Hyderabad, Aug 9 (IANS) Chiranjeevi starrer "Shankar Dada Zindabad", a Telugu remake of super hit Hindi film "Lage Raho Munna Bhai", is right on top. But critics feel the remake is not as good as the original that had Sanjay Dutt in the lead role.

The top five Telugu films are:

1. "Shankar Dada Zindabad" - The sheer presence of megastar Chiranjeevi is enough to propel this movie to the top slot. It may stay there till "Yamdonga" hits the screens Aug 15. The general opinion is that the movie has nothing new and is not as endearing as the original, but it will work because of Chiranjeevi.

2. "Lakshyam" - The film is a mix of entertainment, action and emotions and has been received well. Gopichand, Jagapathi Babu and Anushka play important roles in the film.

3. "Dhee" - The film will complete 100 days in a month and is still doing good business.

4. "Aadavari Matalaku Ardhalu Verule" - The performance of Venkatesh and Trisha has contributed to the success of Selvaraghavan's mainstream flick. The family entertainer is doing well and is on its way to the 100-day mark.

5. "Operation Duryodhana" - An offbeat film, "Operation Duryodhana" is slowly picking up. Srikkanth's performance and a rather realistic subject seem to have gone in the film's favour.
