In other village,Maheswar Rao is a respected village chief who lives with his uncle family. Maheswar Rao and his cousin Chakram are known for being short-tempered persons.
Suryam is invited to open a rice shop in a remote village. After the ceremony, Suryam and his car driver baabi (Ali (actor)) are on their way home to their village. Suryam then stops the car in order to buy some fruits in market. In his village, nobody would not take money for his shopping which makes him uncomfortable so he prefers to do shopping in surrounding villages. At the market, Suryam pulls the Prameela(Soundarya) hand to save her from an approaching snake. Unfortunately, only Ali and Suryam seem to have noticed the snake. Soundarya makes a big fuss of the event by assuming Suryam to be a rogue. Maheswara Rao and Chakram beat him up in public without taking notice of his defence.
The land broker and family friend Trimurtulu sees the injured Suryam in that village, Suryam says it was just a misunderstanding. The angry Trimurtulu goes to that market and he makes the villagers understand that they have done a huge mistake, he warns that this incident may lead to serious consequences if Suryam's villagers come to know the truth. Maheswar Rao and Chakram realize their mistake and regret the incident. In the meantime, Suryam warns his driver not to talk about the humiliating incident to anyone and pretends the injuries were due to an accident.
Once back home, the man of honour Suryam lies to the villagers that he had a car accident. Baabi, who was frustrated and angry of the incident, finally disclose the matter to the villagers that same night. Meanwhile, as per his uncle's advice, Maheswara Roa goes on horseback to Suryam's Village on the very night to seek an apology. When he discloses the incident to Suryam's mother, she beats him but Suryam stops her. Maheswar falls at Suryam's feet and begs for an apology, the kind Suryam forgives him and Maheswar returns to his village.
Suryam's villagers get angry after knowing about the incident and they all go to Maheswar village with Aruvals (Billhooks) without warning Suryam. They create a mess in Maheshwar village, and set fire on their houses. The riot causes the death of many villagers including Maheswar's family and Prameela's mother.
The next morning, Maheswar finally comes to his village, he notes the damage and deaths. The district collector and the police arrive at Suryam's village to tell him to be safe, and that they will now handle the issue between the two villages. Suryam gets furious with his driver and his village people when he comes to know about the previous night's riot. Maheswar feels betrayed by Suryam and he sees the destruction of Maheswar's Village as Suryam's cunning plan, an angry Maheswar then destroys Suryam's statue in front of Suryam's villagers.
The quod Prameela, Chakram,Narayana Rao and Maheswar vow to take revenge on Suryam in a similarly cunning fashion. Later, Suryam wants to help financially the victims but they refuse his money. Suryam offers to marry Prameela, as she has nobody left in her life to live with but she sees this as an opportunity to destroy Suryam. Both Maheswar and Chakram are also convinced so.
