Set in the interior of Telangana, Balagam revolves around the feud between Ailayya (Jayaram) and Narayana (Muralidhar Goud) families. Saailu (Priyadarshi), a youngster, tries his hand at every business but fails to achieve success. Saailu decides to marry so that he can set off the dowry amount against his debt and escape the wrath of moneylenders. Much to Saailu’s shock, his grandfather Komurayya dies, and during the older man’s final rites, Saailu’s marriage gets canceled due to a petty argument. What did Saailu do then? Did he clear his debt? How is Sandhya (Kavya Kalyanram) related to this story? What’s the reason for wrangling between the two families? Watch the film to know the answers.


Balagam was released on 3 March 2023 with both critical and commercial acclaim. Even after the film premiered on Amazon Prime Video and Simply South (outside India) on 24 March 2023 people those who watched the film in OTT started going to theatres to experience the film on big screen.
