"Kaala Dharmam" is a poignant Telugu drama that delves deep into the intricacies of life, loss, and the fragile balance of family bonds. In the heart of adversity, a middle-class family grapples with the suffocating weight of debt. The patriarch, Bhanu, sacrifices tirelessly within the confines of a school to keep their world from crumbling.

But destiny plays a fickle hand. A devastating train accident steals Bhanu away, leaving behind only unanswered questions as the train vanishes into a river's depths. The family's despair turns into a glimmer of hope as they find solace in the compassion of the government, the unwavering support of family and friends, and the memory of the man they lost.

Just as they begin to rebuild their lives upon the foundation of Bhanu's supposed sacrifice, an astonishing twist unravels their newfound stability. Bhanu returns, defying death itself. His son, torn between joy and resentment, grapples with the revelation that their rebuilt life now stands threatened. Can the family find a way to reconcile their past with their present, or will Bhanu's return forever alter the course of their lives?

"Pelli Sandadi" is a laugh-a-minute comedy play that takes the phrase 'wedding bells' to a whole new level of hilarity! Meet Ramakrishna, the master of fibs, who spins a tale about being married to appease his suspicious boss. But when the boss decides he's due for a surprise lunch at the 'happy couple's' place, chaos erupts!

Cue Ramakrishna's trusty sidekick, Ranga, who jumps into action with all the subtlety of a bull in a china shop. And just when you think things can't get crazier, enter Natraj, the over-enthusiastic theater actor, ready to steal the spotlight at any moment!

With Ramakrishna's sisters thrown into the mix, this comedy of errors is a recipe for non-stop laughter. Will Ramakrishna, the accidental bridegroom, pull off the performance of a lifetime? Or will his boss discover the truth and crash this matrimonial masquerade?
