The Telugu film industry, which is one of the biggest in the country, produces more than 200 films per year. Telangana’s film industry is known as Tollywood and is located in Hyderabad, which also has the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest film production facility, Ramoji Film City. Amazon and Hotstar, on the other hand, provide South Packs that comprise a number of Telugu blockbusters dubbed in Hindi or in its original form.
Netflix, on the other hand, continues to rely on its enormous library of international content while finding a new partner in streaming platforms like Amazon and Hotstar. If you’re looking to brush up on your Telugu vocabulary, you’ll have a hard time finding your movie on Netflix. But don’t worry, we’ve put together a list of some of the best Tollywood flicks. The following is a list of the best Telugu movies currently streaming on Netflix.
15. Bheeshma (2020)
With Nithiin Reddy and Rashmika Mandanna in the lead roles, this film is perfect for those searching for something light and entertaining to watch. Single Bheeshma, a meme creator, is fed up with her situation. He falls in love with Chaitra as soon as he sees her. It’s no secret that Bheeshma has a knack for cracking jokes at inopportune moments.
Venky Kudumula, the film’s director, adheres to what he does best. There is also a conflict between two corporations in the novel, one employing organic goods and the other chemically enhancing crops. However, Venky’s dramatic theatrics keep the film on a lighter note for the most part.
14. Spyder (2020)
A.R. Murugadoss’s thriller, starring Mahesh Babu, Rakul Preet Singh, and S.J. Surya, was shot simultaneously in Telugu and Tamil. An Intelligence Bureau officer named Shiva (Mahesh Babu) spies on phone calls and text messages to help individuals.

13. Manu (2018)
The main character of this 2018 drama/mystery, who is a painter, is first courted by a woman named Nila. At a pub, a misunderstanding between the two leads to an all-out brawl between the two of them. In the aftermath of Nila’s departure from the pub, Manu sees three gangsters harassing an elderly guy and intervenes to save him. He soon learns that these thugs have their sights set on Nila. Manu has no idea who or what Nila is dealing with. It’s imperative that he locates them before they wreak irreparable harm. In addition to the fantastic story, the film’s cinematography is also excellent. The film’s primary flaw, though, is its glacial pace, which renders it difficult to sit through.
12. Sarkar (2018)
Directed by A.R. Murugadoss, this high-octane action picture explores voting’s nefarious underbelly.

Rahman enhances the film’s drama and action.
11. Baahubali: The Beginning (2015)
Second installments of ‘Baahubali’ shattered practically all Indian box office records with its success. The astounding performance of Rajamouli’s two-part war spectacle astonished the entire nation. While other Indian filmmakers were anxious to make more Hollywood-like movies, he walked against the current. This time, Rajamouli went back to India’s rich mythology, another one of its most prized cultural legacies. He showed up with a tale of epic proportions, comparable in scope and grandeur to the Mahabharata or the Ramayana. ‘Baahubali’ became India’s most successful film when he was able to secure the necessary funding and technical expertise.
To begin, a newborn is saved from drowning by a tribal couple, Sanga and her husband in the thick forests of Mahismathi. As a young man, Shivudu develops a wide range of magical abilities. While on an excursion, he uncovers the mysteries of another world that lies beyond this enormous waterfall. Shivudu sets off on a perilous voyage against his mother’s wishes because he is curious. In order to get to the top of the waterfall, he has to climb all the way up. It’s an accident that brings him to the sovereign land of Mahismathi, where he meets his destiny and archrival Bhallala Deva: a rebel tribal girl.
10. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017)
‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ picks up right where the original film left off. Kattappa, the loyal slave warrior lord, kills Baahubali from behind at the end of “The Beginning.” The events leading up to the climax of ‘The Beginning’ are explained in the second installment. When Kattappa tells Shivudu that he is the prince of Mahishmati and the son of Amarendra Baahubali, Shivudu is stunned. Mahendra Baahubali, successor to Amerendra Baahubali’s throne and kingdom, which is now under the dominion of Bhallala Deva, is Shivudu’s true identity.
After saving him from drowning, he prepares a coup with the support of Kattappa’s tribal army, which includes his stepmother and stepfather. His faults included chaining Shivudu’s mother, Devasena, in an outdoor dungeon for years, and he had to pay a heavy price for it. Shivudu, Mahendra Baahubali, is gearing up for the big battle with the Kingdom of Mahishmathi and his mother, all of whom are anxiously anticipating the end of his father’s tremendous heritage.
9. Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi (2018)
An enjoyable buddy comedy, the Tharun Bhascker Dhaassyam-directed film ‘Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi’ tells the story of four friends who take an Indian coastal town known for its beaches on a vacation. One of these four individuals loses a valuable ring while having fun and frolicking. For the time being, the only way they can get their hands on the ring is to enter and win a short filmmaking competition and then spend the winnings on something comparable. Clichés are avoided with remarkable finesse in this picture, which presents a whole new and thrilling plot.
8. Neevevaro (2018)

7. Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo (2020)
As one of the most successful Telugu films, Trivikram Srinivas’s film was written and directed by him. Bantu, played by Allu Arjun, is a young guy who craves the approval of his father Valmiki (played by Murali Sharma). A wealthy businessman, Ramachandran, was revealed to be his biological father, rather than Valmiki, and he sets out to make his mark on the family he properly belongs to.
I think Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo is the perfect entertainment package since it encompasses everything from drama to action to romance and even swag. One of the most talked-about features of the picture is how well the actors perform.
6. Adhugo (2018)
Bunty, the pink piglet, is being chased by a village called ‘Adhugo,’ which is funny! Bunty is Chanti’s prized possession.

5. Evvarikee Cheppoddu (2019)
Both Hari, played by Rakesh Varre and Harathi, played by Gargeyi Yellapragada, belong to opposite castes and fall in love. Especially with Harathi’s conservative father, this is a challenge. The plot revolves around Hari’s efforts to win the approval of Harathi’s father. Despite the fact that love stories tend to be formulaic, this one manages to deliver a powerful social message while also featuring some of the best acting in recent memory. Caste discrimination is humorously addressed in this film, which does it with tact. Rakesh Varre is also the film’s producer, and he and Basava Shankar collaborated on the film’s director and script.
4. Oh! Baby (2019)
As the film’s plot revolves around the character of Savitri, also known as Baby, Samantha Akkineni’s portrayal of the character is both hilarious and heartwarming. A South Korean film, Miss Granny, serves as inspiration for the new film. In the event that you had a chance to go back in time, what would you do? The juxtaposition of someone who appears young but possesses the soul of a septuagenarian is the foundation of this comedic trip of a seventy-year-old. Oh! B.V. Nandini Reddy’s Baby, in which Samantha plays the title role, is widely regarded as one of her best performances.
3. Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya (2020)
According to the film’s synopsis, “The Angry Form of Uma Maheswara” aired on Netflix on July 30, 2020. Malayalam comedy Maheshinte Prathikaaram was the inspiration for the film’s English dub. After C.O. Kancharapalem, Venkatesh Maha’s second directorial effort, he is back with this movie. Mahash (Satyadev), a quiet and unassuming photographer who intervenes to break up an argument taking place in the local marketplace, is the subject of the film. In the aftermath of the incident, he swears an oath to never wear slippers again until he has retaliated. His oath is continuously put to the test by others and the circumstances. The protagonist’s naivety is heartwarming, and one can see how tiny changes in his life have a profound effect on him.
2. W/O Ram (2018)

Deeksha later draws the notice of some potentially hazardous individuals, raising the stakes even higher. In the right place at the right time, she receives assistance from an enthusiastic police officer who helps them move closer to finding the real culprit. W/O Ram’s conclusion and surprising twist in the story were widely praised when it was released.
