An opportunistic young man, Girisam, befriends a wise and righteous prostitute, Madhuravani. Girisam tries to woo a young woman, Buchamma, in the pretext of teaching English to her brother, Venkatesam. Ramappa Panthulu negotiates bride price for marrying off Venkatesam's 9 year old sister, Subbamma, to an old man, Lubdhavadhanulu, to which her father agrees. Subbamma's uncle, Karataka Sastry, decides to thwart the marriage with the help of his disciple, Mahesam.
