Where did you watch this movie?

Family melodrama about the decline of a feudal patriarch and the rise of a new generation with different values. The head of the family, Nayudu (Nagaiah), severs relations with his sister’s family since he holds his brother-in-law responsible for his father’s death. He also refuses to let his son Prasad (Nageshwara Rao) marry Padma (Savitri). The family becomes impoverished and Prasad has to restore both his father’s honour and the family fortunes. He also marries Padma. Released at the same time as Kulagothralu (1962), also a family melodrama interspersed with comedy routines, Pullaiah’s film flopped despite his reputation in Telugu cinema.
