Comic melodrama in which an animal plays the role usually reserved for the hero. Gajendra the elephant witnesses the murder of its master (Gummadi), a retired forest officer, and is later won by Rajendra (Prasad) in a lottery. Gajendra tracks down the killers and rounds up some thugs, in the process finding its new master a business, and is also instrumental in Rajendra finding a girlfriend, Alaka (Soundarya). The film continues Reddy’s distinctive style of the fantasy melodrama with a moral message, invoking a genre associated with the AVM studio.
