Aata (translation: Game) is a 2007 Telugu film starring Siddharth Narayan and Ileana D'Cruz in the lead roles. M. S. Raju produced this film while V. N. Aditya directed the project. This film was released on May 9, 2007. The film was remade in Bengali as Kellafate. [1]


Srikrishna (Siddharth) grows up watching films playing in the theatre in which his father works as a movie-projectionist in a village. He yearns to become a famous hero like the films he has watched all his life. Satya (Ileana) is harassed by Vicky (Munna) - son of a politician (Jaya Prakash Reddy)- who wants to marry her. Satya escapes from home and Srikrishna falls in love with her the first time he meets her. As the goons and police chase Satya, Srikrishna protects her and drops her in the house of the politician just as Satya is falling in love with him. He wins Vicky’s confidence. Then, he plays a one sided game with him. At the end, the police that were working with Vicky turn against him and arrest Vicky and his parents. Satya and Srikrishna get married.



The music and soundtrack of the movie was composed by Devi Sri Prasad. And the lyrics were written by Sirivennela Sitaramasastri, Chandrabose.


Some critics noted that the plot closely follows the plot of the Pawan Kalyan's film Gudumba Shankar. Aata did very well commercially but content was pretty average.

The movie was dubbed into Tamil as Gillida, and in Hindi as Aaj Ka Great Gambler, and in Oriya as Hero.
