Vedam (Telugu: వేదం) is a 2010 Telugu drama film directed by Radhakrishna Jagarlamudi, starring Allu Arjun, Manoj Kumar Manchu, Anushka Shetty, Manoj Bajpai Lekha Washington, Siya Gautham, Diksha Seth, Saranya Ponvannan, Brahmanandam, Posani Krishna Murali, Raghu Babu, Ravi Prakash, Satyam Rajesh and others.
The entire movie revolves around 5 principal characters. Cable Raju Allu Arjun is a cable operator from the lower strata of society; Vivek Chakravarthy Manoj Manchu is an upcoming rock star and Saroja Anushka is a sex worker. Manoj Bajpai plays the fourth character of Raheemuddin Qureshi. Nagayya plays the role of a debt-ridden poor weaver settled in the city of Sircilla who is desperate to get his grandson educated.
I would like to declare here that Vedam is not an entertainment oriented film. It is a film on humanity and is narrated in new format. And there are under-current commercial elements. I loved this movie and it doesn’t mean that it will be liked the same way by everybody else.
