The drama unfolds when Rani's pregnant sister Kamala (Rajya Lakshmi) and her husband (Sarath Babu) along with their two kids visit from Chennai. Kamala's husband, who owns a recording studio, leaves for Chennai after a short stay in Kodaikanal.
After Kamala's accidental death, her father wishes to get Rani married to her brother—in-law and take care of the two kids. Rani has to choose between Raja and looking after her sister's family. Raja can't take this and takes to drinking as he loses hope of uniting with Rani. Unaware of Raja's connection to Rani, Kamala's widower meets Raja. There he notices Raja's artistic skills and offers him an opportunity to sing for an album at his recording theater. He introduces Raja to Rani at Rani's home before requesting Raja to live there until Raja's recording is complete.
