In Ambajipeta village, President Peddayya (Nasser) comes to the aid of Kistaiah’s (Nagarjuna) family during a tough time. Kistaiah, a loyal supporter, has a deep affection for Mahalaxmi, also known as Varalu (Ashika Ranganath). However, an unexpected incident creates a rift between them. Dasu (Shabeer Kallarakkal), who is Peddayya’s son, harbors ill intentions towards Kistaiah and his brother Anji (Allari Naresh). What causes this rivalry? Why did Varalu and Kistaiah’s paths diverge? And what role does Bhaskar (Raj Tarun) play in this intricate story? All these questions find their answers in this captivating movie.


The movie, set in Ambajipeta in 1963, unfolds a tale of loyalty, love, and revenge. Kistaiah, an orphan, finds solace in Anji’s family after his mother’s passing. The plot takes a turn when Varadaraju(Rao Ramesh) demands repayment, leading to Peddayya stepping in to help. The loyalty forged in Kistaiah towards Peddayya becomes a central theme. As the story spans years, unspoken love between Kistaiah and Varalu faces hurdles, including Varalu’s forced separation.

In 1988, the narrative shifts to Kistaiah’s life with Anji’s family. The film skillfully portrays Kistaiah’s enduring love for Varalu, who manages her father’s business. The characters grapple with societal expectations, unspoken feelings, and personal sacrifices. The plot thickens as past events resurface, involving Peddayya’s son Dasu and the simmering rivalry with neighboring village president Veerabhadrudu.

The film’s strengths lie in Nagarjuna’s charismatic portrayal of Kistaiah, Ashika Ranganathan’s commendable performance as Varalu, and Allari Naresh’s entertaining presence. The music by MM Keeravaani  enhances emotional tones, contributing to well-crafted pre-climax and climax scenes.

The technical aspects shine with impressive background scores, good editing, and cinematography. Despite some shortcomings, the film successfully delivers emotional moments, portraying the bond between characters. A more nuanced screenplay and character development could have elevated the movie further.

In conclusion, the film resonates with audiences through its portrayal of love, loyalty, and revenge. While it may not break new ground in terms of storyline, it compensates with strong performances, effective music, and well-executed emotional scenes. Overall, it offers an engaging cinematic experience, blending drama, action, and sentimentality.
