Odahuttidavalu starring Crazy Star Ravichandran presents him in a role which has not been seen before. Here in this film the crazy star goes emotional with his performance even touching melodramatic dimensions. The film has a strong story line pitched in the rural background written by Cheran. The film is a remake of Tamil Hit Porkaalam. The credit of making Odahuttidavalu as an eminently watchable film goes to Ravichandran himself, who has given a touching performance in a difficult role. Another star of the film is Mallika, the Malayalam actress who has performed the role of a dumb sister to Ravichandran.

Odahuttidavalu is a sentimental film that revolves around the affectionate bond of a good hearted rural artisan Puttaraju and his sister Puttalakshmi. Puttaraju's only ambition is to get his sister married and he is trying hard to do that. Puttaraju's father is a good for nothing drunkard who often creates troubles in the family.

Puttaraju is in love with a neighborhood girl, though his own relative is longing for him. Despite serious efforts of Puttaraju to get his sister married, there will be some or the other problems that prevent the occurrence of marriage. When everything goes well and Puttaraju arranges for some dowry, he finds his own father stealing off the money and swallows it in the form of drinks and debts. Finally, the dumb girl dies and Puttaraju marries a handicapped girl.
