Desamuduru is the immediate next film of Puri Jagannath after Pokiri. The songs of the movie struck the chord of the masses and therefore, expectations over the movie shot up. The movie opened up to a mixed talk initially but the openings were the highest for an Allu Arjun movie. Finally it ended up as an average grosser.
Desamuduru is the first combination of Puri Jagannadh and Allu Arjun. Later they paired up for a movie titled Iddarammayilatho… several years later.
This was Hansika Motwani’s debut film who was earlier popular as a child artist.
- Hansika was just 16 years old when she started her filmy career with Desamuduru.
- Yesteryear actress Rambha shook her hip along with Allu Arjun for an zesty item number in the movie after a hiatus in Telugu cinema.
- Allu Arjun started the 6 pack abs fever in Tollywood with this film. It is after him, other heroes actually concentrated on their physique.
