The story is set in Ancient Kakateya Dynasty, The Kingdom ruled by Raja Ganapathy (Krishnam Raju) who is constantly troubled by his neighboring kingdoms and also by his kings of state who wants his place as king as he is left without a male successor .

When Rudramadevi comes to age the King decides to reveal the secret but Rudhramadevi tells her father that she will reveal herself only once the kingdom his secure and decides to continue to adorn the male form as Rudra Devudu. How Rudhramadevi saves her kingdom from its enemies and will she reveal herself forms the rest of the story.
Rudhramadevi is full of notable individual performances by the lead characters. Even though the story works, it lacks creative writing and a strong screenplay. Too many characters with difficult names fails to register in the audience mind. VFX is a good attempt but the fails to impress, the war sequences makes us remember the old Mahabharat TV show of the late 80’s. The only technical team which impresses was the set design by the veteran Thota Tharani . Songs to fails to impress as the movie itself fails elevate the drama . Allu Arjun’s character is very brief and doesn’t carry along, it might not impress his fans. Rana too has very little screen time. 3D doesn’t impress and is disturbing in certain scenes, the convergence in certain compositions makes your eyes pain . On the whole Rudhramadevi doesn’t impress though full of huge names . i give it 4/10
