Plot

The film begins in Mauritius where Bhanumati (Bhanu) a naughty girl resides with her uncle Bobby. Prakash an orphan is acquainted with Bhanu, they couple up and are shortly blessed with a baby boy Raja. Once Prakash hears that an act of violence took place in his hometown in Rayalaseema, he tries to contact his mother through a letter, but fails. So, he rushes to India along with his wife and kid. Bhanu understands that Prakash has hidden his true identity, that he belonged to an extremely feudal society. His father Narasimha is a powerful factionist. Since Prakash couldn't bear the savagery in that society, he had migrated to Mauritius.

As soon as the pair lands, Narasimha's foes try to kill Prakash. They almost succeed when, Narasimha's aides counter-attack and rescue them. They are taken home to Prakash's ancestral home where Bhanu is repulsed and frightened seeing the violent culture of Narasimha and his men. She actively hinders Narasimha's attempts to get to know his grandson. She finds solace in the company of her mother-in-law who showers her, Prakash and Raja with utmost affection. After a while, Prakash decides to go back. He hands their passports over to his best friend, Inspector Chinna and tells him to make their travel arrangements back to Mauritius.

Narasimha is invited to attend a wedding ceremony but, Prakash goes instead. On his way there, the antagonists attack Prakash and kill him. Learning this information, Bhanu quickly packs up, fearing the safety of her child. However, she stops at the request of her mother-in-law who requests her to at least stay till Prakash's funeral. Narasimha refuses to give up the child as he needs an heir to take a vendetta for his son's death. Bhanu is distraught, protests and makes several attempts to escape. Hence she is imprisoned in their house.

Meanwhile, Sarai Veeraraju, a petty thief does various crimes to achieve his life ambition of living in Dubai. Bhanu absconds with the aid of her mother-in-law. She collects their passports and tickets from Chinna when Narasimha's deputies chase her. She coincidentally happens across Veeraraju who protects her from her assailants. Bhanu offers Veeraraju the money he needs to go to Dubai and pleads with him to help her board a train to Hyderabad. Narasimha decides to kill Bhanu and take Raju back when his wife reprimands him, telling him that they too were partially responsible for their son's death, which reforms him. Veeraraju makes a plan on how to get her on the train when Narasimha's enemies ambush them. They are chased by both Narasimha's enemies and acolytes. Veeraraju accomplishes the task and helps her board the train to Hyderabad. But, sadly, dies amidst the violence. At last, Narasimha continues to pursue Bhanu till the airport and catches her before she can get on her flight. But instead of stopping her, asks her to forgive him, allowing her and Raju to leave. Bhanu forgives Narasimha and Raja says goodbye to his grandfather.
