Janaki (Kamalinee Mukherjee) is an orphan who crosses many hardships in her life. She manages to finish her MBBS degree and become a doctor. She understands everyday hardships of the common man and wants to serve people as much as she can, so she works in a hospital and spends much of her earnings and time to charity. On the other hand, Abhiram (Sharwanand) was the only son and heir of the multimillionaire GK. He grows up amongst all the luxuries and finishes his education in London. He comes back to Hyderabad and spends much of his time in parties and with women. He sees Janaki and gets attracted to her. Abhi accepts a challenge with his friends that he would woo Janaki and get her to bed. He starts to grow a relation with Janaki and gets attracted to her, but her lifestyle was completely different from him. On Abhi's birthday party, Janaki comes to know about his bet and confronts him. He accepts that he was involved in a bet, but he truly loves her and wants to spend his life with her. She angrily leaves the party, and Abhi comes to drop her at her hostel. Their quarrel continues, and they meet with an accident where a woman dies and her son gets orphaned. Janaki survives the accident, but Abhi meets with injuries. When he wakes up at the hospital, he is told that Janaki left for her orphanage. Abhi wants to meet her and ask for her apology. In the process, he meets a goodhearted motorbike thief named Gaali Seenu (Allari Naresh) who accompanies him in his journey. The journey Abhi takes changes his life drastically: he is exposed to the hard realities of rural life and its simple joys. The landscapes and the people he meet take him through an emotional journey that alters his perceptions forever and aid in his journey to self-discovery.




Director Krish completed his graduate studies in the United States and returned to India with the sole intention of becoming a filmmaker. Because his parents were not supportive, he started an education consulting firm. Meanwhile, he worked as an assistant to Rasool, who directed Okariki Okaru. After a year and a half of success, Krish returned to his dream of making films. When travelling across the state of Maharashtra during a research on a film topic, he connected with his vehicle driver. From here, he obtained the initial inspiration and wrote a story about two people with different outlook towards life travelling together.[1]

Initially, Krish wanted to make this story in Hindi. With Aaj Jeeyenge as the title, one of his ideas was to picturise the story starting in Delhi, travelling through Bihar and ending the film's climax in Chhattisgarh. On occasion, he met Nagaraju Gandham, a Nandi Award-winning theatre writer. With Gandham, Krish prepared the script. When the daughter of a popular producer of Telugu films approached him if he had any scripts for a small-budget film, he narrated the story which was now based in the state of Andhra Pradesh. To further tighten the loose ends in his script, Krish consulted with his family, friends and well-wishers in the film industry such as K. Raghavendra Rao, Gangaraju Gunnam and Sirivennela Sitaramasastri. After undergoing several modifications and changes, the eighth version of the script was decided to be the final one. Without commitment from any producer, he decided to produce the film.[1] Eventually, his father Saibaba Jagarlamudi produced the film.[2]
