  • Synopsis

    Dr.Chakravarthy (Akkineni Nageswara Rao) arrives from abroad and plans to marry his lady love Dr.Sridevi (Krishna Kumari). He has an affectionate sister Sudha (Geethanjali). Chakravarthy is extremely fond of his sister. Sudha is a great musician and loves writing poetry and she gets married to a loving person. However, by the time Chakravarthy returns to his hometown, his sister is terribly ill and in last stages of her life. Chakravarthy gets distraught to know that his sister has cancer. Sudha requests Chakravarthy to marry her sister in law Nirmala (Sowcar Janaki) as a dying wish. Chakravarthy doesn’t get a chance to tell that he has already loved a woman in life. He suppresses the sadness and marries Nirmala as per his sister’s wish. Nirmala is a materialistic person who loves going around for picnics, shopping and doesn’t understand the artistic subtleties in life. Chakravarthy is a busy doctor with nonstop work dealing with patients, treatment and tests. He has nothing in common with Nirmala and their life goes on in a mechanical way, despite staying under one roof. The story makes a turn when Chakravarthy meets Ravindra (Jaggayya) and his wife Madhavi (Savitri). Madhavi is a great veena player and writes poetry exactly like Chakravarthy’s lost sister Sudha. Chakravathy starts feeling that his sister has returned in the form of Madhavi. He feels relief in visiting their house and speaking to Madhavi so that it’s like speaking to his own sister. Though Madhavi finds Chakravarthy’s behavior little odd in the beginning, her husband convinces her saying Chakravarthy is a very good gentleman.

    Meanwhile, Nirmala despises the affection of Chakravarthy towards Madhavi’s family. On the ill advice of the cook (Suryakantham), Nirmala writes a secret letter to Ravindra by wrongly quoting the friendship of Chakravarthy and Madhavi. Ravindra starts believing the cooked up story and hates Chakravarthy. He insults Madhavi without even considering that the latter is pregnant and in weakened condition. As the story reaches climax, Ravindra realizes that Chakravarthy only had sisterly affection but nothing else on Madhavi. Nirmala realizes her mistake of writing such wrong letter. Ravindra realizes his blunder and even names his new born son after Chakravarthy.
