Vijay (Vinod Kumar) is the president of a village. He rescues the simple Satheyya (Dasari Narayana Rao) from an attack by thieves. Vijay later marries Satheyya's daughter Lakshmi (Yamuna) against the parental wishes of Kanthamma (Nirmalamma), who wants him to marry his niece Rani (Aishwarya). Vijay also brings his father-in-law to live with him. These decisions anger his brother-in-law Pothuraju (Kota Srinivasa Rao), who plots to discredit Vijay's family. Lakshmi accidentally dies in a bomb explosion which was planted to make a ditch. Satheyya feels sad that his son-in-law could not forget his daughter. He persuades him to marry Rani. Rani also admires him because of his simplicity and love. But Puthuraju is not happy about all the attention he gets. Satheyya is driven out of Vijay's house after Pothuraju accuses the old man of being a womaniser. Vijay finally sees through Pothuraju's evil designs, but not before Satheyya commits suicide.
