Telugu melodrama about feudal marital life. The young bride Padmavati (Vanisree, in one of her best-known performances) is sent to her new home with injunctions to regard her husband as father, god, teacher and so on and always to ‘earn’ her keep. What she finds is an exploitative mother-in-law, an uncaring husband and a family friend who tries to rape her. However, her exemplary virtuousness eventually transforms everyone.
