Telugu remake of Ajoy Kar’s Suchitra Sen hit Saat Pake Bandha (1963), substantially diluting both the performance and plot of the original. Idealists Bharati (Bhanumathi) and Chandrasekhar (NTR) get married against the wishes of Bharati’s mother who wants a richer son-in-law. Chandrasekhar refuses to meet Bharati’s parents and later Bharati falls out of favour with Chandrasekhar’s stepmother. The couple decide to divorce before things work out in the end. The film reunited the successful team of Bhanumathi and NTR at the Bharani Studio. Bhanumathi’s only duet with P.B. Srinivas, Neetilona, was appreciated.
