Alluri Seetha Ramaraju

1974 NR

Krishna Ghattamaneni heads the cast in this elaborate epic recounting the events that gave rise to the Rampa Rebellion, focusing on the story of freedom fighter Alluri Seetharama Raju (Ghattamaneni). Rousing the populace in India's Northern Circar region to stand up for their fundamental rights, he spurred an insurgency whose forces ultimately took on the British army's Assam Rifles contingent. Vijaya Nirmala and Kongara Jaggaiah also star.
