As a kid, Raja (Taraka
Rama Rao Nandamuri) had to witness the brutal murder of his
parents at a young age, and ever since has sworn to avenge their deaths.
Eventually, he asks for justice from the family God, but when God doesn't
answer, Raja kills himself. Being faced with a dead boy, God comes to
earth and doesn't only return the boy to life but also equips him with
superpowers - so now everytime Raja sees danger or injustice, he turns
into Superman - also in costume.
Years later: Raja is engaged to Jaya
(Jayapradha), whose father is his partner in his gold mine - but there are
three men after the gold mine, Jai Singh, Sardar and Dharma Rao (Satyanarayana
Kaikala) ... who of course will eventually turn out to be
the three men who killed Raja's parents. Now Jai Singh, who has
remote-controlled elephants at his disposal, and Sardar, who is supported
by an army of fake ghosts, are easily dealt with, but Dharma Rao is
another issue altogether, since he uses cunning to get what he wants - and
thus he has his son Mohan impregnate Raja's sister, then pretends to agree
to a marriage between the two but asks for Raja's goldmine as dowry ...
and once the mine is signed over, he and his son beat it to Hong Kong.
Raja follows the two to Hong Kong, where Dharma Rao lures him into one
trap after the next, even uses a witch (Jayamalini), who at one point
drags Raja to hell and has him fight a monster, to stop him, but to no
avail, in the end Raja/Superman sees to it that justice prevails and his
parents are avenged, and in the end, Mohan, who didn't know about the
deviltry of his father, actually marries Raja's pregnant sister.
cheap Superman rip-off shot in South India in Telugu
language - and the film is exactly what this makes it sound to be: a
trashy andcheesy and campy superhero film peppered with less-than-special
effects, seasoned by song-and-dance routines aplenty (after all, this is
an Indian movie), carried by at best mediocre performances and based on a
clichéed plot. Plus, Superman looks rather ridiculous. And if this makes you think this is a bad movie, you are
of course essentially right, but it is also so much fun to watch.
