It stars Venkatesh and Vijayashanti playing the lead roles, with music composed by Ilaiyaraaja. The film was a remake of the Tamil film Chinna Gounder. The film was a flop at the box office.
Chinnarayudu (Venkatesh) is the arbitrator and the most respected person in a village and sees to it that all the people live happily. Whenever injustice comes to the fore, he appears to resolve it in an authentic manner. He lives with his mother Durgamma (Nirmalamma). Chinnarayudu's brother-in-law Pasupathi (Mohan Raj) is always an opponent and against him. Gowri (Vijayashanti), a girl in the village, lives by rearing the goats and has funny fights with Chinnarayudu and they both silently love each other. Gowri has a debt of a large amount to Pasupathi for educating her sister Ganga (Haritha); she is not able to repay the money, so the issue goes to Chinnarayudu's judgment, then a situation arises; Gowri has to collect money from the villagers for repaying her debt and ultimately lands up getting married to Chinnarayudu.
After some time, in an auction, Chinnarayudu loses to Pasupathi, bearing a grudge, Pasupathi mixes poison in a fish lake and puts the blame on Chinnarayudu. Prakash Rao (Vinod), is a person who was brought up and educated by Chinnarayudu, but he feels that he has been insulted him many times, in ire of that, he prepares to give evidence against Chinnarayudu. Gowri comes to know that, she pleads with him a lot, but at last, she doesn't have any other alternative to stopping him, except to kill him with an axe. Gowri has been sent to remand and the case is under judgment.
Meanwhile, Ganga becomes pregnant; Chinnarayudu takes the blame on himself and for that, Durgamma sends him out of the house. In jail, Gowri attempts suicide. Chinnarayudu meets her in the hospital and reveals the truth: "the person who made Ganga pregnant is none other than Prakash Rao, no one will believe this, that's why he took the blame", then Gowri realizes it. At the same time, Chinnarayudu comes to know that Prakash Rao did not die since Gowri hit him with an axe and after that, Pasupathi killed him. Chinnarayudu proves this and makes Gowri realize it. Ganga gives birth to a baby, she also tells the truth to everyone and dies. Chinnarayudu catches Pasupathi and gets him to the panchayat (town council); he also realizes his mistake and surrenders himself to the Police.
