  • Synopsis

    Brahmanna (Krishnam Raju) is a very powerful head of Kotipalli, a village that was never haunted by police. Being descendants of Bobbili clan, he settles several disputes between the people with his impartial judgments, before the table of justice - the sacred sword fixed to a huge tree trunk. Ravi (Krishnam Raju), his younger brother falls in love with Kasturi (Jayasudha). Rayudu (Rao Gopal Rao) is a wicked man who wants to occupy the chair of the village head. Rayudu does many crimes such as bus hijack to earn riches. One day Bullebbayi (Satyanarayana), son of Rayudu rapes Kasturi's elder sister named Swarajyam (Krishnaveni) in a graveyard. Ravi saves Swarajyam and brings the culprit to the table of justice. Brahmanna gives a justice that Rayudu should marry Swarajyam whom he molested. Rayudu performs abortion for his pregnant daughter-in-law. Rayudu creates a slander that Brahmanna is having an illegal affair with a woman by name Susheela (Annapoorna) staying in a hut on the outskirts of the village. Brahmanna reveals to his family and Rayudu that the woman whom he is looking after is the wife of a wrongfully accused man who was dead because of his justice.

    Rajeshwari (Aruna Mucherla), daughter of Brahmanna falls in love with Rambabu (Rajesh), Susheela's son. Brahmanna agrees for the marriage of Rajeshwari with Rambabu. In happiness, Rajeshwari goes to swing the cradle under a tree. Rayudu makes Rajeshwari fall on a man from the cradle. Rayudu creates a slander that the man was blinded because of Rajeshwari. Brahmanna gives a justice that Rajeshwari should marry the blind man. Ravi performs the secret marriage between Rambabu and Rajeshwari. Aggravated Brahmanna exiles Ravi from the village. Susheela comes to know the plan of Rayudu and informs to Brahmanna.

    Brahmanna takes out the powerful sword from the tree and slays the head of Rayudu at the hills in a chase and Brahmanna is arrested by the police.
