After reaching home, Sridhar takes up his first case and proves an innocent girl as a prostitute. Due to which the girl commits suicide which suffers Sridhar out of contrition. At that moment, his driver Chiranjeevi (Ramakrishna) consoles and makes him understand the difference between justice & injustice. There onwards, Sridhar decides to stand for piety. Meanwhile, Sridhar's maternal uncle Dattudu (Gollapudi Maruthi Rao) who behaves like a dictator of a village and performs a lot of atrocities along with adjacent village head Lingaiah (Nutan Prasad) brings a false case where Sridhar supports the truth and punishes the accuses. Keeping this grudge in mind Dattudu tries to kill Sridhar when Chiranjeevi sacrifices his life to save him. Before dying, he entrusts his family responsibilities to Sridhar. In this issue, Sridhar has to differ with his father and leaves the house. After that, Sridhar reaches Chiranjeevi's village which is headed by Lingaiah, meets his parents Raghavaiah (Kanta Rao) & Janakamma (Anjali Devi) where he is surprised to see Lakshmi as their daughter. At Present, Sridhar merges with them, but Lakshmi has a doubt, so, she digs out the truth and blames him for the cause. On the other side, Lingaiah has a bad eye on Lakshmi and threatens Raghavaiah to make his marriage with her for his debt which leads to his death. Even Lingaiah enormities increase day by day who occupies entire fields of villagers and does not allow them to farm. Here Sridhar aids them when Lakshmi understands his virtue and both of them fall in love. Parallelly, Dattudu witnesses Sridhar and mistakes him as an identical person to him and makes a ploy with Lingaiah that to replace him as Sridhar to grab his property.
