Raghavaraju lives in this ancestral house built by his forefathers consisting of many generations living in the same household as a Joint family. However, with changing times, Ragahvaraju's NRI two other sons, Ravi and Kalyan "Nani" and NRI daughter Jhansi (Indraja) live in the United States 47, Canada 40, and Australia 43 as nuclear families. After a gap of 10 long years, all of his children arrive in the village during the holiday season of Makar Sankranti, under mysterious circumstances after they receive an email from Raghavaraju, who expresses his wish to divorce his wife.

Nithya (Anupama Parameswaran), 21, is the daughter of Jhansi. Soon Nithya and Raju fall in love but do not express it to each other. The siblings soon reunite. Raju and Nithya set up a meeting of their uncle with his old love interest. However, Jhansi asks Raju to reject Nithya, which he does but which leaves her heartbroken.

Raghavaraju and Janakamma reveal that they are not going to divorce but getting separated from each other, while Janakamma wants to live with her children. Raghavaraju wants to see her wife happy, so he emails his children so that they can come home and take their mother with them. Raju sent the divorce papers to a lawyer to make them understand the value of family. After Raghavaraju's words, they felt sorry for avoiding their parents. Jhansi accepts Nithya and Raju's marriage as they are in true love, and their marriage was accepted by the whole family. All of them celebrate Sankranthi and promise to meet at Ugadi in their village, while Nithya stays with her grandparents and Raju and his parents.
