The story revolves around Geetha (Akshata Rao), a college-going young girl who is the daughter of a wealthy businessman. She leads a privileged life and is used to getting everything she wants. However, her life takes a turn when she falls in love with Prasad (Shankar Nag), a simple and hardworking young man who comes from a humble background.
Initially, Geetha's father disapproves of their relationship as he believes that Prasad is not good enough for his daughter. However, over time, he realizes that Prasad's honesty and integrity are more important than his wealth and status. He eventually gives them his blessing and they get married.
However, their happiness is short-lived as Geetha's father suffers a financial setback and is forced to sell their ancestral home. Geetha and Prasad try their best to save the property, but their efforts are in vain. They are forced to leave the house and move to a small apartment.
Geetha finds it difficult to adjust to her new life and is unable to come to terms with the fact that she has lost everything she held dear. Prasad, on the other hand, takes it in his stride and remains optimistic about their future. He works hard to provide for his family and is determined to give Geetha the life she deserves.
As the years pass, Geetha realizes the value of Prasad's love and sacrifices. She begins to appreciate the simple things in life and becomes more content with what she has. She also becomes more involved in social service activities and begins to make a difference in the lives of others.
The film is a beautiful portrayal of love, sacrifice, and the importance of staying grounded in the face of adversity. Shankar Nag delivers a stellar performance as Prasad and brings out the nuances of his character with finesse.
