Story from idlebrain

Saradamba (Jayalalitha) is a beautiful wife of a landlord Narayana Swamy (Tanikella Bharani) in a village. She is a kind woman who is well known for her charitable work. Kanakayya (Tallavajjula Mehaneesh) is a bright student from a poor family and he gets a free lunch (vaaraalabbai) at Saradamba's house. Saradamba is very fond of Kanakayya.


One fine day, Kanakayya falls ill. The medicine offered by the regular doctor is of no use. Parents of Kanakayya call in Kalimata's devotee and medicine practitioner Gopayya (Tallavajjula Sundaram) from neighboring village for an advice. After the check-up, Gopayya declares that Kanakayya is suffering from Doshagunam. According to him, Doshagunam is caused when a boy has sexual intercourse with a middle-aged woman. Gopayya advices Kanakayya's parents that the only panacea for Doshagunam is a concoction prepared with the blood extracted from the thigh of woman who had sex with Kanakayya. That night Kanakayya utters the name of Saradamba repeatedly in the sleep and it turns the needle of suspicion towards Saradamba.

Did Saradamba seduce Kanakayya? Would she give blood for Kanakayya's medicine? Is Doshagunam really a scientifically proven ailment or a myth? To know the answers, you must watch this film on the big screen.

...It throws up a moral dilemma. Kanakkaya would rather die than live through the. Post traumatic disorder resulting from sex with Jayalalita. Yet, the viewer wants him to live and live well to make up for the torture he has been through.

I just loved this film! If this film was flawless, it would have been on my all time top films list. The film & characters were very well written. No film I've seen such authentic portrayal brahmin culture including the hypocrisies. What blew me away was the cultural subtleties. Contrasting of very similar yet different Vaidiki & niyogi cultures. I seriously think he should get into writing, considering his keen perception of people. He also comes from family of writers. He is grandson of a great writer Indraganti Hanumacchastry and son of Srikanta Sarma and Janaki baala.
