Malayalam superstar Mammootty has enacted YSR. Also starring Rao Ramesh, Posani Krishna Murali and Anasuya among others, Yatra is directed by Mahi V Raghav of Anando Brahma fame. Composer K has provided the score of the film. Shiva Meka is presenting the film, while Vijay Chilla and Shashi Devireddy are producing it on 70mm Entertainments.

Yatra’s story is all about the historic Padayatra of YSR that changed the course of Andhra Pradesh's politics. People across the state thronged to join the Padayatra to lend their support to YSR. 

In 2003, YSR took a long walk across the state and covered about 1475 km on foot. This assured the victory of his party in the 2004 election.
