“Ugranarasimham” is about how an honest police-office (Krishnam Raju) resorts to frontier justice after being reined by the system while performing his duties.  Dasari Narayana Rao went on a publicity binge to promote his film by giving full page ads in his newly started paper Udayam. He even issued a blow-up (image 2) as part of the publicity blitzkrieg. This is one of the films where Jaggaiah acted as the main-villain.  Srividya, Ambica, Rajani are few actresses whom Dasari repeated in his movies. The former played an insignificant role in the film and so did Jayaprada and Mohan Babu. Read somewhere that the ghastly murder of the journalist shown in the film was inspired by the murder of Journalist Pingali Dasaratha Ram.
