Maro Prapancham

1970 155’ b&w Telugu d Adurthi Subba Rao pc Chakravarthi Chitra st B.S. Thapa sc K. Vishwanath dial Modukuri Johnson lyr Sri Sri c K.S. Ramakrishna Rao m K.V. Mahadevan lp Savitri, A. Nageshwara Rao, K. Jaggaiah, Gummadi Venkateshwara Rao, Padmanabham, Jamuna

Second and last of the ‘experimental’ co- productions featuring Subba Rao, star Nageshwara Rao and scenarist K. Vishwanath (cf. Sudigundalu, 1967). The earlier film had attacked the flaws in the legal system, and had won the state award of best film. Here, a revolutionary group calls for an end to all poverty and the social systems that curtain freedom of thought. The film used Sri Sri’s lyrics to push through their radical message. The commercial failure of this film ended both the experiment and Chakravarthi Chitra.
