Telugu star Krishna produces this big-budget film which introduces CinemaScope to Telugu cinema. He stars as the famous revolutionary Alluri Seetaramaraju, an anti-imperialist tribal leader who founded the early peasant movements in the state before he was sentenced to death by the British. Remembered for the lyrics by radical poet Sri Sri, the film’s success spawned a wave of biopics of historical as well as mythological figures, usually presented as major challenges to the star actors.
