Jayamma Panchayathi is produced by Balaga Prakash under Vennela Creations. The director Vijay Kumar Kalivarapu had shot to fame earlier with a series of award-winning short films, which convinced the makers to invest in his story.
The story of Jayamma Panchayathi revolves a series of incidents that the director witnessed during his formative years in Srikakulam. The film is about a middle-aged woman Jayamma, who fights out the village headmen in the village to fund the treatment of her husband, suffering from a heart ailment. How does she confront the battles in her life and village?

Several big names including Ram Charan, Pawan Kalyan, SS Rajamouli, Nagarjuna, Nani and others came forward to promote its theatrical release.
