Yoganand’s successful debut. The educated Usha (Lalitha), a 50s Telugu stereotype, marries the hero (NTR) despite the protests of her family. She then takes on, and vanquishes, the oppressive feudalist practices of her husband’s family. The film concentrates on its female lead, featuring the Ammalakkalu (neighbourhood women) indulging in dances, bicycle picnics and pranks before getting down to the story.
