Plot / Movie Story / Movie Review
Govindu (Manoj) is an aimless guy youngester enjoying the cash of his grandfather Shastri (Chandra Mohan) who is a priest (pujari). The movie begins with Govindu wanting to commit suicide and in the process he stumbles across with Venkat (Posani Krishna Murali), a software engineer, who also wants to do the same. The duo share their stories and circumstances.
Govindu reveals about his love with Vaidehi (Simran), Mumtaz (Sakshi), Stacy (Rachel) and finally with Geetha (Anupriya). Shastri gets elevated as a modern grandfather after he gives his money to Govindu in his first love is with a Brahmin girl Vaidehi. However he feels that he can make much better use of the money than getting married to the girl and hence moves on.
Later, he moves to Stacy (Rachel), a gori girl after pulling her from her boyfriend. He eyes on the diamond ring that her boyfriend had gifted her and wants that diamond ring so that he can buy a big car after selling it. His plan fails when she tells him she threw away the ring. Hence, he throws her away out of his life. His bid with a Christian girl too fails.
His next lady is Mumtaz (Sakshi Chowdhury) who reciprocates love but they soon get separate. A drunk Govind brags with his friends that he will have no hesitation to dump her if a don that he knows sets his eyes on her. Mumtaz is hurt with such talk. She asks him to go take a walk. Of course, you'd want to take Mumtaz' side and tell her she did the right thing. Our man feels the only thing right that is to be done is go on with life. He finds someone who he thinks can be his wife. Mary (Anu Priya) takes care of orphan girls giving them coaching in sports they want to excel. She's the one he will tie the knot with. But he's caught by the police. Govind realises his life has been tied in knots.
