Jayam Manadera (transl. Victory is Ours) is a 2000 Indian Telugu-language action drama film produced by D. Suresh Babu under the Suresh Productions banner, directed by N. Shankar. It stars Venkatesh, Soundarya and Bhanupriya, with music composed by Vandemataram Srinivas. The film was recorded as a Super Hit at the box office. The film was the biggest opening grosser in Tollywood at its release. Later, the film was dubbed into Hindi as Dum: Man Of Power in 2011. The movie was also remade in Tamil as Manikanda.
Abhiram (Venkatesh) is a fun-loving guy who stays with his parents in London. Eight people win the Thumbs Up contest which gives them an opportunity to tour Europe. Uma (Soundarya) is one of the contest winners. Abhiram likes Uma and acts as their tour companion during their stay in Europe. A shy Uma could not express her love towards him, so she leaves a message in his answering machine. But Abhiram could not listen to the message at the right time. Hence, Uma presumes that Abhiram does not love her and goes back to India with her companions. Abhiram, who happened to listen to the message after Uma left, calls up Uma and makes contact with her. But it's too late for him, as Uma's father arranges his daughter's marriage with Jasjit, the brother of the main villain.
Meanwhile, Jasjit and his gang of goons are searching for a persona named Mahadeva Naidu. When Subramanyam's (Prasad Babu) father sees the photograph of Abhiram, he gets frightened and approaches Narasimha Naidu (Jaya Prakash Reddy). Narasimha wants to eliminate Mahadeva Naidu. When Abhiram comes to know that Uma may be forcibly married to another guy, he goes to her village to elope with her. Just when he reaches the railway station, a gang that is after his life chases him and Uma. Abhiram and Uma manage to evade the goons and flee. They are saved by Bhavani (Jhansi) in the nick of time. She takes him to a hideout where a group of people are hiding.
They explain to him about his past. He is the son of Mahadeva Naidu (also Venkatesh), who was the savior of the Dalits (untouchables) and downtrodden people of Karamchedu. He liberated the Dalits in that area and he was killed by the villains, who are none other than his relatives. Rudrama Naidu (son) and Jhansi (daughter) are taken away by Mahadeva Naidu's lieutenants so that they can be saved. Mahadeva Naidu swears that his son Rudrama Naidu would come back to destroy the villains and save the poor people. Rudrama Naidu, who was raised as Abhiraam, comes to know about his past and the rest of the film is about how he takes revenge.
