Raja Rajeshwari is the daughter of a powerful politician Chamundeshwari (Roja) and Shankar Rao (Naresh). The families agree to the marriage and just when everything seems nice and happy, unexpected circumstances cause a rift between them.

Critical reception[edit]

Oneindia.in stated "Mogudu is a film that shows the values of a joint family, friendship, responsibility, love, and affection etc. Krishna Vamsi succeeds partly in his mission. The trademark Krishna Vamsi style and magic is missing in the film. The movie may appeal family audience. Mogudu is a mixed bag and the fans of Krishna Vamsi will not be fully satisfied with it".[8] Rediff which gave a two stars said "Krishnavamsi's fascination for the family and for tradition is given full play in the film. The decibel levels are high: everyone is either shouting, screaming or hitting everyone else. Dialogues are tacky and it's all just one big high-voltage melodrama. On the whole, a disappointing film.[9] NDTV said "The film is just an above average fare. It is a disappointment for the director's ardent fans who expect much from his films. However praised the lead performances, saying "Gopi Chand looks stylish in his designer wear. He is good in action sequences and shows his talent as a performer. But, it is Rajendra Prasad who steals the show with his stellar performance".[10]

Deepa Garimella of fullhyd.com praised the film's screenplay and the casting but said that the movie is a "disappointing, unfulfilling anecdote of a newly-wed husband and a wife dealing with an unpleasant family fracas", rating it 5 out of 10.[11]
