Missamma (మిస్సమ్మ) is a Telugu movie, released in the year 1955 featuring Nandamuri Taraka Rama rao and Akkineni Nageswara Rao . It was produced under Vijaya banner and was directed by L. V. Prasad. The title character, Missamma, was played by the actress Savitri. Missamma is the movie adaptation of Yotish Banerjee's classic Bengali comedy Manmoyee Girls School. The dialogues and song lyrics were written by Pingali Nagendra Rao and sung by A. M. Rajah, P. Leela and P. Susheela.

The movie's undercurrent themes

"M. T. Rao" (pun intended - to be read as "empty rao") and Mary are foils for each other - Mary's aggressive personality and M. T. Rao's meekness are frequently juxtaposed. Mary is a staunch Christian in this movie, and in many scenes complains about Hindu customs and the Hindu pantheon. M. T. Rao, on the other hand, is knowledgeble and accepting of several religions, having read the Bible, Koran, Bhagavad Gita, and Rig Veda. The undercurrent religion theme is best exemplified when Paul, Mary's father says that, "as rivers join at the sea, all the religions and devotees only pray to the Almighty".


The songs in the movie are very melodious and situational.
