Raagala 24 Gantallo (transl. In the next 24 hours) is a 2019 Indian Telugu-language murder mystery directed by Srinivasa Reddy starring Satya Dev, Eesha Rebba, Sriram, Ganesh Venkatram and Musskan Sethi.[3] The plot of the film is inspired by Agatha Christie's play The Unexpected Guest.[4] The film was dubbed and released in Tamil as Varappogum 24 Manikul.


Three criminals - Vineeth, Puneeth, and Adyuth - serving a death sentence for murder and rape, are on the run. They enter the house of Rahul (Satyadev Kancharana) a well-known ad filmmaker 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) an IAS officer and her college friend. Later, unknowingly to her, he secretly operates and removes her uterus because he does not like kids and pressures her to act in his ads. That is why she killed him to free herself. Meanwhile, cops who are searching for the criminals try to nab them, but Vidya tactically saves them.

Vidya, observing the criminals' gentle nature, believes they are innocent and questions them why they are on the run. The criminals narrate their story. The friends are staying with Meghana, a struggling model, and all are equally affectionate with each other. One day, Meghana got an audition call from Rahul's office for an ad film. Meghana happily attends the audition and comes along with them. There, Rahul reveals that it was a nude photoshoot for making a condoms ad, and Meghana refuses to work in the film. Rahul pressures her to do the film, which leads to a sexual assault, almost killing her on the spot. Rahul then calls his friend Narasimha (Sriram), a corrupt policeman. Then, observing the situation, the friends attacks Rahul, but he manages to defeat them. Narasimha comes on time and frames the friends in Meghana's murder and assault and relives Rahul from the crime. Then, Meghana becomes conscious, and Rahul fears for the circumstances. Narasimha kills her to make a perfect crime. Later, the court sentences the friends to death, but they escape from the cops and decide to kill the duo who are responsible for Meghana's death.

After hearing the friends' story, Vidya decided to help them kill Narasimha. Finally, the film ends at Narasimha's home with a hard struggle; the four kill Narasimha and successfully escape.
