It's a traumatic marital life for Vasu. The husband is more bothered about his mother and sister but the wife, who does all the household work, feels slightly, insulted, neglected and hurt. Not because she has to do all the work but because her husband is indifferent to her. Add to that the mother-in-law's attempts to play spoilsport. The result: Vasu trips.
Vasu (Asha Saini) has dreams. She's intelligent. Has dreams. And has business sense too. A school teacher, Vasu would have wanted to buy a two-wheeler instead of going in a bus and getting late to school too often but the husband punctures her plans. The man goes to the extent of even slapping her. In a communal riot where the couple are caught, the husband even runs away leaving the wife in a desperate situation.
Help comes in the form of her husband's brother (Ravi Babu) who thoroughly understands Vasu's predicament and comes to her aid. Vasu finds consolation in him but this leads to a physical relationship.
Vasu's husband who comes to know of this confronts her. Vasu accepts her mistake. But then, she decides to push her case and show who drove her into such a situation. She blames her husband's indifference and her brother-in-law taking advantage of her in a weak moment.
The film told in flashback also has Swetha Basu Prasad playing the daughter of Vasu. Saveri (Swetha) is brought up in Mumbai by her single mother and in dramatic circumstances has to tell her story in flashback.
At the best, the film's story as picturised is regressive. The Telugu novel `Anaithikam' penned by Yandamuri is the basis of the story and the movie could surely have done much more to elevate a woman who has been pushed into a difficult situation by circumstances. As mentioned in the introduction of the film, it could be a story that is acted out in the everyday life of many people but the film maker could have brought about a change in the attitude of the family members to become a solace to the victim.
With nothing of that sort shown, the film ends with perhaps a hope that Vasu's daughter would forgive her for her wrong doing. A victim of circumstances may need a helping hand but Vasu had to suffer only condemning eyes staring at her.
how you wish you hadn't taken the lift that Sri (Varun Sandesh) so willingly offers to anyone who wants a drop! His journey is tiresome to say the least. It takes a long time to make a man out of the boy and the director's wisdom dictated that he use a woman in flesh trade (commercial sex worker, to use a politically correct term) to bring about the change in Sri.
