Notes: This movie had a 300-day run.
This's inspired from Dilip Kumar's Bollywood blockbuster 'Kranthi'.
Palagummi Padmaraju, the well known writer, was also given contribution in making of the script.
The dialogues written by Dasari in this movie became so popular that the LP records and cassettes of the audio track of the movie sold like hot cakes.
After the movie finished a 50-day run, the song 'Jyothilakshmi Cheerakattindi' was added to it. Sri Sri's 'Vinara Bharatha Veera Kumara', a Burrakatha, rendered by the famous 'Burrakatha Benarjee' is ever-popular.
