Tholi Valapu (English: First Love, Telugu: తొలివలపు) is a 2001 Telugu, romance film, produced by M. Nageswara Rao on T. Krishna Memorial Films banner, directed by Muthyala Subbaiah. Starring Gopichand and Sneha in the lead roles and music composed by Vandemataram Srinivas. This film was the debut of Gopichand. The film has been dubbed into Tamil as Hari and Hindi as Blast Barood. It didn't do so well at the box office and made Gopichand wait for a while to be a hero for his next film. However, the audio of the film was a success and the songs became huge hits.
Prem (Gopichand) lives with his friends in the city. His dream is to own a bike, and with some help from his rural agriculturist father (L.B. Sriram), he does get it. However, on the first night itself it gets punctured, and because there is no mechanic around so late, Prem decides to park it in a nearby house for the night. The door is opened by a very pretty girl Soumya (Sneha), and the smitten and dumbstruck Prem manages to explain his predicament and leaves the bike and keys. The next morning when he goes to pick up the bike, he doesn't find it, and the girl and her father (Chandramohan) completely deny any knowledge. Our man understandably gets riled and creates a ruckus, but to no avail. The story progresses and a thief is caught who admits to having burgled the house in question that night. But the father continues to stoutly deny any such happening. This obviously creates some confusion, and then the burglar reveals that he also raped the daughter. There has to be a villain somewhere - enter wicked son-in-law Kailash (P. Ravi Shankar), who is the husband of the elder daughter.
Music composed by Vandemataram Srinivas. All songs are Hit tracks. Music released Mayuri Audio Company.
