5.  Sammohanam | Rating - 3/5

Directed by Mohan Krishna Indraganti, Sammohanam is a simple yet a beautifully told love story elevated with great character moments, well-written dialogue, wonderful performances and sweet-sounding music composed by Vivek Sagar. A clean, simple, family-friendly movie convenient for a cozy weekend watch.

4. Antariksham 9000 KMPH | Rating - 3.25/5

Released at the back end of the year 2018, Antariksham 9000 KMPH is Tollywood and Director Sankalp Reddy's courageous attempt to diversify and tell great stories in different genres which are left unexplored. Although the film has its own flaws, it still dispenses the plot with riveting and emotional moments and constructs an entertaining two-hour nail-biter worth watching on the big screen.

3. Rangasthalam | Rating - 3.5/5

The highest-grossing and the most successful Tollywood film of 2018, Rangasthalam, directed by Sukumar and starring Ram Charan Tej and Samantha Akkineni in the lead roles deserves all the success it received all throughout last year mainly because of the regional vibe that it imported to the silver screen. The profoundly-written screenplay, the deeper meaning behind certain scenes complimented the commercial aspects of the film like the revenge-driven storyline, custom-written music, action sequences and the bombastic performances from the entire cast. This movie is the perfect example of a commercial film, and the audience responded to it accordingly.

2. Mahanati | Rating - 4/5

Celebrated as the biopic of India's First Female Superstar Savitri Garu, Mahanati is an incredible, emotional, thoughtful and a well-illustrated biopic of one of the most beloved actresses of South Indian Cinema and this film did the best it could to display her love for humanity, acting, and movies. Without a doubt, one of the best Indian films of the year.

1. Goodachari | Rating - 4/5

Re-inventing one of the forgotten genres in Tollywood, Goodachari is, in fact, the best Tollywood film of the year and all credit goes to Adivi Sesh and his incredible team of new and upcoming artists. Giving the utmost significance to the core aspects of the film which are the storyline and the screenplay, screenwriters Sashi Kiran Tikka, Rahul Pakala and Adivi Sesh did a magnificent job interweaving entertaining attributes like plot twists, action set pieces and produced a two-hour-twenty-minute riveting thriller which set the Tollywood movie standards pretty high with an incredibly small budget of six crores. Films like Kshanam, Goodachari are shedding new light on a wide variety of ignored genres, and it's the perfect time to be a Telugu movie fan.
