Agent Sai Srinivas Athreya

India's tribute and answer to Sherlock Holmes, ASSA is another movie that is totally plot driven and never lets up once it gets into its main act. An out of work, small town detective and his tryst with missing bodies, ASSA is one of the finest movies to have come out of Tollywood in recent times.

Available on Amazon Prime

PS - We weren't joking about the treat. And please, stay safe. Happy quarantine.
