Raktha Sambandham revolves around the loving relationship of the two siblings, Rudra Pratap and Bhagya Lakshmi.

Rudra Pratap marries Kanaka Durga, who hails from a rich family and being an only child, is used to having her way always; while Bhagya Lakshmi marries Sambayya, an orphan who is raised by her family.
Vowing to continue the hereditary of the family, Kanaka Durga promises to bear a boy child or kill herself if she has a girl. Fate has different plans for Krishna Priya and Kanaka when they give birth at the same time; Kanaka, a beautiful baby girl (Tulasi) and Krishna Priya, a baby boy (Aditya). Fearing that her sister-in-law would harm herself, Bhagya decides to switch babies before Kanaka wakes up. As time goes by, Tualsi grows up to be a strong and independent girl while Aditya is over-protected by his mother and is timid. Over time, tables are turned and Tulasi and Aditya get married; Tualsi enters her own home as the daughter-in-law to her birth mother, Kanaka Durga. Would she be able to change the circumstances around her and whether she gets to know that Kanaka Durga is her mother, forms the crux of the story.
Gundamma Katha is the story of an overweight girl, Geetha, who gets taunted for her obesity while Ram spends his entire life dreaming of settling down with a doll of a woman.
