Meghamala is a break-away from the routine Telugu soaps. The serial is gaining popularity due to its unique presentation rivaling Tollywood movies and (surprisingly) good acting by all the actors.
The narrative of the serial is novel and lively, a complete contrast to the routine daily Telugu serials. Though cannot be said to be fast, the narrative is not as slow as the other Telugu TV Serials. Departing from the cliche of Telugu serials, there is much less of weeping and hysteric women characters. The inclusion of the element of humor has made Meghamala to stand out from its contemporary serials.
Casting is excellent as those who are best suited to the role have been selected. Upholding the faith of the producers and director, all the actors did a splendid job.Special mention has to be made of the performance of the actor playing the role of Rishi’s father, “Virinchi”. He grabbed the opportunity with both hands and is acting like a pro.
Ramana Gogula’s title track is a special attraction. Both the hero and heroine are excellent dancers, as can be seen in the title song.
Meghamala stands at par with the Telugu movies in more than one department, especially that of costumes. The costumes of Rishi are not only trendy but also well suited to his body and built.
The serial received attention before it is launched due to the support given by S.S.Rajamouli. In the initial episodes, some of the popular figures of the Telugu film industry made a cameo appearance in the serial. That too helped in broadening the viewer base.
Overall, Meghamala can be considered a successful attempt to redefine the Telugu TV serials. It has been successful in attracting the Urban Youth to prime time television shows, which has never been done before.

Meghamala is a tender and wonderful love story in the back drop of colourful and glamorous Film Industry.
Story starts in Hampi; the historical capital city of King Krishna Devaraya. Little Megamaala is like a cute flower, blossoming on the banks of River Tungabhadra. She is a beautiful classical dancer. Because of the happenings in the family, she, along with her mother sharada moves to Hyderabad.
Rishii, the Hero of the story is the only son of a legendary Film Director. Very egoistic Rishi meets Meghamala and the situation created a hatred for Meghamala in the mind of Rishi. Both became like rivals.
After few years….Rishi becomes a Film hero in tollywood and Meghamala becomes a choreographer in the same Industry. Incidentally they both started working for a film. The two, who developed extreme hatred.. showly started falling in love. But… ‘Ego’ stopped them from expressing the feel of heart.
How, this war of roses happened in their lives…is to be seen on small screen, only on ETV every day @ 8.30 Pm, Monday to Saturday.
