Bharani is a family drama with action elements. Bharani (Vishal) is angry young man. His friends fondly call him Cheddodu because he can easily fight with anyone. Moreover he can't tolerate if anyone comments on his uncle Srinivasa Bhoopathy (Prabhu).

Meanwhile, not knowing that Shankuntala Devi is his aunt, Bharani runs into a love problem with her daughter Bhanu (Bhanu). The rest of the film is how Bharani brings back his aunt and uncle together.
