A sleeper hit, Mogalturu is the Telugu dubbed version of the Tamil film, Nedunalvaadai. Debutant director Selvakannan took inspiration from a poem written by Nakkeerar in Sangam literature. The film talks about the pain of separation, not only between a man and a woman but also a grandfather and his grandson. A farmer Chellaiah (Poo Ramu) loves him family intensely. He raises a daughter who elopes with her lover, upsetting Chellaiah. However, years after eloping and raising kids of her own (daughter and son, just like Chellaiah), she returns to her home. Chellaiah explains his grandson Elango (Elvis Alexander) about falling in love in high school and his responsibility towards the family. How Elango strikes the perfect balance between both, makes up the rest of the story.
