This is a movie which makes me very nostalgic. I remember watching it on TV many times, and with each viewing the movie gets better and better like an Old Wine. Few movies can boast of leaving behind such a great legacy as this one, and still it remains very underrated and forgotten.

The story revolves around a man who time travels due to a series of unfortunate events. Though time travel is a very important part of the movie, its the human interaction and emotions that take the center stage. The concept is so unique and fun-filled that art amalgamates with commercial film making to create a unique blend of cinema. Traveling in both the past and the future is a brilliant thought, but a very dangerous one, since if badly executed it will be a big disaster. But, in this movie, past and future episodes are very well etched out and engaging.

If there is a sci-fi movie which is unparalleled in Telugu cinema, it is Aditya 369.
