the author of mythological films like Sri Ramanjaneya Yuddham
(1974), Seetarama Kalyanam (1976), Bapu is best known for updating
of genre as a critic of modernity (e.g Manavuri Pandavulu).
film is a contemporary version of the Rama Legend. Sreedhar (Sreedhar),
the son of Raja Ramdas, marries Lakshmi (Sangeeta), who is earlier
seen with a pet monkey (evoking the monkey God Lord Hanuman).
The villain (Mukkamala) and his daughter (Jaya Malini), seek out
a modern Ravana (Ravu Gopal Rao), who hides a person in the wife's
bedroom so that husband will suspect an affair. Eventually, the
couple's twins bring their parents together and wreck revenge
on the Ravana figure.
Gopal Rao's out standing performance, Allu Rama Lingaiah portrayal
of monkey along with the twins cute pranks assured the films entertainment
value. A few of the Mullapudi dialogues that got a new meaning
with Ravu Gopal Rao's dialect are ...
Netthuti Gaddalaa Ledu? Aakasamlo Mardar Jariginatlu Ledu?"
tarvata kostanta kalaposana undala"
Eedni dikkilo tongopettu"
- "Eee mukka
nenu lekka ettaku mundhu cheppali. Asalu nenu lekkattanane ga
nee edava aalochana"
