An analysis of the narrative

Scene: 1970s Andhra Pradesh's Stuartpuram:
The video captures the spirit of the 1970s as it takes place amid Stuartpuram's dusty surroundings.

Nageswara Rao (Ravi Teja), the protagonist, is a young man forced into a life of petty stealing by the harsh realities of persecution and poverty.

Nageswara Rao sees firsthand the institutionalised cruelty meted out to the peasants, including the mistreatment of his own father. He makes a commitment to oppose the oppressors out of a passion for justice.

Moment of change:

An important incident that probably involves increased violence or injustice serves as the impetus for Nageswara Rao's change. He makes the decision to become a dacoit in order to support the downtrodden.

Modus Operandi: Tiger's Ascent:

In his thefts, Nageswara Rao, now known as Tiger, uses boldness and ingenuity, outwitting the police with his creative plots and disguises. His fierceness and cunning make him known as "Tiger."

Ambiguity in morality:

Nageswara Rao is revered as a hero among the downtrodden, yet his tactics are unlawful and harsh. The movie contextualises and navigates the morally dubious aspects of his acts.
Romance - Padma (Gayatri Bharadwaj): Nageswara Rao's character is given complexity by a possible romantic subplot involving Padma, which entwines personal ties with his goals.

Playing the Cat and Mouse Game: CI Anupam Kher's character, Mouli, is a police officer who is determined to follow Nageswara Rao no matter what. Their disagreement turns into an exciting game of cat and mouse that is full of nail-biting chases and near misses.

Climax and Resolution: The movie builds to a climactic showdown between CI Mouli and Nageswara Rao. In addition to resolving their personal dispute, the finale touches on more general issues of justice and revolt.
