Kalyan (Chiranjeevi) marries Rekha (Vijayashanti) but comes up against her arrogant and dominating mother-in-law Chamundeshwari Devi (Vanisree). Most of the plot deals with complicated familial tribulations and ends with the hero getting even with his mother-in-law, whom he eventually rescues and humanises when her evil accomplices frame her for murder. The enormous success of the film led to both Chiranjeevi and Vanisree repeating aspects of their roles in several later films, also spawning a new genre of ‘mother-inlaw’ films in which class antagonisms are often played out with a lower-class son-in-law (cf. Alluda Majaaka, 1995).
