Gopi (Chiranjeevi), orphaned when his parents were killed by a maternal Uncle, Suryachandra Rao (Rao), becomes a police constable. He quits his job to assault a cruel cop who abuses a poor, hunger-striking teacher. Accused of trying to rape the villain’s arrogant, city-bred daughter Radha (Bhanupriya), who whips him in public, he forces her to marry him in order to teach her a lesson (cf. Alluda Majaaka, 1995, for the common theme of ‘marriage as punishment’ for a woman). Having ‘tamed’ her, he is next framed for a murder, another common narrative device in Chiranjeevi films. In the latter story, the corrupt cop Achaiah (Babu) feeds the villain to crocodiles to forestall a confession. The hero is eventually freed when the police overhear Achaiah boasting about his deeds.
