Chitram! Bhalare Vichitram!! is a 1991 Telugu comedy film. The ensemble cast blockbuster film was directed by P. N. Ramachandra Rao, which is a remake of the 1989 Marathi comedy blockbuster "Ashi Hi Banwa Banwi" Upon release the film received very positive reviews, and remained a cult classic. The film was later remade into Kannada as Bombat Hendthi (1992) and Tamil as Aanazhagan (1995).
Raja (Naresh), Sudhakar (Subhalekha Sudhakar), Raghava (Maharshi Raghava), Brahmanandam (Brahmanandam) are good friends and stay together as tenants at Gorojanala Garudachalam (Kota Srinivasa Rao). After being thrown out of the house they start searching new house for rent but no one are ready to give their house for bachelors.
Finally, they land up in a place where the landlady insists on having a family as her tenants. The four bachelors dress up to be a man (Sudhakar), his retarded brother (Raghava), his father (Brahmanandam) and his wife (Naresh). Now Naresh's (called "Prema" and who happens to be in a woman's attire) lady love happens to be the landlady's daughter and all hell breaks loose.Naresh as Nimmagadda Rajeswara Rao "Raja" / Prema

Vidyasagar, a relatively newcomer at that time, gave a few really good tunes with the notable ones being the "Seetalu Yerugani" and "Maddela Daruvei". The melodious former, sung by Sailaja and Chitra, and shot on the occasion of Prema's Seemantam ceremony which is still being played at Seemantam functions in Hyderabad, is borrowed from the Marathi original tune "kruneetari yenara..."(shot similarly on a Godh-barai), beautifully customized to suit the Telugu/South Indian taste."Brahmachaarulam"
"Aho Priya Mettaga"
The voice for the female character of Naresh (as "Prema") was given by the veteran dubbing artiste Roja Ramani which enhanced the said role and became one of the major highlights of the movie. She admitted in one of the interviews that this was one of the memorable movies she had dubbed for, with she having split her sides for most of the scenes involving Naresh! She so excellently modulated her voice that it perfectly suited the role and all the scenes involving Prema became invariably and hauntingly hilarious. Naresh also did great justice to the voice by his brilliant acting and beautifully getting into the skin of the character without any inhibitions usually associated with such roles that militate against natural performance. The voice for the old disguise character of Brahmanandam was given by Mimicry artist Mimicry Nageswara Rao [alias] Mittipati Nageswara Rao to mimic veteran actor Nagabhushanam.Nandi Awards
