Ravi Kumar Chowdary, jointly produced by Bunny Vasu and Harishith on Geetha Arts and Sri Venkateswara Creations banner. Starring Sai Dharam Tej, Regina Cassandra, Jagapathi Babu and music was composed by Anoop Rubens. The film is the first release of Sai Dharam Tej as the lead actor. The title was taken from a song of the film Gabbar Singh. The film opened to positive to mixed reviews from critics and was a hit at the box office.
Sai Dharam Tej's debut was Rey, produced and directed, by YVS Chowdary on his Bommarillu films banner. The film was launched at Ramanaidu Studios in Hyderabad on 17 October 2010 on the eve of Vijayadasami. The filming ended on 6 August 2013. Rey has been delayed due to financial issues and it was released on 27 March 2015. Sai Dharam Tej won SIIMA Award for Best Male Debut (Telugu) at 4th SIIMA and Best Debut Actor Award at the 13th Santosham Film Awards.
The story begins with a notorious politician Ganga Prasad (Sayaji Shinde), and a clean politician Prabhakar (Prakash Raj), vying for the CM's seat. An investigative journalist Shafi (Shafi), breaks a story on Ganga Prasad and reveals that he has some important information on the candidate aspiring to the next CM. In comes Maisamma (Jagapati Babu), a contract killer, who is assigned the task of finishing off Shafi by the SP (Ahuti Prasad). Once he is done with Shafi, Maisamma is given another photograph as the next contract. Meanwhile, it is time for the hero's debut, and he enters Srinu (Sai Dharam Tej) from Palakollu. He finds his way to Maisamma through Yadigiri (Raghu Babu) to seek his help to get rid of a person. Of course, Maisamma is not convinced and refuses to take up the task. That's when Srinu narrates how he fell in love with Shailaja (Regina Cassandra) and why he wants Maisamma to finish off a man. The scene shifts to an engineering college where both Srinu and Shailu are students, and from here on, the story takes a few surprise twists and turns. There ends the story. This movie kickstarted Tej's career, and hits like Solo Brathuke So Better and Prati Roju Pandage followed.
