Gemeni is a 2002 Telugu language film directed by Saran and produced by M. Saravanan on AVM Productions. Starring Venkatesh and Namitha in the lead roles and music composed by RP Patnaik. The film is remake of the Tamil film Gemini, released the same year. The film's title was spelt 'Gemeni' to differentiate from the original Tamil version. The film recorded as Average at box-office.
The story of Gemini revolves around Gemini (Venkatesh) and Ladda (Kalabhavan Mani), two contemporary rowdies in Vijayawada. Gemini's friend is murdered by Ladda's friend. Then Gemini and his gang search for the person who murdered his friend and kills him. This incident marks the start of their rivalry.
Meanwhile, Gemini meets Manisha Natwarlal (Namitha) and falls in love with her. To gain her affections he goes to study in an evening college as her classmate, and eventually, she too falls in love with him.
Gemini and Ladda clash again for a market holdout. Using his brilliant tactics, Gemini fools and wins against Ladda which drives him crazy. In the meantime, Vijayawada gets a new Police Commissioner in Viswanath (Murali). He arrests both Gemini and Ladda. Understanding their rivalry, Viswanath puts them in a private cell so they can beat each other to death and at the same time can put a finish line to rowdyism. But instead, Gemini convinces Ladda to plead Viswanath to give them a chance to lead a normal life. Gemini's trick works and they both are given a chance. While Gemini changes his life, Ladda did not change his life. He keeps on disturbing Gemini and wants him to help him out in his business. But instead, Gemini informs about Ladda and his activities to Viswanath. So Ladda is now in jail. Meanwhile, Gemini tries to reunite with Manisha as he had changed now and eventually she does forgive him.
After some months Viswanath gets transferred as the transport DG of Andhra Pradesh and the new Police Commissioner (Kota Srinivasa Rao) arrives, but to Gemini's bad luck he is corrupt and releases Ladda from jail. Now Ladda and the new Commissioner urge Gemini to help him in his business. But he still tries to stay away from them.
Forcing Gemini to return to his old business, he would later kill Gemini's right hand and who's also a best friend to him. Then in the climax, Gemini tricks the new Commissioner to kill Ladda. The new Commissioner is transferred as transport DGP and Viswanath becomes the new Commissioner of Police. The film ends with Gemini starting to lead a fresh life with Manisha.
