The narrative revolves around Bantu (Allu Arjun), a skilled middle-class man who is despised and often neglected by his father Valmiki (Murali Sharma). What Bantu doesn't know is that he's actually the son of a businessman swapped by Valmiki with his own son to give the latter a comfortable life. A violent incident draws Bantu closer to the truth, upon learning which he decides to enter Vaikunthapuram, the home of his real parents and eventually confront those who threaten his family.

User Reviews

Usual telugu family commercial
19 January 2020 | by saru2020See all my reviews

Telugu cinema and its audiences are going no-where, they all want to have the same old food each & every day with tweaks here & there, they simply seem to be averse to drastic changes. This film also comes with the same old story with no big changes in the screenplay too but the making seemed a little bit fresh since they removed many details like adding effects & build-ups to each & every scene after & before the hero comes. People have started to watch Allu Arjun movies just to watch him dance and nothing else.
