After Baahubali, Rangasthalam and Khaidi No.150 from the big stars, this is the first debut movie ever, with new faces, to join the Rs. 100 Crores club in the history of Telugu film industry. In a fierce competition to hit a blockbuster, Panja Vaishnav arrived in style and marked his place.
Uppena is the love story of Aasi (Panja Vaishnav) who is a fisherman and Bebamma (Krithi Shetty) an innocent college going girl. How they overcome the hurdles of caste and evil clutches of Rayanam (Vijay Sethupathi) forms the plot.
We at Telugu Filmnagar Congratualate Panja Vaishnav, Krithi Shetty and the team of Uppena for their blockbuster success.
