Plot

Kalicharan (Chiranjeevi) is a rowdy who kidnaps all the leading rowdies from different parts of the state working under two rivals (Rao Gopal Rao and Nutan Prasad), and provides them with good jobs. Asha (Bhanupriya) has interest in him and assists with his good deeds. To get rid of this "state rowdy," the villains came to know that he has a mother and a cousin, Radha (Radha), and informed them on his whereabouts.

It is known that Kali is actually Prithvi who was aspiring to become a police officer but could not get the job due to Laajmani (Sharada), even though he performed well at the interview and tests. He becomes an outlaw due to this and turns as state rowdy to get rid of all the other rowdies by taking law into his own hands.

When his mother and Radha see him, he is forced to reveal the secret that he is actually a police informer working for Laajmani to bring criminals to justice. Laajmani has lost her husband and daughter in fighting the villains.

Later, it is learnt that Asha is Laajmani's daughter, and she gets accused of murdering Rao Gopal Rao's younger brother (Thiagarajan). The rest of the story forms on how she is acquitted with Kali's help, and how Kali and Laajmani get rid of their enemies by bringing them to justice.
