Where did you watch this movie?

Liberally spiced with modern cinematic elements, this action drama is set against the backdrop of the tradition of 'Medaram Jatara' and how it is grandly celebrated with great faith. During the celebrations, a widow gives birth to twin girls, whom their grandmother aptly names, Sammakka and Sarakka. Then the history behind legend of the two women who have been given the place of tribal goddesses, Sammakka and Sarakka, is narrated. They were two women belonging to a tribal community, who are remembered for the great courage and sacrifice, as they laid down their lives to ensure the prosperity of the tribal community in the Telangana region. On that eventful day the festival of 'Medaram Jatara' is celebrated every year to pay homage to 'Sammakka and Sarakka'. There is a remote village in Telangana, where feudalism and tyranny of the wealthy landowners have crossed all limits. The place is ruled by a merciless landlord (Narra), whose four sons routinely rape and sexually harass the young women in the province. When their predatory gaze falls upon the beautiful and innocent twins 'Sammakka and Sarakka', they are promptly kidnapped and taken into the palace of landlord in order to be sexually exploited. However, Sammakka and Sarakka successfully escape and safely reach their grandfather's village. In time, they grow up and marry two servants of the landlord. At the time of the marriage, the landlord recognises Sammakka and Sarakka. He kills the bridegrooms and attempts to rape the twins. The young women succeed in killing the landlord; Sammakka escapes and joins a naxalite movement headed by 'Peddanna', but Sarakka is captured and subjected to torture by the sons of landlord. Naxalites kidnap the daughter of the landlord and ask the government to handover Sarakka in exchange of Landlord's daughter. Will Sammakka and the naxalites succeed in freeing Sarakka? Can Sammakka ensure that justice is served and the wrongdoers are punished?
