Sexual fantasy in the Vishwanath style made by the producers of Sagara Sangamam (1983). The photographer Devadas (Sudhakar) offers shelter to a mysterious woman he names Sitara (Bhanupriya). She later becomes a film star and he her manager. Her secretiveness about her past is broken when she shows she is terrified by caged birds and cannot bear to work in an abandoned palace. It turns out that she used to live in that palace, a virtual prisoner of her impoverished but proud zamindar brother (Sarath Babu), until she was rescued by a group of travelling performers. At the end of the film, the cynical manager writes an unauthorised biography of Sitara and she once again has to abandon her home and seek her future elsewhere.
