sukhadu:khAlu ( 1967 )

SVR plays the blind retired military officer Major Chndrakanth. He has two sons. The older one is a police officer (raamakrishna). The younger one, (haranath) is a playboy college student. He seduces fellow student (vaaNiSree), and then rejects her when she becomes pregnant. She commits suicide. Her brother, chandramOhan - who is devoted to her - confronts haranath and kills him in anger. Running away from the police, he ends up in the blind major's house. The major - not knowing about his sons' death yet - extends his sympathy and protection leading to the climactic conflict among the father, older son (police officer) and the younger son's killer. An emotionally powerful film with strong performances and great story telling by baalachander.
