Bunny is an Indian Telugu-language action-masala film that was released in the year 2005. This is Allu Arjun's third movie, which proved to be his third successive box office hit after Gangotri and Arya. This film stars Allu Arjun in the lead role and Prakash Raj and Gowri Munjal in other roles. This was dubbed into Oriya as Dharmayuddha, into Hindi as Bunny The Super Hero and into Malayalam with the same title. The film was remade in Bengali as Challenge by Raj Chakraborty starring Dev & Subhashree Ganguly. Allu Arjun got his nickname "Bunny" famous after the film release.He was called as "Bunny" in home from his childhood.
Somaraju (Prakash Raj) is a leading business man in Visakhapatnam. Mysamma (Mukesh Rishi) is a close member of Somaraju, who handles the deals of Somaraju in Hyderabad. Mahalaxmi (Gowri Munjal) is the daughter of Somaraju. Somaraju dearly loves his daughter. Bunny (Allu Arjun) joins the same college as Mahalaxmi. He impresses Mahalaxmi on the first day itself. Slowly, she falls in love with him. Somaraju, though reluctant initially, agrees to the marriage. Now Bunny has a condition that Somaraju should give his entire property to Bunny as dowry. The rest of the story explains why Bunny asks for Somaraju's property.
Bunny's real father is Mahalaxmi's mom's brother. He was a great man with lots of land and property, as well as lots of regard from the government and other people. When Mahalaxmi is born, Mahalxmi's mom asks him to perform the baby naming ceremony and such. On his way there, Somaraju attacks him with the help of a bunch of rowdies. They pretty much kill him and leave him to die in the forest. However, he manages to live and perform Mahalaxmi's ceremony, but he dies minutes after, without telling anyone what happened.
Bunny comes to know of this when his so-called father explains to him that he is really his godfather and not his father. While trying to save him, his godfather and godmother give up their own son to keep him alive. To regain his rightful property, Bunny fights Somaraju and he wins his girl.
