Kanna Thalli is a classic Telugu drama movie that hit the screens in the year 1953. The movie stars Varalakshmi G., Akkineni Nageshwara Rao and Nageswara Rao R. in the lead roles. The movie set in a village where the landlord, zamindar, rules with an iron fist. He is a cruel and cunning man who exploits the villagers, especially the poor farmers who work on his land. The zamindar loves his daughter, Thalli, more than anything else in this world. He always keeps her in his care and nourishes her with everything he has.

Thalli has grown up in luxury, without knowing the harsh reality of the world outside her palace. She is naive and innocent, and her father has always kept her away from the harsh realities of the world outside. However, one day, someone manages to enter the palace and reveal the truth to Thalli. This event opens her eyes to the harsh reality of the world outside.

As Thalli learns the truth about the plight of the villagers, she becomes determined to help them. She decides to take on the responsibilities of their welfare and lead them towards a better life. Thalli's father doesn't like this idea and sees Thalli's newfound interest in helping the people as a threat to his authority. He tries to put an end to her aspirations and keep her isolated from reality.

Thalli's determination to help the villagers is only growing stronger, and at the same time, a young man named Ramesh (ANR) enters her life. He is the son of the zamindar's trusted servant and becomes Thalli's confidant. He helps her in her pursuit of empowering the villagers and bringing them out of poverty.

As Thalli's efforts begin to bear fruit, the zamindar sees her as a liability and a threat to his position. He uses all his power to deter her and Ramesh from helping the poor.

The movie presents a timeless theme of fighting for the rights of the poor and giving them a voice.
