Description:

Sitaara is a 1984 Telugu film directed by Vamsy. The film introduced Bhanupriya to the Telugu film industry. The movie was adapted from his own novel Mahal lo Kokila (The Nightingale in the Palace).

Devdas (Subhalekha Sudhakar) is a professional photographer. On a train he meets a melancholy woman (Bhanupriya) who boards the train without a proper ticket. He helps her with the money and tries to strike up a conversation. She only tells him that her name is "Sitaara" and that she has nowhere to go in the big city. The reticent Sitara intrigues Devdas, who takes pity on her position and offers her shelter at his home. Devdas sees the photogenic face of Sitaara and helps her become a model and film star. Eventually, as he manages her dates and schedules, he develops a liking for her. Once when a Sitaara vehemently rejects going to a certain village for shooting, he gets insulted by the producer. An upset Devdas demands an explanation and forces her to reveal her traumatic past.

Sitaara is an innocent sister of a protective and proud zamindar (Sarath Babu). She is kept indoors and restrained by her brother from meeting with the outside world, as is the custom of rich landlords long ago. The zamindar has heavy debts and conceals this fact from the people of the village and hides the misfortune behind the walls of his palace, hoping to win a case in the court that will restore the ancestral wealth and hence the glory of his family.

During Dasara, a group of drama artists come to the village to perform and make their living. Every day, they start their performance first at the zamindar's home per the custom. The zamindar is away and there is no one to watch or reward them. The youngest artist of the troupe (Suman) is irritated by this, but others in the troupe convince him to perform in front of the zamindar's closed doors. One day, Sitaara watches Suman's performance through a broken window and takes a liking for him. He sees her watching him, and the next day performs with even higher vigour, surprising his colleagues.

Eventually Sitaara falls in love with Suman and they go out to the village fair together. When the zamindar comes to know about this love affair, he quietly sends henchmen to kill Suman. Sitaara believes that Suman is killed but, being unable to confront her brother, suffers silently. In the meantime, the zamindar loses his court case. Afraid of losing all the prestige that he has been trying to save, he kills himself in a way to portray a robbery rather than a suicide. Sitaara runs away from the village and meets Devdas in the train.

After her past is revealed, Devdas tries to help her out by going back to the village and locating Suman. He learns that Suman was not killed when the zamindar sent his men to beat him to death. He tries to track him and leaves Sitaara alone in the city for a while. Meanwhile, Sitaara attempts suicide after coming to know that Devdas wanted to marry her, through the news in a film tabloid. Suman comes to know that Sitaara is searching for him and comes to the city. Devdas manages to unite them in the end.
