Plot / Movie Story / Movie Review
The movie begins with Vishwa (played by Naga Chaitanya) chasing a bunch of thieves who loots a store at a high raise building in some foreign location. Bhoome Gundranga song follows. Post-song, the anti-hero is introduced. The anti-hero is a mafia who has the business of smuggling girls amongst others. He kills one of his aid who fails to get the targeted number of girls. In the next scene, he is scene on a helipad atop a huge building with his brother. The two are in the process of meeting a mafia man who killed the prime minister of his country.
Vishwa completes his graduation studies in the US and returns to India. He lives with his brother Rajiv (played by Sriram) and sister-in-law (played by Sameeksha). One day, Vishwa presents a replica of a ship in a bottle and gifts it as a surprise to his SIL. The story flashes back to young days when Vishwa having lost his parents gets interested in ships because he can sail in them to meet his lost parents, as told by his brother.
Vishwa comes across a girl Priya / Ria (played by Kajal) at a skating rink. He meets Brahmandam and gets her address. Vishwa decides to win her heart. Priya's father is a rich businessman and is in the watch out a suitable alliance for her. Unhappy Priya moves fast in her car to a riverside. Vishwa follows her and introducies himself in the guise of pushing her for suicide. She accidently falls into the river and is saved by him. Godava Godava song follows.
Vishwa saves a girl from human trafficking from Bhai (a villain) who was punched and put to business loss visits Starbucks and gets the identity of Vishwa from CCTV footage. Vishwa saves 100 girls from being human trafficked abroad from the hands of the brother of RD. This puts a loss (rather opportunity loss?) of Rs. 100 crores for RD. Hence, Vishwa was put against dons Rahul Dev and Kelly Dorjee. The latter two are on the search for Vishwa.
Pirya's wedding is fixed to a rich industrialist tycoon and Vishwa needs to act quickly. The rich guy is so busy he feels he would have seen her directly instead of her photo before his wedding is fixed. He gifts her a watch and reminds that she is late by 10 minutes for their meeting. He also confirms her to come to his party tomorrow. Priya doesn't like all this.
Priya watches old films of her mother before she died. If not doing this, she clicks photographs and prints them. In short, she leads a boring life. She tries photography but Vishwa takes snaps of her taking photographs and surprises her. Priya and her father attend the party but she finds his father more interested in business talk than about her personal interests. Vishwa appears at the party and takes her for a drive. Earlier, he tells Janaki (played by Brahmanandam) that he is kidnapping Priya. He takes her to a street fight environment and gets challenged by her that he cannot beat the fighter. He fights and beats the opponent; the shooting scene is much like in Sherlock Holmes. Later, the two goes to his usual club where the characters of MS Narayana, Venu Madhav and Uttej (all comedy drunkards) are introduced. Telugu Bengali song follows where Vishwas impresses Priya with his dancing skills. She is dropped back at the party venue. The two shares a small duet at the car parking slot indicating the two are getting close to each other. After Priya met Vishwa, she begins to feel that he is the reason for her smiles and happiness.
Meanwhile, Bhai gets more clues about Vishwas and gets to know he frequents to Hotwheels Dragracing. Rahul Dev and Kelly Dorjee meets at the Hotweels venue and understands that Vishwas is their common enemy. Kelly kills the brother of Rahul Dev and gives three days time to catch the person responsible for their loss. Just then Rajiv arrives at the scene and it gets revealed that Rajiv works under RD. Rajiv is employed with a realtor (played by Tanikella Bharani) and marries his daughter. RD forces Rajiv to kill his father-in-law and was dragged to work under him. RD assigns the job of catching the person responsible for his loss to Rajiv.
Rajiv returns home and shares a cigar with Vishwa. Rajiv tells that a person was responsible for a project loss of Rs. 100 crores. Rajiv asks about what Vishwa has decided about Priya. Rajiv gets a call from the goons and he leaves immediately. Vishwa thinks of Priya and thinks of meeting her immediately. She sister who is sitting on a sofa gets to know this and in the course of conversation says that Vishwa is like their son.
During investigation, Rajiv gets to know about the Hotwheels poster but he rejects the idea that the person they are looking for is actually looking at the hotwheels poster. Rajiv and goons continues their search with newer plans and sources. Janaki lands in jail and shares room with Ali. He learns the jail escape plan of Ali. Few scenes of comedy come up.
Vishwa comes to the home of Priya and few romantic scenes follows. Her father who comes for a bottle discovers Priya is in the room and speaks with her. Vishwa leaves some film reels which shows how her mother met with a car accident. Diwali Deepaanni song follows. One day Janaki comes to his office to find some beautiful girls. The girls move aside revealing Ali who explains the plan as to how he escaped from the jail. Kelly continues to pressurise RD and angry RD kills the former's aide throwing him onto the blade of a private airplane.
One day Vishwa and Priya are seen by her fiancé. Priya introduces Vishwa as her boyfriend. The matter goes to her father where she tells her father that she is in love with Vishwa and that she wishes to marry her. Her father says no but her fiancé asks him to take a chance and meet Vishwa once. He agrees. Priya visits the home of Vishwa and likes her family. Chinnaga Chinnaga song follows.
Goons come to know Vishwa is actually the brother of Rajiv and tries to kill him. Vishwa comes to his rescue, saves him and gets to know the actual story. The two finally decides that they have to cause panic for RD. The two meets at RD's place. A huge fight and RD and Kelly (who comes there) also get killed.
Meanwhile, Priya and her fiancé are on car when they are stopped and threatened at gun point. The fiancé actually signs a deal with Kelly to kill Vishwas. A fight between Vishwa and the fiancé follows. The fiancé throws a lighter at the car in which Priya is held up. Vishwa savers her. Hellow Hellow song follows and the movie ends.
Naga Chaitanya made a wonderful move by accepting an action hero role just in time when everyone are saying he is more of a chocolaty lover boy in his movies. Kajal is shown glamorous. Anti-hero characters are too many to handle with.
