Thyagayya (Tyagaraja) lives in a village, spending his time writing Ramakoti and composing devotional music to Lord Rama. As he is struggling to complete his work, saint Narada appears in his dream and hands him over a book called 'Swararnam' about music, and when he wakes up, he finds the book. He becomes popular with his music and gets an invitation from the King of Tanjore to perform in the royal court. Thyagayya gently turns down the offer and returns the gifts sent by the king. Thyagayya's elder brother, Japesen, abandons him as he is not earning and is depending on him. Thyagayya continues his music composition for Lord Rama. Japesen conspires with a royal dancer, Chapala, and steals Swararnam along with the idols of Thyagayya. The sudden disappearance of idols saddens Thyagayya and he sets on a journey to bring back the idols.
