Gorintaku is a Telugu drama film released in 1979, directed by Dasari Narayana Rao and produced by Madala Ranga Rao. It stars Sobhan Babu, Ramana Murthi J.V., and Devadas Kanakala in lead roles. The story revolves around the lives of two brothers, Sambayya (Sobhan Babu) and Ramayya (Ramana Murthy J.V.), and their families. Sambayya is a hardworking farmer who lives with his wife and two children, while Ramayya is a rich businessman who lives in the city with his wife and daughter.

Despite being polar opposites in their lifestyles, the brothers share a deep bond and often rely on each other for support. However, their relationship is put to the test when Sambayya faces financial troubles and is forced to turn to Ramayya for help. Ramayya agrees to lend his brother the money but with a catch – Sambayya must sign over the deed of his land as collateral.

As time passes, Sambayya is unable to repay the debt, and Ramayya uses this as an opportunity to take over his brother’s land. The situation spirals out of control, and the brothers find themselves at odds with each other, leading to a dramatic turn of events.

The film explores themes of family, loyalty, and betrayal, and the performances of the lead actors bring the emotional depth of the story to life. Sobhan Babu delivers a powerful performance as the dedicated and honest Sambayya, and Ramana Murthy J.V. is convincing as the cunning and manipulative Ramayya.

The film also features strong supporting performances from Devadas Kanakala as Sambayya’s friend and ally, and Savitri as Ramayya’s wife, who provides a nuanced portrayal of a woman caught between her loyalty to her husband and her concern for her brother-in-law.

The music by Chellapilla Satyam is an added highlight of the film, with several memorable songs including the popular “Raalipoye Puvva Neeku Ragaala Pallakilo”, which has become a classic.

Overall, Gorintaku is a well-crafted drama that resonates with audiences even today. The film’s exploration of the complex dynamics of family relationships and its portrayal of the struggle between traditional values and modernization make it a timeless classic of Telugu cinema.
