Chandu (Gopichand) is the son of the landlord, Sivayya (Satyaraj). However, he was brought up by his maternal uncle (Chandramohan) abroad and doesn’t know his parents.
His uncle had bluffed that Chandu’s parents died when he was too young. However, Chandu’s uncle sends his photographs to Sivayya to show him that his son has grown up as per his wishes. Chandu learns martial arts but never gets an opportunity to fight with anyone.
Once Chandu falls in love with a girl called Mahalakshmi (Trisha), but she never reciprocated. Later she decides to reveal her love. But, by that time, her aunt (Telangana Sakuntala) takes her away to India.
Somehow, Maha calls up Chandu and expresses her love and pleads with Chandu to save her as her aunt wants her to marry her son. Learning this, Chandu too reaches India.
