Okka Magaadu

Okka Magaadu (transl. One Man) is a 2008 Telugu-language patriotic action film written, produced and directed by YVS Chowdary on his Bommarillu banner. Starring Nandamuri Balakrishna, Simran, Anushka Shetty and Nisha Kothari and music composed by Mani Sharma.

The film is inspired by the 1996 Tamil film Indian (which was dubbed into Telugu as Bharateeyudu), which starred Kamal Haasan and was directed by S. Shankar. The film was a ‘Disaster’ at the box office amidst high expectations and vibe around the film at that time.


Plot

Veeravenkata Satyanarayana Swamy (Nandamuri Balakrishna) is beloved by villagers whose lives were forever changed by his presence. His grandmother, Baby (Simran), whose husband had dedicated his life to gaining independence for his country, was taken as a prisoner of war and declared Missing In Action. Meanwhile, corrupt doctors, lawyers, and journalists are allegedly killed, but their bodies were never found. Suspected of the murders, Swamy is arrested, but an old man named Okka Magadu (Nandamuri Balakrishna) comes forward and claims to have committed the alleged murders. Okka Magadu looks like the older version of Swamy, whose sworn enemy is Namboodriyar (Ashutosh Rana), a politician whose son elopes with a middle-class girl under Swamy's protection.
