Chiranjeevi plays the dual roles of a Mumbai-based auto driver, Johnny, and an industrialist, Kalyan, who because he was interfering with the plans of the villains, led by Kota Srinivasa Rao, is first temporarily replaced by Johnny, and then framed for the murder of Kalyan's trusted employee, J. V. Somayajulu. Johnny realizes that he ruined the life of a good man and joins forces with Kalyan. They pretend to be each other, in order to save Kalyan. After the villains prove in court that Kalyan was the killer by replacing the rod of the murder weapon with one that has his finger prints on it, Johnny captures the villains and saves Kalyan.



The film was intended as a mass entertainer.[3] Allu Ramalingaiah originally questioned the use of the word Rowdy as a prefix to the title name, but was convinced to use the name by K. Raghavendra Rao, Chiranjeevi and Satyanand.Divya Bharti , the then popular telugu actress , was signed for the role of Rekha and Shobana was signed for the role of Sita.[3]One of the first movies in Tollywood to be shot in Switzerland, the budget didn't allow the producers to take a big crew to Zermatt. The producer Allu Aravind himself worked as costume and make up assistant for Chiranjeevi and Shobana made herself up. The actors and the director came up with the choreography based on the light and scenery around them for the 3 days they had to shoot the "Chiluka Kshemama" song.
