Padmanabham (Jagapati Babu) is a miser who does anything to save money, because when he was a young boy, Padmanabham was driven out of his house along with his parents by an evil-hearted money lender (Tanikella Bharani), who gave him a condition: if by a stipulated time period, Padmanabham could raise enough money to buy back the house he could reclaim it as his own. Ramya (Ramya Krishna) not only likes him, she also falls deeply in love with him. Padmanabham doesn't want to do anything with her, but when Ramya suggests that two salaries are better than one, he thinks it's a brilliant idea and marries her. Now the troubles start: first, his sister Vijaya (Y. Vijaya) and her husband Totti Subramanyam (L. B. Sriram) pile on to him and then Ramya's good-for-nothing brother Ravi (Ravi Teja) also seeks shelter in their house. The worst, though, is yet to come for the grumbling Padmanabham: his wife gives birth to triplets, who all live together in a small house.

In a sub-plot, Padmanabham hires a housemaid Sonali (Vidya), who gets pregnant after some time, everyone suspects Padmanabham, but the situation turns out to be stranger, actually the truth is, Sonali is Padmanabhan boss son Anil's (Anil) separated wife. Finally, Padmanabham raises the money and reclaims his house back and even Ramya also realizes her mistake after knowing the truth from Anil. At the end of the film, Sonali also gives birth to triplets in the hospital.
