Tholi Prema (English: First Love) is a 2018 Indian Telugu language coming of age romantic comedy film. It is directed by debutant Venky Atluri and is produced by B. V. S. N. Prasad under his banner Sri Venkateswara Cine Chitra. It features Varun Tej and Raashi Khanna in the lead roles.

The film was originally going to be released on 9 February 2018, but was pushed back by one day to 10 February 2018 in order to avoid clashing with other films, Inttelligent and Gayatri. It was remade in Bengali in 2018 as Fidaa starring Yash Dasgupta. The film received positive reviews from critics and was emerged as a 'Hit' at box office .[1][2]


The film starts with Aditya "Adi" Shekar (Varun Tej) searching frantically for his love in London, where she's missing. The film cuts to a flashback and Adi starts talking about how he is successful at work but his love life is a failure. The flashback starts with Adi giving a revenge to his college professor for his 2 years of miserable life in college. After the principle found out it was Adi, he decided to leave the place. He is on the train and that's where he meets Varsha (Raashi Khanna). He instantly falls in love with her and does many tactics to win her heart. Varsha is a very reserved girl while Adi is outgoing. Adi proposes to Varsha and he expected an answer by the morning where the journey ends, but to his surprise when he woke up, Varsha was nowhere to be found.

Adi joins college and about 3 months have passed and he has no idea where Varsha is. To his surprise, he finds Varsha and she tells him that she enrolled in his college just for him by paying a lot of money. Varsha gives a lot of signs that she is in love with him but she doesn't say those 3 words to Adi which he tries extremely hard for.

Their love blossoms and eventually they break up because of Adi's impulsive nature. Six years have passed and Aditya is a successful student, topping his college, but is unable to forget Varsha. Varsha and Adi both meet up in his workplace and at first, Adi hates her while Varsha yearns for his attention. Slowly, they both become friends and yet Adi does not admit that he is still in love with her and hurts Varsha.

They both get into a fight and Varsha gives him back the things Adi gave her 6 years ago when they were in a relationship. He opens the box and finds out that she kept the love he gave her and the hate he gave her and realizes that she only decided to come back Adi's life after 6 years because she still loves him. He realizes that he still loves her and runs back to find her only to realize that Varsha is gone. He runs and he finally finds her in a train station and he proposes to her. The story ends with both embracing with a kiss.
