Summary: Inaugurating a fresher idiom for 50s Telugu melodrama, this is a love quartet: the rich lawyer Vijay (Mukkamala) marries village girl Nirmala (Anjali Devi), but Tara (Varalakshmi), who wanted to marry Vijay, tries to disrupt the marriage, and Chandrayya, who loved Nirmala, also features in the intrigue. Telugu megastar Anjali Devi’s first major lead role and pioneering Telugu director Reddy’s last film. Sivaji Ganesan dubbed Mukkamala in the Tamil version.
