Tholi Muddhu (transl. The First Kiss) is a 1993 Indian Telugu-language teen romance film directed by K. Rushendra Reddy and starring Prashanth and Divya Bharati. The film is a remake of the 1990 Bollywood Super Hit Dil.[1] The soundtrack was composed by Ilaiyaraaja. The film was dubbed into Tamil as Ilam Nenje Vaa. This was the last Telugu film of actress, Divya Bharti which was posthumously released six months after her death. Unfinished portions were otherwise completed by actress Rambha, who slightly resembled the latter's original body (the credits were otherwise kept as Divya Bharti's name only throughout the film). The film was commercially successful.[2]


Prashanth and Divya get married without informing anyone. Soon enough, Divya's father tries to make their life a living hell.[citation needed]



Due to Divya Bharti's death on 5 April 1993, the film was partly completed by actress Rambha in Divya's role while Roja Ramani dubbed her voice.[3][4]
