Vamsi Paidipally’s debut film was Munna, a very stylish attempt made with Prabhas which proved to be a below average grosser. However, he joined hands for the first time with Jr NTR for his next film, Brindavanam. NTR was mostly focusing on mass formula entertainers till then. At such crossroads, Brindavanam came as a pleasant surprise and stole the show. Also Thaman worked with NTR for the first time and shot to fame with this film.
