Satyam (Mohan lal) is a mechanic who fights against any injustice to common people. He comes to Hyderabad and sets up Janatha Garage and start repairing everything including human beings.

Anand (NTR) is a environmental science student and he loves nature and encourages people to plant saplings. He comes to Hyderabad on college project and through environmental issue, he joined with Satyam. Rest of the story is about what happens when two powerful men join hands together for a social issue.


Mohanlal is a backbone of this movie. He lived as a character and given dominated performance. NTR delivers good acting as per the requirement of the script. No other Telugu lead actor would have allowed such a dominant and powerful role of Mohanlal to co-exist in a story.

Nitya Menen and Samantha got very short roles in this movie anve gave very nice performance.


Janatha Garage comes with a very routine revenge story, but the director Koratala Siva narrates this story with lots of twists and turns that make it to be watched once. The first half of the film is average and the second half is fast and engaging except the climax portion.
