Madhav Acharya (Akkineni Nageswara Rao), a temple priest in a village along with his mother (Santha Kumari), a son, and younger brother, Gopi (again Akkineni Nageswara Rao). Madhava is a believer of god, he is very much respected by villagers and believed that he encounters mystic experiences whenever he sees Lord Krishna (Sobhan Babu) and Gopi is a non-believer of god. Troubles will plague him after he finds out that Gopi has not only been creating problems for Seshadri (Nagabhushanam) the village head but has also fallen in love and wants to get marry Radha, the daughter of Seshadri's sister. Taking this as an advantage Seshadri separates Madhava & Gopi and an old ruined house of their grandfather is given to Gopi as his share. Gopi modifies and establishes a school in it. Before Madhava could even attempt to resolve these issues, the keys of the temple are taken away from him by Seshadri, and he can no longer pray nor converse with Lord. Things come to a boil after he is told that Gopi has forcibly taken the keys, and Seshadri has stolen all the temple's jewelry, when they are searching for it a treasure of Madhava & Gopi's ancestors is been found Madhava says he will use the treasure for development and Gopi argues that the school which will lead to progress and not the temples. Rest of the story is who wins the bet.
Music composed by Chakravarthy. Music released on Audio Company.
