Ashok (అశోక్) is a 2006 Telugu romantic action film produced by Maharishi Cinema, directed and written by Surender Reddy, and starring N. T. Rama Rao Jr., Sameera Reddy, Prakash Raj and Sonu Sood. It is a movie about redemption, in which the title character must make amends to his father after being blamed for the death of his grandmother while meeting a girl who understands him and his burdens; at the same time, he must also battle against a mafia-like organization that hates him.

Ashok was released in Andhra Pradesh on 14 July 2006. It was an average grosser at the box office. The film was later dubbed into Hindi as The Fighterman Ghayal and it was dubbed into Tamil as Ashok.


Ashok (N. T. Rama Rao Jr.) is a mechanic who is thrown out of the house because of his rash actions that have led to the death of his grandmother (Rama Prabha). His father (Prakash Raj) still harbours anger against him despite his subsequent good behaviour that has a positive outcome. Ashok chances to meet an insecure yet talented dancer named Anjali (Sameera Reddy), and falls in love with her. Anjali witnesses a crime involving KK (Sonu Sood), the leader of one of the largest crime syndicates in Andhra Pradesh. KK then tries to ensnare Anjali within his evil plans, while Ashok wages a one-man war against KK's gang.

Ashok's friend Rajiv (Rajiv Kanakala) attempts to rescue Anjali, but KK has him killed, so Ashok avenges his friend's death by killing KK's sidekick. This enrages KK, and his gang captures Ashok's sister, demanding that Ashok hand himself over to them in return for her safety. Ashok's father drags him to KK's manor and orders Ashok to save his sister. Ashok and KK get into a dramatic fight at Ashok's sister's wedding and just when it appears that Ashok will emerge the winner, KK's mother (Vadivukkarasi) tries to shoot Ashok but accidentally kills her own son. She drops the gun and falls down dead, apparently dying of shock.

Ashok's sister gets married and he finally receives his father's forgiveness.
