After the success of Sardar Paparayudu, Kranthi Kumar decided to produce a film with Chiranjeevi. Doraiswamy Raju recommended the name of A. Kodandarami Reddy to KRanthikumar. After being unsatisfied with the scripts, Kranthi decided to adapt the novel Kotta Malupu into a feature film. Team decided to keep the film's title as Nyayam Kavali after considering titles like Aadapilla and Anyayam.[3]

Nyayam Kavali was remade in four other languages and created history there in other languages too. K. Balaji brought Tamil rights and L.V. Prasad brought Hindi rights. Though they offered Kondadarami Reddy to direct the Tamil version, he refused as he was not well versed with the language. Tamil version was directed by K. Vijayan while Director K. Bhagyaraja did a small role as himself (like Dasari Narayana Rao in Telugu Version), titled Vidhi which was also a huge hit, Poornima Jayaraman did the role of Radhika while Sujatha did the role of Sharada, Jaishankar did the role of Jagayya while Mohan did the role of Chiranjeevi, Producer Balaji (father-in-law of Malayalam star Mohanlal ) appeared in the role of judge. The film was a blockbuster and ran for 500 days in some centers.[3]

The film was remade in Hindi as Mujhe Insaaf Chahiye with Mithun Chakraborty and Rekha and in Kannada as Kerala Hennu.[3] The film was also remade in Malayalam as Thaalam Thettiya Tharattu (1983).[4]
