Here comes the introduction of the protagonist Ajay. He is Mahendra's nephew. Mahendra has three sisters, one of whom is the mother of Girija (Sheena Shahabadi). After some comedy and friendly banter, Girija falls in love with Ajay. Mahendra orders his family not to go out of town. Despite this, Ajay leaves the city with his two cousins to get a cake for Girija's birthday. She makes a bet that should he get the cake, she will give kiss him. While returning, the trio stop near a dhaba to get some pakoras. They are attacked by Seshadri's youngest son, who has been staying near the dhaba and maintaining it as his stronghold because he refuses to come home until he fulfills his revenge of killing at least one of Mahendra's family members. Ajay rescues himself and his cousins in time. But Mahendra gets mad and asks him to leave his house. Ajay reaches the railway station to catch the train so that he can go back to his place. Before boarding the train, he watches news that there was a bomb attack on everyone back in town. Soon, he leaves for his Purushottam Naidu's aka "Guruji" (Vijaya Kumar) place and takes his advice. Then, Ajay enters into Seshadri's house with the help of his son-in-law (Sunil) and tries to change everyone. By uniting Seshadri's elder son with his wife and children & his younger son (Subbaraju) with his fiancee, he is almost at his goal. One celebratory day, he convinces them that they should not harm Mahendra's family but they can do whatever they wish with Mahendra. One of Seshadri's friends recognizes Ajay and reveals Ajay's secret.
