Mugguru Maratheelu (1946)

Lyrics: Tapi Dharma Rao, Prayaga Narasimha Sastry

Note: The highlight of this movie is the action of P.Kannamba, who played the villain role. Standing up to the acting prowess of three heroes and showing villainy with a panache that counters three heroes is no ordinary thing, that too for an actress. But Kannamba, with an inimitable aplomb, came out with a sterling performance. I personally feel she dominated the three heroes with her performance. No other actress can do it.
