Contrary to an age-old tradition, Wickrama meets Punna’s parents to propose to marry their daughter. His sincerity attracts the old couple and he also wins the heart of Punna’s brother and sisters. But Wickrama manages to obtain the dowry money in advance from the father. The latter suddenly dies of a heart attack. Punna does not take long to realise Wickrama’s duplicity.
