Sri Ramadasu (Telugu: శ్రీ రామదాసు) is an epic Telugu film which released on March 30, 2006 and was directed by K. Raghavendra Rao. The film stars Akkineni Nagarjuna in the lead role and Sneha, Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Nassar and Nagendra Babu in the supporting roles. Music was composed by M. M. Keeravani, who composed 19 songs for the film. Cinematography and editing was handled by S. Gopal Reddy and Sreekar Prasad respectively. Along with being critically acclaimed, the film became a super hit at box office.


The film starts with the penance of Bhadra (Sarath Babu) who turns out to be a hill with the blessings of Lord Rama. In later centuries, Dammakka, the tribal lady and worshipper of Lord Rama unearths and looks after the idols of Rama on the hill and awaits someone who can construct a temple there. On the other hand, Gopanna (Nagarjuna) and his niece Kamala (Sneha) snuggle in love and get into wedlock after a small turmoil with their parents. After the marriage, Tanisha, the emperor of Golconda, with the recommendation of Akkanna and Madanna (the uncles of Gopanna), appoints Gopanna as Tehsildar of Husnabad. Thus, a Muslim Tehsildar (Jay Prakash Reddy) who had been the Tehsildar to the place gets dethroned for the sake of Gopanna. That ignites disgust among a few groups and attempts murder on Gopanna. However, Dammakka saves him when he lies unconscious on the bank of Godavari. She shows him the place of Bhadragiri and Gopanna turns an ardent devotee of Rama. After a series of incidents, he decides to construct the Rama Mandir on the hill. He collects funds from people with the help of Kabirdas, his guru, and completes the construction of temple. Lord Rama, Lakshmana, Seetha and Anjaneya live in invisible forms in the place during the construction of temple. They keep on guarding Gopanna until he accomplishes his mission. Thus with immense bhakthi on Lord Rama, Gopanna turns Ramadasu.

The enemy groups of Ramadasu pass on negative message to Tanisha about him, stating that he constructed temple with the money of people without taking the king's permission. Exasperated Tanisha imprisons Ramadasu. After many ordeals faced by Ramadasu in prison, Lord Rama and Lakshmana appear to Tanisha in dream and pays required amount to him. Then Tanisha, releases Ramadasu from prison and discovers that the two persons who cleared the debt were Lord Rama and Lakshmana.
