Jayabheri (Telugu: జయభేరి;) Telugu devotional & biographical film based on life of Karnataka poet Kaasinath, produced by Vasireddy Narayana Rao on Sarada Productions banner and directed by P. Pullaiah. Starring Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Anjali Devi in lead roles and music composed by Pendyala Nageswara Rao. The film is remake of Marathi film Lokshahir Ram Joshi (1947) & in Hindi as Matwala Shayar Ram Joshi. The film simultaneously released in Tamil as Kalaivaanan.


The story is set around 1600-1700 during the Vijayanagara empire. Kasinatha Sastri (ANR) belongs to a high caste Brahmin family. He lives with his brother and sister-in-law, who is also his closest friend. He treats her like a mother. Manjulavani (Anjali Devi) is part of a troupe that performs plays for money. Being of different caste, the lovers find it difficult to be together with outside prejudices creeping in. The rest of the story is about how ANR marries Anjali, going against the norms and makes people realize that all humans are the same.
