142 min

A Ram Gopal Varma Film

Based on a few people

who lived in Vijayawada

three decades ago and

on incidents which happened then

Kill! Just Kill!

Kill! Just Kill!

Kill! Just Kill!

Kill! Just Kill!

One who is afraid can never become

a Gangster Vangaveeti Radha

Kill...Just Kill!

She is the Goddess who can take anybodys

life effortlessly sitting atop a hill

and looking at the Rowdies

of Vijayawada

You may be the most powerful rowdies but at

the end, your lives will become a pile of ash

despite she explained giving

the historical examples

Yet...none of them cared

Because...courage was born first

and then rowdies

One who is scared of death can

never become a rowdy

Because they dont know fear,

they are called Rowdies

The origin to this Rowdyism was a man

who held a blood drenched red flag

He dared and took an oath to change the

system that could never be changed

With a hope that their weak lives

will become strong, some joined him

The revolution lit fire even in

the toiling rickshaw pullers

Looking at them,

even the taxi drivers joined him

Eventually...hundreds joined him

To fortify this movement...

and remove few mindless opposers...

sometimes, he used his sword

He was no ordinary Rowdy...

he was the boss...

An unofficial unofficial judge

His name was...Venkata Rathnam

During that time, rowdies in many areas

called themselves as Venkata Rathnams men

Except one small time Rowdy

His name was Radha

He was fondly called as

Bus Stand Radha in his area

His surname...Vangaveeti!

Vangaveeti! Vangaveeti! Vangaveeti!

Vangaveeti! Vangaveeti! Vangaveeti!

Vangaveeti! Vangaveeti! Vangaveeti!

Vangaveeti! Vangaveeti! Vangaveeti!

This is the sword of Vangaveeti

The power of protection

This is the sword of Vangaveeti

The power of protection

My name is Radha

Without even considering he is your friend,

How dare you collect money as per your whims

What did you think...

Suri has no one?

Sir...he will die!

Spare him sir

Because of people like you...

these mishaps happen

If this repeats

I will come to your house

and kill you

If we have to change

greedy people like him...

... A revolution should come

Unless the red flag waves

on Delhi fort...

that change wont happen

What should we do with

the Gandhinagar pickpocket case?

You take care of it

Get that anti-itch lotion!

Who is he?

Bus Stand Radha!

Heard you are bashing up

everyone without thinking

Doing extortion

And not caring about

my men either!

You think that Bus Stand

is your private property?

No property is anyones

private property


Who do you think of yourself?

I dont think...

I do what needs to be done

You dont event have

a matured moustache

Dont you want to live?

I am not scared of death



Get out!

Take care of Bus Stand...

but as my person

Muscle power is important...

but an iron heart is more important

You have both!

but there is something

more important than that


this is important

this is important

Think about it

Unity...brings happiness

Working for him means

you are his slave!

Nobody opposes us in

our area till today

Once we start listening

we are finished

You are right...

what do you say Yesu

Forget you and me...

what do you say Radha

Living like a small rowdy

in Bus Stand

And living like the king of Vijayawada...

there is a huge difference

We must stop thinking small...

and start thinking big

We will continue

what we are doing

But if we have someone like

Venkata Rathnam we can grow quickly

This is a history written by time..

This is a story beyond time.
