PlotEdit

Ganesh (Venkatesh) is from a middle-class family. He makes several bids to obtain employment but all in vain due to his poor language skills and inadequate educational qualifications. All his friends settle in life, but he continues to struggle in finding employment. Ganesh has two best friends Vasu (Srikanth), and Seenu (Sunil). His father (Kota Srinivasa Rao), who is a teacher, is always critical of him for being an irresponsible person. This just added to his list of woes.

At this juncture, Ganesh catches a glimpse of Keerthi (Trisha) and immediately falls in love with her. He learns that she works for a software solutions firm. Luckily for him, Ganesh finally secures employment in the same firm. Keerthi eventually turns out to be a short-tempered young woman. On a business trip, Ganesh accompanies her along with two other colleagues (Jeeva and Vinaya Prasad), to Australia. Here he reveals his feelings of love to her. She immediately turns him down, saying that she comes from an orthodox family, and her marriage has already been arranged with her cousin.

A depressed Ganesh returns to India thereafter. Unable to see his son in depression, his father decides to meet Keerthi. She insults him for recommending his son's love and accidentally slaps both Ganesh and his father. Later that night, Ganesh's father dies of a heart attack. In order to help change Ganesh's mood, Vasu manages to persuade him to come along to his family house in the country. Coincidentally, on the train journey, Keerthi is revealed to be Vasu's fiancée. However, their grandfather's (K. Viswanath) intention of getting them married earlier is put aside because Vasu and Keerthi leave the house to make their own identity. This causes heartache to their grandfather.

With the passing of a few days, the parents of Keerthi and Vasu decide to get them married to appease their grandfather. After several turns of events, Keerthi realizes that she is in love with Ganesh. Ganesh asks her to forget him, during a late night meeting, because he believes that it would create problems in their happy family. Keerthi's grandfather notices them conversing and admonishes Keerthi for bringing disrepute to their family and asks Ganesh to leave his village. Ganesh gets ready to leave when he sees everyone putting down the decorations for the wedding. Vasu tells him to go away, but Ganesh begs him to marry Keerthi. While Ganesh is on his way, the bunch of goons he saved the family from, sticks a knife in him and he is taken to the hospital. Seenu sarcastically tells Vasu that he forgot that Vasu doesn't like Ganesh. Everyone slowly leaves to go to the hospital, except Keerthi and her grandfather. Keerthi says that she will never disobey her grandfather. Afterward, Keerthi and her grandfather go to the hospital and Ganesh wakes up to go to the railway station. He sees that everyone is outside his room and he also sees Keerthi and Vasu's grandfather.

In time, the rest of Ganesh and Keerthi's family comes to stay with Ganesh for a few days. The movie ends when Ganesh and Keerthi became a happy couple and live together happily.

The music was composed by director Selvaraghavan's friend and "frequent" composer Yuvan Shankar Raja, teaming up again after producing successful Tamil albums such as Kaadhal Kondein (2003), 7G Rainbow Colony (2004) and Pudhupettai (2006). This film remains their last collaboration (Even though later they rejoined in 2017 for Nenjam Marappathillai) before they split up and Sri Raghava decided to work with another composer. The soundtrack was released on 28 March 2007 at Rama Naidu studios.[3][4] It features 6 tracks overall with lyrics by Kulasekhar, Kandi Konda, Sirivennela Sitaramasastri and Chandrabose. Four of the songs were later reused in the Kannada remake of the film, Anthu Inthu Preethi Banthu.

Upon the film's release, the music received positive reviews, being praised as "extraordinary",[5] winning composer Yuvan Shankar Raja much accolades and a nomination at the 2008 Filmfare Awards South for Best Music in Telugu.[6]
