Chinnarayudu is the arbitrator and the most respected person in the village and sees to it that all the people live happily. Whenever injustice comes to the fore, he appears to resolve it authentically. He resolves agriculture issues as people in the village grow crops and fish in small ponds. He lives with his mother Durgamma. Chinnarayudu's brother-in-law Pasupathi is his rival. Gowri, 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; 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 marries Chinnarayudu.

After some time, in an auction, Chinnarayudu loses to Pasupathi, bearing a grudge, Pasupathi puts poison in a fish lake and blames Chinnarayudu. Prakash Rao is a person who was brought up and educated by Chinnarayudu, but he feels that he has been insulted many times, so he prepares to give evidence against Chinnarayudu. Gowri learns of it, and she pleads with him, but at last, she doesn't have any other alternative to stopping him, except to kill him with an ax. 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 learns that Prakash Rao did not die since Gowri hit him with an ax 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.
