Embedded with charged emotions and family values, this radical relationship drama delves into the challenges faced by Malli (Sripriya) a naive villager. Prompted by a fortune- teller, she sets out to seek her fortune in the city. She begins working at the house of Madhu (Narayana Rao), but soon finds herself pregnant.
Madhu’s man-hating sister Bharathi (Sangeetha) initially helps her, but then abandons her when she falls in love with a Madhu's friend, Ravi who is later suspected of being Malli's lover. Who is the father of Malli's baby? Who will take care of Malli while she is pregnant and fragile? If the father of the baby were to realise his mistake and wish to marry her, would she accept?
The rest of the story delves into the offbeat love story between Bharathi and Ravi, whom she loves, but absolutely hates to admit.
