Andarivaadu (Man of the Masses) is a 2005 Tollywood action comedy-drama film directed by Srinu Vytla. The film stars Chiranjeevi, Rimi Sen, Tabu and Prakash Raj. It has been dubbed in Hindi as Ek Aur Himmathwala.
Govinda Rajulu (Chiranjeevi) is a mesthri (construction worker) who drinks a lot and lives a care-free life. His son Siddartha (also Chiranjeevi), on the other hand, is a popular TV show host and is a more disciplined man — the opposite of his dad. The son gets his father married to Shanti (Tabu) to sober him.
Siddartha is in love with Shwetha (Rimi Sen), who is the daughter of a big-time contractor, Veerendra (Prakash Raj). Veerendra happens to be a childhood friend of Govinda, but currently dislikes him due to his behaviours and social class. Thus, he agrees to get his daughter married to Siddu, but tells Govinda that in order for the marriage to take place, he must distance himself from Siddu, as Veerendra does not like the father's influence on the son. Govinda being the loving and caring father he is, dcides to fake kicking his son out of the house, so that he can marry Swetha.
During the time of the engagement though, Siddu breaks it in front of everyone, publicly revealing the condition Veerendra has given. It is revealed that Govinda's friend had told Siddu about the condition and it's the sole reason Siddu was kicked out of the house. Siddu returns to his father and a vengeful Swetha decides to separate the family and have Siddu for herself. She begs Govinda to forgive her and take her as his daughter-in-law, as she had not known about her father's condition. Govinda says if Siddu wants her then he is willing to have her in the house, because he holds no grudge and wants his son to be happy. Siddu decides that as long as his father is happy, he is too, and says okay to marrying Swetha. She moves into the house and starts making sketches to create differences between the father and son, with the help of her cousin-brother, Sathi Babu (Sunil), but fails miserably. The rest of the film is about if she succeeds or not.
Meanwhile, Govinda has differences with a big-time rowdy and contractor, Satti Pehelwan (Pradeep Rawat).
