Major Subbanna's (Balakrishna) house, who is an old-friend. Due to a mishap by his assistant, Murthy has to act as compounder and his assistant has to act as Doctor. Subbanna organises kacheri, performance by the Doctor. Murthy fills voice from behind the screen, while his assistant (M. S. Umesh) simply mouths the song Purandara Daasa's "Bombeyaatavayya" hymn. Their mischief is caught by Radha (Madhavi). Murthy falls in love with Radha, Subbanna's daughter. Subbanna is angry that his daughter has fallen in love, not with the doctor, but a lowly assistant. Murthy's father turns up to clear the confusion. Both his father and Subbanna's family visit Dharmasthala. Murthy meets his school teacher & mentor and his daughter Kamala (Geetha).

Subbanna shifts to Bangalore, intending to settle down after marrying Radha to Murthy. Murthy's teacher dies and his daughter Kamala, who is now a mental patient comes to stay at Murthy. Murthy gets her treated by Dr Jeena Das (Doddanna). Subbanna's elder brother (Parvathavani), who is an astrologer checks Murthy's hand. He predicts Murthy has dwi-patni yoga, 2 marriages, meaning Murthy's first wife would have a short-life.

Subbanna breaks the marriage, fearing for his daughter's life. Dejected Murthy confronts Subbanna, who lies his daughter is to wed her dead mother's brother in America.

Subbanna, meanwhile awaits Kamala's death. Murthy and his father confront Subbanna, who is leading a secluded life in the adjacent house. Murthy quotes Purandara Daasa's "Sakala grahabala neene sarasijaaksha" poem, which advises Devotion to Lord alone would thwart all the planetary effects. Kamala hears this conversation.
