Synopsis
Mohan (Upendra) returns to Bengaluru from the west after ‘educating’ himself with a double degree. He reels under the influence of the west so much that he finds the Indian traditions and customs to be senseless. He is also an heir to the legacy left by his departed jamindar father.

Mohan starts visiting a prostitute Kantha (Ramya Krishna) everyday. After looking at his bad behavior, his mother marries him off to a traditional girl Chandra (Abhirami). But he still continues to live with Kantha and transfers all his property to Kantha. Life throws him major hurdles, one after the other.
