Meghasandesam is the story of a common man who has an innate urge for poetry. He leads a simple life, marrying a common villager, with children and respected in society. His life is normal until he finds a lady who is a Devadasi (a village dancer), and she inspires his creativity. As a truly inspired poet, he writes excellent poetry. But the other villagers mistake him as being attracted to the dancer.

Consequently after some family drama, his wife leaves him, to let her husband fulfill his poetic thirst. Against social norms, and against customs, and probably as a triumph of love and art, he settles down with the dancer.




The movie was a musical hit, and featured Ashtapadi hymns from Jayadeva.

All music composed by Ramesh Naidu.
