- 1: Nenokkadine (2014) – Starring Mahesh Babu

- Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada ( 2016) – Starring Nikhil, Avika Gor
The name of the movie translates to “Where will you go my boy ” , but its a supernatural thriller with some hilarious comedy. Arjun, a young man, falls in love with Nithya. However, things complicate when he discovers she is possessed by an evil spirit

A good thriller with good climax.

- Raju Gari Gadhi – 2 (2017) – Starring Nagarjuna , Samantha.

Ofcourse this is not a Telugu film, but a Tamil one. One of the finest cop thriller i have seen. Theeran Thirumaran, an honest police officer, gets transferred multiple times. His life becomes difficult after he investigates the case of criminals who loot and ruthlessly murder people.
