Plot / Movie Story / Movie Review
Sagar (played by Jagapathi Babu) is an innocent and fun loving guy and lives with his mother, a sister and cute kids in his gully. Rajya Laxmi (played by Saakshi Sivanand) enters into scene and bumps into Sagar with a cycle first. Later, she bumps to a kinetic Honda and later to a Honda Car. With each of the scenes, love blossoms and increases between the two. One day, Rajya Laxmi rolls onto Sagar by calling him a 'Boppaskai' (papaya). Sagar's family meets the family of Rajya Laxmi to fix up the match. At the same time, his sister too gets engaged to a guy.
Chepala Krishna (played by Tanikella Bharani) is a noted smuggler in Vizag. Chepala Nani (Ravi Teja) is his younger brother. Both of them rule the rowdy world in the steel city. Chepala Krishna has an ambition of a life time of becoming an MLA.
Krishnam Raju (played by Sivaji Raja) is the sub-inspector of police for that area. Sri Hari (played by Sri Hari) is the Circle Inspector. He is the most dreaded and honest police officer. With the help of Krishnam Raju, he gets to know about all the criminals in that area and Chepala Krishna tops the most wanted criminals list.
When Chepala Krishna is about to file his nominations for the post of an MLA, he gets arrested by Sri Hari. Sri Hari makes sure that Chepala Krishna would not go to assembly by booking him as a rowdy sheeter. Since Chepala Krishna has a criminal case against him, he cannot contest in the elections.
One fine day a stranger tips off Sri Hari that Chepala Nani is doing smuggling at a particular place. Sri Hari spots Nani and starts chasing him with the help of Krishnam Raju. Sister of Sagar marriage arrangements are going in a full swing. Sagar goes to bazaar to buy something. As the chase gang (Nani, Sri Hari and Krishnam Raju) enters a gully, Nani shoots Sri Hari with a country revolver. From the back side Krishnam Raju finishes Sri Hari with his police revolver. Sagar enters the scene and try to rescue Sri Hari only to get caught and implicated in the murder case of Sri Hari by Krishnam Raju.
Chepala Krishna takes all the precautions to make sure that Sagar is sentenced for his life. All this story is shown as a flash back in the first half as the dejected Sagar, sitting in a cell, ponders about his good old days. Nukaraju (Prakash Raj) is a humble constable, who is transferred to the Chepala Krishna's area. He is an avid admirer of late Sri Hari. Sagar's mother gets hospitalized when she resists Chepala Nani who tried to rape the sister of Sagar. Nukaraju is on the duty to accompany Sagar to the hospital to visit Sagar's mom. There Sagar gives Nukaraju a slip and escapes from the hospital. Sagar sets his target on three people - Chepala Krishna, Chepala Nani and Krishnam Raju and takes revenge.
