What's the story of Itlu Maredumilli Prajaneekam?
The story revolves around a government officer who visits a remote village Maredumilli as part of election duty. The results of the elections in Maredumilli are awaited with immense enthusiasm by residents, politicians in Andhra Pradesh. However, when the officer reaches Maredumilli, he realises the road ahead is a bumpy one, with the villagers facing several issues with political leaders and don't even enjoy the basic rights of citizens across the country.
The honest government officer takes the concerns of the people within Maredumilli personally and is committed to finding a solution, even if he goes against the system. The natives see a ray of hope within the officer and realise his true intent despite the initial friction. What are the various problems that the officer encounters as he performs his duty? Can Maredumilli dream of a rosy future? This forms the crux of Itlu Maredumilli Prajaneekam.
What's special about Itlu Maredumilli Prajaneekam?

There's a trust factor that comes with a resurgent Allari Naresh, who's more determined than ever to be a part of quality cinema.
