Pelli Chesukundham is a story of how Anand (Venkatesh), a multi-millionaire, supports Shanti (Soundarya), victim of a rape. Shanti witnesses a murder committed by Kali Charan (Mohan Raj) and reports it in the police station. His brother (Satya Prakash) rapes her to take revenge and her family doesn't want her to stay with them. Anand, knowing everything, welcomes her and gives her shelter in his house, though society disapproves of it.
Anand slowly falls in love with Shanti, but Shanti thinks highly of him and doesn't want to get close with him. Meanwhile, Anand's cousin Laila (Laila) comes back from U.S.A and starts pursuing Anand. She slowly comes to know that Anand was in love with Shanti and leaves him.
