Storyline

Billa, a ruthless international crime lord wanted in at least eleven countries, operates from Kuala Lumpur. The only person he answers to is his unseen boss: "Devil." ACP Krishna Murthy is one of several officers working with Interpol to catch Billa. But when one of his informants is killed, Murthy begins to suspect a mole within the police. Eventually, Billa is killed, and Murthy is the only witness. When he learns of Ranga, a pickpocket and Billa-lookalike; Murthy sets up a secret operation. Ranga takes Billa's place to learn the gang's secrets. Chased by the law, suspected by the gang, and hunted by a vengeful femme-fatale; Ranga finds himself in extreme danger from all sides.

I Watch This Movie and it is So awesome Movie
22 July 2011 | by (IMDB) – See all my reviews

It is Action Movie.You can Watch This Movie For enjoyable.Billa (Telugu: బిల్లా) is a 2009 Telugu language film directed by Meher Ramesh, an exact remake of the Tamil Film Billa (2007 film). But some scenes were changed to suit the Telugu audience. It also drew inspirations from the Telugu film, Yugandhar (1979) which drew inspirations from another Hindi film titled Don and one of Rajinikanth's Tamil film with the same title. Prabhas Raju Uppalapati plays the lead role, where he plays dual roles of the characters Billa and Swami Ranga, with Anushka Shetty and Namitha playing the heroines.[1] The film, which began in October 2008, released in April 2009.[2] Actress Jayasudha, who had earlier starred in Yugandhar (1979) as Jaya, the first Telugu remake of Don, has a guest role as Janaki in this
