Madhava Rao's mother dies when he is a child, leaving five sisters with him. His father is arrested for killing his mother by beating her in a fit of rage. Madhava hates his father but loves his sisters with a protective attitude towards them. As they grow up, Madhava is constantly worried about his sisters and tries to keep them safe. He assaults local youths who try to flirt with or even look at them. As a result, they label him "Hitler" due to his violent and domineering tendencies. Life nevertheless runs fairly smoothly in the village, though all the villagers are careful around him.
