The premise of Jaya Jaya Jaya Jaya Hey focuses on Jaya, an ambitious girl hailing from a middle-class family. She is protected by her family members, who take all the decisions for her. However, importance is given to her brother’s future, owing to which her passion, studies and other interests are not given much importance. While the brother is sent to a reputed college, she is sent to another local college nearby, which may not help her excel in her achievements. Despite knowing her goals and dreams, her family is not supportive of them and decides to get her married before she completes her education.
They find Rajesh to be her suitable groom, and after understanding Jaya’s passion for studies, he supports her. However, Jaya soon finds out that Rajesh is short-tempered, an ill-manner, and often misbehaves by disregarding the people around him.

Rajesh and Jaya’s relationship gets affected, leading to domestic violence. She tells her family, who, instead of supporting her, asks her to manage and become an ideal wife. What Jaya does post this and the steps she takes for self-respect becomes the crux of the film.
