Varappogum 24 Manikul (Eng: In the next 24 hours) is a 2019 Indian Telugu-language murder mystery directed by Srinivasa Reddy starring Eesha Rebba, Satyadev Kancharana, Sriram, Ganesh Venkatram and Musskan Sethi. The plot of the film is inspired by Agatha Christie’s play The Unexpected Guest.
Three criminals, serving a jail term for murder, are on the run. They enter the house of ad filmmaker Rahul (Satyadev Kancharana) and Vidya (Eesha Rebba), who are a married couple. Much to their shock, the criminals find that Rahul has been murdered by Vidya. On her part, Vidya is trying to hide her husband’s death.
This is when she starts narrating her story to the criminals. Rahul was a perverted husband who suspected that Vidya had an affair with Ganesh (Ganesh Venkatraman), her college friend.
The rest of the story is about what transpired between the husband-wife duo, how the criminals are tied to their story, and what role a cop (played by Sriram) has in all this.
