About the film:

Debut production of vauhini's predecessor, Rohini Pics, launching a local, Madras based Telugu film industry with the first Telugu reformist social made in the same year as the equally influential Raithu Bidda(1939).

The film tells of a decadent dancer, madhuri (Kanchanamala), who seduces the upright Dr. Krishna Rao (Ramanujachari) into leaving his good wife Radha (Kannamba). The doctor becomes an alcoholic and is framed for the murder of Vishweshwara Rao, the trustee of his father's estate. Krishna Rao's brother-in-law Gopinath ( Chittoor V Nagaiah) helps the hero and later offers shelter to a destitute Radha. Radha has scuffle with Madhuri, falls down the stairs and becomes mentally unbalanced, ending up in walking in the streets of Madras denouncing God, truth and justice.

Nagaiah's sensational debut included the two hits Kallu manandoyi (Leave the drinking) and the upbeat nationalist Lendu Bharata Veerulara! (Arise, soldiers of India). The films narrative style became a key model for Vauhini's sprawling melodramas, among the best-known Indian films in the genre. The film was apparently adapted popular stage play Rangoon Rowdy.
