Sastri is a very popular Carnatic singer. He is immersed in sangeeta rasaamruta (Nectar of Music) with his nirantara saadhana (uninterrupted practice). People come in huge numbers to listen to his voice and consider him a great man. He has mastered the raga Sankarabharanam and hence is eponymous with the same. Tulasi, (Manju Bhargavi) is a prostitute’s daughter who has great interest in music and dance. She is also an admirer of Sastri and learns music from him when he used to teach his own daughter along the riverside. But her mother wants her to become a prostitute to earn money.One day a rich client
of her mother’s rapes Tulasi. He insults Sastri saying that now that he is done with Tulasi, she could go and flirt with Sastri all she wanted. Enraged by the disgrace towards Sastri, her guru, she kills the client. Sastri tries to save her by consulting his lawyer brother (Allu Ramalingaiah), who wins the case in Tulasi’s favour and her mother is sent to jail. Then Sastri brings her to his home where other people insult him, as Tulasi is a murderer
and daughter of a prostitute, while Sastri is a devout Brahmin. Tulasi moves out of his house as she does not want him to be insulted because of her but hopes to show her gratitude towards him.Ten years have passed, pop music is now popular in India and Sastri loses his classical music audience. He now lives in a small house with his grown up daughter. When Tulasi comes to know of Sastri’s plight she tries to help him financially but gives
the money through someone else.
