'Badri' which released on April 20th, 2000 completed 15 Years Today. Its a film which made Pawan Kalyan a youth icon and cemented his place in the Industry as a Star Hero. Mannerisms, Dialogue Delivery & Style of Powerstar in this movie were a rage among youth.Who would forget the scene in which Pawan delivers the one-liner - "Nuvvu Nanda Aithe Nenu Badri, Badrinath. Aythe Enti?".
All his confrontation scenes with Prakash Raj worked superbly and elevated heroism to the next level.Puri's Direction, Ramana Gogula's music & Anand Sai's art direction were so perfect. Renu Desai & Amesha Patel played their roles beautifully. Love bloosomed between Pawan & Renu during the shooting period. Comedy tracks of Ali, Brahmanandam & Mallikarjuna Rao were hilarious.Notably, 'Badri' ran successfully for 100 Days in 45 Centres inspite of lack of necessary promotional tools like TV Ads and most importantly with divide talk.'Badri' will always be a special film in the career of Pawan Kalyan and his fans will treat it as a game changer in TFI.
