The success team of Samarasimha Reddy, Balakrishna and B Gopal, is back again
with a similar theme - Rayalaseema faction feuds - in Narasimhanaidu. With a tight

The story goes like this: Balakrishna opens a dance school in one of those hill stations. Preeti Jhangiani, who lives with her uncle Jayaprakash Reddy, comes to learn dance from Balakrishna and, yes, falls in love with him. But the latter does not show even an iota of interest. Meanwhile, Preeti's marriage is fixed with her cousin much against her wishes, despite her making it known to her father Mukesh Rishi that she is in love with Balakrishna.
Sensing that he might be drawn into violence, Balakrishna closes the school and leaves the place. But he is closely followed by Preeti who gets on to the same train.

Losing his wife Simran in the process, he renounces violence and leaves the place to honor his wife's last wish. And Mukesh Rishi, on coming to know that his daughter's lover and his bete noir are the same, crosses swords with Balakrishna in a fresh bout of violence.

Jhangiani, Simran and Asha Saini provide the glamour element to this action-packed
