During the time of engagement, Bhaskar's mother (Radha Kumari) finds out that Jyothi is not their own and also accuses her original mother as a slut when Shekar revolts and starts narrating the past. Shekar has been brought up by his maternal uncle Bhushaiah (Gummadi) along with his cousin Radha (Sarada). Bhushaiah wants to marry them, but his shrewish wife Kanthamma (Suryakantham) opposesit as Shekar is needy. Thereafter, Shekar gets an appointment in a factory owned by a millionaire Ananda Rao (Nagabhushanam) and his daughter Shobha loves him. Meanwhile, Bhushaiah seeks a rich alliance for Radha with a guy Mohan (Ramana Murthy), circumstances make them come closer before marriage and Radha becomes pregnant. During that time, Bhushaiah becomes bankrupt, so Mohan deceives Radha and leaves for abroad. At that moment, Shekar arrives, to protect Radha's honor, he decides to marry her and informs Shobha. Soon, she reaches the venue and questions Shekar of the reason behind his betrayal. Radha overhears the conversation and leaves the house, requesting Shekar to marry Shobha when Bhushaiah dies of a heart attack. After that, Shekar and Shobha get married and start living happily.
Eventually, Radha is safeguarded by a truck driver Ranganna (Bhanu Prakash), where she gives birth to a baby girl. Later Ranganna joins at Ananda Rao's, through him Shekar knows the whereabouts of Radha, when he reaches there, Radha slays a goon who tried to molest her and is sentenced to 5 years. Now Shekar takes the baby to his house without revealing her identity and the couple rears the baby as their own by the name Jyothi. Years roll by, Radha realises when the truth comes forward, which leads to misunderstandings and disputes between Shekar and Shobha, even Ananda Rao denounces Shekar. At the same time, Mohan returns, unexpectedly, he is the son of Ananda Rao's friend Chakradharam (Venkateswara Rao), who listens to their quarrel and plots to get rid of Shekar to possess Shobha and her property. So, he poses as a reformed person and shows his contrition to Radha, requests to marry, takes her out and tries to slaughter her. Learning of it, Shekar, along with Ananda Rao and Shobha rush, where they spot the wickedness of Mohan, so, they get him arrested, when Radha dies announcing the virtue of Shekar.
