Hanumanth Dasu (Akkineni Nageshwara Rao) and his brother-in-law Rangadasu (Murali Mohan) belong to a Haridasa family. Neelakhantam (Satyanarayana) is a cruel landlord in their village. Neelakhantam molests Bhagavathar Yashodamma (K. R. Vijaya), a local woman of the village. After this, she leaves the village along with Thirumaladasu (Bhanuchander), son of Hanumathu Dasu with intention of giving him a good education. After 20 years, Tirumaladasu returns to the village as a collector. At first, he pretends that he is supporting Neelakhantam, but he reveals his plan when Neelakhantam tries to acquire the government land. He takes bribes from different landlords and uses it to acquire the land by the villagers. Neelakhantam plans to destroy the village with the help of other landlords. But Tirumaladasu stops him by using his powers. On the other side, the villagers unite to kill Neelakhantam. But Hanumath Dasu pacifies them by telling that violence is not the solution to resolve a problem. Finally, Neelakhantam also realizes his mistake and sheds all his weapons to become a good man.
