The set of three dotes on their adorable little sister Swati and prepared everything for her bliss. They owe that three of them will wedlock in her sight. Firstly, Swati fixes a match for Sivaramaraju with a benignant Rajeswari. Every year, it is customary for their clan members to decorate the goddess of the village with garland and dance in front of the temple. On that occasion, Nagendra Varma Zamindar of the adjacent village attends with his son Aakash to offer the gold to the goddess as a solemn promise. But they are stopped until the arrival of Sivaramaraju. Then, Aakash uses force when Ramaraju mishandles with him. Being Narendra Varma is affronted, he ploys by knitting Swati with Aakash and crafty demands for their entire wealth which they cheerfully gave up. Afterward, they shift to a little cottage and make cultivation their livelihood. At this stage, Swati restricts her brothers' visits to keep them away from ignominy.

Meanwhile, Rajeswari’s father breaks the alliance as Sivaramaraju is bankrupted. However, Rajeswari omits her father and proceeds for Sivaramaraju. Accordingly, he marries her at Swati’s residence where Sivaramaraju faces the music, but he thresholds it with patience. Time being, Swati conceives, yet she is subjected to bedevilment by her in-laws. Ramaraju nuptials his cousin Janaki which Sivaramaraju smartly carries out before Swathi. Soon after, vainglory Janaki hostiles the joint family and swears to exact their happiness. However, the kin confronts it through their idolization when Janaki also realizes her mistake. Parallelly, Raju falls for his collegian Rani daughter of an MP. Therein, Rani's brother Madan hits Raju hard and Sivaramaraju retaliates against him. Knowing it, MP moves on to wipe out the household. But shockingly, he bows down before the photograph of Sivaramarajus's father Ananda Bhupathi Raju and drives rearward.

25 years ago, Ananda Bhupathi is an arbiter who is esteemed as a deity. In his reign, that area is eternal from four sides. At that time, MP is his subordinate and he triumphed with his support. Once, Ananda Bhupathi verdicts and fastens Zamindar Veeraraju's daughter Rajyalakshmi with her love interest Ramakrishna that belongs to a lower tier. Hence, fumed vicious Veeraraju conspires to kill the pair, eventually, they are safeguarded by Ananda Bhupathi. Since Veeraraju is unable to beat Ananda Bhupathi, he connives through genuflect. On the eve of the festival, Ananda Bhupati has a vow that he vouchsafes anything to one who prays before him. Herein, Veeraraju slyly implores for his head which he bestows him without any hesitation endorsing his authority and younger responsibility to infant Sivaramaraju. The sacred sacrifice of Ananda Bhupathi changed Veeraraju too and is immortalized in history.

Presently, MP accepts the espousal as a boon. During the time of the wedding, Swati is forbidden and tormented by Aakash. By means, Sivaramarajus go there and they are battered by showing endanger to Swati. Whereat, furious Swati revolts, ends her relationship with Aakash by removing the wedding chain (Mangalasutram), and quits with her brothers. At last, Swati gives birth to a baby boy when Aakash & Narendra Varma reform and plead pardon. Finally, the movie ends on a happy note with the reunion of the family.
