Janda Pai Kapiraju (English: Lord Hanuman on the Flag) is a 2015 Indian Telugu political action film written and directed by Samuthirakani featuring Nani and Amala Paul in the lead roles. The film's soundtrack and background score were composed by G. V. Prakash Kumar. This film was simultaneously made in Tamil as Nimirndhu Nil with Jayam Ravi and also dubbed in Hindi with same title. While the Tamil version with Jayam Ravi released in 2014 and went on to become a BlockBuster, the Telugu version released only on 21 March 2015 to negative reviews and became a flop. Nani played a dual role in his career for the first time.
Arvind Shivashankar (Nani), who came to the city from a rural area, is a naive employee in a company. He cannot tolerate corruption, bribery, breaking rules, lavishness, and the urban culture of youth in cities. He is caught by traffic police for a minor mistake though not of his own. Although he has all documents with him, he is asked a bribe by traffic policeman. When he refuses to pay the bribe, a complaint is booked against him and he is sentenced by the court, even though he complains about the bribe.
Finally, he does a sting operation with two of his friends and 10 honest employees in various government offices by applying for identity cards like PAN card, voter card, and ration card for an anonymous person.Sarathkumar as CBI officer Michael (guest appearance)
