Matru Devo Bhava is a 1993 Telugu drama film written and directed by K. Ajayakumar.[1][2]

The film won the National Film Award for Best Lyrics by Veturi Sundararama Murthy for the song "Raalipoye Puvva" and Filmfare Best Film Award (Telugu),[3]

Production[edit]

The film is a remake of the Malayalam hit film Akashadoothu (1993) by Sibi Malayil.[4] K.S. Rama Rao saw the film and bought the remake rights for Telugu. Rama Rao brought Madhavi in to reprise her role from Akshadhoodu since she was also a familiar face to Telugu audience. Major portions of the Telugu remake were shot in the same locations as the original film.

In 2008 the movie was remade in Hindi as Tulsi by the same producer-director duo, but with Manisha Koirala and Irrfan Khan in the lead roles.

Plot[edit]

Satyam (Nassar) is a driver and his wife Sarada (Madhavi) is a music teacher. They were both orphans brought up in the Seva Ashram (run by Charuhasan). Sarada and Satyam have four kids. Satyam, though good at heart, is addicted to liquor. Apparao (Tanikella Bharani), a toddy milk vendor, has an eye on Sarada. When Satyam discovers Apparao making advances on Sarada, he assaults him in front of everyone. Avenging the assault, Apparao kills Satyam. Sarada, who is diagnosed with cancer, wants her children to be brought up in a family atmosphere rather than in the Ashram and the children are adopted by different families.
