Marriages are believed to be made in heaven.
It is every girl’s dream to have the perfect marriage but, unfortunately, it is not so in the real world.
For some, the dream is real, but reality changes course when destiny takes charge. In spite of having had a perfect marriage, some are fated to lead the tragic life of a spinster. The story is of one such ill-fated girl named Radhika.
In a pilgrimage town of Madhurapura near Mysore, lives Radhika a sweet and dedicated young daughter of Poornachandra Shastry and Devaki. Radhika was found abandoned as an infant in the temple managed by Poornachandra Shastry. Adopted and raised as a daughter, she is a homely, dutiful and hardworking girl. The biological daughter of Poornachandra Shastry is Vishaka, a happy-go-lucky girl aspiring to make it big as an actress in the Kannada film industry. She is a rebel to the rigid beliefs of her family. Subhadramma, the nagging mother of Poornachandra Shastry, dislikes Radhika and constantly finds reasons to harass her.
The Bharadwajas are a known name in Madhurapura. Jaganatha Bharadwaj is the head of the Bharadwaj family. He is a strict and a powerful businessman who has retained his family traditions and values. He returns to Madhurapura to see his birthplace and in the hope of an heir for his family. Rukmini is a supportive wife who, like her husband, honors the family name and values. They are accompanied by his mother, Kalyani Bharadwaj, a widow who is a staunch devotee of Lord Krishna. Also in the family are Vikas and Jhanvi; the older son and daughter-in-law respectively of the Bharadwaj family. Jhanvi’s jealousy and hatred for the family comes from this discomfort of being childless. The hopes of the family now lie upon the younger son Vishal, who is yet to be married.
Vishal is lured to visit Govardhangiri by his family, in the hope of finding him a bride in the holy pilgrimage town. Vishal comes to Madhurapura from London and falls in love with Radhika at the very first sight. His feelings are reinforced after he sees her on several other occasions. Radhika, at her end, feels the same love for Vishal, but refuses to accept it herself. Vishal’s search for Radhika’s identity ends with a switch of identity where he is told that the girl he is in love with is Vishaka.
