Plot[edit]

Keerthana (Ramya Krishna) is an orphan who is being brought up by a villager whose wife doesn't like her at all. Keerthana is learning dance from the famous teacher of the village. In this process, she falls in love with Kaasi (Akkineni Nagarjuna), who belongs to a very low caste. The villagers believe that Keerthana is the goddess who came to save them and their village and hence Keerthana had lost her personal life. But now she has dared to love Kaasi and now she wanted to marry him. But will the village people allow their goddess to become a wife and what are the cruel consequences Keerthana and Kaasi had to face?
