The film was released on July 24, 1998, and received immense critical acclaim, going on to become a cult classic in Telugu cinema. The story of Tholi Prema follows Balu (Pawan Kalyan), a young man who is disenchanted with the idea of love after witnessing his parents' tumultuous relationship. Despite this, he falls for a fellow college student named Anu (played by Kirti Reddy) and the two begin a relationship.

However, when Anu's father discovers their relationship, he forbids her from seeing Balu and arranges for her to marry someone else. Heartbroken, Balu moves to a different city and tries to start afresh, but he cannot forget Anu.

Years later, Balu comes across Anu again and learns that she is still unmarried. The two rekindle their relationship, but are faced with obstacles stemming from their past and the misunderstandings that drove them apart.

The film's music, composed by Deva, is another highlight. The songs, which range from soulful ballads to peppy numbers, are still popular amongst Telugu music lovers today. The film's cinematography, by Ravi K. Chandran, is also noteworthy, capturing the beauty of the locations and the emotions of the characters with equal finesse.
