K. Krishna Murthy / KK works as an art director in Mumbai and his new wife Satyabhama / Bhama works as a stenographer in Kerala for a low salary. To solve their financial problems, they seek a job in a big company and pretend to be unmarried as their boss Sridhar Rao would give job only to one member of a family. So the couple lies that they are unmarried and joins in the company. Sridhar Rao's only daughter Vasundhara / Vasu starts liking KK and moves close with him, which makes Bhama jealous and suspect her husband's character. Parallelly, Sridhar Rao's brother-in-law Giri flirts Bhama and tries to trap her. This leads to destruction and disturbances in KK and Bhama's marriage. Rest of the story is how the couple overcome all these problems and make everyone realize the greatness of marriage.
