Abhilasha (Telugu: అభిలాష, English: Desire) is a 1983 Telugu film, directed by A. Kodandarami Reddy and was produced by K.S. Rama Rao. It is the film adaptation of Yandamuri Veerendranath's novel of the same name. Chiranjeevi, Radhika, Rao Gopal Rao, and Gollapudi Maruthi Rao played vital roles. Music was scored by Ilayaraja.


This story was based on a unique point of removing Section 302 from Indian Penal Code, which sentences death. Struggling lawyer Chiranjeevi (Chiranjeevi), lives with his roommate (Allu Aravind) and dreams of removing IPC Section 302. Reason behind his determination was his father's death sentence under 302, for adultery, which he didn't commit. Viswanatham (Rao Gopal Rao), a famous criminal lawyer in that city, sends an invitation to every famous lawyer for a party at his place, and by his secretary's mistake one invitation reaches Chiranjeevi and he gets a chance to meet Viswanatham and express his idea about IPC 302. He also meets Viswanatham's niece Archana (Radhika) at the party and falls in love with her. When their love starts blossoming, after a couple of duets, Archana has to attend a meeting in another city country and she leaves for few days. During this time Chiranjeevi comes up with a idea: to plan a fake murder, in which he will trap himself and gets death sentence. According to his plan, Viswanatham will show original pictures of the dead body to the governor at the last moment and rescue Chiranjeevi. Then, both wanted to file a petition in Supreme Court against IPC 302. They manage a lady's dead body and Chiranjeevi is sentenced to death, just as Chiranjeevi planned. In jail, guard Ganapathi (Rallapalli) is surprised to see Chiranjeevi happy before his death. Archana returns from abroad and finds out that Chiranjeevi will be hanged the next day. She goes to the jail to meet Chiranjeevi but Chiranjeevi acts like if he really did commit the crime out of lust (Archana still does not know about Chiranjeevi's plan). Archana leaves in disgust. Just a night before Chiranjeevi's hang, Viswanatham, who is on his way to meet governor to rescue Chiranjeevi, meets with an accident. Tense Chiranjeevi reveals everything to Ganapthi that this was all a fake and that he did not kill the girl and pleads for his help. Ganapathi runs to Archana's house to tell her the truth. After a night long struggle, they manage to get in touch with Viswanatham, who is alive and in hospital. They get the original negative photos and in the last moment Chiranjeevi is saved from being hanged.

But the story doesn't end happily here. Viswanatham throws a party to celebrate Chiranjeevi's success and announces Chiranjeevi-Archana's engagement. During this party a drunkard (Gollapudi) drags Chiranjeevi out of the party and Archana gets suspicious about their secret talk. She follows Chiranjeevi. Meanwhile Chiranjeevi still believes that the dead body he used for plan was not natural death, but she was killed by someone. Postmortem report shows that she was killed by a guy with four fingers on one hand. Archana remembers a goon, who attacked her on the night she saved Chiranjeevi, when she reached him to find out the source of dead body. Chiranjeevi reveals that he bought that body from that four fingered goon. Mystery slowly unfolds much to the surprise of viewers that, the lady who was killed was none other than, Viswanatham's daughter from his extramarital relationship. Viswnatham is arrested and in court, the judge sentences Viswanatham to death. But Chiranjeevi objects. He finds that the death penalty is ridiculous and that it is not a punishment to kill someone. To punish, one must suffer for his/her actions. After a short speech, the judge also objects and instead sentences 7 years to prison. Chiranjeevi and Archana marry and live happily.
