Set in a rural backdrop, Iddaru Ammailu revolves around the lives of two sisters and their relationships with two men. The film begins with Raghupathi (Akkineni Nageshwara Rao), an educated and socially progressive man, returning to his village after completing his studies. He meets the beautiful and admirable Sridevi (Vanisri), the eldest daughter of Neelakantha Sastry (S.V. Ranga Rao), a respected and traditional brahmin in the village. Impressed by her intelligence, Raghupathi falls in love with Sridevi and proposes to marry her. However, Sridevi's father disapproves of their relationship since Raghupathi belongs to a different caste and believes in modern ideologies.

Meanwhile, Neelakantha Sastry has another daughter, Lalita (also played by Vanisri), who is completely opposite to her sister. She is ill-tempered, rash, and indulges in rebellious behavior. Lalita despises the attention her father showers on Sridevi, considering her as the ideal daughter. Lalita also gets into frequent arguments with Raghupathi, leading to misunderstandings and clashes between them.

As the story progresses, circumstances lead to Neelakantha Sastry fixing Lalita's marriage with Raghupathi, unaware of the love and hatred that exists between the two. Raghupathi, caught in a dilemma, decides to accept the proposal out of respect for his future father-in-law. On the other hand, Sridevi, who is well aware of her sister's temperament, sacrifices her love for Raghupathi to ensure Lalita's happiness.

The plot takes an interesting turn when Sridevi's selfless act of sacrificing her love is revealed to Lalita. Understanding her sister's sacrifice, a change of heart occurs in Lalita, and she decides to unite Raghupathi and Sridevi. With the help of their family friends and a series of events filled with humor, emotions, and drama, the movie showcases the efforts made by Lalita to rectify her mistakes and bring happiness to the lives of her sister and Raghupathi.

Iddaru Ammailu captures the essence of the traditional and conservative rural society while also highlighting the struggles faced by individuals who challenge societal norms and values.
