Krishna is a 2010 Malayalam film written and directed by Bhaskar. Allu Arjun, Sheela and Prakash Raj played the lead roles while Poonam Bajwa and Jayasudha made crucial cameo appearances. Dil Raju produced the film on Sri Venkateswara Creations whilst Mani Sharma scored the film soundtrack and background score. Vijay C Chakravarthy and Marthand K. Venkatesh handled the cinematography & editing of the film respectively. This film's story made news for its similarity with the elopement drama of Arjun's cousin Srija, the daughter of actor Chiranjeevi with her then-boyfriend Sirish Bharadwaj though none of the mainstream media spoke about the co-incidence.
This film revolves around a person named Neelakanta and his love for his two daughters Subbalakshmi and Meenakshi. Neelakanta is a powerful man in his village who doesn't believe in love marriages. Subbalakshmi elopes with a guy called Errababu on the night of her arranged marriage. Neelakanta's men kidnap all the friends of Errababu and Krishna, a happy go lucky guy from Hyderabad, is one among them. Krishna falls in love with Meenakshi at first sight who happens to be the younger daughter of Neelakanta which he knows later. The rest of the story is all about whether Krishna elopes with Meenakshi or convinces Neelakanta to marry her on the night of her marriage.
