Abhiram (Venkatesh) is a fun-loving guy who stays with his parents in London. Eight people won the Thumbs Up contest, which gave them an opportunity to tour Europe. Uma (Soundarya) is one of the contest winners. Abhiram likes Uma and acts as a tour companion for them during their stay in Europe. A shy Uma could not express her love towards him, so she leaves a message in his answering machine. But Abhiram could not listen to the message at the right time. Hence, Uma presumes that Abhiram does not love her and leaves back to India with her companions. Abhiram, who happened to listen to the message after Uma left, calls up Uma and makes contact with her. But it's too late for him, as Uma's father commits a marriage for his daughter with Jasjit, the brother of the main villain.

Meanwhile, Jasjit and his gang of goons are searching for "Mahadeva Naidu". When Subramanyam's (Prasad Babu) father sees the photograph of Abhiram, he gets frightened and approaches Narasimha Naidu (Jaya Prakash Reddy) with the photograph. Narasimha wants to eliminate "Mahadeva Naidu". When Abhiram comes to know that Uma may be forcibly getting married to another guy, he decides to come to her village to marry his sweetheart. Just when he comes off the railway station, a gang that is after his life chases him and Uma. Abhiram and Uma managed to slip off from the goons and flee. During that time, goons again chase him and he is saved by Bhavani (Jhansi) in the nick of time. She takes him to a hideout where a group of people are hiding.

They explain to him about his past. He is the son of Mahadeva Naidu (also Venkatesh), who was the savior or Dalitulu and downtrodden people of "Karamchedu". He liberated the "Dalitulu" in that area and he was killed by the villains, who are none other than his relatives. At the time of the killing, Rudrama Naidu (son) and Jhansi (daughter) are taken away by Mahadeva Naidu's lieutenants so that they can be saved. At the time of killing, Mahadeva Naidu swears that "Rudrama Naidu" would come back and destroy the villains and save the poor people. Rudrama Naidu, who was raised as "Abhiraam", comes to know about his past, and the rest of the film is about how he takes revenge.
