Rama Krishna (Kalyan Ram Nandamuri) is an aspiring football player who dreams of playing for the national team one day. He lives in a joint family and shares a strong bond with his family, especially his younger sister, Haritha (Saranya Mohan). Haritha has the knack of getting into trouble all the time but her brother is there to protect and save her whenever she gets into trouble. She also makes the wrong choice in selecting her life partner (Shyam) who is factionist Muthyam’s (Kota Srinivasa Rao) son and marries Haritha to take revenge. Reason? Haritha had once slapped him when he had tried to woo her and he in turn marries her to get back at her.
Rama Krishna discovers this only when Haritha disappears and he starts a search for her only to find her in deep trouble in her in-laws place in Rayalseema. The remaining part of the story deals with how Rama Krishna sacrifices his dream of playing for the national team to help save his sister from the trouble she is going through and set everything right.
First half of the movie is adequate. The movie gets interesting from the kidnap episode. Second half is racy with lots of action episodes. The climax fight is too massy. The plus points of the movie are brand-new Kalyan Ram and technical values (dialogues, camera and fights). This movie is mainly aimed at female crowds (sentiment factor) and masses (action episodes and dialogues). Kathi is an adequate movie and the success will depend on how ladies and masses patronize it.
