Kushi is the mile stone film in the pawan career. Infact his craze reaches peaks at that time. Infact the craze is more than annayya anatam lo sandeham ledu. So many fans converted to pawan kalyan fans after toliprema itself. After this somany failures his image was never damaged. We see how big the image with Gabbar Singh again. Annayya tammudi gaa vunnaa tankantu oka pratyekamaina style nu, fans base nu erparuchukunnadu.
This is one rare incident where Annayya in peaks at the same time tammudu also peaks in his career.
Records vishayaaniki vaste movie is one of the biggest hits of telugu cinema at that time. One more interesting fact about the movie is movie did extremly well in tamil nadu as well eventhough it is dubbed from tamil itself. At that time tamil industry is in full slump. This movie came as breeze for tamil cinema (Telugu version only). Tamil industry starts regaining it's momentum after this film huge success.
I saw this movie 8 times. I saw in tamil too. Vijay became darling for masses there with this. Pawan also got same kind of applause from our audience
