Rangaiah is accused of murdering a diamond merchant and is sent to jail while his son is taken away. Lost and found by a childless couple, this boy is named as Varaprasad. The couple, Pichchaiah and Achchamma (Ramana Reddy and Suryakantham) has a daughter after that, and name her Leela. Varaprasad (NTR) becomes a doctor, starts a pharmacy with the help of Seethaiah, falls in love with Seethaiah's daughter Padma (Krishna Kumari) and leads a happy life. Then he finds out that he is not the couple's own son, so he sets out to find his biological parents. In a surprising twist, the now released Rangaiah is found to be innocent while the real murderer turns out to be Seethaiah.
