Then Janatha Garage becomes a self-appointed group of citizens led by Sathyam who undertake law enforcement by killing the goons and making it look like an accident. Chandrasekhar becomes aware of this and warns against taking law in their hands as he is worried about the consequences.

Janatha Garage becomes popular among the local people as they believe that they'll get justice from them. Shiva marries a Mumbai-based man Suresh's sister, and they have a son Anand. One day Mukesh, a powerful business magnate with lot of criminal dealings and who was also the brother of a goon who was killed by Sathyam, visits and warns him. A few days later, Shiva and his wife get ambushed by Mukesh's men, and both are killed. Sathyam, fearing for Anand's safety, asks Suresh to take him away from Janatha Garage.

As the years pass, Anand grows up as an environmental science graduate and activist in Mumbai, who is against any activity which can harm the environment. Suresh's daughter Bujji and Anand are in love with each other, and her parents are happy with that. Anand also befriends a girl Anu, whom he scolds for using firecrackers. She falls for him, but does not tell him, because she knows that he is in love with Bujji. Gets into a fight with a powerful MLA, and fearing for his safety, Suresh sends him to Hyderabad under the pretext of a university exchange program. There he meets Sathyam's arrogant son Raghava, who married Mukesh's daughter without his parents' approval. Sathyam meets with an accident planned by Mukesh, but recovers. Janatha Garage is now inactive solving the problems of the common men as Sathyam and his allies are getting old. Anand fights off Raghava's thugs regarding an illegal mining field.

Anand quickly becomes a family member of the house. They save a strict government officer Vikas from some of Mukesh's men. Janatha Garage becomes popular among the public once again.

Chandrashekar, now the Commissioner of Police, finds out about Anand and brings Suresh and his family. Sathyam and others are shocked to know that Anand is his late brother's son. Suresh, who is bothered about Bujji's safety, asks Anand to choose either his daughter or Janatha Garage. Anand, with a heavy heart, chooses to stay with his father's family, and he and Bujji say goodbye tearfully. She marries a boy of her parents' choice. Meanwhile, Raghava and his wife leave Sathyam's house because of their uncultured lifestyle, creating a ruckus with Anand and the family. In order to overthrow the government, Mukesh and Raghava plan and execute a bomb blast in Hyderabad. Bose, one of Sathyam's closest friends, loses his loved one in the blast. The next day, Bose's body is found in the railway track, with reports citing he committed suicide out of depression. The police chief asks Chandrasekhar to close the case. He comes to Janatha Garage for help. Anand finds out that Bose was killed by Raghava as Bose had found that it was Raghava who planned the blasts. Sathyam decides that even though Raghava is his son, he doesn't deserve to live.

Anand and others from Janatha Garage beat up Mukesh's men in their hideout. Anand kills Mukesh, and Raghava pleads for mercy. Sathyam arrives and kills Raghava without remorse.

ReceptionEdit

Janatha Garage received positive reviews from critics, with critics praising the performances of Jr. NTR and Mohanlal respectively. Writing for The Times of India, critic Pranita Jonnalagada gave 3 out of 5 stars and stated "This Janatha Garage might give everyone a hand in repairs but they need a wee bit of repair themselves for sure. But that’s no reason to miss the film."[88] A critic from Sify gave 3 out of 5 and summarised "Janatha Garage is tailor made for those who are there to be excited about the hero's antics. Some repair to the script could have genuinely helped here."[89] Sangeetha Devi Dundoo of The Hindu, being more criticial on the script stated "NTR and Mohanlal’s performances save an otherwise tepid film."[90] Writing for Firstpost, critic Latha Srinivasan stated "Janatha Garage may not be one of director Koratala Siva's best films but it is a film that has its moments where Mohanlal and NTR Jr shine."[91]

S. Srivatsan of India Today, became more criticial and gave 1.5 out of 5 stating "Siva somehow readies the audience for a promising entertainer; however, ends up delivering a bland surreal revenge drama."[92] The Indian Express gave a negative review, stating, "Despite a good message, Mohanlal and Jr NTR film is a predictable, run-of-the-mill drama that fails to offer anything new" giving 2 out of 5 stars.[93] A review from Deccan Chronicle stated The film is slower than Koratala Shiva's earlier films and falls short of expectations, by giving the film two-and-a-half out of five stars.[94] However, a review from The New Indian Express, praised Mohanlal's acting and further stated "Janatha Garage could've been even better had it been a bit crisper and better packaged. But it's a decent film with a good story and some terrific performances."[95] 123 Telugu gave 3.25 out of 5 stars and stated "Janatha Garage is not your regular popcorn entertainer which Tollywood churns out every week. It is a character-driven film where the onus is on serious emotions."[96]

Sowmya Rajendran of The News Minute, panned the film as "it has been directed like a melodramatic mega serial".[97] News18 gave the film 3 out of 5 and then stated, "The one-line stories that Koratala tries to expand into feature films revolve around his heroes’ abilities alone."[98] Indiaglitz gave the film 2 out of 5 and stated "A routine hero-versus-villain story with a small innovation in the hero's characterization."[99] Behindwoods gave the film 2.75 out of 5 and stated that "a satisfying entertainer, despite being slightly cheesy".[100] Greatandhra.com rated Janatha Garage 2.75/5, stating " The movie can be watched for some moments in the second half and NTR’s terrific performance.
