Plot[edit]

The story is about the critical role of Timmarusu (Gummadi) played during the reign of Sri Krishnadevaraya (NTR). The story begins with the crowning ceremony of Sri Krishnadevaraya. Before the function, he participates in the dance and music function of Chinna Devi (Vijayalaxmi). They get married and she becomes his first queen. After the coronation, Timmarusu arranges the marriage with Tirumala Devi (S. Varalaxmi), daughter of Srirangapatnam kingdom. The Vijayanagara empire expands in size due to the war tactics of Pemmasani Ramalinga Nayaka (Mikkilineni). Timmarusu slaps him on the cheek to remind him about the kickbacks while seating on the crown. He plans to attack Gajapathis of Kalinga kingdom alone. Knowing about this, Timmarusu reaches Kalinga and protects him. Pratap Rudra Gajapathi (Mukkamala) wanted to kill him with the help of his son Veerabhadra Gajapathi (Prabhakar Reddy). However, his daughter Annapurna Devi (Devika) is openly opposed to the plan since she in love with Krishnadevaraya. In a political dialogue, Prataparudra agrees to marry his daughter to Krishnadevaraya. Prataparudra tries to assassinate Krishnadevaraya immediately after the marriage. Krishandevaraya escapes with the help of Timmarusu. Krishnadevaraya, Timmarusu, and Annapurna Devi along with Hamvira (Lingamurthy) reach Hampi. Annapurna gives birth to Tirumala Raya. Hamvira creates differences between Krishnadevaraya and Timmarusu. He assassinates Tirumala Raya and frames Timmarusu and convinces Krishnadevaraya that Timmarusu is the real culprit. The court, on the instructions from Krishnadevaraya, orders the plucking of Timarusu's eyes and imprisoning him. Before Rayalu knows the fact, the punishment is implemented. However, Timmarusu pardons him and their relationship continues.
