Pasivadi Pranam (Telugu: పసివాడి ప్రాణం) is a 1987 Telugu language film. This film stars Chiranjeevi, Vijayashanti and Raghuvaran. This film was produced by Chiranjeevi's brother-in-law Allu Aravind and directed by A. Kodandarami Reddy. The film is a remake of Poovinnu Puthiya Poonthennal, a Malayalam movie starring Mammootty. The film was recorded as an Industry Hit at the box office.[1]


Madhu (Chiranjeevi) is a painter who has become a drunkard since his wife was killed immediately after their marriage in an accident. He leads a careless life until a kid (Baby Sujitha) who is deaf and vocally challenged (dumb), enters his life. He names him Raja and takes care of him however, he doesn't stop drinking. It is revealed that Raja's parents were murdered by Venu (Raghuvaran) and his assistant and Raja was the witness to the murder, and they are trying to get rid of him. Geeta (Vijayashanti) meets the kid in a shopping place and mistakes him to be Madhu's son and fights with them when the kid accidentally breaks her just-bought gift and later realises her mistake and comes to Madhu's house to apologise. She befriends the kid and gradually falls for Madhu. Later she comes to know that the kid is none other than her sister's (Rajyalakshmi) son and she was murdered. Venu and his assistant keep trying to kill the kid and they are almost successful when Madhu is out drunk one night, but he saves him in the last minute. This changes him and he gives up drinking. Madhu is accused of murder and kidnapping, and is arrested by Inspector (Prabhakar). Geeta and her father (Madhu) is not the actual killer, but the police can't release him as another case was filed on him. The rest of the story is how the villains are slain and Madhu and Geetha marry and adopt the kid.
