Due to this, Ranganatham gets a paralytic attack and becomes handicapped. He loses all his money in repaying his son's debts. Raja loves a girl named Rekha (Vanisri), but sacrifices his love so that he can marry a rich blind girl named Shanti (B. Saroja Devi) to raise enough money to arrange Sudha's marriage. On the wedding day, he comes to know that Rekha is the sister of Shanti he is marrying. How will Raja handle this new situation? Will Shanti learn the truth?
