Kanna Koduku (

  1. REDIRECT Template:Translation sidebar) is a 1973 Telugu-language drama film, produced by G. Radhakrishna Murthy and A. Ramachandra Rao under the Viswa Bharathi Productions banner[2] and directed by V. Madhusudhan Rao.[3] It stars Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Lakshmi, Krishnam Raju[4] and music composed by T. Chalapathi Rao.[5]


Raja Rao (Gummadi) a millionaire, is a strong believer of astrology, who thinks his elder son Krishna is not responsible due to his horoscope. Raja Rao's sister Papayamma (Suryakantham) exaggerates the situation to make her son Shankar as heir. So, Raja Rao instructs his driver Chinnaiah (Bhanu Prakash) to eliminate him and frames as if he is dead. But kind-hearted Chinnaiah safeguards Krishna and rears him. After a few years, Raja Rao is blessed with another child Gopi whom he feels like a lucky charm. Meanwhile, Chinnaiah is sentenced to the crime when alone Krishna reaches the city. There, unknowingly, he saves his brother Gopi when his mother Janakamma (Anjali Devi) gets somewhat affectionate and gives him shelter. Years roll by, Krishna (Akkineni Nageswara Rao) grows up as a servant in his own house, though Janakamma recognizes Krishna as her own she remains silent as she is afraid of her husband. Raja Rao's pampering turns Gopi (Krishnam Raju) into a spoiled brat. Now Papayamma plans to make her daughter Rani's (Jaya Kousalya) marriage with Gopi, but Shankar (Raja Babu) good-natured, forbids her intentions. Meanwhile, Raja Rao's business partner Buchi Raju (Dhulipala) fixes his daughter Bharati's (Lakshmi) alliance with Gopi when Krishna and Bharati fall in love. Adding on to it, Raja Rao removes Buchi Raju as his partner as, at present, his horoscope is bad. Keeping the grudge in mind, Buchi Raju exploits Gopi to grab the property. At the same time, Krishna has to leave the house for the misdeed committed by Gopi when Bharati also accompanies him. Furious Buchi Raju plots and provokes Gopi against Raja Rao, who threatens his parents and takes the authority over the property. Through Shankar, Krishna learns the rift and rushes for their rescue. Simultaneously, Chinnaiah reveals the birth secret of Krishna to Raja Rao. On the other side, Gopi double-crosses Papayamma by making Rani pregnant when she too admits her sin. In the meantime, the quarrel erupts between the brothers in which Raja Rao is wounded while guarding Krishna against harm. At last, the entire truth comes forward and Gopi is reformed. Finally, the movie ends on a happy note with the marriage of Krishna and Bharati.
