Gamyam (English: Destination) is a 2008 Telugu road drama film directed by Radhakrishna Jagarlamudi.[1] The film stars Allari Naresh, Sharwanand, and Kamalinee Mukherjee in prominent roles. The critically acclaimed blockbuster film was remade in Tamil as Kadhalna Summa Illai and was released on 14 January 2009; in Bengali as Dui Prithibi and released in 2010; and in Kannada as Savaari.


Janaki (Kamalinee Mukherjee) was an orphan, brought up in an orphanage. She crosses many hardships in her life and manages to finish MBBS degree and becomes a doctor. She understands everyday hardships of the common man and wants to serve people as much as she can. She works in a general hospital and spends much of her earnings and time to charity.

On the other hand, Abhiram/Abhi was the only son and heir of the multi millionaire GK. He grows up amongst all the luxuries and finishes his education in London. He comes back to Hyderabad and spends much of his time in parties and with women. He sees Janaki while she was trying to help a pregnant woman and gets attracted to her. He accept a challenge with his friends that he would woo Janaki and gets her to bed as soon as possible.

He starts to grow relation with Janaki and slowly gets attracted to her character. But her lifestyle was completely different from him and that causes friction between them. On Abhi's birthday party, Janaki comes to know about his bet to bring her to bed and confronts him. He accepts that he involved in a bet but he truly loves her now and wants to spend his life with her. But she angrily leaves the party and he comes to drop her at her hostel. Their quarrel continues and they meet with an accident, where a woman dies and her son gets orphaned. Janaki survives the accident, but Abhi meets with injuries. When he wakes up at hospital, he cannot get in touch with and her friends tell him that she left for her orphanage. Abhi wants to go there to meet her and ask apology.

In the process, he meets a motorbike thief called Gaali Seenu (Allari Naresh), a good hearted thief and he accompanies him in his journey.The journey Abhi takes changes his life drastically: He is exposed to the hard realities of rural life and its simple joys. The landscapes and the people he meets takes him through an emotional journey that alters his perceptions forever. Be it a teacher who supports orphan kids, a disillusioned ex-militant, a prostitute who craves for love, or his companion Gaali Seenu, they all aid in his journey to self-discovery.




Director Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi completed his graduate studies in the United States and returned to India with the sole intention of becoming a filmmaker. Because his parents were not supportive, he started an education consulting firm. Meanwhile, he worked as an assistant to Rasool, who directed Okariki Okaru. After a year and a half of success, Jagarlamudi returned to his dream of making films. When travelling across the state of Maharashtra during a research on a film topic, he connected with his vehicle driver. From here, he obtained the initial inspiration and wrote a story about two people with different outlook towards life travelling together.[1]

Initially, Jagarlamudi wanted to make this story in Hindi. With Aaj Jeeyenge as the title, one of his ideas was to picturise the story starting in Delhi, travelling through Bihar and ending the film's climax in Chhattisgarh. On occasion, he met Nagaraju Gandham, a Nandi Award-winning theatre writer. With Gandham, Jagarlamudi prepared the script. When the daughter of a popular producer of Telugu films approached him if he had any scripts for a small-budget film, he narrated the story which was now based in the state of Andhra Pradesh. To further tighten the loose ends in his script, Jagarlamudi consulted with his family, friends and well-wishers in the film industry such as K. Raghavendra Rao, Gangaraju Gunnam and Sirivennela Sitaramasastri. After undergoing several modifications and changes, the eighth version of the script was decided to be the final one. Without commitment from any producer, he decided to produce the film.[1] Eventually, his father Saibaba Jagarlamudi produced the film.[2]
