Plot / Movie Story / Movie Review
Kind-hearted gentleman Relangi Mavayya (Prakash Raj) lives in a West Godavari small village of Relangi. He is a good man and believes in human relationships. His wife (Jayasudha) managed the affairs of the family. There is a bamma (Grandmother). And then there are his two sons Peddodu / Mallikharjuna Rao (Venkatesh) and Chinnodu / Seetha Rama Raju (Mahesh Babu) into whom the values of Relangi Mavayya imbibed. The two sons are educated but employed. The two differ each other in their way of life.
While the elder son is stubborn and speaks straight on the face, the younger one is street smart and knows how to pave his own way. Being unemployed is a remark on them.
Peddodu is liked by his Maradalu Seetha (Anjali) who takes care of him. Seetha loses her parents but she is not an orphan because she grows up in the house of Relangi mavayyas as if she is their own family member. Everyone knows Peddodu will be married to Seetha but his lack of job is a big deterrent. Added to this, there is a younger sister (Abhinaya) in the family who is not yet married.
Seeta's paternal uncles Rao Ramesh and Ahuti Prasad have washed off their hands, absolved themselves of any responsibilities after their brother married Prakash Raj's sister and their subsequent death.
Chinnodu is popular amongst the women folk of the village and everybody falls in love with him. However, he falls in love with Geetha (Samantha). However, Geetha's father (Rao Ramesh) who is close to the family of Relangi mavayya believes in success, money and fame than anything else. He sees low at Relangi Mavayya's low income levels and this strains the relations between the two.
