Krishna is a 2008 Telugu romantic action comedy film starring Ravi Teja and Trisha Krishnan. The film is directed by V. V. Vinayak and produced by B. Kasi Vishwanatham. The film released on 11 January 2008, during the Sankranthi festival. It was dubbed into Tamil as Madhura Thmiru. It was remade in Bengali as Awara, starring Jeet and Sayantika Banerjee and in Kannada as Rajani with Upendra and also in Bangladesh as Prem Prem Paglaami(2013) starring Bappy Chowdhury and Achol. In 2013 movie was dubbed in Hindi under the title Krishna: The Power of Earth.[1] This film has brought some fame to the noted Tamil actor Kadhal Dhandapani in Telugu.[2]


The film is about Krishna (Ravi Teja), who was once a software engineer, but quits his job to give it to his friend, and now he is unemployed in the city of Vijayawada. Sandhya (Trisha Krishnan) is a girl from Hyderabad who studies in college and comes to Vijayawada for her vacation to stay with her elder brother Bobby (Brahmanandam) and his wife. Krishna falls in love with Sandhya at first sight and starts chasing her to win her heart and enters the upper portion of their house as tenants with his brother Chandra Shekar (Chandra Mohan) and sister-in-law (Sudha). In this process Krishna will have a clash with local rowdy Lanka Raju (Dhandapani). Mistaking him to be one Tapori, Sandhya hates him first, but later on she realizes his true nature. She returns to Hyderabad and lives with her older brother (Sayaji Shinde), a former builder and now a very powerful rowdy who is very possessive and protective about his sister. Krishna follows Sandhya to Hyderabad and works his way into their house with the help of Bobby, and finally both of them confess their love. There, Krishna knows the flashback of Sandhya and how she is being chased by the notorious and cruel Jagga (Mukul Dev), assisted by his uncle (Jaya Prakash Reddy) for marriage. Krishna fights Jagga, Sandhya's older brother kills Jagga, and Krishna marries Sandhya.


Trisha Krishnan was cast as lead heroine marking her first collaboration with Ravi Teja


This is the first movie which casts actor Ravi Teja with actress Trisha Krishnan. This has been a much anticipated combination by many, including the hero Ravi Teja. Ravi Teja's lack of enthusiasm in recent performances in Khatarnak and Dubai Seenu has spurred director V. V. Vinayak to tell the hero he must be more original, genuine, and enthusiastic about this present venture. Meanwhile, Trisha is busy with two films simultaneously after the success of Aadavari Matalaku Ardhalu Verule. One of these films is Krishna and the other is Bujjigadu, starring Prabhas, filming mainly in her hometown and residence Chennai.


The filming crew filmed in Vijayawada for a couple of weeks, departing on 20 September. There was a craze in Vijayawada to catch glimpses of filming. As per request of Ravi Teja, who hails from Vijayawada, the crew also filmed a song there.
