The rich Manohar (Jaggaiah) marries the poor Shanta (Jamuna), neglecting to inform his conservative and tyrannical father. The father forces him to marry a girl of his choice, even as Shanta dies in a storm leaving an infant daughter behind. The daughter is rescued by the criminal Kotaiah (Ranga Rao) who, while raising her, becomes a reformed character. Manohar suffers, unable to declare the woman to be his daughter. The melodrama is remembered for Ranga Rao’s performance. A commercial flop though a success among the urban upper class.
