“Work Hard in silence, let your work do the talking”, is a phrase is definitely not best suited for Allu Arjun. His off-screen character does all the talking, which probably undermines his acting ability. He made several headlines for not many good reasons. But that is just an occupational hazard. In fact, I feel that a charismatic superstar should be flamboyant. And Allu Arjun is nothing but flamboyant. Be it with his choice of cinema or his performances. The actor is all about pushing boundaries. His passion and dedication earned him his place in the Telugu film fraternity. He stands as an example of how nepotism will only provide opportunity, but it’s hard work that keeps you on your feet in the unforgiving, ruthless profession. In an attempt to glorify a roller coaster of a career, here is the list of top 9 Allu Arjun films that you can watch. Read on. You can watch some of these best Allu Arjun movies on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
9. Rudramadevi (2015)
Rudramadevi is the first Stereoscopic 3D movie in India. It is a historic epic that released after the magnum-opus Baahubali released, which rocketed the expectations. That is probably one of the factors that outdid the movie. But the best part of the movie is Allu Arjun. He totally owns the character of Gona Ganna Reddy. Despite having limited screen time, he lights up the screen with his pure class. He emerged as the star power and also the driving factor of the movie. The movie is not one of the best, though it was lauded for its attempt. But it deserves a mention due to the charismatic Allu Arjun.

8. Parugu (2008)
‘Parugu’ is about a carefree, young and flamboyant lad, who is always on the move, more like a hippie. This nature of his justifies the title, which literally translates as “Run”. But when love strikes, he stops. He falls head-over-heals for a woman, and makes it his mission to marry her. But that is where the issues rise. The movie didn’t do well in terms of revenues, probably because it was slightly ahead of its time. The intense yet relatable emotions between characters are a stand-out in the movie. Allu Arjun’s commitment towards his part looks evident throughout the film. Presence of veteran actor Prakash Raj helps the proceedings. The way these two actors compliment each other on the screen is great to watch.

7. Race Gurram (2014)
Allu Arjun plays a loud, some times over-the-top boy next door in ‘Race Gurram’. That being said, he is probably one of the few actors, like Salman Khan, who can pull of such roles. The movie is all but flying cars, bouncing bodies and some highly unrealistic stunts. But one thing the movie assures is two hours of fun. It might not be sensible, subtle ore even logical. But there’s nothing wrong in setting sense aside and enjoy a movie. The film was dubbed into Hindi as ‘Lucky the Racer’ and turned out to be a popular television and internet hit. It played a vital role in expanding Arjun’s popularity across the country.

For years before release of ‘Julayi’, Arjun had been doing roles which best suit him. A happy-go-lucky lad with some problems and bad guys around him. He faces all the threats and emerge victorious. Although this movie is no different. But what makes the movies one if the best movies of his, a director called Trivikram Srinivas. The way a common story is treated by the director makes the movie a great watch. One of the biggest traits of Trivikram is his ability to write a screenplay that entertains the audience without a second taught, and write dialogues that keep us glues to the eat. He succeeds in harnessing these traits to best use in his movie and makes it one of his, and Arjun’s best movies.

2. Arya 2 (2009)
Arya 2 came out into the cinemas amidst huge anticipation as it was the sequel of a blockbuster. The maker, Sukumar and Allu Arjun might till date be regretting their decision to name the movie as a sequel to a successful movie. The story if the movie had nothing to do with the first installment except for the names of the characters. The movie turned out to become a debacle at the box office because when the audience get served something other than what they expect, we tend not to digest it. But one cannot help but wonder how good the movie might’ve turned out to be if it was released as an original rather than a sequel. It increased the standard of works of all the people involved with it. The characters, the screenplay and the triangular love story among the lead actors makes the movie a great watch.
