It’s about the importance of honest government servants
Abhiram (Sai Tej) is a man who constantly questions the system’s flaws. Dashrath (Jagapathi Babu), his father, is a corrupt government employee. As a result of what he sees going on around him, Abhiram decides to join the IAS and is assigned to his hometown where he must deal with politicians such as Vishaka Vani (Ramya Krishna). The story is about how Abhiram navigates people in positions of power to help his hometown.
Sai Dharam Tej shines
