The story begins with Vijay Varma, the son of the state’s late Chief Minister. As the state’s new Chief Minister, he wishes to erect a massive statue in his late father’s honour to be remembered in history. This action necessitates a sizable budget, for which he seizes funds from different sources.What follows this is how the actions of one man’s selfish needs affect the lives of others, sectioned in four stories.
- The first story is set in Varanasi, including a girl who elopes with a chaiwala because of love and mostly to escape her mother and the dangers in her home.
- The second story takes place in a village near Srikakulam that has been contaminated with a waterborne illness. Because of the water in the town, Gangamma’s granddaughter, like her son, is infected with kidney disease. All she has left is hope for a better future.
- The third story is about Rayalaseema, a 70-year-old man who runs an NGO and hopes for a better future for all of his country’s street children.
- The final story follows Bhanu, a street circus performer from Vizag who aspires to be an athlete and finds a coach, but it is never enough because she lacks government funding.
What ties all the stories together is later revealed to the Chief Minister by a journalist, who pragmatically informs him that people’s deaths and the destruction of some dreams were caused by his order to freeze funds. In the credits, the minister, guilt-ridden, inaugurates his father’s statue.If you think downloading movies can help you to stream recent Telugu movies faster and better, it is not always true, as downloading from unknown sources can cause bugs to malfunction your device.
