Bujji (Prabhas) and Chitti (Trisha) are inseparable childhood friends. One day while they are playing, Chitti gets angry as her sandcastle was destroyed by Bujji. She scolds him and tells him to go away from her and never meet her again. When he pleads her, she asks him to prove his sincerity by staying away from her for 12 years and promises to marry him if he does so. Though devastated, Bujji reluctantly agrees to stay away from her and moves to Chennai to keep a distance. Meanwhile, Chitti's family moves to Hyderabad, cutting all ties from Bujji's family.

Bujji grows up in Chennai and becomes a hooligan though he preserves his soft nature and his love for Chitti. After 12 years he comes back to meet Chitti but gets caught up in a small brawl and ends up in jail. There he meets the sons (Ajay, Supreeth) of Machi Reddy (Kota Srinivasa Rao), and they offer him one crore to finish off Sivanna (Mohan Babu). Bujji thinks that he could save money for his married life and agrees, but when Bujji tries to kill Sivanna, he is injured. Sivanna gets impressed with his innocence and purity and asks him to stay with him for a while. He stays there on the name of Rajinikanth, Bujji's favorite actor.

Later Bujji meets Meghana whose real name is Chitti (Trisha) and is Sivanna's sister. However, Bujji is unable to recognize her as Chitti. After few events, Bujji at last comes to know that Meghana was Chitti and tries to reveal that to her, but Sivanna stops him, saying that Meghana would only stay with him until she finds Bujji, as she actually hates her brother since he was responsible for his wife's death. When Machi learns that he is part of Sivanna's gang, his sons shoot Chitti, kidnap Sanjana, and say to switch her for Sivanna. Chitti sends Bujji to save Sivanna. Bujji manages to thrash all the goons. Chitti gets saved, reunites with Bujji, and lives with Sivanna.
