Krantiveer is the Hindi dubbed version of Telugu movie Hanumanthu starring Srihari, Madhu Sharma, Pradeep Rawat, K R Vijaya and Vijaya Chander.
The story is about the eponymous Hanumanthu (Srihari), a simpleton of huge strength but of little guile or tact. He lives with his grandmother (K R Vijaya) in a remote village. In the village, Krishnamurthy (Pradeep Rawat) calls the shots as he is a revered freedom fighter. But there is the other side to him that nobody in the village knows about. Meanwhile, Hanumanthu falls in love with his uncle's daughter Sathyvathi (Madhu Sharma), a wannabe beauty queen. In that quest, she takes off to Hyderabad and Hanumanthu accompanies her. In the city, Hanumanthu runs into Krishnamurthy in a quaint situation. Hanumanthu also gets to know Seetharamaiah (Vijaya Chander) who knows the true picture of Krishnamurthy, and also reveals the details of Hanumanthu's father Hanumanthiah (Srihari in a double role). He is the real freedom fighter and Krishnamoorthy after usurping that position from him had also murdered him. So the stage is set for Hanumanthu to go after Krishnamoorthy and avenge the death of his father and expose Krishnamoorthy's real face to the world.
