Veeramachineni Harikrishna (Jagapati Babu) is a software professional who earns Rs. 50,000 a month. Under enormous pressure from his parents who want him married, his friend Bhagawan (Krishna Bhagawan), a lawyer always dominates his wife Satya Bhama (Hema (actress)|Hema) and she bears it all silently. So his advice to Hari is to dominate his wife from the beginning to lead a happy life. Lakshmi (Priyamani) is also a software professional earns the same salary. Lakshmi's close friend and guide Janaki (Jhansi) a domineering wife who keeps her husband Chalapathi (Sunil) under her toe, who tells Lakshmi basically the same thing.
Hari and Lakshmi are formally arranged to meet each other (Pelli Choopulu). They like each other instantly and get married. The spanner in the works is now thrown in by Bhagawan, who advises Hari that if he doesn't stand his ground and be dominating for the first few days, he will be doomed to be a hen-pecked husband and Janaki also does the same. This leads to the normally sensible Hari and Lakshmi trying to be one up with the other right from day one. Each wants to wait until the other blinks first, and so the marriage is never consummated.
When Bhagawan and Janaki go overboard in their suggestions eventually, things hit rock-bottom, Hari & Lakshmi decide to divorce. And this is when Hari's grandparents (Kota Srinivasa Rao & Geetanjali) come in. Ostensibly completely unaware of the situation, they insist that for the good of the family, the young couple should perform a ceremony that every newly-wed couple performs in the family (Dampatya Vratam). So Hari & Lakshmi go along with the old couple to the family's ancestral house in their village in coastal Andhra and start a week-long series of religious rituals, a well-planned series of psychological maneuvers. Meanwhile, Bhagawan and Janaki also realise that, it is just their couple's virtue of nobleness, not by their art of talent and they too advise Hari & Lakshmi to compromise. Finally, movie ends with first night of Hari & Lakshmi.
