Manchi Manasulu (English: Good Hearts) is a 1962 Telugu drama film produced by C. Sundaram under the Babu Movies banner and directed by Adurthi Subba Rao. It stars Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Savitri in the lead roles and music composed K. V. Mahadevan. The film was a remake of the Tamil film Kumudham (1961).


Venu (Akkineni Nageshwara Rao) is a very poor student and seeks to come out of the hostel by virtue of being unable to bear its expenses. Thus, he shifts to a lawyer Anand Rao's (S. V. Rangarao) summer-house, who gives it to him free of cost. Venu has a brother who is a blacksmith and funds Venu's studies and his daughter's needs in their village. Anand Rao's wife (Suryakantam) doesn't agree to give their summer-house to a bachelor, so Anand Rao insists that he is married. The lawyer has a daughter Shanthi (Savitri) who falls in love with Venu. Her parents agree for their marriage after discussions. Venu completes his B.A. degree and goes to his village. His brother dies of ill-health and asks him to take care of his daughter Jaya. Jaya loves a man named Kumar (Nagabhushanam), who is very deceptive, and has a blind sister Radha (Janaki). When Venu asks Kumars' parents to get Jaya married to their son, they agree on one condition that Venu should marry their daughter. So, Venu and Shanthi sacrifice their love. Venu is guilty of dumping Shanti so he doesn't show affection to his wife. One day Shanthi comes and mitigates the situation. Radha's brother and his wife create a nuisance. Radha becomes pregnant. To keep her away from all these problems, he takes his wife to Hampi in Vijayanagar on Shanthi's advice. There, Kumar cheats a lady and kills her on a mountain. Hearing her screaming, Venu arrives there and sees the culprit and gets caught by police to save Kumar's life for the sake of his brother's daughter. Shanthi who is now a lawyer, takes up his case and proves that he is innocent in the court and unveils the culprit with the help of strong evidence brought by Jaya, who becomes remorseful and confesses. The story ends with Venu and his family leading a happy life.
