One of the main reasons India is looked up to by many other countries around the world is because of our rich culture and traditions. And if you ask what keeps us Indians bonded with each other, a common answer would be the values and ethics that have been induced into us by our parents and family. Though as time passed by, some families moved abroad diluting the family attachments, with the smart world, we have totally forgotten to bond with our families.

However, Telugu cinema has always taken its time to remind us about our families and those small joys that fill our hearts with warmth. Here we just tried to bring out the best Telugu family movies in recent times that showed family bonding as a whole at its best. While there were many Telugu movies that show some great family bonding back in those times of NTR, ANR, Shoban Babu and Krishna, we have only picked family movies in Telugu in recent times.

  • Ninne Pelladatha (1996)

    Krishna Vamsi is known for churning some of the best family dramas and this movie will always be the first example in this regards. The way a family cares for the most pampered kid in the house, Srinu and how they stand by him at all times will never get you cautious about the movie’s progress. It feels like you watch your family on screen and when it comes to occasions, it's just a complete celebration.

  • Kalisundam Raa (2000)

    Another movie that talks about unity amongst families has enthralled the Telugu audience. This Venkatesh and Simran starrer movie talks about the extent a grandson goes for the happiness of his family and the way he becomes an anchor in uniting two families who broke their bond due to some silly feuds.

    Another Krishna Vamsi flick that shows the beauty of a joint family. The movie in which Mahesh plays the title role ‘Murari’ is seen pampered by the whole family and the way they take part in every celebration is a pleasure not just to the eyes but to the heart as well.

  • Santhosham (2002)

    When a daughter marries a man against her parents wish, it is bound to lead to a rift with the parents and they are bound to cast her away. This has been an issue most children face with their parents. Santosham that stars Nagarjuna, Gracy Singh and Shreya in lead roles addresses this issue and how the opposed son-in-law makes his way into his wife’s family is beautifully narrated through some heart-warming emotions.

  • Sankranthi (2005)

    Like every family, the family in this Venky-Srikanth multi starrer too have their own share of issues to deal with, but at the end it is the elder brother Raghvendra who molds his family into an ideal one. The movie emphasizes on the beauty of a joint family and their love to stay united.

  • Bommarillu (2006)

    We are sure this is the first movie that would come to everyone’s mind when you talk about Telugu cinema and family relations. A movie that came a decade ago showed those minute intricacies involved between an over-caring father and his son. Unlike mocking at fathers and fighting blindly against him, Siddhu played by Siddharth not only points out his frustration, but also talks about the importance of a father in a family. It’s just beauty!
