Naanu Avanalla Avalu Story:
Madesha(Sanchari Vijay) is a boy from Kamalapura born to middle class, simple living and caring parents. As every parent does, Madesha's parents show unconditional love as he is a boy. After a period of time Madesha craves to become a girl. His body language, gestures and feelings change as he meets his friend Govinda.
Madesha's parents and his sister worry about his future as he develops a lifestyle similar to a girl. Worried about his future Madesha moves to city and lives with his sister. The story takes a new turn when Madesha leaves his sister's place to evolve into real 'her' in him!
It needs great strength and bold effort to play the role of a transgender in a movie and Sanchari Vijay has nailed it in each and every frame. Naanu Avanalla Avalu will remain as the benchmark movie of Sanchari Vijay. Along with Vijay, the movie also effectively shows us the changes brought in the perspectives of film making in Kannada film industry.
Other characters Sumithra and Sundar steal the show as best supporting characters.

Vidhya is a theatre artiste and also owns her own NGO, she is well known as 'Smile Vidhya'. Even though Naanu Avanalla Avalu is not penned by BS Lingadevru, the captain of the ship has done a brilliant job by writing the best screenplay, which occupies the viewers.
Cinematographer Ashok V Raman and makeup man Raju and Nagaraju need appreciations for giving their best.
Anoop Seelin's music is yet another major heartrending factor for Naanu Avanalla Avalu which directly portrays the message and connects to the viewers. Along with meaningful composition, Anoop himself has lent his voice for the soothing and heart-touching songs of this well appreciated movie.
Naanu Avanalla Avalu is a must watch. A very rare movie by Kannada director BS Lingadevaru which is emotional, yet educational and enlightens the minds of society about many Madeshas' who have evolved themselves as 'Vidya'.
