Satyam (N. T. Rama Rao), a middle-class employee, leads a happy life along with his younger collegian brother Shekhar (Shobhan Babu), as well a younger sister Sharada (Chandrakala). He is in love with a school-teacher, Susheela (Krishna Kumari), and both hope to get married after Sharada and Shekhar's marriages. Luck shines upon them and Sharada's marriage is arranged with Dr. Ramesh (Harinath), while Shekhar decides to wed Lalitha (Vanisri), the only daughter of a wealthy man, Rao Bahadoor Ranga Rao (Nagabhushanam). Satyam mortgages his house with his paternal uncle Dharmaiah (Relangi). Then things turn sour after Sharada loses her vision in an accident; the wedding gets canceled. Satyam decides to remain single to look after his sister and permits Shekhar and Lalitha to get married. The marriage takes place, and Lalitha moves in. Shortly thereafter misunderstandings crop up, and lead to arguments, with Shekhar and Lalitha leaving the house. Then Satyam is fired from his job, Dharmaiah takes over the house, and asks him to leave. Homeless, they turn to Shekhar for help, but he refuses to assist them in any way. Then Satyam falls ill and gets separated from his sister, while Shekhar takes to horse-racing and alcohol, and a path that will only lead to self-destruction.
