Shoba Devi (P. R. Varalakshmi) is a very proud arrogant woman who treats her elder daughter-in-law Aruna (Rajyalakshmi) like a slave and sends her out of the house for violating her orders. Aruna's younger sister Jhansi (Radhika) returns home after completing her studies when she learns about her sister's problem. Now she decides to set-right her sister's life. So, she plans to marry Shoba Devi's younger son Kalyan Chakravarthy (Rajendra Prasad), to enter their house. Jhansi understands that Kalyan wants to marry an innocent village girl when she changes her attire, reaches their village and marries Kalyan. Rest of the story is a comic tale that how Jhansi teaches a lesson to Shoba Devi.
