Sangeetha and her two sisters live with their cruel aunt, who runs a small hotel. Abbulu joins their hotel as an employee. He later tells Sangeetha that he is their brother, Vasu, who ran away in childhood. He solves all their problems and romances with Srikakulam Chittamma.

Veera Raghava Reddy is an amputee Rayalaseema don who is seeking revenge on Abbulu. When his sons fail, he sends his daughter Anjali to destroy him. In the process, she reveals that Abbulu is actually Samarasimha Reddy and that he had killed Vasu. To prove his love for Vasu’s sisters, Anjali challenges him to drink poison and Abbulu/Vasu/Samarasimha lands in a hospital. Satyanarayana, a police superintendent, reveals Samarasimha's true story.

Veera Raghava Reddy had killed Samarasimha's parents, his fiancee (Sanghavi), sister and brother-in-law. Seeking revenge, Samarsimha severed Veera’s legs and right arm, in the process Samarasimha kills two of Veera's four sons. In the fight Samarasimha Reddy accidentally killed Vasu. Samarasimha then assumed Vasu’s duties as a brother.

Learning this, Anjali repents for her actions. Samarasimha Reddy accepts the collective decision to marry Anjali to end the feud between the two families. After the marriage, Veera goes back on his word and tries to kill his own daughter Anjali and Samarasimha, but fails. Anjali is admitted to the hospital where she recovers. Seeing everyone, including his sons, supporting Samarasimha Reddy, Veera Raghava Reddy commits suicide.
