It is produced by Balaga Prakash under Vennela Creations. The drama hits theatres across the globe on May 6.
The film revolves around a headstrong village woman, Jayamma, whose world revolves around her family.

Anush Kumar is the cinematographer of Jayamma Panchayathi, while Ravi Teja Girijala is the editor. The technical team also comprises art director Dhanu Andhluri and costume designer Hari Priya.
