Ghunuram, an amateur street performer, acts as a Tiger in the ‘Tiger Dance’ in his village. This year he hopes to get engaged to the daughter of his fellow performer. At the time of the performance, they face competition from a circus with a leopard that has come to town. To his dismay, the girl Ghunuram likes has gone gaga over a circus performer. Not to be outdone by this development, he decides to fight the leopard in a Tiger (vs.) Leopard challenge.
