Telugu And Tamil films
Telugu and Tamil films are gearing up for an exciting month ahead, as 2021 nears its close. November is all set to bring with it a slate of film offerings you can enjoy with friends, family or alone every weekend. Or weekday. At the tail end of the year when the air is heavy with festivity, even workaholics lose their will to hustle. Even the bosses (perhaps) understand.

However, with theatres gradually bouncing back to business, audiences have a plethora of release options to choose from. So dive in!
