The retired government official Purshottama Rao (Daita Gopalam) borrows money to get his eldest daughter Kalindi (Bhanumathi) married to an old-man Lingaraju (Balijepalli). He is a money lender and already married twice. Kalindi does not like this marriage and commits suicide before the marriage can take place. Lingaraju refuses to return the dowry money.
