The old woman Gundamma has a son, an exploited stepdaughter and a spoilt daughter for whom she hopes to get a ‘resident’ son-in- law who can also look after the rest of the family. She gets two: the brothers Anji and Raja, who teach the old woman a lesson. Producer Chakrapani credited himself with the direction of the film’s Tamil version Manithan Maravillai but it was a failure, unlike the major success of the original Telugu. Regarded as the last film of Vijaya’s ‘golden age’.
