The movie is a spiritual and mythological story, with a strong emphasis on devotion and faith. The story revolves around the life and times of a devotee named Manjunatha, who is an ardent follower of Lord Shiva. The film takes place in the town of Kurnool, where a wealthy businesswoman named Neelakanta (played by Amrish Puri) and his wife Parvathi (played by Meena) live. Neelakanta is a staunch follower of Lord Shiva and is known to perform various religious rituals to please the deity. One day, while performing one such ritual, he encounters a young boy named Manjunatha, who he takes in as his own son after being impressed by the boy's devotion.
