PlotEdit

Sahasra (Charmme Kaur) is a chorus singer struggling to make a career in playback singing. One night she attends a wild party at the behest of her friend. The next day, life seems as usual for Sahasra. However, she is oblivious of one small detail: the next day is actually the day after. She is also completely unaware of what happened during that one missing day. She realizes that something is amiss only when, a few days later, she is chased by unidentified men who try to eliminate her. The rest of the story is about finding the missing links and piecing together the jigsaw puzzle with the help of Suresh Reddy (Jagapati Babu) and Rajesh (Shashank) and how love blossoms between Rajesh and Sahasra.
