Ladies Tailor is a 1986 Indian Telugu-language comedy film, produced by K. Sarada Devi under the Sri Sravanthi Movies banner, presented by Sravanthi Ravi Kishore and written and directed by Vamsy. It stars Rajendra Prasad and Archana, with music composed by Ilaiyaraaja.

The film was dubbed into Tamil under the same name. The movie was remade in 2006 with the same name as original, starring Rajpal Yadav and Kim Sharma.


The film begins in a village where a proficient ladies' tailor, Sundaram, is a slacker & strong proponent of a fluke that molds him into affluent. He turns a deaf ear to his disciple Sitaramudu, and friend, Battala Satyam, a cloth vendor, urging him to work. Once, a Koyadora prophecies that Sundaram has kingship by knitting a lady luck possessing a mole on her right thigh. He shares it with his mates, but they are terrified of the chieftain Venkata Ratnam, who will abide by any roguery on women. He is under penalty, so they decide to prevail before his arrival by watching out for his confidant, Seenu. Sundaram starts his task with big business by stitching a blouse for unstable Venkataratnam's sibling Sundari, who roams across. He alleges three girls, Nagamani, Neelaveni, & Daiya, flirting with them and oaths to espouse. Constantly, he makes trials to extract the real one when Seenu senses from his acts. Due to lack of time, Sundaram wittily chases the puzzle and collapses absence at the trio. Thus, he plans to flee but fortuitously spots the mole on a newly deployed school teacher, Sujatha.

Meanwhile, Venkata Ratnam acquits Sundaram's buddies to handle Seenu with the bribe. Sundaram reboots his play with Sujatha but truly loves her, and she, too, reciprocates. However, the trio clusters him by fixing their alliance. Parallelly, Sujatha is forwarding to training, so he affirms to walk out with her. Here, as a flabbergast, Sundari conceives when everyone accuses Sundaram, and villagers & trio surround him. On the verge of Venkata Ratnam slaying him, Sujatha breaks the actual killer as Sitaramudu. Then, Venkata Ratnam turns his rage, which Sujatha subdues. She also detests Sundaram's idiocy for his betrayal of women. Sundaram dies out of remorse, pleads pardon, and opts to quit. At last, Sujatha bars him, and they wedlock. Finally, the movie ends comically, with Sundaram discerning the girl with a mole as Sundari.




Sravanthi Ravi Kishore along with his friends Thammudu Satyam and Vemuri Satyanarayana together formed a production company Sravanthi Film Arts. Ladies Tailor became company's first project.[1]
