Somaraju (Prakash Raj) is a leading businessman in Vishakhapatnam. Mysamma (Mukesh Rishi) is a close member of Somaraju who handles his deals in Hyderabad. Mahalakshmi (Gowri Munjal) is Somaraju's daughter, and he dearly loves her. Bunny alias Raja (Allu Arjun) joins the same college as Mahalakshmi. He impresses her on the first day itself. Slowly, she falls in love with him. Somaraju, though reluctant initially, agrees to the marriage. Now, Raja has a condition that Somaraju should give his entire property to Raja as dowry. The rest of the story explains why Raja asks for Somaraju's property.

Raja's real father, Ranga Rao Bhupathi Raja (Sarath Kumar), is Mahalakshmi's maternal uncle. Bhupathi Raja was a great man with much land and property, as well as much regard from government and other people. When Mahalakshmi is born, her mother asks Bhupathi Raja to perform the baby naming ceremony and such. On Bhupathi Raja's way there, however, Somaraju attacks him with the help of a bunch of rowdies. They pretty much kill Bhupathi Raja and leave him to die in the forest. However, Bhupathi Raja manages to live and perform Mahalakshmi's ceremony, but he dies minutes after without telling anyone what happened.

Raja comes to know of this when his so-called father Rangaswamy (Sharat Saxena) explains to him that he is really his godfather and not his father. While trying to save him, his godfather and godmother (Sudha) give up their own son to keep him alive. To regain his rightful property, Raja fights Mysamma and wins his girl.
