Telugu star Chiranjeevi plays the double role of the industrialist Ravi Teja and the stuntman Nagaraju. The industrialist’s major problem is his snobbish and uncaring wife Lalita (Madhavi). The stuntman supports his sister (Jayanthi) who believes her husband (Ranganath) and daughter (Bhanupriya) to be dead. The two lookalikes meet accidentally, but later exchange roles when Ravi Teja wants to go on a holiday with his secretary. Ravi Teja is accused of having murdered his secretary, but Nagaraju eventually solves all the problems, including the one with Teja’s wife whom he beats into submission. The most successful Chiranjeevi effort at multiple roles (cf. also Mugguru Monagallu, 1994, where he played a triple role). The film was later remade as Rowdy Alludu (1991).
