At the command of tyrannical Kampanna Dora, Chief Jayanth raids many villages in the region to loot them of their stock, wealth and food. One day the later is slapped by Shanta and is asked to leave her people alone. This incident changes Jayanth's outlook and he decides to quit and re-locates to live in the very same village. He meets with hostility but gains some sympathy after he rescues Shanta from a bull as well as befriends feisty Vasanth. He then uses his time to train the villagers to defend themselves and both Shanta and he fall in love - little knowing that Shanta's father and Vasanth's mother have already committed to get their children married. Soon animosity will break out between Jayanth and Vasanth, while an enraged Kampanna, determined to teach Jayanth a lesson, prepares to raid the village.

The movie was remade in Hindi as 'Insaniyat'.

The movie marks the first collaboration between popular actors N. T. Rama Rao and Akkineni Nageswara Rao.

Actor N. T. Rama Rao refused to let the director employ a stunt double and fought with a violent bull himself which caused his right hand injury and despite the accident he came to shooting the very next day.
