Illarikam literally means bridegroom goes to the bride family and lives permanently with them; as against the custom of bride going into the groom family. This custom is observed in some rich families where the bride is the only child to their parents.

The plot[edit]

Venu (Akkineni Nageswara Rao) studies with the help of his maternal uncle. He falls in love with the daughter of a zamindar (Gummadi Venkateswara Rao) i.e. Radha (Jamuna). He married to her and stays in their house as Illarkam. Sundaramma (Hemalatha), wife of Zamindar does not like this and insults him indirectly. Govindayya (C.S.R. Anjaneyulu) creates problems between Venu and Radha. How Venu solves all the problems is the story.
