Mayadari Malligadu (1973)

Synopsis: Munasabu Gangaraju (Nagabhushanam) is an evil man while his son Ramu (Master Ramu) is god-fearing and honest. Gangaraju kills Bala Brahmandanda Swamy (Padmanabham) and puts the blame on Mallanna (Krishna), but Ramu sees the murder. Now, Ramu is in a dilemma - if he tells the truth, his father will die, and if he does not, then an innocent Mallanna will die. This thus creates in the movie an interesting story line.
