NTR plays Rajasekhar, a young lawyer who starts his practice and wins his first case. He is the son of a bigshot Sasibhushan rao (Jaggayya) and brother of Padma (Jayalakshmi). Padma falls in love with Kishore (Chiranjeevi) who is a singer playing guitar at local clubs. Sasibhushan rao does not accept their love and insult Kishore for his poverty. Padma attempts suicide by consuming sleeping pills but her brother Rajasekhar saves her on time and performs her marriage with Kishore during the absence of their father. Their father gets angry at them but excuses his daughter and gets close to them when she gives birth to a kid. Rajasekhar on the other hand keeps meeting a girl, Rati and her uncle Allu, who cheat people for money. He tries to reform them and employs them in his own office. In an unexpected incident, Rajasekhar realises that his father was related to a smuggling gang who deals with gold and diamonds. His father is killed but does not reveal anything about the gang. Rajasekhar meets Gangulu(Satyanarayana) who was once helped by his father and tries to take his advice in bursting the gang. In his attempts he is shocked to know that Kishore (Chiru) is involved with the gang. He warns Kishore to quit this and help him to trace their boss. Kishore doesn’t listen to him but when his boss kidnaps his kid and asks him to kill Rajasekhar, Kishore understands where he is standing and decides to turn in favour of his brother-in-law. Both heroes cheat the gang and enter their den to realise that their boss is none other than Gangulu, who was acting all the way by being on Rajasekhar’s side. The movie ends with the heroes fighting the gang out and saving Kishore’s child.
